Detroiters: Season 1 Reviews

August 8, 2018
In the end, this is a comedy by natives for natives and residents near and far. It's that undeniable sense of pride and ownership that will make you "stand up and tell 'em you're from Detroit" between bouts of laughter and smiles.

Richardson and Robinson's laid back approach to rolling out comedy - and especially the former's addictively amiable nature - makes for consistent chuckles that can develop into hearty guffaws.

There is no ridiculous moment whose boundaries can't be pushed that much further, into even more ridiculous territory.

Richardson and Robinson make for likable leads and Detroiters is savvy and funny in many ways, but what really made it work for me was the admirable affection that comes from its love for Detroit.

Indeed, it is steeped in contemporary, busted-up Detroit. But it amounts to a so-so comedy.

Detroiters stars Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson are both improv vets, and real-life best friends; that might be why their new Comedy Central series leverages their characters' affection for each other to such excellent effect.

The mood is whimsical; oddballs abound.

A likable idiocy that works nicely, as might be expected, given the show's pedigree - its executive producers include Jason Sudeikis and Lorne Michaels.

As is fitting for a show named after a place, Detroiters is a state of mind - a nice place to visit and stay awhile, to enjoy the world in a completely different headspace.
