Critic Reviews for Drunk History: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (9)

"Drunk History" is a good-natured show with no inflated aspirations. But like a drunk in a game of darts, it doesn't hit the target very often.

The show gleefully subverts the whole historical documentary format, as it mocks the kind of re-creations we see on the History Channel, complete with cheesy wigs and costumes and an over-dramatic soundtrack.

Just as people either drink or don't, you'll get it or you won't.

When you have talent like Adam Scott (John Wilkes Booth), Bob Odenkirk (Nixon) and Jack Black (Elvis) on hand, why not let them improv their own material? They're wasted as puppets trapped in this sad, thin vaudeville.

More often than not, watching "Drunk History" is like being the only sober person at a party where none of the people present are your friends.

March 13, 2015 | Full Review…

It's epic, hilarious and totally tasteless. But "Drunk History" is not for the reverent-or teetotalers for that matter. (If you don't find overserved individuals slightly amusing, look away!)
