Flipped: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Flipped

Critics Consensus

Flipped's formatting doesn't do it many favors, but Kaitlin Olson and Will Forte dig into their characters with such skill and delight that it's hard not to have a good time anyway.

Critic Reviews for Flipped Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (9)

The big swerves at the end of every episode fit in with what [Will] Forte and [Kaitlin] Olson do best: taking their characters way, way too far.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It won't be to everyone's taste - Forte and Olsen's characters are terrible people, and the show relishes demonstrating that - but I liked it well enough.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Although the story takes multiple turns, one thing that remains consistent throughout Flipped is Olson and Forte's surprisingly sweet dynamic.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

At least better than Murder House Flip, because stars Kaitlin Olson and Will Forte are likeable and funny. But it isn't really playing to the platform's strengths if, after three episodes, the show hasn't even fully established its premise.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

The show comes from Funny or Die, but the execution hews toward the latter.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

"Jann" and "Cricket" are roles that Forte and Olson, both seasoned pros at playing off-kilter narcissists, could play in their sleep, so it's no surprise that their joint deranged energy keeps "Flipped" moving at a steady clip.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Hilarity ensues due mostly to the comedic genius of those two leads.

May 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Flipped would normally be a very easy comedy to recommend, but the experience of watching a show on Quibi is nothing but unpleasant.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There are moments when Flipped shines... But outside that, their characters are far too grating and one-note for the meta-narrative around it, especially when they run into the people whose money they just stole.

May 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson are hilarious in this absurd depiction of two people oblivious to their own mediocrity who nevertheless luck their way into a more successful position.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Forte and Olson are both extremely broad here, practically shouting their lines over one another, but there's a silly vibe that helps make Flipped watchable.

May 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Everything feels so expected. The punchlines land with a thud. Each seven-minute chunk ends before it revs up and gets its energy.

Audience Reviews for Flipped: Season 1

  • Aug 31, 2020
    Has some solid laughs but comes across as an overly long Saturday Night Live sketch.

    Are o idee si o actrita si nu mare lucru in rest

    Formulaic and goofy for the sake of being goofy. It's unusual to see this particular level of "automatic comedy" without a laugh track. As for a swerve or payoff at the end of each episode: that's like having to eat a bowl of flour for one bite of a Dollar Store snack cake.

    Alright do first things first, if you don't know this show is exclusive to a recently new streaming app on smartphones called Quibi. This is the first show I have watched on Quibi and I currently have a free three month trial. Shows on Quibi are cut into bite-sized episodes that are less then 10 minutes long. Flipped staring Will Forte (Main character on Last Man on Earth) has 1 season and 11 episodes as of now. I just finished the final episode and I have to say the show is absolutely hilarious in every possible way. The plot of the show keeps growing and eventually you find yourself wanting a second season but it is well worth watching it whether you binge or spread it over a few days. The two main actors are very witty and play their roles properly and amazingly. I strongly recommend trying Quibi out and mainly because of Flipped. Hopefully season 2 is in the works and comes out soon.
