Graves: Season 1 (2016)

SEASON:

Season 1
Graves

Critics Consensus

Graves squanders the talent of its star, Nick Nolte, and lacks the sharp satire needed to live up to its claim as a political dramedy.

  • Jan 31, 2020
    This political comedy series is seriously pee I'm your pants funny. Considering today's political climate it's all the more interesting. Classic Nick Nolte kind of character.
  • Dec 11, 2019
    Achingly unfunny like a bad CBS sitcom, couldn't take anymore
  • Aug 19, 2019
    Underrated (note audience vs. critics). Some relief from politics without giving up politics -- and some welcome feel-good where little can be expected from reality.
  • Feb 02, 2017
    Love this show. My new favorite!
  • Jan 23, 2017
    Funny, intelligent and very well acted. Sela Ward is amazing, as is Nick Nolte and the supporting cast.
  • Dec 10, 2016
    Wasn't expecting much, but was massively surprised at how hilarious this show is. Binged the first 8 episodes on demand and laughed my ass off right through.
  • Nov 15, 2016
    I love the show feels timely for sure. It's like a sad veep with funny moments. Love the cast and the idea of the show. I am very interested to see where they take it. I hope they give it some room to find its way. I see other reviews are not so great I wonder if they watched all the shows you need to let it soak in I think. I love the show. But I also loved 48 hours.
