Critic Reviews for Hap & Leonard Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (13)

As the Southern day gets hotter, Hap and Leonard just gets more and more entertaining. It will be too slow for some, but you're likely to enjoy the heat.

The joy comes in watching these characters bounce off each other and crack skulls.

Purefoy and Williams are standouts throughout while Hendricks pretty much settles in. The bloody goings-on apart from their fractious triangle can be jolts from out of the blue. But there's always some cauterizing banter just around the corner.

The unevenness is not a deal-breaker. When Hap and Leonard does strike the right swampy tone, and you sense the alligators waiting for a human snack, it's rich.

Hap and Leonard is full of memorable characters that it introduces with panache then idles with, reiterating what we already know, a #longform piece that would be better if it were not so long. (Brevity! Remember when it was the soul of wit?)

It's violence, adventures, friendship, dark humor. A curious combination that works and that has the crime novel as center. [Full Review in Spanish]

Superb, atmospheric southern noir. Well worth watching for fans of Cold in July. Purefoy and Williams are superb.

Mar 2, 2016 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Hap and Leonard adapts Joe R. Lansdale's novels (which I'm now eager to read) into a terrifically offbeat caper, serving up a sultry, sexy stew of wry dark humor with flashes of psycho suspense.

Mar 2, 2016 | Full Review…

The show has atmosphere aplenty -- that's one excellent quality it shares with Mickle and Damici's Cold In July; Hap and Leonard could use more of that film's tightly-coiled suspense.

Mar 1, 2016 | Full Review…

The sleepy, swampy ambience is tangible. The characters are appealing, if a little thin around the edges.
