Jean-Claude Van Johnson: Season 1 (2016 - 2017)


Season 1
Jean-Claude Van Johnson

Critics Consensus

Jean-Claude Van Damme parodies his own martial arts image with world-weary grace, but this series' scattershot laugh ratio and limited production value could leave viewer reaction as split as the star's thighs.

    JCVD came from Belgium to America, He played 1st degree roles to make his way into the "cultural" landscape of the US, but with age, he grew wise and delivers a 2nd degree humor show that displays his true DNA ! Goed gedaan ! Jean Claude ! Keep going this way !

    This is absolutely hilarious, JCVD is not afraid to let loose and make fun of himself, this is some of his best work late in his career. It is not just worth binging, it is worth binging and then binging it again immediately.
  • Dec 15, 2020
    A mediocre series, with lazy storytelling and fairy decent action scenes
  • Oct 26, 2020
    I watched the first three episodes and the series is so stupid and exaggerated that I have to say that it is really good.
  • Sep 27, 2020
    This is incredible! The bonkers nature of the story, all the cast is incredible SPECIALLY Van Damme! As JCVD or as Philip, he is a joy to watch. The drama-like comedy, or comedy-like drama is well paced and toned, making de balls to the wall parts just at home as the man trying to get back to the one he loves. Cut short too soon for sure.
  • Jul 26, 2020
    An absolute blast thanks to a self-depreciating and extremely funny JCVD.
  • Apr 16, 2020
    Still waiting for season 2
  • Dec 08, 2019
    Plain brilliance. Some excesses. Nonetheless, the absence of a second season is a travesty.
  • Nov 04, 2019
    Jean Claude Van Johnson is exactly what every 80's kid needed to both appreciate and lovingly laugh at our own childhood entertainment. It's self-aware, it uses its own cliches for comedic value, and is everything you'd want in a nostalgic action comedy. That Amazon only gave it one season is a tragedy.
  • Aug 06, 2019
    This show is simultaneously a finely-honed parody of a genre and one of the best entries in that genre. It oscillates between over-the-top sarcasm and down-to-earth sincerity without the jarring disconnect that so many other attempts create. It has a hilarious premise and a bonkers execution, continually upping the ante of what the audience will believe while constantly poking fun at the more ridiculous elements of film making. It's fairly consistent throughout, so if it doesn't grab your attention off the bat then you can safely give this one a miss. But if even the premise sparks your interest, definitely check this one out. Closest comparison: It's like Mission: Impossible by way of Hail, Caesar! Setting: Spy Thriller Plot: 80's Action Tone: Action Comedy
