Critic Reviews for Killjoys Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

Like a fixer-upper house with good bones, a few light renovations may be all Killjoys needs to transform into something worth inhabiting.

Jun 19, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

This show is slick and sexy with great characters and snappy dialogue.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Killjoys has just the right mix of guns, high-tech knives, assassins, cage fights, missions to hostile planets, dark secrets, tiny robot weapons and general space headbutting thrills to be the perfect treat for Friday nights.

May 22, 2018 | Full Review…

It has enough "fun" elements to not be written off completely, but to call it anything more than "fun" would be false.

Jun 15, 2015 | Full Review…

The overall result is an edgy and suspenseful romp that does more than just frantically recycle tropes, making Killjoys one mosh pit you might want to jump back into.

Jun 27, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Cursing, constant violence in alluring, quippy sci-fi show.

Jun 30, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

By far, the interpersonal dynamics and relationships between Dutch, Johnny and D'Avin are the most addictive part of the show.

Jun 22, 2015 | Full Review…

Predictability wasn't Killjoys' big problem, it was the mundanity of it all.

Jun 22, 2015 | Full Review…

It's not a show for everyone, but it fits the mood for late night summer binge-watching fairly easily, and its leads are charismatic.

Jun 20, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

I won't be a killjoy and force comparisons with other more distinguished space operas, but after so much grim tidings in recent fantasy fare on TV, maybe it's time for a lark.

Jun 19, 2015 | Full Review…

Let's support this series now, rather than look back on it like Firefly and only come to appreciate it once it's too late.

Jun 19, 2015 | Rating: 4.7/7 | Full Review…

Killjoys has its moments. It's an adventure in space, for pity's sake. It gets points for the premise, and it is indeed fun.

Audience Reviews for Killjoys: Season 1

  • Oct 27, 2020
    Wise cracking butt kicking bounty hunters from outer space. Nothing thought provoking. Only watched one episode.
  • Feb 24, 2020
    speed science fiction with great female lead
  • Jan 02, 2019
    Watchable space opera
  • Nov 24, 2018
    A snarky clever show that doesn't take itself too seriously in a great way!
  • Oct 03, 2018
    We are welcomed to a cluster of 4 habitable planets (or rather 1 planet and 3 habitable moons), which relies on a group of bounty hunters to police the quadrant. A duo quickly becomes a trio as they resque a brother and all sorts of adventures are had. All you gotta do is kick back with a glass and trust LUCY will get you home safely.

    it has great potential and snappy dialogues, too. the characters are fun to watch but the production design could do better.
  • Jan 15, 2018
    Fun. Doesn't get too deep, but easy enough to watch.
  • Oct 13, 2017
    Perfect example of too much character development. This universe is filled with pathetic, unlikeable fools. The action is not worth the slog through Killjoys' oversharing.

    I am so sick of these shows adding gay characters that do not make sense we have a guy who went from being a tough guy with a woman on his arm, to a wimpy guy that is now gay ! Then you have a women taken from the memory of the other same woman but one is gay and one is straight come one they are not twins they are literally the same person. I am sick of these shows adding gay like it is something they have to do not because it is any way close relevant to the story line. Hate to break it to you but 99% of the country is straight and no we don't want gay people in all our shows. You could have had aliens and humans fine but you took the cheap way out with lazy writing and it hurt the show. I am done watching this garbage the plot makes no sense hullen is forever or you are dead but then they can cleanse hullen but not the star she can't be cleansed !??? People die and they morn then other people die and all of the sudden they can come back wow lazy writing bad producing I would give this negative stars but I am forced to settle for a half of star.
