Legit: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Legit: Season 1 (2013)




Critic Consensus: Legit is proudly rude, crude, and politically incorrect, but thanks to strong writing and sharply-drawn characters, it's frequently hilarious and often oddly charming.

Critic Reviews for Legit: Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (15)

Legit - and I say this with a certain amount of admiration, coupled with trepidation that some new program on the spring schedule will soon prove me wrong - is the most degraded, debauched and degenerate show on TV.

That's what makes FX's new sitcom Legit so surprising: The constant stream of offensiveness actually reflects a coherent comic sensibility. The show is not only funny but surprisingly touching.

FX just might have the standout new comedy series of this season.

Odd, crude and strangely charming, Legit won't be for everyone. But fans of FX's other comedies should definitely give it a try.

I like Legit a lot, because not only does it make me giggle like a 13-year-old but it can be remarkably tender, too.

Extremely raunchy, and often quite funny. ('Course you'll hate yourself for laughing, but still probably will.)
