Legit: Season 1 (2013)


Season 1

Critics 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.)

The strange likability of the characters, coupled with the serial storytelling, make Legit an easy show to binge-watch.

The show picks up, giving us a raunchy, good-natured FX "edgy" scenario that serves the players well.

As bawdy as the ensuing scenes get, they also are some of the most touching I can recall between a couple of guys who aren't actually in love with each other. (Am I a wimp because I got a little teary-eyed?)

Jan 17, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A gamy but genuinely affecting new series that feels more like an independent movie unfolding in half-hour chapters.

    If you've seen Jim Jefferies specials, you've already watched the first season.

    I stumbled upon this after the star Jim Jeffries pointed out it was available on Netflix during his Netflix stand up special. I gave it a try and had no idea it was such an amazing show. It's original, creative, authentic, and most of all hilarious while also being quite poignant at times. I'm sad to know there are only 2 seasons and would be delighted to find out if Netflix decided to continue the show. It's really amazing!

    Remains my favorite show of all time, SEASON 3--I BEG OF YOU.
  • Jul 23, 2014
    Funny, absurd, and always crazy and is, like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Louie", a rare example of a television show capturing the comedian's essence without a filter.
  • Apr 28, 2014
    I really enjoyed this show, especially the season finale.

    Legit sets itself out amongst other cable comedies in that it combines crude and politically incorrect humor with warm-hearted moments and characters. The show is smartly written and acted by its lead, comedian Jim Jeffries, as well as acted greatly by the rest of its cast.
