Loudermilk: Season 1 (2017)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Loudermilk's timely premise and sharp writing lay a solid foundation for a strong central performance from Ron Livingston, perfectly cast in this endearing dark comedy about a rock critic turned recovering alcoholic.

Critic Reviews for Loudermilk Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

The closer this show gets to the truth, the more honest it feels. It may not always get there, but like the character that gives it its title, it's at least trying.

his surprisingly appealing dramedy from Peter Farrelly... symbolically picks up where Gen-X totems like "Singles" and "Reality Bites" left off decades ago, packed with cynical but hilarious "Louie"-like moments of honesty.

Loudermilk stands out for several reasons, first among them, the show's beautifully realized scripts, followed closely behind by fascinating performances.

Though it feels contrived at times, or willfully outrageous - this is Peter Farrelly of the Farrelly Brothers, remember - it can also be authentically charming

Credit Mort and Farrelly with slowly building out an eclectic little comedy that really grows on you.

This is one of the ongoing TV season's better new comedies.

The series ... has an appealing likeability to it. Mostly, that is thanks to Livingston who always keeps the character real.

At a time when substance abuse of all sorts is roiling the nation, Loudermik, forgive the pun, is a sobering comedy, in every sense.

Oct 16, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's a perfect lead role for Ron Livingston.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It's supposed to be funny, but it's not. Which is a problem for a comedy.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

For all its genuine laughs, Loudermilk knows exactly when to slap you with the hard stuff.

Jan 14, 2019 | Full Review…

As the series progresses, Loudermilk's sobriety and his pessimistic attitude toward life are tested, making the character more three-dimensional. He and the show named after him start off interesting and get better as they proceed.

    Really funny! I liked season 2 even better.

    Love this show. Every episode of it, along with Abby's and Brooklyn 99, are on the DVR and rewatched all the time. I love the comedy, the scenery, and the music.

    I really like this show. Ron Livingston is a wonderful actor who actually tempers the mediocre writing. The script often misses opportunities for depth and development of some of their potentially more complex characters and tries to come across as inclusive but instead misses the mark with dialogue that can get really stereotypical and lacks real understanding of the reactions of their characters that are not drunk men. There are definitely some funny moments but it's Livingston's presence that keeps some of the predictable jokes from being too cringey. The supporting cast of characters is wonderful but often seem to meld into one sort of looney amalgam. It's a good show held together by a fantastic actor and I hope the writing gets better the next season and features more than 1 reoccurring woman character that can actually act and has actual chemistry with the other characters. (Love Anja Savcic btw...thank god she's there.)

    Great show. Andy Pratt over the closing credits? Loses half a star for the kiss in ep. 10. Keep Loudermilk nasty!!

    Great show, great writing, great acting! Plus now I want to see The Time Traveling Lumberjacks of the Confederacy in concert!
