Critic Reviews for Mad Dogs Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (17)

The cast is top-notch... acting like a bunch of fun-loving dudes having their male-only Big Chill moment - but then also bringing a palpable undercurrent of tension and competition that gradually rises to the surface.

The perils pile up to an absurd level in this 10-part drama with some late, much needed relief from Fargo's Allison Tolman.

Jan 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Ryan's writing, collaborating with Cris Cole, is typically razor-sharp, but the real draw here is the cast, all of whom find ways to stand out in a show that's very plot-driven.

Jan 19, 2016 | Full Review…

A few moments are undeniably unnerving, but I doubt they'll be enough to attract even fans of the "vacation gone wrong" horror genre.

It's sort of like The Big Chill with murder.

It's a show with a whole lot more depth when you look at it as uneasy commentary on the values that let these guys down. Mad Dogs didn't come here to celebrate American masculinity, but to mourn it.

Aug 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Mad Dogs is a major commitment, one that those who like their comedy in shades other than pitch black may not be willing to make.

Aug 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Shawn Ryan's Mad Dogs looks great and plays great.

Jan 20, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The pilot's ending fails to land with the dramatic intensity it intends as a result of some awkward camera moves, but the mildly enjoyable first installment of Mad Dogs shows the potential to be fun, dramatic and engrossing.

Jan 20, 2015 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Its midlife-crisis themes are tired, uninvolving and depressing.
