Critic Reviews for Making History: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (17)

Fox's Making History is 50% cool show, 50% missed opportunity. It's not comedy for the ages, but it tries hard.

Every once in a while broadcast television manages to cough up a sly fluffball of a sitcom, something that looks thoroughly silly but also manages to bring some sting when it wants. "Making History" is just such a sly fluffball.

Making History doesn't get everything right. But the series' principal trio commit themselves fully, with Meester particularly fresh and appealing as a transplanted colonial having the time of her life as a newly liberated woman.

Top Critic

A joyful, self-aware comedy that falls squarely under the "don't worry if it makes sense" approach to time travel stories.

Crazy comedy for our crazy-making times.

Making History may get a D in real history but is passably funny in a hit-or-miss cartoonish way.
