Medical Police: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Medical Police

Critics Consensus

Cop-doctors finally get their due in Medical Police, a show that works almost as well as a good old fashioned action-adventure as it does a delightfully absurd satire about doctor-cops.

Critic Reviews for Medical Police Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

[Medical Police] satisfies as a pleasant diversion but lacks the jokes-per-minute to stand up with the best of the Wain Universe projects.

Jan 22, 2020 | Full Review…

What's great is that "Medical Police" functionally works as the kind of setpiece-centric drama you'd expect from that two-word title.

Top Critic

Money and cameos and nice locales don't make parodies work.

Top Critic

The narrative structure and camera placement, the performances and the pacing, are all spot on, the action scenes - which do pause for comedy - impressively executed.

Jan 21, 2020 | Full Review…

While there are plenty of jokes that fail to land, the pace is fast enough that uncompelling bits don't have time to stink up the joint, and the moments that do work play well.

Jan 21, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Hilarious spin-off satire has lots of cursing, violence.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

By investing in not just the narrative conventions but the stylistic ones, Police takes great pains to mine comedy out of the verisimilitude of a goofy show about spy doctors having all the production value of 24.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Fans of Childrens Hospital will almost certainly appreciate the humor of Medical Police, although it's certainly not required viewing for those uninitiated with the source material.

Jan 21, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Medical Police continues the twisted take on TV medical tropes that Childrens Hospital started, while somehow expanding its world and raising the comedic stakes.

Jan 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Every single person is having a blast and the vibe is infectious.

Jan 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Still, it's consistently funny, a sign that these characters and this setting have plenty of potential left in them, and when the finale sets up the possibility of another season, it's still a welcome prospect.

Jan 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Medical Police is absolutely mandatory viewing and a worthwhile continuation of the comedic pandemonium that Rob Corddry, David Wain, and Jonathan Stern created with Childrens Hospital.

Jan 10, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Medical Police: Season 1

  • May 17, 2020
    Amazing that this was wirten before the COVI-19 crisis!! I thought nothing could be as good as "Scrubs", but this one is very close!!! It has the best combination of humor and tongue -in-cheek sarcasm, especially when they talk about the locations and where they are, I was laughing in the floor, laughing
  • May 04, 2020
    I really wasn't really expecting much but came away pleasantly surprised. A comedy show that's actually funny isn't something you see a lot of these days, but this one definitely fits the bill.
  • Apr 28, 2020
    Considering the cast and creators I was ready to get blown away. The show is entertaining but that's it, you won't regret it, you won't be craving more.
  • Feb 11, 2020
    So freaking awful! Waste of time. Not funny. Irrelevant.
  • Feb 02, 2020
    Love this show! Great absurdist comedy. Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel are hilarious. Fun guest stars. Fans of Children's Hospital/The State/etc. will obviously love it. You'll also enjoy it if you're a fan of cops... or doctors... or Doctor-Cops... or... you get the idea...

    Simply pure fun...great escape from the current stressful times.
  • Jan 30, 2020
    So great! Takes Childrens Hospital to the next level.

    What if 99 was also a moron? Here's your answer... Equality reached at last. And it makes doctors goofy funny for a change. So intentionally bad it's good.
  • Jan 30, 2020
    This show is hilarious. So awesome.
  • Jan 29, 2020
    My favorite comedy show of this decade so far!
