Critic Consensus: Moonbeam City wildly overestimates the effectiveness of its attempts at over-the-top humor, leaving viewers with little more than a derivative disappointment.

Critic Reviews for Moonbeam City Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (10)

The comedy in Moonbeam City is scattershot, and it misses more than it hits. The writers should concentrate their fire on one target.

The new Comedy Central cartoon-starring the voice of Rob Lowe-is so willfully dumb that it might make you wonder if it's meta-dumb. Don't be fooled.

Does TV need another "Archer"? Not if it's "Moonbeam City," a poor replica featuring the smug voice of Rob Lowe... Despite the high-powered cast which includes Elizabeth Banks and Will Forte, the whole operation feels second-rate.

Sex, violence, retro style in animated 80s cop comedy.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The series certainly has the look to stand out among the animated sitcom crowd, as well as the lineup of celebrity voice actors. But little about the writing, the characters or the humor feels very original.

Based, apparently, on the concept that anything from the '80s is inherently hilarious.

Dazzle Novak is the ultimate Eighties supercop in this fantastic animated romp, set in a neon-and-pastel Hair Decade where everything looks like a Duran Duran album cover. It's Miami Vice times Archer with a side of Scarface.

I rather liked it, though for its form possibly more than for its content. (Note: Subsequent episodes improve on the pilot.)

Sep 17, 2015 | Full Review…

What holds promise for future episodes is the mix of strange throwaway jokes and striking visual style that makes its dialogue-heavy jokes go down easier.

Sep 17, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This all has the makings of a great satire of the '80s, something vibrant and witty and sharp. But what Moonbeam City offers instead is stuff we've seen before. It's either disappointingly generic or way over-the-top and ridiculous.

Audience Reviews for Moonbeam City: Season 1

While I enjoyed the animation style, homage to the 80s cop shows and some of the characters. Moonbeam City's raunchy humour didn't enlighten me at all.
