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.

September 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.

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.
