Critic Reviews for People of Earth Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (17)

People of Earth earns kudos for going for the stars, but it also suffers from a failure to launch.

In these uncertain, divisive times, People of Earth could be the ultimate bonding experience.

It's gently funny, but also endearing.

Nov 1, 2016 | Full Review…

Great comedies have a rhythm that make them more than the sum of their parts. While there may be enough quality parts here to warrant a look, in today's crowded TV marketplace, those pieces don't come together enough to make the show stand out.

Initially silly, then sublime comedy explores meaning and connection. Even aliens are only human.

Top Critic

What transpires isn't a 'ha ha funny' comedy, but rather a humorous and interesting look at the many ways people try to hide from their true selves when some aspects of real life are just too messy or painful to fully embrace.

Despite its sarcasm, the show has some heart to it.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

People of Earth is worth watching. It's funny and weird and the acting is great. And I want to see it get more space to do all the things it's trying to accomplish.

Mar 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Quirky alien abduction comedy is funny, sometimes silly.

Nov 1, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The whole thing is from Conan O'Brien and Greg Daniels (The Office), so the jokes are dry and funny.

    People of Earth is one of my favorite TV shows! Very clever writing with high quality, funny actors - from a fun to watch and diverse cast. I love the weird, quirky, unique story line and of course, the aliens!

    Can’t believe they have cancelled this show. It is the best ever!!! Hope TBS reconsiders or another network picks them up. It makes no sense.

    Something fresh and new feeling at least for once. Honestly cant wait to see where this is gonna go.. If gets canceled like Constantine and a lot of other good shows for this reality crap I'm going down to Hollywood and kicking some

    I whole heartedly agree with the Critics Consensus. It is very enjoyable and engrossing. Can't wait for season 2!

    This is a very funny show about an out of this world premis that's becoming more and more real as each Internet ufo filled year passes. Wyatt handles it all brilliantly with just enough real life heart to make the implausible alien interaction quite beliveable. Making the comedy even finder. Skeptics and urologists can unite with a laugh on this one.
