Perfect Harmony's precarious premise doesn't always hit the right notes, but a charming cast and and a few clever jokes inspire hope that with a little more practice it could really sing.

Critic Reviews for Perfect Harmony Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

Camp, a South Carolina native, shines the brightest in the pilot, providing a good foil to Whitford's abrasiveness, but there isn't as much cohesion in the broader group.

Top Critic

Acquits itself pretty well by the end of its first episode -- especially because it somehow speeds through enough plot to fuel an entire season of Glee.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

What probably would have been a 100-minute feature film becomes a confusingly gutted 21-minute pilot in which every plot machination is unmotivated, every character shift illogical and every attempted emotional moment unearned.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The pilot coasts along on the performers' likability, but they could use some new notes.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The cast is appealing, and the premise is OK - Bradley Whitford plays a former academic who winds up taking over a church choir in a rural small town - but "Perfect Harmony" hasn't quite found its rhythm yet.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

As a whole, the show still struggles to induce genuine belly laughs or snickers but it is funny in its subtleties, which is an art within itself.

Sep 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The pilot is fun, but I don't know how long it can sustain its premise. Whatever happens, I hope that Bradley Whitford's character remains a grumpy asshole for the duration of the series.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

This polished new Pitch Perfect-like sitcom with Bradley Whitford...is right on key.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

There are lots of jokes about the sexual and intellectual traits of white trash, apparently the only remaining socio-economic minority without PC protection.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

There was more than enough in the Perfect Harmony pilot to recommend it.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The writing, though broad, is generally clever, with just the right amount of sass and schmaltz. Whitford is grand, and as his most ardent champion, Pitch Perfect's Anna Camp is, well, pitch perfect.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's formula isn't particularly original, but the writing is sharp, and delivers consistently strong, edgy punchlines and some absurdly comical moments. Yet, it also manages to weave in a few sensitive bits, which makes it more appealing.

Audience Reviews for Perfect Harmony: Season 1

    A family tv show!!! Nice y funny...
  • Mar 24, 2020
    It has some great moments, and it's nice to see a tv show take place in a small town setting. It feels apparent though that they writers don't think all that highly of Kentucky, Kentuckians, or Christianity. There is a great disconnect because of this lack of love.
  • Jan 24, 2020
    I truly love this show. It brings happiness in a complicated time. It has great heart and great meaning in each episode. It is a show that the whole family can watch and enjoy. The Season Finale was great! Give this show a try when it comes back for Season 2. It will definitely brighten you day.

    This should have been a movie. There's not enough here to form an entire tv show around.
