Season 1
Punky Brewster

Critics Consensus

It's delightful to see Soleil Moon Frye again, but with dated plotting and a lack of focus, Punky Brewster can't quite fill her multicolored Cons.

Audience Reviews for Punky Brewster: Season 1

    I binged all the episodes in 2 sittings. Surprisingly I like it better than the original, and I grew up watching Punky. It still has the heart, but I think this one is funnier. I like the new kid a lot. And I like punky's 3 kids a lot too. I looove that they normalize the youngest son being into nail polish and fashion. It's refreshing. Kudos to the studio for showing that. I'm into it

    "Trying way too hard to be funny and serious."
  • Mar 20, 2021
    I really wanted to love this. I tried hard to. But, It's awful. Everything about it is awful. I loved the original show, but this is just terrible. It's missing the soul and character of the original. The chemistry with the original cast was palpable and the writing was much better. You really felt a connection between Henry and Punky. I don't feel that between Punky and Izzy here, at all. Everything in this is hurried and forced and, I don't know if Soleil is just rusty with her acting, but she severely overacts every single line to the point at which I don't even recognize the Punky character. This is not at all how I would imagine Punky acting even as a 40-something and the few times she does something that sort of resembles the Punky we all know, it's hammy and forced. Also, what's with the schizophrenic pretending like Henry is in the room by talking to his photo? Why not just have some moments with his photo in the shot reminiscing about him? Yet another reboot that has disgraced the original... Up next is the Mighty Ducks...let's see how bad that one is...

    Not one for wholesome shows (Like Full House🤢) but this one has charm to it. Sat down while kids were watching it and forgot it was reboot.
  • Mar 13, 2021
    As an eighties girl, Punky Brewster was the It Girl! The original show was a good example of wholesome, family television. Something we lack now because of the creation of reality TV. I'm very glad she's back as a grown up, and get a chance at a rebirth of what family television was all about! PUNKY POWER!!!

    Love it! The quirkiness is the nostalgia. If you loved the original, you'll love the updated version. Don't listen to the "official" critics, we all know they don't really know.
  • Mar 06, 2021
    It is great seeing what a great woman and mother she has become. She still has her Punky Power.
  • Feb 27, 2021
    I haven't seen the original series, so this to me is as new as it gets. I absolutely love it. It reminds me of what good old fashion family sitcom is like. We simply don't get sitcoms like this these days. Izzy is so adorable, and everybody has their own unique character and stories to play out... Honestly, what's there not to like? It's a little short though, just 10 episodes.
  • Feb 26, 2021
    I didn't see the original series so I don't know how it stacks up in terms of reboot but I think it did pretty good. It's certainly not without its flaws like an over usage of laughtrack and an unoriginal take on a what a sitcom family would be like. However it does have a few good moments when touching on serious subject like child abandonment and questioning your sexuality, it really did make me feel something. Their approach to these subjects brought an ease that I think fits perfectly with our idea of what society should be like in 2021. It provided some comedic situations that may be outdated but still can get a laugh or two out of you.

    I liked it. It reminded me of the good old days. When shows had good content.
