Critic Consensus: Red Oaks offers an affectionate nod to 1980s sex comedies that -- largely thanks to a talented ensemble cast -- finds fresh humor in its familiar premise.

News & Interviews for Red Oaks: Season 1
There are increasingly diminishing returns when it comes to watching a 20-year-old navigate between the push of his own desires and the pull of others' expectations, and David Myers... is too passive and inert to root for.
It's not merely an experiment in nostalgia. The characterization and crisp writing have a biting comic edge, keeping the story from sinking into sentimental mush.
This is a likable ensemble, filled with talented young future stars (Roberts and Turshen especially) and great veterans who don't get enough work, like Reiser and Kind.
The series from David Gordon Green of Eastbound & Down is mildly entertaining, no more and no less.
Series creators Jacobs and Gangemi infuse a delightfully surprising air to each episode, throwing in '80s hallmarks like outrageous side characters, apt musical numbers, sex, drugs and even a body-swap episode.
