Review: Season 1 (2014)



Critic Consensus: The subversive Review lures viewers with a seemingly innocuous hook and gradually reveals a disturbing commitment to its high concept, making for one of the darkest - and uproarious - of comedies.

Critic Reviews for Review Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

With every passing week it becomes clearer what an incredible arc star and creator Andy Daly has planned for the season.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

It's the dad-like squarishness of Daly, who created and executive produces Review, that solidifies the series and makes it so uncommonly entertaining. Forrest has created a hell for himself, one that's being broadcast in weekly installments.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The results are hit-and-miss but often very funny. Daly has a high-speed sensibility that doesn't sacrifice intellect for the sake of a joke.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

What makes Review so good is Andy Daly's cherubic face and earnest portrayal of Forrest, paired with such bleakness.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a strange and somewhat twisted program, but I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being the funniest show to premiere in 2014.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Review feels... hindered by its unusual presentation, but the radically morose "Pancakes, Divorce, Pancakes" suggests a serious ambition for the show, one that might ultimately overcome these flaws.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The mix of over-the-top and realistic is odd, but it's also funny and fresh.

Oct 15, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show becomes a painfully hilarious but melancholy study of the detached appreciation of life getting in the way of life itself.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Forrest gives two of these pointless segments a one-half star rating, and that's being generous.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

There's an underlying social commentary in the fundamental premise, but it's one that never gets even remotely explained.... There's a nagging sense that Review represents a squandered opportunity.
