Critic Consensus: Roadies' condescending tone, boring and underdeveloped characters, and lack of dramatic intrigue lead to a failure to rock.

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (21)

It may not be rock 'n' roll - but we like it.

Roadies exemplifies the best of Crowe's earnest exuberances, as well as the potholes he should now know how to avoid.

The worst of Roadies doesn't negate its sweet spots. It's almost as if the series is an ongoing collection of albums, some far better remembered than others.

Unfortunately, the characters in Roadies, writer-director Cameron Crowe's new Showtime series about a rock band's road crew, come off like an irritating Sorkin ensemble.

Unlikeable characters fill the foreground, while an unfocused music track fills the background.

(Crowe) needs to strengthen his characters, and I hope that comes over the course of the first season, but I'm willing to let the set list play out. I still trust the man who wrote it.

Roadies is far too cynical an attempt at replicating bygone, heartwarming sincerity.

Aug 14, 2017 | Full Review…

This is disappointing show-off schlock from the creative mind of Cameron Crowe, and the hipster ensemble of die-in-a-ditch for the ditties is as contrived as the mandatory group hug ceremony the roadies prayer-circle before each show.

Messy and maudlin and yet so affectionately charactered and detailed that it is Cameron Crowe's first, best destiny -- the work he was born to do.

Aug 12, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Crowe can be corny, but he's never phony, and when the characters here drop into reveries about why they do what they do it's easy to buy them as passionate people who live in service of art.
