All Critics (54) | Top Critics (22)

It sounds perky, but the reality is amazingly gormless. The comedy is non-existent, and the cast spend their time gurning madly in order to cover for it.

Comedy, while subjective, still necessitates connection, and Santa Clarita Diet severs the tether too many times. Such superficiality may be good for a quick jolt, but it won't satisfy you when the meal's over.

If you can get with the gore, there's frequently a sweet, oddball marital comedy fighting to get out.

Humor is still its principal selling point. And once one gets past the gruesome goings-on in Episode One, it's full tilt ahead in a crazily appetizing tale that's easily swallowed whole.
