Critic Reviews for Schitt's Creek Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (14)

The title of this new comedy series is an obvious joke and not at all a subtle one. The show itself, though, is lot more textured and worth seeking out.

They could use some sharper instruments, though, to deliver beyond a daring title that calls for more than just passing gas.

Top Critic

It's a no-frills production with modest, but pleasant rewards.

Feb 10, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

After a few episodes, viewers could stop expecting Schitt's Creek to have a point or a direction and thus could get a few chuckles out of it, but most viewers won't get past the first episode. It's too hard to watch a show float around without a paddle.

Top Critic

The amazingly deranged diction of Catherine O'Hara, as the perpetually verklempt Moira, would make Billy Wilder weep.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite its sophomoric title, the new sitcom is not just a welcome addition to prime time: it is one of the best CBC comedies in years.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

After opening with a salvo of lighthearted Green Acres-esque comedy, the back half of Schitt's Creek snuck in something a little dark and more damaged... propelling it far above any initial expectations anyone could've had about the show.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It's always great to see longtime collaborators Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara partner up with one another, and this series is a perfect vehicle for both of them.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Though the show is reminiscent of the unscripted, mockumentary movies like Best in Show, everything is actually brilliantly scripted.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm not sure Schitt's Creek is the show that will make Pop pop in the consciousness of many channel-surfing viewers, but the show exerts its own original kind of charm: an air of anxious amusement.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It hits a sweet spot of ensemble humor that happens to offer a satisfying answer to post-presidential election rhetorical grousing about what would happen if middle and bicoastal Americans really could get along.

Aug 24, 2017 | Full Review…

It didn't make me laugh out loud. But it showed a glimmer of humour somewhere in this. If they can develop that and give some genuine personality to the horribly caricatured, spoilt rich characters - maybe, just maybe this will get better.

    How did I not know about this little gem? Absolutely riveting, hilarious, perfectly and beautifully acted show. I couldn't take my eyes off Dan Levy, his facial expressions are everything. I binge watched Season One and Two one night, who needs sleep anyway!
  • Jun 08, 2020
    This show starts a bit slow, but the characters are gradually becoming more and more likable and the humor becomes more and more funny. Definitively an interesting series with a hopeful note.
  • May 19, 2020
    Schitt's Creek is the most hilarious show I have ever seen and my favorite new show of 2015, my favorite comedy show of all time, and my 2nd favorite show of all time. The writing is phenomenal, it is hilarious. The characters are so we'll written, they are outstanding. Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy, Emily Hampshire, Eugene Levy, Chris Elliott, Annie Murphy, and Jennifer Robertson give remarkable performances, they are hilarious and have outstanding chemistry, they just play off of each other perfectly. The costumes are spectacular especially the ones wore by Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy, Annie Murphy, Eugene Levy, and Jennifer Robertson. The makuep and hairstyling was stupendous especially on Catherine O'Hara, Chris Elliott, Jennifer Robertson, Tim Rozon, Emily Hampshire, Sarah Levy, Dan Levy, Annie Murphy, and Eugene Levy. The sets and scenery are fantastic, I love the small town/rural forest setting. The music is excellent, I love it. This is an A+ first season.
