Critic Reviews for Schitt's Creek Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (13)

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.

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.

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.

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…

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…

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.

    Perhaps the least funny show I've ever seen. Where's the wit? There is none! I didn't laugh one time. Writers: watch Modern Family over and over.
  • Aug 18, 2019
    Each character is perfectly written and hysterically acted. Binging all the seasons . . . So funny.
  • Jun 25, 2019
    One of my all time favorite shows!!

    Incredible. Acting. Writing. Editing. Nuance.
  • Apr 04, 2019
    Schitt's Creek hilariously brings together an ensemble of actors that know how to elevate one another into excellence. Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Dan Levy, and Annie Murphy lift the show to new heights.

    Between the brilliant ensemble cast and the cheeky, upper-class humor, "Schitt's Creek" is a binge-worthy comedy that shows a lot of potential.

    best season. brought me in hooked like a fish at sea
  • Mar 02, 2019
    This is the funniest show ever! First few episodes are not very smooth but the show gets better and better with each episode and each season

    It took me three years before - out of total boredom one night - when I decided to waste my time on a series that associated itself with excrement. Am I glad that I did, and I feel bad that I missed out on this genuinely original series about FAMILY ever since. This is a story about very bad people - they are selfish, narcissistic, spoiled and total bores. When they lose everything (which ends up being the best thing that ever happens to them) they slowly come to find themselves as members of a FAMILY. They become a family and more than this, they come to love each other. This is what family is all about. I'm 58 years old and have seen it all, but this series is as close to redemption as storytelling can get. I love the characters. They are at times, incredibly hilarious, such that I've cried and almost passed out from sheer laughter. Series One is OK, but the next two series are even better - although Series 1, episode #10 with the Hawaiian party cannot be surpassed. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
