One of the great charms of TBS' new surprise hit Search Party is in how believable it makes its cast of loveable awful schmucks.

Uneven, intelligent, weird, sometimes funny (more often not) - and almost consistently engaging.

That being said, Season 1 of Search Party has a strong voice that proves worthy of trusting up until its final seconds. It's engaging, thoughtful television, and whether or not it can sustain its unique tone isn't pertinent right now.

Search Party is blessed with sharp writing and a cast that hits all the right comical notes.

Contra Costa Times

This is a series requiring a binge watch ... a show ultimately about getting to that final destination. Though not necessarily for answers to the mystery or to anything else.

Film School Rejects

The final twist is a brilliant comment on our seemingly bottomless urge for a new direction, a curve ball that will startle us out of our hollow complacence.
