Critic Reviews for StartUp: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

There are also far too many shows like StartUp... that echo elements of past TV hits, from the heat-wave setting of Burn Notice to the moral opacity of The Shield, without... offering any sense of creative independence or innovation.

Freeman, though, is something to see (especially for fans), and there are just enough memorable moments to keep "StartUp" out of the red.

September 6, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Its first few episodes set up a complicated plot that, if it can break free from convention and its clunky dialogue, might be worth investing in.

[It] is kind of a mess.

In the show's first episode, every major character is shown in a gratuitous sex scene, as though the idea was, well, if the viewers don't buy this GenCoin thing, maybe they'll stick around for the sex. We'll see how that pays off for StartUp.

If it can keep the characters front and center and not fall back on the GenCoin gimmick too much, it stands a chance of being a decent crime series.
