Stumptown: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
Stumptown

Critics Consensus

Simple, but strong, Stumptown moves at a brisk pace and packs a serious punch thanks in large part to Cobie Smulders' star making performance.

Critic Reviews for Stumptown Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (11)

A more-than-sturdy foundation for a fresh spin on the network detective series.

Mostly what struck me about Stumptown, however, was how fun it was to watch, from the chase sequences to the music to the chemistry between characters.

Smulders has been underrated for some time, and she's excellent here, finding just the right edge to the character but keeping her likable at the same time.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The supporting cast, which includes Jake Johnson and Michael Ealy, is also delightful. The characters genuinely like one another, and many times that makes for a more pleasurable watch than tense police dramas.

Top Critic

The show carries an obscure vibe to it from its dark-colored aesthetics to its topics of mental health and life's woes, but still maintains enough wry and satirical humor to carry a balance within the show's tone.

Dec 5, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Stumptown is good, period, without the "for a network show" qualification. It's got a strong cast and fun storylines... It's smart and fast and formulaic in the right ways only so far.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

In a show filled with stand out characters, the most surprising one was the music. Stumptown is going to become the Guardians of the Galaxy of the TV world if they keep us this incredible soundtrack.

Sep 26, 2019 | Rating: 4.8/5.0 | Full Review…

Stumptown is a series to be enjoyed. It's pure prime-time entertainment that has a shot at being the next beloved network procedural.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

[Tantoo] Cardinal's work always elevates a project.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Actress Colbie Smulders elevates this well-made procedural private eye drama.

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Fun crime solving drama with a strong, flawed female lead.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I want so much for Stumptown to be the show I know it can be, but after "Dex Education" I'm prepared to be disappointed.

    Stumptown is about Dex Parios (How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders), an ex-soldier with PTSD and a tragic past who decides to become a private detective. I stopped watching this after the eighth episode. I didn't think this was bad so much as there wasn't enough to keep me watching. The pilot episode and and one subplot that lasted a few episodes are pretty good. However, the writers didn't really know what to do with the stand-alone episodes which were often just okay. The biggest trouble is that the show tries to balance network lightheartedness and comedy with more serious elements. They nail it in the first episode, but for the rest of the show the disparate parts never quite gel. (I get the feeling that the original graphic novel this was based on was more mature and they tried to adapt this to be more network-friendly.) I have no complaints with the cast. Smulders and New Girl's Jake Johnson is great as her friend. I can see some people getting more out of this than me, but personally I think there are a lot of shows out there that take priority.

    So mediocre and so boring.

    Best show ever! The writing is excellent! I hope they get a second season!

    I keep trying not to like this show (I don't know why) but I can't! It is really good!
  • Jan 08, 2020
    Great season so far. For a detective show, it actually feels somewhat fresh in its story telling.
  • Jan 03, 2020
    I LOVE this show, I am hoping and crossing my fingers we get a season two and beyond!
  • Dec 26, 2019
    Great show with strong female lead. I like how the main character, Dex is a smart, strong character but with definite flaws and painful past. It's a truthful vulnerability not normally given to female leads. Adding the character Ansel is great too. It shows how autistic people are not just dumb and helpless but can often function well in society if given the opportunity.

    Looking forward to watching. This show reminds me of Stumptown Coffee 😁
