Critic Reviews for Terriers: Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (16)

Opting for a scruffier, darker comic tone to fit its Raymond Chandler-esque lead, it made for addictive viewing.

It's lackadaisical, weary, bland and off-center. The latter is the chief problem:

With these two actors on board, the show is not half bad.

Top Critic

Every so often, a show arrives and instantly feels lived-in, like a comfortable old couch with slight depressions in all the right places. FX's Terriers is one of those shows, beautifully torn and frayed from the get-go.

If you spend too much time trying to figure out what FX's new drama Terriers wants to be, you might miss the fact that mainly it's pretty good.

September 8, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Terriers, a show about private detectives, but really a show about charming characters and zippy dialogue in a sunny locale, deserved so much better than the one season and a cloud of dust that it got.
