Critic Reviews for The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

Production values are high, with Jack Green's lighting, Randy Edelman's music and Rodger Maus' production design all strong pluses.

Top Critic

Packed with train wrecks, stagecoach chases, runaway rockets, and more puns than guns, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. is a nervy attempt to do something different with the TV Western.

Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's never quite as clever as it wants to be... But those in the mood for some low-key sweetness, an always game hero, and just a hint of strange, need look no further.

Top Critic

"The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." is gratifying nonsense, a low-flaming but often-witty hybrid of "Blazing Saddles," Indiana Jones and Bruce Lee that genially plugs the Western genre right through the heart.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

In truth, there are some quirks here that even the most ardent Campbell enthusiast will find hard to look past... But there's also a quality sense of humor and fun in the titular, oddly named bounty hunter's shenanigans...

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The show isn't as clever as it thinks it is, but Campbell is an engaging performer who almost makes it work.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.: The Complete Series is good for a good, if not particularly deep, romp.

Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Ah, a western with a sci-fi theme, a square jawed protagonist, witty dialogue, the timeslot from hell on Friday nights on Fox, canceled before its time... "Firefly," I'd like you to meet your goofy uncle: "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr."

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." was way ahead of its time. A western sci-fi mashup, Campbell was the ideal square-jawed hero, and its a shame Fox only gave it the one season.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

What distinguished Brisco was its tone, which wasn't so much campy as quirky. It had a sly, wink-nudge sensibility where it played straight with the settings, but let the characters be in on the fact that it was all in good fun.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Campbell absolutely shines as the Indiana Jones-like protagonist, and while his performance as the smart-ass everyman isn't nearly as appealing as that of Ash in the "Evil Dead" trilogy, it's still the best thing about the show.
