Critic Reviews for The Awesomes: Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

It's cheeky parody/homage, exhibiting affection for comic books and other pulpy amusements, while maintaining such a zippy pace, there's no time to consider whether it hangs together. Or whether that matters.

If comedy writers would step back and ask themselves if they have anything original to say before they commit to a project, that would really be awesome.

As one would expect from a Seth Meyers cartoon, The Awesomes can be knowing and clever, with a positive attitude that skews a bit arch.

Created by comic pros Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, The Awesomes is a superhero cartoon you'll want to keep to yourself rather than sharing with your kids.

The series is clearly a labor of love for the creators. Still, the show has its wonderfully silly moments.
