The Awesomes: Season 1 (2013)



Critic Consensus: The Awesomes have a ragtag positivity and provide some super heroic wit, but this colorful spoof's gags and satire can feel just as slapdash as its low-budget animation.

Critic Reviews for The Awesomes Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (9)

Even when dealing with a spy agency or a collection of otherworldly abilities, petty disagreements, tiny slip-ups and wordplay seem to always win out and generate the heartiest laughs.

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.

The Awesomes might not be truly awesome yet, and it very well could turn into a waste of time. But, in the argot of magic, it could also reveal itself to be an underestimated misdirection as The Awesomes' story unravels and takes shape.

A caper about inadequate superheroes, it has some good jokes, but this overly familiar spoof lacks the strength to push the envelope.

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.

Aug 1, 2013 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

"The Awesomes" is charming, but your enjoyment of it may depend on how much you may already feel over-saturated with animation.
