Critic Reviews for The Knights of Prosperity Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (12)

Its time slot and midseason status may make it harder to succeed, but creatively, "The Knights of Prosperity" has delivered this season where so many new shows have failed.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The Knights have a happy mutt's lovability.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

[T]he rest of the sitcom... works like a charm.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Knights is funny in spots and also gets by without a laugh track... Still, the preposterous premise already is wearing very thin by Episode 2.

Sep 23, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Knights may not be perfect, but if the writers can figure out how to write for every other actor as well as they write for Richardson, it just might be a worthwhile series yet.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The break-in may never take place, but the characters are appealing, and the writing is spirited enough to carry the sitcom at least for a while.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's a little hackneyed, and one wishes it were a little funnier, but it's certainly fueled by an eager-to-please energy.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

These can be show-stealing roles in small doses played against grounded characters, but the Knights have no one but each other to bounce off. They would be too much of a good thing, if they were good, which they aren't.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

"Knights" doesn't shine as brightly as one might hope in these early episodes, but there are enough hints of great comedy that there's reason to expect further improvement.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The premise isn't new, but casting and writing make the show crackle with cultural insights and homages.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It's something like a blue-collar Ocean's Eleven.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Unlike Robin Hood, their true motivation isn't to help others, but rather to escape the day-to-day grind of their working-class life.
