Critic Reviews for The Midnight Gospel Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (6)

We often say that a show is 'like nothing else on television' and it's usually an act of critical hyperbole. Trust me. It's true here.

The Midnight Gospel" is overloaded with so many ideas it often threatens to devolve into one of those ephemeral late-night Adult Swim gambits... but Ward (who directs every episode) always comes back to the plot.

Top Critic

A profound and reflective show disguised as authentic comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 10, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Chaotic adult animation has nudity, violence, profanity.

Jun 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Whether you're a fan of podcasts or adult animation, The Midnight Gospel offers a mind-bending experience to viewers that has not really been seen before.

May 22, 2020 | Full Review…

If you like the kind of topics podcasts cover, you'll like this. If you like cartoons, you'll like this. The creators are taking the gamble that you really like both.

Apr 29, 2020 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

The interviews are interspersed with just enough dialogue to intertwine them with the action, and the result is bizarrely immersive, with the animation serving to prop up the conversation just as often as it provides a non-sequitur palate cleanser.

Apr 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The Midnight Gospel stuns, and a deeper foray into Clancy's adventures in the Chromatic Ribbon is well-deserved.

Apr 22, 2020 | Full Review…

It's not everyone's cup of tea, but The Midnight Gospel is fascinatingly strange, and if you listen to what is actually talked about, you may come away with some insight into the human condition.

Apr 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Ultimately, this experiment with narrative and visual forms works, making The Midnight Gospel the rare piece of legitimately daring television available right now.

Apr 20, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Duncan Trussell and Pendleton Ward's The Midnight Gospel is unlike anything else on television.

Apr 20, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

While the combination of creative talent behind the scenes is a winner, this new series is likely only going to appeal to the Adult Swim crowd. Your mile(high)age may vary.

    It helped a lot more that I could ever had imagined. This show touched on a lot of themes that I already know and love. but it caught me off guard. It made me cry and realize a lot of things that I won't wanna get into so I don't spoil it. Nevertheless, I wish I could rate it higher.

    This show can and will change your life. Excellent concept, excellently delivered. Made for the people, by our people.
  • Jul 06, 2020
    Existential animation at its best. A very different kind of Rick and Morty. This is what animation is for.
  • Jul 03, 2020
    The artwork is wonderful and highly creative... yet the dialog is long winded and get's boring very fast.
  • Jun 25, 2020
    The show is full of amazing visuals, but the show is basically a 8 episode DMT commercial with so many uses of "um" you will lose your mind
  • Jun 20, 2020
    It's basically a shitty, boring podcast played alongside a more interesting cartoon that is barely acknowledged by the characters. I kept waiting for something, ANYTHING to happen, and it never did.

    This show makes me feel happy about the direction the world is heading.
  • Jun 17, 2020
    La mejor serie que he visto este año., los temas que toca son conversaciones profundas sobre la vida y la existencia misma acompañada de animaciones que parecen no tener relacion con lo que se está dialogando pero se vuelven una especie de meta texto de algo más profundo y mayor.
  • Jun 16, 2020
    Incredible show that incorporates really interesting conversation while still keeping its essence as a cartoon
  • Jun 13, 2020
    I am pretty critical of tv in general but this just blows me away. It's intense but so worth it, so much wisdom stuffed in each episode.
