Critic Reviews for The Wrong Mans: Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12)

A geeky office worker picks up a ringing telephone at the scene of a car crash and sets in motion a crazy-funny mystery.

August 12, 2014 | Full Review…

The series' absurdly complex plot and genre clichés are clearly tongue-in-cheek, but we still find ourselves rooting for the heroes and getting caught up in the suspense. Light and witty, the series is the perfect time filler.

December 13, 2013 | Full Review…

It may not have the sharpness of a Wright effort, but the show is deeply committed to its world-colliding premise, and trots out a host of serious actors.

August 12, 2014 | Full Review…

If the plot had been at all predictable, this melange of styles could have been self-indulgent. But the story kept surprising us.

Average Joes get pulled into violence, accidental espionage.

November 21, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A comedy with a cinematic heart and two talented actors/writers at its core. We couldn't ask for more, aside from maybe a breathtaking train scene (oh wait, it has one of those too).
