Unsupervised: Season 1 (2012)


Critic Consensus: Unsupervised is a cheap Beavis and Butt-Head knock-off that's sporadically funny at best.

Tv Season Info

The FX network's irreverent animated series "Unsupervised" follows the exploits of 15-year-old buddies Joel Zymanski (voice of David Hornsby) and Gary Garrison (voice of Justin Long), as they hatch one outrageous ploy after another and watch most of the schemes blow up in their faces. Stories include the boys' attempts to blame a fire they started on the homeless people living nearby, their recruitment of a psychic to assist them with their upcoming science fair, their decision to get Joel's newly paroled brother Brian a job as the security officer at their high school, and their attainment of fake IDs that will permit them to give blood.

Critic Reviews for Unsupervised Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

Fans of "Archer" likely won't sit still for the more juvenile antics of "Unsupervised."

Jan 19, 2012 | Full Review…

"Unsupervised" is a cheerier, less nihilistic "Beavis and Butt-head Lite," and not remotely as funny or trenchant.

Top Critic

Unsupervised might induce at least a small handful of smiles per episode. But only if its mood strikes you.

Top Critic

"Unsupervised" refuses to go for the throat. And that makes it unfunny.

Jan 19, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Alas, there's no sophisticated humor in FX's "Unsupervised", which plays like a less witty "Beavis and Butt-head."

Jan 19, 2012 | Full Review…

Unsupervised appears content to amble along, reiterating what we've seen before

Jan 19, 2012 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

By making Gary and Joel such fundamentally decent, if misguided, kids, the creators have set a much higher bar for themselves to clear than if they'd just made them sarcastic troublemakers who looked down on everything.

Jan 19, 2012 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The pathos is soggy, even when it comes to the adults.

Jan 19, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Instead of laughing at their delusions, you end up feeling sorry for the guys. And that's a total buzz kill in the humor department.

Jan 19, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's mainly a "Beavis and Butt-head" echo, which seems extra repetitive.
