Weird City: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: A delightfully off-kilter combination of satire and science fiction, Weird City lives up to its name and then some -- even when it retreads familiar genre ground.

Critic Reviews for Weird City Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (5)

Very funny, but it puts story and characters above commentary all the way through.

From the show's kooky wardrobe to its strange, fantastical take on dystopian science fiction, Weird City is basically what would happen if Black Mirror had a baby with Back to the Future Part II.

The most bizarre choice here, though, was to start the series with a story that, particularly given later twists, feels very reminiscent of Black Mirror episode Hang the DJ, a comparison it inevitably can't live up to.

It's a perfect device for injecting class conflict into what's basically a satirical science fiction fantasy. Of course, like all anthologies, some episodes are better than others.

In an era where satire can feel dull, Weird City feels like a breath of air. It's a little on the nose. But it's also fully aware that it's on the nose between the Blade Runner references and the meta-textual references.

I wish this show wasn't behind a paywall, because I feel like so many people would love to watch this show.

If Black Mirror is a dark warning sign not to forget our humanity, Weird City is a bright, flashing neon light that pokes fun at us while also reminding us we're probably doomed.

I don't begrudge Charlie Sanders's YouTube Premium series Weird City for taking a big swing, even if the series mostly misses.

Has the same targets as the acclaimed Netflix show - our obsession with technology and how it invades our lives and often corrupts our intentions. But it plays these anxieties for laughs.

Weird City's writing is sharp and self-aware enough to at least give it a shot.
