All Critics (36) | Top Critics (14)

The show strives so hard to be liked that it comes across as over-the-top.

Unlike NBC's new and deadly serious The Enemy Within, you likely won't find this one a chore or headache to watch.

Whiskey Cavalier knows what it is - which is a compliment, since many shows don't. And what it is is a good-looking action dramedy with good-looking people; it's aiming for a Mr. & Mrs. Smith sort of vibe.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

This is the type of series that you will look back upon in a decade and have completely forgotten about or question how it ended up lasting for nine seasons. Neither is truly indicative of the quality of it which is middling at best.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

If you don't take anything away from Whiskey Cavalier Season 1 Episode 1, you should take away the fact that the series is unapologetic, cheesy, lovable, fun.

May 23, 2019 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

Whiskey Cavalier can occasionally get by on the charms of its cast (Scott Foley, Lauren Cohan, Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams, Josh Hopkins), but the show continues to step all over the characters.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

There is nothing ground-breaking here. The series is pure popcorn, with lots of spy games and spy toys, pantomime villains, preposterous action sequences and nonsensical storylines. But that is part of the appeal.

Mar 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Aside from Foley and Cohan's natural chemistry, everything in Whiskey Cavalier feels too neatly put together.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It all makes for a charming new addition to ABC's lineup and one of the network's most immediately entertaining new shows in recent memory.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Will I keep watching Whiskey Cavalier after this week? 100,000 percent.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The show has strong lead-ins in fellow ABC comedies, but is a comedy disguised as a one-hour drama.

Feb 28, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Whiskey Cavalier is more concerned with giving audiences a good time than a gritty, overly-complicated one.

    WHY IS THIS SHOW OFF THE AIR????? Great cast, great writing... So we can have more "Reality TV" - Are you kidding me ABC??? You would have cancelled Friends after their first season too - right?? Butt heads!!!!!
  • Nov 12, 2019
    I liked it.....the stories had a good mix of drama, action, fun and heart, of course it was a bit cheesy sometimes (the antagonist...welll, too much James Bond villan....) but the characters were likable, they had a good chemistry, especially Ray was hillarious, Susan was great, Jay, Standish, so nice, ok Frankie's problems were sometimes to often repeated, but this can easily be forgiven, watch this show, enjoy the fast paced stories.....it is sad, that the show was cancelled.

    I loved the show, and am sorry to see that it did not get a second season.
  • Sep 30, 2019
    This was a great show and you need to bring it back.
  • Sep 25, 2019
    It was entertaining but don't know why they cancelled it.
  • Sep 24, 2019
    Loved this show. Typical that they would cancel it
  • Sep 01, 2019
    Not bad, frequently on the verge of a being B-Series
  • Aug 19, 2019
    Great chemistry among the cast. Entertaining network styled restrained scripts managed to make the show fun to watch. Naturally, it was cancelled in its infancy by the all knowing penny pinching network gurus. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon...? You listening?
  • Aug 14, 2019
    Great, funny, show. All my favorites get cancelled.
  • Jul 28, 2019
