Tv Season Info
This is Wrecked, a fairly imaginative TBS spoof of that sainted (to some) ABC series [Lost].
Rhys Darby's worth the price of admission alone, but I also just enjoy watching shows about the breakdown of society.
Wrecked looks good. That it's shot and scored (and much of the time acted) as if it were a drama - not exaggeratedly dramatic, with a wink, but played straight - gives the silliness some substance and makes watching a pleasure.
The cast is clearly capable of handling anything that's thrown at them. They make Wrecked worth watching.
All things considered, if a group of TV lovers were stranded on a desert island and could choose only one show to bring with them, pack "Lost" and ditch this pretender.
It's those absurd elements combined with throwaway lines and a commitment to skewing away from the sentimental that help move Wrecked beyond mere parody.
With impossible-to-like characters, annoying overacting, and a satirical tone that's about as accomplished as a fiery airplane wreckage, TBS's new sitcom Wrecked is simply never the one thing it needed to be: consistently funny.
The big problem with Wrecked is that the pilot episode is just not that funny. A second episode was slightly funnier but not entertaining enough to warrant watching a third half-hour.
Because much of the humor stems from the characters' stereotypically opposing personalities, it doesn't take long to predict how scenes will play out, and then the whole production feels trite instead of edgy.
Your sarcastic inner monologue might be thinking, "Oh, a Lost parody; that's timely," but it works, nevermind that Lost debuted 12 years ago.
Audience Reviews for Wrecked: Season 1
Jun 17, 2019I like the humor. It's something that will make you laugh pretty hard but the characters will probably annoy you. The story lets you guess whats coming next but that's ok as long as you keep in mind it's a comedy written to be dumb humor.
