Critic Reviews for Year of the Rabbit Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

The best material subverts the crime and costume-drama genres and all of their clichés, like "Ripper Street" gone off its rocker. The pace is fast, and the language is gleefully profane.

Mar 20, 2020 | Full Review…

The show's best energy and ability to subvert expectations of a show set in this time and place is evident right from the pilot.

Berry's lived-in turn helps distract from some of the broader questions one considers post-series: Is Rabbit, for example, actually good at his job? After six episodes, that question remains curiously unclear.

Feb 19, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The most surprising thing about the whole mad shebang was that it worked. It was really, really funny.

Jun 17, 2019 | Full Review…

These are all minor pleasures, perhaps, but they add up to a pleasantly silly half-hour.

Jun 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's Ripper Street with knob gags in, and Keeley Hawes as an evil crime boss to come. What, unless of course it isn't your sort of thing, is not to like?

Jun 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It may simply be a question of Year of the Rabbit finding its feet, for relationships between the characters to develop beyond the mere exchange of insults, and for the plot, which extends across the series, to take hold.

Year Of The Rabbit has Berry hitting the right comedic notes, helped by a funny supporting cast and a setting that's always ripe for comedy.

Feb 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Rabbit lives and dies by its jokes, which fly fast and furious, including a running gag of street urchins hawking unsavory fare.

Feb 19, 2020 | Full Review…

The gags, it seems in hindsight, were all about disability, prostitutes and mud, and all done with a certain frenetic foul-mouthiness substituting for actual humour.

Jun 17, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a strange kind of comedy - but it is also brilliant.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The show wants to be Jack The Ripper vs The Sweeney, but it's more like a 19th-century version of Channel 4's shouty Manchester cop show, No Offence.
