Critic Reviews for Search Party: Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (16)

It's a quirky millennial satire that draws on the best aspects of Girls - the Brooklyn setting, painfully true-to-life characters, and bitingly clever humour - and throws them together with a tense missing-person mystery to excellent effect.
