    [By the third episode] Review revealed itself to be something much more complicated, dark, and brilliant, in which the weight of all these viewer requests begins to take a horrific toll on Forrest's life.

    Fitting for a star whose improvised podcast appearances frequently turn down dark alleyways, Review really gets going when it digs deep into horrible behavior.

    Review is more of an experience than a statement; if you ask yourself, "What's the point?" you'll probably never get an answer, and you'll miss out on the agonizing pleasure of this most unusual series, which imports a style of TV comedy that was perfected in the United Kingdom and its far-flung colonies, and somehow Americanizes it without snuffing its daft spark.

    On this sporadically hilarious show, Andy Daly carries over the uptight persona he used to great effect on Eastbound & Down to the role of TV presenter Forrest MacNeil, who every week reviews and grades different experiences. [21 Mar 2014, p.58]

    The recurring gag is the absurdity of nerdy Forrest reviewing often illegal/immoral activities, and it’s a pretty good joke in the early episodes. It remains to be seen if that joke holds up or grows tiresome over time.

    It takes a few episodes to really click but the third episode screened, "Pancakes, Divorce, Pancakes" has a twisted brilliance even in its very premise. Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The series isn’t bad, but it would have been so much more interesting if instead of just watching Forrest run, we had a better grasp of what makes him tick.

  • Matt Roush

    Forrest gives two of these pointless segments a one-half star rating, and that's being generous.
