  • Jeff Korbelik

    The Brink is whip-smart, featuring actors who know how to play comedy. This one’s a joy to watch.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    An explosively funny satirical descendant that can hit home without being even slightly preachy about it. Mostly, though, have fun with both the madcap characters and the notion that one of the Pakistani demands in play is a full membership with the Augusta National Golf Club.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Diane Gordon

    The dialogue is smart, biting and sporadically funny as it convincingly argues that its strange fiction is truth and turns the wartime stuff of our nightmares into the blackest of comedy.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Consistently entertaining, if not hysterical, and plotted with care, so that three distinct story lines dovetail nicely.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    The manic Brink can be exhausting and overbroad, but it also has moments that are acutely, if childishly, funny.

    Reason.com Full Review
  • Erik Adams

    There’s smart plotting at work, and keen observational skills when it comes to showing who’s truly in power, but it takes a squishy stance on the issues at hand, a “nuclear warfare bad” perspective that makes for agreeable comedy but ineffectual satire.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    The show may err toward silliness, but the cast is uniformly good, and every so often a wry jab at American parochialism or some funny throwaway line will catch you by happy surprise.

    USA Today Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    Much of it works very well because of the casting and, to some extent, character direction. The pacing is a bit flaccid here and there, but most of the jokes are worth waiting an extra beat for.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    The humor's not nearly as pointed as it is in Veep, but if you like Jack Black being Jack Black, you should like him here, too.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Melissa Maerz

    Black spends too much time hugging with his eyebrows raised, and the writers go for easy jokes. [3 Jul 2015]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    The series keeps generally on the right side of things by virtue of the excellence and exuberance of the performances, which add flesh where needed; by moving fast enough to keep ahead of your second thoughts; and by spreading the ridiculousness around.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Some of the comedy borders on dark slapstick. Some favors absurdity.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    The series finds its comic stride in the fifth episode and becomes kind of fun. But that’s a long wait, and it’s easy to be discouraged by the way it starts.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    It has its moments of comedy that land, but the entire show, which is going for a Dr. Strangelove vibe, feels off. As political satire, it lacks the bite needed to really work.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The Brink is just silliness. It takes a while to get used to that, but this broad humor may win over some viewers.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    “Ballers” and “The Brink,” have their moments, neither provides a lot of laughs.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    It tries to deliver a biting geopolitical satire about unconventional warfare with weapons that are depressingly conventional.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    Many of the erratic and seemingly random acting choices fall on inconsistent written characterizations, many fall on stars too big to be wholly steered and many have to be placed on the "Brink" directors.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    [The Brink] uses Black’s panicky jabber-talk style to set the pace for a frantic show that only occasionally slows down enough to be actually funny.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Todd VanDerWerff

    The Brink's level of satire never really goes beyond "the most obvious jokes you can think of about every possible group of people on the planet," and its political messages essentially boil down to the idea that the end of humanity wouldn't be that cool.

    Vox.com Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    It’s a depressing waste of talent, although having so many talented people involved at least keeps The Brink watchable. It’s the writing that fails them.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The show operates at a tone of constant hysteria, which, as justified as that may be, begins to feel exhausting.

    Variety Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The Brink is a little too stale and disorganized to act as the “Veep” of foreign diplomacy, but it does provoke a chuckle here and there.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen so much acting, writing, and directing talent, and such top-notch production values, expended on behalf of a show that makes such a weak impression.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kristi Turnquist

    Unfortunately, The Brink feels like a would-be daring political comedy that's lacking in insight and light on laughs.

    The Oregonian Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The Brink is far more likely to trigger a hasty finger on your TV remote.

    Time Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The Brink aims to poke fun at world diplomacy by insisting that almost everyone at the highest levels of power is a fool focused on their basest desires. In the right hands it could be as provocative as the Kubrick film it emulates. But as it stands it would barely pass muster as a back-half sketch on SNL.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The Brink has no backbone, which happens to be the one thing that satire requires.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    The Brink is a grim would-be comedy grindhouse full of half-baked one-liners propping up an overbaked plot.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Sonia Saraiya

    It’s screechingly awful.
