    Frankly, the only moderately ambitious thing about the show is the set design--immersed as it is in brownish hues and grunge--and even that feels borrowed from any number of sources blessed with more expansive budgets or simply a heftier dose of wit.

  • Whitney Matheson

    Killjoys boasts slick outfits and action sequences, but the rest is pretty fuzzy. Characters are hard to define beyond their physical attributes, making them difficult to root for (or against).

  • Rob Owen

    Killjoys tries to build a mythology, but both the low-rent look--a red filter for this scene! a green filter for this scene!--and the emphasis on fights over character development dooms the show to medocrity.

  • Jeff Korbelik

    The action is good, with all three actors receiving and dishing out their fair share of abuse, but the story is, literally, difficult to follow.

    Hannah-John Kamen's strong performance and plenty of family drama do result in some solid personal lore, but the show lacks a sense of place. [19 Jun 2015, p.58]

  • Neil Genzlinger

    Well cast and written and staged with a campy sense of humor.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steven Shehori

    Although Killjoys has ambition and creativity to spare, it often lags in execution. Compelling storylines find themselves saddled with heavy-handed exposition and clunky, B-grade dialogue.
