With the important caveat that Wynonna Earp, premiering on Syfy on Friday (April 1), isn't as sharp, funny, thematically rich and consistently well-cast as Buffy was even in its bumpy opening season, there are enough elements in common to justify a tenuous comparison and enough small pleasures to encourage continued viewing.The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
The premiere episode jumps into the action and atmosphere immediately, though it takes a little while for the show settle in to what is a very fast-paced story. But by the second episode, it’s already found its rhythm.Collider Full Review
It’s all a bit fuzzy, but then it’s all in good fun. Television has plenty of room for strong female characters.The Detroit News Full Review
If it all sounds a little by-the-numbers, it is. But part of the fun of both Westerns and pulp revenge stories is setting up the tropes to play with them later, so Wynonna Earp could just be getting a few things out of the way before the shenanigans really get started.The A.V. Club Full Review
