[Reedus] is an engaged and engaging guide. Sure, there’s a lot of “let’s do it” and “that’s amazing” or “this is so beautiful,” and not every side excursion is as interesting as it may have seemed in the editing room (doughnuts in the desert are not as much fun to watch as they are to do). But the show admirably swings for the poetic democracy of the most famous road-trip chronicles and it succeeds more often than you might think it would.Los Angeles Times Full Review
Although through voice overs Reedus does try to convey some of his life philosophies, which is surprisingly zen, Ride is mostly about getting a chance to see places in the U.S. from a different perspective. However, because it lacks depth, without Reedus leading the way, there wouldn’t be much to Ride. If you don’t know who the actor is, chances are you won’t get a lot out of this series.Colorado Springs Gazette Full Review
