Variety

Variety

It’s sometimes horrifying and sometimes silly, and at times, Search Party can get a tiny bit precious with its own cleverness. But when it works, it’s an astounding and engaging journey through genre conventions that should be at odds with each other.

There are twists and turns, but things never get confusing. Each episode ends with a small revelation that keeps Dory moving. Even minor characters get full arcs and smart backstories.

It’s engaging, thoughtful television, and whether or not it can sustain its unique tone isn’t pertinent right now. What matters is the journey, and it’s been a charming, introspective and telling one so far.
