Axe Cop: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Axe Cop: Season 1 (2013)




Critic Consensus: Axe Cop is a subversive farce sprung from the mind of a child, giving the series a gleefully anarchic imagination to counterbalance its more sophomoric indulgences.

Critic Reviews for Axe Cop: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

Once made into an actual TV show you're expected to watch, the limitations of even the most febrile 5-year-old's fantasies become clear: 5-year-olds are not great on plot or one-liners and are pretty squarely still in the anal stage.

Once we know we're inside the brain of an imaginative 5-year-old, the show is hilarious and even occasionally touching.

Viewers will hear plenty of body humor and see distasteful images such as "bad guys" who are piles of poop come to life.

Axe Cop is an absolute psychopath in the funniest way possible.

Axe completely absurd and often hilarious, especially when you consider its pedigree.

It all adds up to a brightly colored vision of a world drained of anything that wouldn't inspire a fist pump and a cry of "Awesome!"
