Critic Consensus: Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins's comedic skills remain sharp, but with uneven sketches and underwritten characters, Hitmen can't quite hit its mark.

News & Interviews for Hitmen: Season 1
It's amusing alone to see [Giedroyc and Perkins] here as neurotic daytime killers, even if their comic scenarios here can be big misses or big hits.
Average dark comedy is elevated by Brit stars' chemistry.
The chemistry between Mel and Sue is well established, and while Hitmen is an easy way to enjoyably pass the time, there's not much more to it than that. For a show about paid killer, it is incredibly light.
[It's an] an inoffensive and frothy series that never quite manages to be more than the sum of its parts.
You may not find yourself highly invested, but the show offers a few hours of breezily funny entertainment, and in this case, that's more than enough to make Hitmen worth checking out.
