Critic Reviews for Hitmen: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10)

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.

August 12, 2020 | Full Review…

[It's an] an inoffensive and frothy series that never quite manages to be more than the sum of its parts.

August 10, 2020 | Full Review…

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.

August 7, 2020 | Full Review…

It's the unfakeable comedic understanding between Perkins and Giedroyc that really makes it work - they fit each other like old comedy shoes, and the one shoe instinctively knows what the other is doing.
