Critic Reviews for The Wrong Mans: Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (18)

The series' absurdly complex plot and genre clichés are clearly tongue-in-cheek, but we still find ourselves rooting for the heroes and getting caught up in the suspense. Light and witty, the series is the perfect time filler.

[Mathew] Baynton and [James] Corden's refusal to resort to spoof means the characters are likeable, the jokes are properly funny and the action is convincing.
