      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Outlaws is a touch too broad to mine much nuance from its concept, but its aggressive affability and merry band of miscreants make for a solid caper.

      Previous Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald It’s not just that there are six lead characters forced to do community-service work in Bristol. It’s that all of them, from Merchant’s sad-sack lawyer to Walken’s deadbeat dad, drag numerous other characters in, making it hard for anyone to shine. Apr 23, 2022 Full Review Judy Berman TIME Magazine This can be hokey, but mostly it’s humane, merging the experiences of people from different backgrounds without thoughtlessly equating them... Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Neal Justin Minneapolis Star Tribune Ignore the convoluted plot about a deadly turf war and enjoy the witty banter between the lovable misfits. Apr 5, 2022 Full Review Aaron Phillips But Why Tho? A Geek Community If you love shows with a brilliant ensemble of misfit characters that come together under comedic and oftentimes strenuous dramatic moments, then you should absolutely give The Outlaws Season 1 a watch. 8/10 Jan 23, 2023 Full Review Marty Brown Common Sense Media The Outlaws turns out to be simply a pleasant caper comedy with a fun cast and a great premise that never quite lives up to the complex and weighty task it sets out to accomplish. 3/5 Apr 27, 2022 Full Review James Field Pajiba The Outlaws is absolutely worth watching. It’s more drama, less comedy than I hoped for but it does find that sweet spot, particularly once the group begins to pull together. Apr 7, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Polly B The best series I've watched in ages. Laugh out loud & excellent performances Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review Alex L An endearing lineup of characters with an equally well-paced narrative. Both seasons are distinctively enjoyable. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Maxima I Waiting for season 2, one isn't enough. A breath of fresh air, not bad. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/28/23 Full Review Kathrynne W It's good fun. Stephen Merchant and Christopher Walken, themselves, would be worth it - but the whole cast pulls their weight. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/17/23 Full Review Neil J Dreadful. It's one of those "light entertainment" pieces that BBC TV still makes unfortunately. It's not funny enough nor not serious enough. So, what is it, a drama? A comedy? A comedy drama, which is a genre where without cutting humour, comes across as "pleasant" and something that would only appeal to those wanting no stimulation of any kind. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Michelle T The casting is great, the story is complex but believable, the pace moves along nicely and the humour is fabulous. Love the characters and the acting quality is excellent. Christopher Walken...what a pro, what a superstar. One character I found to be too obviously written (or portrayed) is Diane [Jessica Gunning], the community services officer. A lovely, easy drinking option for everyday consumption.
