All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10)

A more-than-sturdy foundation for a fresh spin on the network detective series.

Smulders has been underrated for some time, and she's excellent here, finding just the right edge to the character but keeping her likable at the same time.

Mostly what struck me about Stumptown, however, was how fun it was to watch, from the chase sequences to the music to the chemistry between characters.

Fun crime solving drama with a strong, flawed female lead.

In a show filled with stand out characters, the most surprising one was the music. Stumptown is going to become the Guardians of the Galaxy of the TV world if they keep us this incredible soundtrack.

Sep 26, 2019 | Rating: 4.8/5.0 | Full Review…

Cobie Smulders is amazing in Stumptown and with plenty of awesome action and a lead it's easy to root for, the series has all the makings of must-watch television providing it can up the ante moving forward.

After the premiere, I'm confident I can live another week without Stumptown. I'm not worried about stumbling across any spoilers, and I definitely won't be losing sleep over this story.

If you're looking for something that has the unique blend of familiarity and innovation that a really good network pilot can offer, that balancing of the restrictions of the form with a show that wants to try something new, check out Stumptown.

[Cobie] Smulders is so charismatic as my all-time favorite dirtbag private investigator, I just genuinely enjoyed watching her story unfold on-screen.

    Very formulaic, but passes the time. Likeable actors.

    I've loved every moment of this show. It's been a while since I anticipated new episodes of a tv show this much. Looking forward to seeing what comes next!

    pretty good show, it has big star power and good stories. Not unusual for the lead character to have complex problems, inner demons etc. In this case PTSD and broken heart, but the show works, and good to watch.
