After selling their gaming company for millions, Josh (Jim Howick), Leon (Samuel Anderson), Ewan (Jonny Sweet) and Watto (Nick Helm) discover the challenges their new wealth brings and working for Casey (Mary McCormack), a Vice President at the parent company that bought them out in this dramedy based on the Mesudarim, the Israeli series created by Muli Segev and Assaf Harel.
What The Critics Say (Metascore 67)
- Loaded moves along quickly and even when the subject matter gets dark, it doesn’t hit very hard. Don’t expect too much hilarity, but there are some smiles of recognition, some solid performances and a little bit of currency (both topical and financial), making Loaded one of the better examples of a not-particularly-great genre. — Daniel Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter
- The show’s generally more amiable than it is funny, with most of the overt laughs coming from Mary McCormack as Casey, sarcastic executive from the company that bought Cat Factory. (“Think of me as a sexy Darth Vader,” she tells them.) But the genuine affection the friends have for each other is charming (and in many ways a bigger deviation from Silicon Valley than the size of everyone’s bank accounts), and the better stories find a sweet spot between absurdity and sincerity. — Alan Sepinwall, UPROXX
- Loaded does exhibit its share of heart, but as for brains, well, it could use a few more of them. — Brian Lowry, CNN
