What The Critics Say (Metascore 43)

  • Quirky and unlike any current TV comedies, it’s got smart, dumb-funny humor and a great comedic turn by Mr. McDermott. — Robert Bianco, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • These early episodes have some of the usual growing pains first-year comedies go through as the creative team figures out what’s funny about each actor and character; they’ve already solved McDermott/Dave, so you have to wait to see if the others can catch up. — Alan Sepinwall, UPROXX
  • Like much television comedy, and like the flight it portrays, L.A. to Vegas has a routine, milk-run reliability. The trip is relatively free from turbulence, there are some things to see (and treats from the service cart if you’re lucky), and you are back on the ground almost before you know you’re flying. There is something to be said merely for not crashing. — Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times
