Critic Reviews for Council of Dads: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

At once wholly predictable and oddly given over to needless twists, "Council of Dads" might not be breaking much new ground, but its built on a concept rife with possibilities.

March 25, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Council of Dads isn't as ridiculous as some of the other This Is Us rip-offs we've seen in the past few years, but its also not all that good of a show, either.

Extended family drama about illness is weepy, sentimental.

April 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Council of Dads has it all: a talented and diverse cast, family values, and an intriguing premise bound to pull in viewers.

March 25, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Council of Dads fails to connect with viewers on an emotional level because it summarizes what could have been an entire season of story in 42 minutes and then asks us to care about people we barely know.

March 23, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

At its core, the family story here works, and mysteries seeded through time are intriguing enough to make staying tuned seem like an appealing proposition.
