Critic Reviews for Highston Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (7)

Yes, this is one of those comedies that telegraphs its unique sense of humor with every other line of dialogue. However, that doesn't change the fact that some of it is very funny.

The young actor is endearing... He manages to make Highston sympathetic, but not pitiable, displaying a sort of real-world naivety.

Nov 12, 2015 | Full Review…

From the pen of Nebraska screenwriter Bob Nelson, this is a slight, charming story along the lines of the classic play Harvey.

An imaginary friends comedy in which the imagined friends are real celebrities, it has something of the whimsical pictorial formality of a Wes Anderson picture, and a shared love for the weirdo and the whimsical.

It's not at all clear where Highston might be headed, but the pilot is an enjoyable off-the-wall excursion into an absurdist land where network sitcoms rarely go.

Honestly, what's the point? Highston just feels like FX's Wilfred for people who don't like anthropomorphic dogs.

Although the cast is strong it never lives up to its individual parts. Only fleeting moments, like when Flea flips off a shrink who hates the Chili Peppers, prompt chuckles; the rest is as predictable as it is unremarkable.

Highston offers an enjoyable half-hour of television, thanks to a clever premise and good performances. The antiquated, small-town vibe of the show also makes it stand out from other TV comedies.
