Stumptown

Critics Consensus

Simple, but strong, Stumptown moves at a brisk pace and packs a serious punch thanks in large part to Cobie Smulders' star making performance.

Critic Reviews for Stumptown Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (11)

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

Top Critic

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.

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.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The supporting cast, which includes Jake Johnson and Michael Ealy, is also delightful. The characters genuinely like one another, and many times that makes for a more pleasurable watch than tense police dramas.

Top Critic

The show carries an obscure vibe to it from its dark-colored aesthetics to its topics of mental health and life's woes, but still maintains enough wry and satirical humor to carry a balance within the show's tone.

Dec 5, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Stumptown is good, period, without the "for a network show" qualification. It's got a strong cast and fun storylines... It's smart and fast and formulaic in the right ways only so far.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

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…

Stumptown is a series to be enjoyed. It's pure prime-time entertainment that has a shot at being the next beloved network procedural.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

[Tantoo] Cardinal's work always elevates a project.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Actress Colbie Smulders elevates this well-made procedural private eye drama.

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I want so much for Stumptown to be the show I know it can be, but after "Dex Education" I'm prepared to be disappointed.

Audience Reviews for Stumptown: Season 1

    I always look forward to new episodes. Dex is a mess. But a great detective. She goes from aimless to finding something she's good at and likes doing that helps her as much as other people. And I really like that the show has been willing to cover topics many others would ignore. It's fun. And I like the rest of the cast. Everyone has their own story and motivations. Sometimes detective shows center too much on how brilliant the detective is and this avoids that.

    I'm loving this show. Cobie Smulders really shines on screen, and there's a lot of really endearing characters. I hope it picks back up so we can have a few more seasons!

    Nice pace and a very likable cast of characters drive this show home every week. Very enjoyable!

    Stumptown is my 3rd favorite new drama of 2019, one of my top 10 favorite new shows of 2019, and one of my favorite shows of all time, it was a A+ first season. Cobie Smulders gives a phenomenal leading performance, she gives a funny, deep, and strong performance. The supporting performances from Cole Sibus, Jake Johnson, Camryn Manheim, Tantoo Cardinal, Adrian Martinez, and Michael Ealy were stupendous. The writing and storylines are outstanding. The stunts are awesome and spectacular. The soundtrack is excellent. This was a terrific first season.

    Needs a bit more scripting care, but overall strong with very compelling characters. Now let's have the writing do justice to the cast.
  • Feb 06, 2020
    Formulaic crap. The cop is a veteran-woman-bisexual, which helps to remind us how unoriginal the rest of the plot is. Skip this one.

    One of my favorite shows on TV.
  • Feb 05, 2020
    Good show. Cobie Smulders does amazing
  • Feb 02, 2020
    I hope it gets renewed! It's really great!

    Really like this new show. Cobie is great, she is likable but with an edge. A lot better than some of the other detective shows.
