Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Search Party is a dark comedy series about a young woman and her friends attempting to solve a missing person mystery. It also deals with millennials and their personal issues, relationships, and identity crises. There's lots of crude humor (including simulated sex acts, but no nudity), and cursing ("s--t"; "f--k" bleeped). Domestic violence is alluded to. Apple products and social media outlets like Twitter are featured, and drinking (cocktails, beer, etc.) is shown.
Is It Any Good?
The dark comedy offers some fun, improvisational moments while telling a story with an interesting plot line. The ensemble cast offers some strong performances, and guest appearances by well-known comedians like Judy Gold and Parker Posey add their own hilarious flair.
Search Party is enjoyable, even though the jokes aren't always as smart or witty as they'd like to be. Nonetheless, it's worth tuning in if you're a fan of quirky comedy.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
