Promising concept morphs into low brow crapfest.

The premise itself gains your interest enough to take a peek to see into the world of survivalism as a spoof show, but the novelty all too soon lazily lends to witless banter and immaturely contrived plotlines that quickly become borish and feel like ill conceived filler. Sexual plots are rampant and overt with adult themes and simplistic gags being the mainstays. Talents like Rhys Darby are welcome attributes but seem held back and undermined by very base and immature writers. It seems with so many characters to deal with the writers just choose the LCD method of simple minded jokes with no clear purpose but to make another season of 'more of the same'. The show is neither here nor there on the comedy scale, and especially if "adult" content is ANY issue, skip this one for sure. The ads and previews seem potentially hilarious, but it is false advertising at it's best (or worst perspectively).

Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Drawing on recent classic Lost for inspiration, this preposterous comedy series is fun for a while, but it's neither clever enough nor well enough written to keep up its luster for long. Because much of the humor stems from the characters' stereotypically opposing personalities, it doesn't take long to predict how scenes will play out, and then the whole production feels trite instead of edgy.

Viewers with little palate for mindless humor will tire of what WRECKED has to offer, but teens may be drawn to its corniness, and here's where the show's chronic red-letter language and intermittent sexual innuendo create a problem. Ultimately this is a real know-your-kid situation. If your older teens are mature enough to dismiss this kind of content, they may appreciate this show's absurdity.
