Consensus: Though it can be confusing at times, Weirdsville is funny and quirky in equal measure.

Time Out

The paper-thin characters make it feel less like a rounded feature and more like a TV pilot with the promise of more adventures to come.

Half-funny and half-obvious, Weirdsville gets a little tiresomely silly, but Bentley still has a glare that burns through metal, and his rapport with Speedman is agreeable.
