  • Summary: This short-lived oddity (just 10 of 13 filmed episodes aired) depicted life after a global nuclear apocalypse. Oh, and it was a comedy. The series begins when two kids playing with an electronic toy at a parade accidentally set off a nuclear missile, triggering a nuclear holocaust which wipes out most of the world's population in under an hour. Episodes revolve around a mismatched group of six survivors who try to form a new civilization in an abandoned farm house. As you may have guessed, it is often cited as one of the worst television programs of all time. Expand

    The sextet wonders why they've all been drawn to the same farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. The answer is obvious: to give us several good laughs with which to end the weekend. [19 Sep 1992]

    This would just be another substandard sitcom, if not for its alarmingly sexist bent.

    As a concept, "Woops!" has satirical possibilities. But they aren't realized in the premiere.

    Hey, I like laughing at the apocalypse as much as the next guy, but from its title on down, Woops! is depressingly timid, displaying far too little of the Fox network's time-honored tastelessness.

    In messages delivered with ball-peen bluntness, the sextet talk of creating ''a new and better world'' from scratch. The only thing better about this one is there's no TV, no Woops! [25 Sep 1992]

    Something is missing in "Woops!," besides a second joke. ... It could have been the funniest show in the world, if there was a nuclear war, really, and this was the only one show left. "Woops!" is moronic on so many levels. [5 Oct 1992]

    Stunningly stupid. [27 Sep 1992]
