    What matters is that the world-building is fast and funny; jokes about this dystopian culture pop up in the background or get tucked into spare seconds of dialogue, but they’re never ignored. Weird City is very funny, but it puts story and characters above commentary all the way through.

    What it lacks in mass it makes up in energy, wit and taking care to look good. .. Exuberant and even sunny, it’s tricked up with productive details and design, with small verbal and visual jokes you can't call throwaway because all are there to build a world.

    The anthology style also means that the show’s success is more hit or miss depending on the episode. . ... Weird City’s writing is sharp and self-aware enough (and its casting exciting enough) to at least give it a shot.

    In broadcast TV terms, this is more “Night Gallery” than “Twilight Zone.” ... Weird City is built on one twisted foundation.

    Weird City tries to go for gonzo, and ends up facedown in the mutant-worm-aerated dirt. ... If we’re supposed to take it at face value, it’s boring; if we’re meant to laugh at it, it’s repellent.
