The Age (Australia)
The local rituals and unexpected blow-ins move along a plot that favours the charming over the conniving.

John Anderson
Wall Street Journal
Good natured and good enough, Irreverent is a 10-part series that has to rely on the charms of its cast -- which are abundant -- because the circumstances are both comedic and clichéd.

Todd Lazarski
AV Club
A twee, not-so-irreverent, premise-driven comedic drama that pits sunny, beachy Australian gallows humor against cynical American opportunism, and lightly roasts religious dogma with Mafia viciousness.
