BrainDead - Season 1Laurel knows the U.S. governmental system has its issues, but when she starts her first job on Capitol Hill, she quickly learns things are much further gone than she realized: The government has stopped working, and alien spawn have come to earth and eaten the brains of a growing number of Congressmen and Hill staffers.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "BrainDead - Season 1"The AtlanticJuly 22, 2016
BrainDead never, in its execution, gives the impression that it truly groks the political system it mocks... never blends them deftly enough to suggest the deep knowledge that is required to make satire truly scathing.NewsdayJune 10, 2016
Not exactly satire, not exactly horror, BrainDead is not exactly much fun, either.Denver PostJune 09, 2016
Trouble is, in this election cycle, truth is funnier than parody and even brain-eating bugs from outer space can't top whatever is leading the cable TV news cycle.St. Louis Post-DispatchJune 13, 2016
The creators of BrainDead, Robert and Michelle King, gave us The Good Wife, in its prime the smartest drama on broadcast TV. Here, though, you want to ask them what they were thinking.Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.comJune 13, 2016
BrainDead is still engaging, deliciously weird, and well worth adding to your DVR rotation. I love it simply for existing and, especially, for existing on such a traditional TV network.Seanax.comFebruary 15, 2017
While the satire never cuts deeply, it is scarily effective how close their cartoonish outlandishness matches recent history, and frankly this show's science fiction explanation is more satisfying than the messy truth of our own broken government.FlavorwireJune 13, 2016
BrainDead is a teddy bear with fangs, a stinging political satire that bluntly criticizes Washington partisanship and yet radiates hope for the future.Philadelphia Daily NewsJune 12, 2016
There's a streak of idealism running through BrainDead that kept me rooting for the uninfected, and especially for Laurel and Gareth, whose politically fraught flirtation might just put the party back in the two-party system.
