BUZZ - TUBEFILTER puts The Weekend Detectives in their ‘Indie Spotlight,’ calling it “smart and snappy.” Sam Gutelle claims, “the heart of the show is its tender characterization of its two protagonists… they always figure out a way to save the day, because this isn’t a show that takes itself too seriously. It’s fun, light, and well-executed comedy, and it’s hard not to like.” Click here to read more. - DECIDER features The Weekend Detectives in their Afternoon Delight, dubbing the show a “wonderfully wacky web series.” Jade Budowski says “the episodes are full of hilarious running gags and subtle moments that make it a stand out series, and the supporting cast (particularly Chief Daniels, played by the effortlessly deadpan Brian Russell) ensures that the McNally siblings are never lacking exceptional scene partners.” Click here to read more. - Five stars on STAREABLE, a site that believes “in television and in life, popularity doesn’t equal quality.” They highlight tv shows and web series in attempts to “even the playing field so shows are considered on their merits, not their marketing budget.” Fans have tagged the show “clever,” “fresh” and “brilliant!“ Click here to read more. - COMEDY CAKE dubs The Weekend Detectives “Just The Part-Time Crime Warrior Series You Need” as one of their Video Licks.

Directed by Nikki DiLoreto
Starring: Amanda Mason, Alexander Morgan, Eli Pauley, Matt Ketai, Molly Herzog, Sydney Lemmon, and Zachary Luke.
A new web series with short, theme driven episodes, that are excerpts from the lives of seven "millennials" living in Brooklyn...challenging the notion of what it means to be a millennial.
Although misguided at times, these seven people prove that young adults (like actual adults)... can still be intelligent, focused, and sympathetic human beings...even if they all seem to be Working On It.
