What do you think? Do you want to see it? They have allegedly tried to imitate the tone of James Cameron’s 1994 action film True Lies.

Critics are at 50% while viewers are liking it better at 76%. Here we leave you some opinions of those who have already seen it.
- This is Arnold Schwarzenegger as we’ve seen him, since the early 1980s, pretty much unchanged at all. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.
- It’s a thin idea stretched out across eight parts and possibly more, with apologies for its military acronym, it feels wrong in mostly recognizable ways.
- As the eight-episode first season progresses, veteran showrunner Nick Santora and his writing staff tone down and sentimentalize “Fubar” into a barely engaging family drama and so-so workplace comedy.
- The Netflix series is a lighthearted comedy, but in exploiting Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Hulk-like action beast, it’s really playing to his strengths.
- If you’re looking for something serious or deep, keep looking, but if you want Arnold Schwarzenegger smoking a cigar while blowing things up with a young team of special agents, definitely try FUBAR.
- It’s very clear that the people behind FUBAR have gone to great lengths to make this series easy for everyone to digest.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger is back! I really enjoyed Netflix’s FUBAR, a sort of spiritual sequel to the action/comedy classic True Lies. Charming and funny, the series offers enough fun and light emotions.
