Self-described as a bunch of nerdy-ass voice actors getting together to play Dungeons and Dragons, Critical Role mixes a lot of good humour and fun with some genuinely strong acting and storytelling. If you enjoy D&D, you will likely enjoy fun game play, but prior knowledge of D&D isn’t necessary as the storytelling, great voices, and strong acting really make it a compelling show – you can definitely see that these people are professional voice actors.
