CookP1's Season Reviews is a comedy webseries created by Chris Cook, based around reviewing old Formula 1 races from days gone by. The series's main influences vary from RedLetterMedia to The Nostalgia Critic.

These tropes will blow up like a sack of potatoes blowing up:

  • Alter-Ego Acting: Chris is a type 3. The character's opinions reflect Cook's, but very exaggerated for comedic effect.
  • Berserk Button:

    • KI- *clap* -MI *clap* RAIKKONEN
  • Call-Back: Chris references past episodes of the series often.
  • Call-Forward: He also references current events in F1, tying into something that happens during a past race.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The very early CookP1 episodes used to be much shorter in length than the recent ones, only giving a basic review of the race's highlights without going into too much detail.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: "Panic Mix" has a really cheery-sounding tune but the lyrics depict Chris suffering an existential crisis.
  • Motor Mouth: Chris speaks very fast at times, especially at the start of races.
  • Running Gag:
    • Something blowing up like a sack of potatoes blowing up.
    • Chris getting irate at backmarkers.
  • Special Guest: There have been many guests in the series, with notable ones being Andre Harrison of the Motorsport101 podcast and Matt from Mystery Science Theater F1.

  • Spin-Off: F1 In a Nutshell and Ultimate Guide among them.
