Critic Reviews for Unbelievable: Season 1

All Critics (83) | Top Critics (24)

Unbelievable unfolds slowly and methodically and without melodrama. Its eight episodes take the time to show the cost of sexual assault on its victims, and its deliberateness heightens the ironic sting of the series' title.

Top Critic

If you like procedural crime dramas, it's top-notch.

December 4, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a faithful adaptation that plainly lays out the victims' stories and lets the audience see for themselves how differently they were treated, down to every question.

September 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Series such as... Unbelievable do something else too: They impose justice on a world that is anything but fair.

September 19, 2019 | Full Review…

As thematically fascinating as Unbelievable can be, it's also often dramatically plodding, if not grueling.

Top Critic

It's a tough watch, but it's a rewarding one, not just because it has one of the best ensembles of the year but because of what it says about hope and empathy.
