Critic Reviews for A Discovery of Witches Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

Palmer maintained an admirable balance of defiant competence and bewilderment at her situation. The discovery of the show's title will be in part, of course, Diana's own - of her past, the past of her people, her powers and her future.

Creepy and Goode brings a hollowed-out world-weariness to his role.

Some violence, romantic complications in book-to-TV show.

It's a show that can satisfy audiences looking for both Peak TV prestige and a good old fashioned scarefest, and there's not many shows that can pull that off.

A Discovery of Witches is actually really good at setting up things not only for the first season but for the series itself. We meet most of our main characters during the first episode and it sets up the drama for the season.

In the end, A Discovery of Witches is a mostly worthwhile addition to the seemingly endless parade of genre book adaptations that make for an entertaining, if not entirely satisfying binge-watch.

There's no shortage of gorgeous locations, swoon-worthy actors, danger or mystery on board.

A Discovery Of Witches most often calls to mind a smarter, gentler Underworld.

A Discovery of Witches is obviously not looking to give us the groundbreaking. It's aiming for highly watchable, and I do feel the pull to watch the next episode.

A Discovery of Witches potently mixes sensuality and the supernatural, adding a pedigree of scholarly wisdom from the hallowed halls of Oxford University.
