Critic Reviews for Aquarius: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Aquarius" isn't your typical cop show. It strives for more, and it merits that ambition in Season 2.

[Duchovny] is compelling and he is the best reason to give Aquarius another look.

The notion of series creator John McNamara is to submerge you in the period and culture that gave birth to Manson and his small army of disciples willing to kill for him, and Aquarius does that very well.

By showing us that things are slowly-but-surely headed towards their inevitable conclusion, it gives the viewer something to cling to, in knowing that yes, we'll get there soon enough if we're patient.

The problems of the age of Aquarius - racist cops, sexist workplaces, homophobic murders - are still unfortunately familiar 50 years later.

Audience Reviews for Aquarius: Season 2


Season 2 was significantly better than season 1 thanks to the addition of Charmain's storyline, Gethin Anthony's performance got better and better but the mainplot was quite weak and David Duchovny was necessarily staying on the show
