Baptiste: Season 1 (2019)

SEASON:

Baptiste

Critics Consensus

Though Baptiste does little to distinguish itself from The Missing, jolting twists and a deliciously jittery performance by Tom Hollander provide ample enough enticement for mystery fans.

Audience Reviews for Baptiste: Season 1

  • Nov 20, 2021
    After the excellent Missing, this show is a bit of a letdown. It's slower and less compelling. It also makes clear that maybe the Baptiste character is best in smaller doses, and not as the main actor, because half of what he says sounds like it's from Wikipedia, a fortune cookie, or a guru.
  • Dec 22, 2020
    Almost amateurish, seems like a RAI fiction
  • Jul 20, 2020
    He's old and run out of steam. The acting is as good as can be. The plot has been told before. Time to retire, Baptiste.

    Tried to delete my review but I cant

    Loved Baptiste. A compelling mystery with an elderly, retired detective who is smart and compassioate. I looked forward to it on Sunday night as tv highlight. I hope there are many more episodes.
  • May 18, 2020
    Huge fan of Baptise...loved his character on The Missing...want more!
  • May 18, 2020
    Really outstanding series, each episode better than the last. The actors nothing short of superb. The suspense just keeps building and building and just never stops. Probably the best thing I've seen this year. I'm hoping for a second series.

    It's that old "over-the-hill male called back to duty" plot, and retired French detective Julien Baptiste screws up so often, you'll think he should just stay home and spend his days solving jigsaw puzzles. The storyline starts out realistically enough, but the less than believable plot twists and Baptiste's tiresome pontificating made me wish my Firestick had a more user-friendly fast forward.

    Fantastic character, writing and stories. Baptiste is one of my favorites.
  • Apr 15, 2020
    The trailer for this show looked intriguing plus I liked the story being set in Amsterdam. I knew of Tom Hollander's work so I thought I'd give the show a try. I was blown away by the series. Outstanding plot and intriguing story. Tchéky Karyo who plays Baptiste is such an amazing actor. I didn't realize this series was a spin-off of "The Missing". So I binged watched these out of order! I am now suffering from post series depression. I miss his character! I truly hope they make a season 2.
