Critic Reviews for Believer Season 1

More nuanced execution and a toned-down approach would at least make the appearance of conversion feel genuine and moving. Aslan never achieves that state, and that makes it difficult to buy into this show.

As a host, Aslan is charismatic. But in order to make Believer more believable, the show needs to stop trying to shock and, like Bourdain does with his series, find the extraordinary in the most ordinary of people and moments.
