Critics Consensus

Big Sky's shaky setup doesn't do it many favors, but viewers who can push through may find its fast-paced, twisty mystery compelling enough.

Critic Reviews for Big Sky Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

"Big Sky" wants viewers to believe it's something new, something different, something great. After two hours, all those claims just seem like hot air, and worse still, it's not even a good procedural.

Curveballs abound. The neon lights are flashing. The pages are turning. Where will this end up? Who knows, but with this excellent cast, sharp writing, and evocative locale, "Big Sky" does an even better job of making us want to know.

It would approach parody if it was more enjoyable.

Nov 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The network is clearly banking on it to succeed, and considering it has no other new drama competition on the network, maybe that is really all that it needs to succeed. But as a story and a fully compelling show, it needs to do a lot more.

Nov 18, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Big Sky throws just enough storytelling curveballs to pique interest... But if the series doesn't start to cohere after a couple more episodes, some may be inclined to move on and simply leave this mystery unsolved.

Nov 18, 2020 | Full Review…

"Big Sky" is a well-paced multiple cliffhanger with bursts of violence as well as some exquisitely executed emotional sequences.

Nov 17, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

This kind of intrigue always makes for at least some good TV fun.

Nov 20, 2020 | Full Review…

I have no idea if the series is any good yet, but it is a blast to watch.

Nov 20, 2020 | Full Review…

While the ads for the show mixed humor, weirdness, and mystery together to create an intoxicating blend of excitement around this new network drama, the show itself, disappointingly, falls flat.

Nov 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Big Sky has that shock at the end of the first episode that may keep you watching, but you'll learn that the story that goes from that point isn't really all that compelling.

Nov 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Flips back and forth between soapy goodness and fast-paced thriller every other second.

Nov 18, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Big Sky rivals the best of what premium cable networks have to offer and should become your new Tuesday night obsession.

Audience Reviews for Big Sky: Season 1

    Ridiculous plot, and it's offensive to the Native women who actually go missing in MT (where I live). Feels like a wannabe Twin Peaks, but it fails. Worst thing: it's so uninteresting that I don't care what happens. I'm out after 2 episodes.

    okay i may be going a little overboard with how good the show is but its most definetly one of the absolute best programs of the year its twisty and action packed fast moving and very very fun ot keeps you guessing some characters you cant figure out even watching for weeks it is for sure the big drama of the fall

    Such a disappointment I really hoped for more. The charachters are creepy and story is boring. Given the cast I really thought it would be better.

    Laughable! Unreal! Not even three grown-up women can wrestle down a little nerd with an electric pistol. They even had the element of surprise. Omg what disturbing and terribly bad hahahaha

    When are casting agents going to realise Phillipe is as wooden as they come. ‘97's "Breakdown" was a fantastic, suspenseful movie and this does it no justice, intentionally or unintentionally.

    This show was promising. But sadly the only good thing about this show was the acting two of our main characters are annoying and act like they are five years olds who have no idea what the fuck they are doing and the most likeable character in this show dies at the end of the first Episode. Also you expect us to believe that the only Cop looking into the kidnapped girls is the bad guy? Really? Only ONE COP is looking into the Disappearance of a string of missing girls? Im sorry but that is just so very stupid.

    Watching the second episode and in one scene, the three young women, all seemingly strong and healthy, are confronted by their captor in a trailer. They are only confined by a length of chain, quite long, and he is insulting one of them when she head buts him and knocks him down, bloody nose and all. What should have happened would be that all three attacked him, overpower him easily, gotten keys, or key, and freed themselves. Instead, he gets to his feet and leaves. Bad scripting, in that, like so many action films, the unbelievable happens, and characters do things that, in actuality, no one would do. I won't watch this show any longer, just as I discontinue watching movies that exhibit the same scripting.

    Ensnares you from the start and leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for the next episode.

    I enjoyed the show until the ending. That was a shocker. Was looking forward to seeing Ryan through the whole series!!
  • Nov 21, 2020
    Boring and predictable honestly. The fact that two women are fighting over a man who clearly doesn't care about them is ridiculous. It was easy to tell who the killers were almost immediately. The "shocking" plot twist was unfortunate and not a good move on the show's part for future viewers. Honestly, I would skip this show. It's not worth the hype.
