Big Sky

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.

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.

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.

    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!!

    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.

    Very quirky. Interesting but really far fetched.

    Yikes, was expecting waaayyyyy more!

    I hated Big Sky! I got through most of it, but was angry and disgusted by the graphic violence! I will NOT be watching this again, and I've let several friends know how I feel. Hope it gets cancelled quickly. America does not need this right now.

    Very disappointed. I get trying to shock, but killing of the biggest name in pilot here Makes me not want to watch it anymore. Could have picked someone else for that. The state trooper is the second most known and sure he stays, but it was not a good move to shock. Sure got me to watch the pilot, but lost me in the rest. Human trafficking or whatever this is about doesn't have me when you killed the best one you had. You lost one audience member at least.

    Cheesy, unoriginal, hammy overacting, sophomoric script and unlikeable characters assure this household won't be watching episode two.

    WOW. TERRIBLE ACTING! Dialogue so bad.
  • 5d ago
    Poorly written, poorly acted, cringeworthy..
