Critic Reviews for Blade: The Series Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (9)

Despite some interesting twists at the end, the cliches did pile up.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

"Blade: The Series"...is too dreary and weary for its own good.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Like most genre shows, it fumbles a lot in setting up the world and characters, but stick with it: after a few weeks it hits its stride and is a good antidote to the rather soppy bloodsuckers of True Blood and Twilight.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The lesson: Don't produce a series if you can't afford what it costs to make one.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

"Blade: The Series" is pretty good, really, as these things go. David Goyer, who wrote the "Blade" movies, as well as "Batman Begins," is the series' executive producer, so there's some quality control.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Even though [Kirk Jones] had twice as many hours and opportunities to nail the role, the Onyx rapper turned actor never fully inhabited it.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Blade: The Series is still very much a Blade experience. Full of violence and gore, sex and f-bombs, this is a no-holds-barred action treat that, sadly, only lasted 13 episodes.

Jul 5, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It was an earnest attempt but it lacked the quality action sequences that fans would come to expect from Blade and Blade II.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Terrible acting, horrendous special effects, a misdirected reliance on corny techno music, and a thorough sprinkling of campy melodrama resulted in this mess.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The problem with a two-hour premiere is getting a viewer tired of the action long before he may become invested in it.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Boasting more wit, polish and attention to detail than generally found in the genre, Blade: The Series [is]...among the most promising sci-fi debuts in recent memory.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Jones doesn't live-up to Snipes' performance, which isn't much of a surprise, and the series features some awful writing and dialogue.
