Critics Consensus

Briarpatch's ambiance is at times more intriguing than the simmering mystery at its center, but a captivating Rosario Dawson and surreal setting ensure it's never less than watchable.

Critic Reviews for Briarpatch Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (8)

[Briarpatch] is so kooky and yet so stagnant.

Feb 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Briarpatch has a wonderful cast and some inspired ideas; if it can slow down and figure out a more elegant way to deliver its fusion of icy cool and ramshackle quirk, St. Boniface will become a wry and appealing place for viewers to put down some roots.

Briarpatch is lovely to look at and its story clicks along at an entertaining clip. The trouble is that the second you stop watching it, none of its burrs stick.

Feb 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Characters flirt with type but finally come across as original and real and thus worth caring about, while the performances are first rate, rooted in decades of film history but individual and modern at the same time.

Feb 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Odds are high this will be a solid update on an old narrative, but there's still potential for more.

A slow burn is a tricky way of storytelling to pull off, and Briarpatch runs the risk of being remembered for a series that chose style over substance.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Sometimes too stylized for its own good, as if Wes Anderson adapted a John Ridley novel, Briarpatch is a slice of naughty noir that might satiate your mystery cravings this winter.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Sometimes absurdly funny, other times a little dull and draggy, "Briarpatch" is at least unlike the usual TV fare.

Feb 5, 2020 | Full Review…

The world that Andy Greenwald has set up in Briarpatch is one that's worth visiting, despite the heavy hand on quirk.

Feb 7, 2020 | Full Review…

Its faults are easy enough to forgive because Briarpatch is an easy and entertaining watch with a firecracker cast, kooky character, and funky world.

Feb 11, 2020 | Full Review…

The best way to describe the new drama Briarpatch is that it's not quite enough, and never really what you want it to be.

Feb 4, 2020 | Rating: 60/100 | Full Review…

It's not a bad thing to have Robert Rodriguez / David Lynch ambitions.

    I love it. Rosario is great and the cast is funny. refreshing tv, something different and mysterious with humor.
  • Feb 12, 2020
    Absolutely loved the show. Read the book and show is even better. The suspense, along with touches of humor, kept me riveted. I enjoyed several of the characters such as Pick Dill and Jake Spivey and can't wait to learn more about them. The animals made things seem out of control and lent an eerie touch. Looking forward to episode 2.

    Wonderfully noir. Great dialogue, interesting characters, can't wait to see where it goes.

    Rosario is great, show looks awesome, really fun story
  • Feb 10, 2020
    Pulpy, campy, sharp dialogue and a feast for the eyes. There's so much to look at and the nuances and humor in the dialogue make me want to watch this over the very next day. I can't wait to see the rest of the cast revealed over the coming episodes.
  • Feb 10, 2020
    Quirky vibe. Mix of David Lynch and Coen Brothers. Great start.
  • Feb 10, 2020
