Critic Reviews for Christy Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

Look, I'm all for more wholesome family fare in prime time, but sitting through the first two episodes of Christy was like being hooked up to an intravenous drip of Karo syrup.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

It is earnest, well intentioned, based on a beloved book by Catherine Marshall, handsomely photographed, wholesome as a tea cozy, cute as a kitten and almost unspeakably humdrum.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Pilot is less heavy-handed than most, thanks in part to Michael Rhodes' sure direction and Patricia Green's fine, succinct script.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

This is an impressive production. The cast is generally quite good; Ms. Martin is extraordinary, making Christy's fresh-faced innocence utterly captivating on these beautiful and sometimes dangerous mountains.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

This is too nice a series to pick apart. Christy may be only a penlight in an abyss, but better that than no light at all.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Stands solidly on its own, representing exactly what we could use more of: hearty, dramatic television.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a kind of innocence and sincerity about Christy that is rare on television these days.

Jun 24, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Christy's story is as beautiful, enchanting and timeless as the region in which the show is being shot, Tennessee's Smokey Mountains. Kellie Martin... is accomplished beyond her years in the title role.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

It's based on the best-seller by Catherine Marshall and the pilot, at least, is excellent.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

It's romantic, sentimental, sometimes stereotyped and, in the end, a great showcase for the considerable talents of Martin

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

This wholesome show is much like The Waltons and Dr. Quinn, but rendered with a more literate sensibility and more conviction. The acting, however, isn't particularly distinguished.
