Dare Me: Season 1 (2019 - 2020)


Season 1
Dare Me

Critics Consensus

Visceral, if at times vapid, Dare Me's slow-burning thriller pairs nicely with its moody atmospherics to create a deft exploration of the interiority of teen life.

Critic Reviews for Dare Me Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

When that disorienting, who-to-believe framework gets reflected from multiple angles, "Dare Me" truly delivers.

Such plotting -- of teenage girls being pitted against each other and drifting apart -- could come off cliche, but Dare Me does more than incorporate the trope. It examines the way conflict warps the girls' perception of each other, giving it more nuance.

It's so smart about the characterization of its leads, and its central three actors are so specific in their deft performances, that it pays off.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

A worthwhile time investment for midseason, offering something more venturesome than your standard good time with bad people.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

I will, in general, be curious whom USA can get to watch this show, because even with its flaws and padding and occasional unevenness, it's a show with some real storytelling savvy and a clever approach to material that could be trashy in different hands

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Dare Me is long on atmosphere, short on plot, and distressingly overburdened with anachronistic dialogue.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Just in case the lame plot twists weren't enough for you, the show adds in treating eating disorders with a distressing casualness.

Dec 27, 2019 | Rating: 4.8/10 | Full Review…

A show that's dark and mysterious and never afraid to have a little fun - and of course one that's awfully easy to become addicted to.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Dare Me feels like one of those shows that you're either going to buy into from the start or just shrug and abandon because the story isn't moving along fast enough.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

What was at first a seemingly relaxed teen drama soon proves itself to be a skillfully told thriller with a penchant for surprises and twists that don't undercut the power of the narrative.

Dec 31, 2019 | Full Review…

The jury is out on whether or not this turns into a mystery we care about, but the pilot makes a strong case to at least stay tuned in.

Dec 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Come for the mean girl inter-squad drama, stay for the psychological mind games and the constant threat of violence. Every detail, every look, camera angle, and turn of the head feels perfectly calibrated.

Audience Reviews for Dare Me: Season 1

    Good show if you dont mind characters acting in rediculously implausible ways. High school cheer coach who smokes ciggarettes in her office, in the school, routinely and on her first day on the job. Check. Highschool coach who hosts full-on get-drunk parties with cheer team and somehow the whole town remains unaware? Check. High school Girls on several occassions driving down mainstreet in broad daylight holding 26ers of whisky out of the electric blue jeap to advertise how drunk they are and somehow no one calls cops or pulls them over? ....Just a few of the many scenes one can't believe were actually written for a non-comedy tv program. Do tv producers not actually care if the characters in their productions act like real human beings?

    This show is something I can't stop watching. I've rewatched the episodes so many times as if it were the first. The character's draw you in and it's so beautifully done. Megan Abbott is a genius and the cast they hired..whew!

    okay so lets start by saying this show is completly gripping from the twists and turns to the mystery and suspense the story is quite simple yet some how oddly complex with all the plot twists the shows perfection however keep away from kids please too much sex and profanity for their little minds and ears but two thumbs up
  • Dec 31, 2019
    The first two episodes have not disappointed! The show have brought the book into life just with enough drama, obsession, desire, passion and whatever you can think of! With just enough of mind games and thrilling love games, this show is definitely worth a watch.
