Debris: Season 1 (2021)


Season 1
Debris

Critics Consensus

Though Debris' early characterization is a shade too ambiguous, its central mystery has enough spooky sci-fi juice to keep viewers guessing - for at least one season.

Critic Reviews for Debris Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6)

"Debris" is still setting things up but what's been presented is engaging so far. If it can find a happy medium between the worlds established by "Fringe" and "The X-Files," and enhance the banter between its leads, it could be something really special.

Mar 16, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Two decades ago, Debris would have felt new.

Feb 26, 2021 | Full Review…

As much as they're trying, the actors don't yet have the prowess to carry the emotive weight of the show. To find its space in this television landscape, Debris should rely on the power of the titular space junk.

Mar 16, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Taken as a whole, Debris may ultimately struggle to soar beyond its most familiar and predictable components. But, at least based on the pilot, its best qualities may make it better suited for this moment right now than you'd expect.

Mar 16, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

While there's no telling exactly where the new NBC drama will go in ensuing episodes - however convoluted, smart, or else perversely compelling - its launch is at least effectively eerie enough to excuse its otherwise basic instincts.

Mar 1, 2021 | Full Review…

I want to like this show, but I need it to freaking relax a bit.

Mar 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Debris is actually a meditation on how to engage with the messiness and chaos of the human experience.

Mar 12, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Debris has everything I want in a sci-fi drama. There's a creator I trust, a strong cast, well-written characters, and a story that piques the mind intellectually and emotionally.

Mar 4, 2021 | Rating: 4.25/5 | Full Review…

We're marginally recommending Debris because we like Tucker and Steele's chemistry and there's potential for the stories of the week to strongly support the greater mystery as the season goes forward.

Mar 4, 2021 | Full Review…

It's not completely impressive, but it's also not the disaster that one could easily imagine a show like this being.

Mar 4, 2021 | Rating: 3.25/5 | Full Review…

Not even the presence of Tucker, who is tremendous in everything he does and is the type of actor who can improve the quality of a project simply by being in it, makes this particular story must-see TV.

Mar 1, 2021 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

The Debris pilot as a self-contained introduction to a distinctly Wyman-esque premise is nearly flawless, but it will all be for naught if the show's audience doesn't quickly feel drawn to the lead characters.

Audience Reviews for Debris: Season 1

    We really need something on tv that is different. I like the show. My only complaint is that the British actors need to enunciate. I know the Brits may have the same complaint about the American actors. I do wish they would let us in on the total picture. I hope they have a plan. It could be another "LOST". So unless you want to watch the Chicago's wallow each other,, in a never ending bad love story. I guess this is it.

    I've read some of the comments, the comments that support the show even sounded vague. I think it's quite interesting and you can't want this show to be X-Files or you'll be disappointed, but tonight's episode really was significant in the relationship between the 2 main characters. I love the theme song for the show just as much as I love how the X-Files theme goes with the show. Hope to see it be all that it can be.

    Six episodes in and I still refer to this show as 'Deboring'. My favorite scene was when the tech guy tricked the main character into getting his lunch out of the refrigerator. That sticks in my head more than human tornados or people from the '70s and '80s escaping from another dimension after decades have passed. I keep watching because I really want to like it, but so far the pace is slow and the two leads are so much alike that neither one of them stands out. All of the strange events are 'nifty' at best and the premise is either original or a lazy way to set up a variety of events that live in that boring region between unexplainable and explainable. Everything is sort of explainable at the outset...' oh, yeah, that debris is doing stuff again'. *shrug*. I don't think this show will capture the zeitgeist like the X-files and it lacks the eccentricity of Fringe, but I'll probably finish out the season.
  • Apr 06, 2021
    Very underrated show... I see some people hating on it in the comments and I don't understand why... I guess some people just enjoy being negative.
  • Apr 02, 2021
    I have bee waiting for a good SciFi series for some time now: this is it! Two agents try to handle crisis situations when parts of an Alien spaceship fall to Earth. The cases are intriguing and the mistirious backstory keeps you interested. A real freshness to all this same-old same-old superhero shows. If you liked Fringe, you will enjoy Debris.
  • Mar 31, 2021
    Complete and utter garbage. Ridiculous plot lines, terrible acting and grade-school level writing.
  • Mar 28, 2021
    I find this very interesting. I am concerned it will not last long as a series so I rated it a three then changed it. It is more like three stars but the sci-fi intrigue is a five. So I gave it a four. I think the questions the show should raise as you watch t are not addressed or strong enough. I could be wrong. This show is still coming out and it might slowly address what I feel is being neglected. If questions are raised and kept going. It travels a show into many more episodes.
  • Mar 27, 2021
    The show has an interesting premise but the main charachters seems so miscast that after a while that you simply don't believe they are up to the task at all. Unintelligent and slooow dialogue makes the other, better parts of the series not worth following... After 4 episodes in its clear that this is no match to Fringe/X-Files or even the lighter Warehouse13. Shame, since it had the potential to be that.
  • Mar 26, 2021
    I quit watching after four episodes. The first 5-10 minutes of each episode was good and then each episode went downhill quickly. Very disappointing!
  • Mar 25, 2021
    I was hoping for another X-File but got another bad NBC drama. The back ground music is so loud that you need to turn the volume down making it difficult to hear the actors lines. The writing and directing is bad so sorry but not another X-Files. I doubt there will be a season 2 for I exited half way through episode 3 .
