Elite: Season 1 Reviews

May 9, 2020
It's twisty and sexy, teeming with clandestine crimes and clandestine rendezvous, but the show is also genuinely interested in the psyche of the ambitious teen-ager.

Elite is not pushing new boundaries in television... In spite of that - or more likely because of it! - its commitment to breakneck melodrama is undeniably enjoyable.

"Élite"is deliciously trashy and gloriously glossy. The show straddles the line between being an all-out soap opera about unruly sexual desires and a socially conscious, nail-biting thriller about wealth inequality.

Elite guarantees an interesting story. [Full review in Spanish]

Elite, full of nuance in its discussions about class, privilege, and sexuality, doesn't have to be relegated to yet another guilty pleasure. Just, please: Watch it with subtitles.

This tantalizing and whipsmart entry to the teen show pantheon proves itself worthy of the spotlight.

Unlike most high school dramas, the series tempers its over-the-top plot twists with real human emotion by focusing on the kids and how growing up too fast can have devastating consequences. Elite may be the best high school drama on TV.

If the British version of Skins left a gaping hole in your life, or if you've ever wondered what Mean Girls would be like if someone had actually killed Regina George, look no further: Elite is the hedonistic, bloody romp you've been waiting for.

This new Spanish series is excessive, yes, but it is well directed and has such a great technical approach as well as being very, very entertaining. [Full Review in Spanish]

With Euro-cool style and compelling characters, Elite is trashy, diverting fun.

Elite is deliciously trashy fare in a slick package. And there's more than enough there to hold your interest for a full season.

Elite is no masterpiece but is one of those oddly satisfying, binge-worthy curiosities.

An hour in I'll admit that I really don't care who did it. But I'm here for Élite nevertheless. It goes down like a cold glass of verdejo.
