Critic Reviews for Euphoria Season 1

All Critics (92) | Top Critics (33)

But getting "real" doesn't have to mean diving head first into a cesspool of drugs, profanity, promiscuity and a borderline indifference to it all. That's where Euphoria so far fails not only itself, but the many impressionable youth.

Top Critic

It's heated up, it's blunt, it's lurid - but artfully so.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Trolling the Family Research Council with graphic scenes of underage sex, violence, and drug use is easy to do. What's harder is using the same kind of imagery and action to make a point, or a change.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

That it's easy to buy into Euphoria's nihilistic vision of adolescence as distilled misery says more about us than it does about teenagers: Some people just love a good scare.

Top Critic

The series is certainly aesthetically pleasing and well-directed, with smooth camera work that boosts the characters' interior lives. But the writing is shaky, filled with clunky lines and not-so-twisty plot twists.

Top Critic

A coming-of-age show caked in glittery hedonism...

Aug 5, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a harrowing, heartbreaking, and often hilarious look at Generation Z that you can't miss.

Sep 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Euphoria is not just a teen drama riding its own shockwaves. It's a kaleidoscopic study of the Juul generation...

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It's an almost entirely character-driven series but that makes it no less thrilling, and it's only graphic because it needs to be.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's whip smart, often funny, sometimes sad and, hands down, the best new show of 2019.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's horrifying, yes, and salacious, but it's not just shocking for the sake of shock value.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

An uncomfortable and visceral drama. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Absolutely genius...

    LOVE IT! NO WORDS FOR IT! GREAT PLOT, GREAT CAST, GREAT SHOW
  • Feb 02, 2020
    this show is amazing from the cinematography to the acting and the writing but this show is not for anyone it is vulgar and has lots of nudity and has a few scenes with quite choppy line delivery other than that it is worth a watch just for its eyejizingly amazing shots and perfect acting. In conclusion watch this show it's amazing.
  • Jan 27, 2020
    Amazing, couldn't stop watching. Yes, might be overkill as far as how some teens are. But from experience, it's not to far off. Acting was amazing and story line on point. Other than being very crude and honest on how things really go down in some teens life, I thought it was amazing. Could of left out a lot of nudity and still been a good show as well. Don't watch if you are squeamish to nudity!

    Outra Obra Prima. A trilha sonora é genial.
  • Jan 20, 2020
    With very explicit and too extreme content, Euphoria will encompass teenagers to confront some of the most typical problems of their generation, while Zendaya will hypnotize with her incredible and electrifying performance.

    meu deus socorro melhor serie
  • Jan 07, 2020
    Euphoria is frequently melodramatic and unrealistic as it sacrifices authentic characters for banal archetypes, but those moments are sometimes forgiven by the show's thematic accuracy and visual style.
  • Jan 05, 2020
    Must see, new skins, but way better
  • Dec 29, 2019
    So raw. It feels like you're having the most beautiful dream but also the most terrifying nightmare.
