Critic Reviews for Floor Is Lava Season 1

The concept wears thin quickly. The floor is lava, don't fall in it, we get it.

It's good fun but the novelty wears off.

Floor Is Lava is at the lower tier - deep in the crater, if you will - of childish physical TV contests. If you have enough people and enough furniture to get an actual game of "the floor is lava" going, that would be a lot more fun.

For entirely frivolous, calorie-free fun, the latest Netflix guilty pleasure is Floor Is Lava...

Aug 7, 2020 | Full Review…

The liveliest watch of the week was Floor Is Lava, a game show on Netflix that felt so cheap, you were astounded the prize money was as much as $10,000 an episode.

Jul 20, 2020 | Full Review…

It's even more fun to listen to their banter on the course than it is to watch them leap and climb over obstacles.

Jun 29, 2020 | Full Review…

If you're looking for some mindless entertainment that will inspire some laughs, Floor Is Lava will not disappoint.

Jun 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The game is part obstacle course, part escape room, and there's strategy involved in both manipulating objects and navigating the room, as they try to choose the best path. It's a clever format.

Jun 24, 2020 | Full Review…

If you're looking for a summer distraction, it doesn't get much more mindlessly distracting than this. But depending on the size of your house, maybe don't try it at home.

Jun 22, 2020 | Full Review…

This show is for someone, though I'm not quite sure who.

Look. If Floor Is Lava is meant for you, then you already know that in your heart.

    What next? Celebrity tag?

    Only one word needed: Cringe
  • Jul 15, 2020
    I didn't get what they're aiming for. The premise is good but the contestants and the commentary are just... cringe.
  • Jul 12, 2020
    I had put this on for my young kids and they seemed to enjoy it. The premises is pretty simple, a team of 3 must cross a simple obstacle course in roughly 10 minutes or it becomes slightly more difficult. The first episode is fine. Very campy the actors they used as "contestants" were not funny and seem to be paid to be completely dense. Frankly this show could use a major overhaul if it gets a season 2. Maybe have the contestants be children's since that is the target audience and also make the obstacle courses grow in scope. Most of these courses are about the same level of difficulty, which seems to be abysmally easy. I think the show would have been better if it had 3 consistent teams you follow through each set of obstacle courses, you know give us some recognizable faces who we can root for or at least consistent team colors. Maybe have each course have a set time limit so the teams need to rush to complete the course. Also make the prize something more desirable. 10k is a laughably small amount of money for something like this. After sitting through all the episodes it is fine for really little kids. My 5 year old loved it. But I can't recommend it for anyone else without an overhaul.

    It seems pretty clear that this show is intended to be watched by families with young children, or perhaps, as background noise for large parties of adults. For those purposes, it is passable. If you are an adult watching Floor is Lava by yourself, however, it's probably worth evaluating whether you should dedicate your time to other, more productive pursuits.
  • Jul 11, 2020
    This show is a nightmare. Everyone who worked on it should be ashamed of themselves. Trying to be Ninja warrior and failing in every single way.
  • Jul 10, 2020
    Was tentative to watch but once I was an episode in I was hooked. Give it the chance it deserves
  • Jul 09, 2020
    Netflix...83% Really!! You'ze drunk, I sad. Please give me hope!
  • Jul 05, 2020
    unfunny and dangerous slapstick, lame puns and overdone commentary, barely functions as wallpaper, and unfortunately, after a point, not even that interesting as an escape room, puzzle-solving challenge.
