Game of Silence: Season 1 (2016)


Season 1
Game of Silence

Critics Consensus

Competent acting and a sufficiently intriguing premise aren't enough to make up for Game of Silence's unnecessarily convoluted, heavily clichéd storytelling.

Critic Reviews for Game of Silence Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (15)

Poor title choice aside, the reality showcased in the incoming drama is much more horrifying than anything a non-scripted series could provide. It's worth watching...

Top Critic

Here we go again, another network TV series that will be, at the end of the day, when the finale finally arrives and the feeble red herrings have been brushed aside, a game.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

A convoluted story that doesn't seem all that worthwhile to unravel, or peel - or watch.

Apr 11, 2016 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

This new limited series on NBC carries a punch.

Apr 11, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Top Critic

This is by and large a compelling drama.

Game of Silence doesn't seem to be worth the effort required to sort out its twisted plotting.

Apr 13, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It almost seems too violent , frantic and mercurial for what it is trying to be.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

A grim test of endurance, Game of Silence wants to do honorably by its subject matter while also luring you in with lurid shocks. It's a combination that cannot hold itself together.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

It's a decent followup to NBC's just-completed Shades of Blue and could easily appeal to viewers seeking casual viewing opportunities rather than a full-on binge-watching commitment.

Apr 12, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

I am conspiracy theoried-out and the prospect of a second season -- the first season ends on multiple cliffhangers -- leads me to conclude this isn't a game I'm willing to play.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

In the end, the most shocking thing about Game of Silence may be that it's not as shocking as it deserves to be.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

The villains are comically hissable, only one of many reasons why this too-familiar and forgettable Game is so regrettably missable.

Audience Reviews for Game of Silence: Season 1

    Why why why, do we only get one season of a brilliant show. Yet never actually make anymore. So you never get to see the finish. Please please make season 2
  • Jul 16, 2019
    The critics are wrong... Great cast, Great acting, edge-of-your-seat storyline.
  • Apr 21, 2019
    Just binged all of season one in a day, only to discover that there is no season two...very disappointed that NBC cancelled yet another great show. Yes I know it was 3 years ago now, but it's frustrating when they are still cancelling other shows all the time. It makes me not want to watch any NBC shows anymore.

    Always look forward to the next episode!

    One of the best, intense series made this year. Unbelievable they cancelled it already
  • Jun 11, 2016
    This is one of the best shows on TV. I actually cried at the series finale.
  • Jun 07, 2016
    I like stories with flash backs. I wish they didn't cancel. I wonder what they would do with the next season.
  • Jun 06, 2016
