Home Before Dark: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Home Before Dark

Critics Consensus

Home Before Dark's central mystery is more intriguing than its mawkish writing lets on, but Brooklyn Prince's fiercely dedicated performance more than makes up for any narrative shortcomings.

Critic Reviews for Home Before Dark Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11)

Home Before Dark has all the hallmarks of excellent family entertainment.

Mar 31, 2020 | Full Review…

Hilde and the mystery of Richie Fife is, unsurprisingly, what keeps "Home Before Dark" such a compelling watch. Brooklyn Prince's passion for the role is evident, especially in the moments she has to stand up to the town sheriff.

Apr 3, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The main attraction, from start to finish, is the insouciance and conviction that Prince brings to her portrayal of a child who suffers for being an outsider but refuses to give into pressure from family, schoolmates, teachers and police to just go along.

Apr 2, 2020 | Full Review…

The contrast between this precious girl and the dark story she's reporting can at times feel out of whack... But as anyone knows if they experienced The Florida Project with Prince as their guide, she's a compulsively watchable actor.

Mar 31, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Considering that Home Before Dark is, for the most part, terribly written on a scene-to-scene level, its central mystery does offer a compelling baseline for the season.

Mar 31, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

In Prince's tiny, extremely capable hands, Hilde is a hero worth rooting for, even when she feels more like a symbol of hashtag feminism than a person.

Mar 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Home Before Dark really needed to make a better case for itself to stay outdoors.

Apr 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Too dark to be a family show, even though it has a family at the core, "Home Before Dark" offers a dark mystery plot instead.

Apr 1, 2020 | Full Review…

A satisfying mix of Harriet the Spy and Making a Murderer.

Apr 1, 2020 | Full Review…

Prince does an admirable job of embodying the young Hilde though she treads a very fine line between inspirational youngster and irritating know-it-all.

Mar 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Rather than paying tribute to a real-life journalistic trailblazer, Home Before Dark plugs her into a generic prestige-TV mystery, with journalism as an afterthought.

Mar 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Like all the original productions of this streaming service, Home Before Dark is impeccable in the technical level -- the music and cinematography are also strong -- and the nods to Veronica Mars are welcome. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Home Before Dark: Season 1

    A true masterpiece with strong performances. A relaxing watch that keeps you on the edge all episodes, without stalling the storyline.

    When I started this series I wasn't expecting a series with a lead kid actress to be so intriguing, but it did a great job on that! It kept me excited to see more, I never got bored, it wasn't slow for a crime-drama show. And what I liked the most was how characters weren't a bunch of idiots, nobody made me scream in anger at the screen. The soundtrack is amazing! The cinematography is breathtaking! and Brooklynn was FANTASTIC! I'm a new fan. I really hope for a second season.

    An unexpected hit, that will please adults and kids alike.

    oh this was different and good as well

    Wonderful Show! I'll wait to the 2nd Seasons!

    Great tv show for parents who want quality content to watch with their children. The little girl main character is amazing - as a character and as an actor. It is fun, sweet and wonderful content. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    I wish there had been a show like this when I was younger. I love that Hilde is an underdog who never takes no for an answer, I love even more that she's based on a real girl, talk Bout empowering our future! Easily watchable with or without the whole family. Great mystery, excellent performances, and an all around good time!

    home before dark is addictive inspiring and just a great to watch!
  • May 16, 2020
    Story may be the best thing about this series but cast and flow of story telling is complete trash.
  • May 13, 2020
    Not my cup of tea. Felt really obvious.
