Critics Consensus

Though Industry's social critiques tend toward the superficial, sharp writing and an excellent ensemble make it easy to enjoy its soapy workplace drama anyway.

Five young graduates do whatever it takes to make themselves indispensable at preeminent London investment bank Pierpoint & Co.

But when Gus and Harper both cross the line, they risk compromising their futures at the bank.

Critic Reviews for Industry Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17)

I'm telling you, this is one of the best things on TV: superbly acted, brilliantly written, dazzlingly energetic -- and... it also chimes exquisitely with our times.

Nov 25, 2020 | Full Review…

Suppressing character development to build up toward big reveals is a tried-and-true storytelling technique, but it's hard to combine that with dense workplace drama and very little voice.

Top Critic

it's definitely worth toughing out the endless lines of coke to see what happens next, but even in a typical year [Myha'la Herrold] would earn Industry the benefit of the doubt.

Nov 9, 2020 | Full Review…

One sensed that this was an anthology of all the worst stories harvested during the writers' banking years rolled into one horror show, and it was this relentless inhumanity that felt slightly inauthentic and jarring... Still, I'm gonna stick with it.

Sometimes the show is a bit try-hard in its attempts to feel cutting edge, but overall Industry is fresh and fast fun. Get in on the ground floor.

Nov 13, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While the initial line up and the opening of the series seem compelling enough for you to wait for the next episode, the second will be crucial in gauging the pace and understanding the direction of the narrative

Nov 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Industry, is exciting, jaw-dropping, and irresistible.

Nov 18, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It felt like a metaphor for the millennial existence: hard lives, hard work, 90 seconds on Tinder, then death.

Nov 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Industry looks promising, with a stellar supporting cast, and enough sulphurous puffs of cynicism to remind the rest of us that, hey, maybe selling your soul to the highest bidder ain't so groovy after all.

Nov 17, 2020 | Full Review…

With its multiple characters, several of whom share a house, Industry reminded me of This Life, but without that drama's sense of humor and warmth.

Nov 16, 2020 | Full Review…

In other words, it feels true, even if you don't know if it's true and the direction is fast, modern, unflinching.

Nov 16, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Industry is greater than the sum of its parts thanks to its uncanny ability to capture the rush and confusion of a young person getting their first taste of corporate life.

Audience Reviews for Industry: Season 1

  • Nov 19, 2020
    I'm loving Industry! It's one of the most exciting things I've seen on TV for ages. This unexpected group of characters are thrust together in a high stakes environment, so we see all the drama and fallout that comes with that. Can't wait to see what's in store for them all.
  • Nov 18, 2020
    Very freshh. Liking this show
  • Nov 17, 2020
    Currently a part of banking industry and I can say this is a totally inaccurate depiction of the industry. It's like the show shoved every bad stereotypes ever found in the books in the pilot - this was extremely cringe to watch. Critics really do love anything that's anti-capitalism... so distasteful.
  • Nov 12, 2020
    I loved this! Can't wait to keep watching it. Great performances, interesting story!
  • Nov 11, 2020
    Utter rubbish. Trite and predictable with very few redeeming features.
  • Nov 11, 2020
    What a waste of time. HBO makes weaker and weaker series.
  • Nov 11, 2020
    Very difficult to understand. Characters are not likable. No back story. Do not waste your time.
