Audience Reviews for Instinct: Season 1

    We really liked it, so off corse it gets cancelled!
  • Jul 30, 2021
    Cute show. But why does Hollywood keep portraying gay men as feminine nelly queen types ? It is such a stereotype of gay men. Most gay men are just men who act like most other men you will know. Most gay men are not Diva Liza Manili wannabes. The Sopranos had some episodes (late stage) of 2 gay guys that was probably more accurate depiction of gay men.

    Poorly written. Dialogue is force and not real. Actors seemed more interested in attempting to pose than actually act or interact. I was looking forward to this show. Most I blame on the writers and the director. Do not expect a logical flow in developing the case. You get through 75% of the show to suddenly get leaps in logic. The plot has more whole than swiss cheese.

    I love the show! Wish they had more episodes in a season.

    Just dreadful. Terrible acting and a dodgy US accent from a UK actor.
  • Sep 08, 2019
    It was a good show❤️

    A bad one-off from Elementary.

    Clever, inventive plots, brilliant casting, better than average acting. What is not to like?
  • Oct 25, 2018
    A show I don't want to stop, I enjoy the way it's formatted and the mystery going on throughout the series. I also love how the relationships work in this series, it's not the mains falling for each other and the main man has a wonderful healthy relationship with his partner which is wonderful to see on the tv. The show touches on various topics which can be hard but it is relatable and they present them realistically in my opinion.
