La Brea

Critics Consensus

There may be method to its madness, but La Brea simply doesn't commit to its insane premise hard enough to shake out a show worth watching - at least not yet.

Critic Reviews for La Brea: Season 1

Audience Reviews for La Brea: Season 1

  • 7h ago
    Horrendous CGI and awful acting.
  • 2d ago
    Cool concept, unbearable acting.
  • 2d ago
    This has got to be one of the worst TV series ever made. Seriously! So many errors from the writing, to directing, to everything else. One example from the pilot: After Ty (Chiké Okonkwo) shoots an animal that was lunging at Eve (Natalie Zea), Marybeth (Karina Logue) comforts him by telling him he had saved "the boy's life", referring to Josh (Jack Martin) who had been attacked by the beast but was not the prey it was going for when it got shot. Stupid mistakes like that are why network television has gone down the drain. One can't possibly think this is worth watching. What a waste!

    The concept of this show is every fantasy nerd's dream, however, to say the concept was executed poorly would be a massive understatement. This is a film disaster of nuclear proportions. The writers of this show should never write again in film and the CGI would even underwhelm audiences of late early 2000 films. Stay away and read the synopsis later.

    Another example of a great premise with poor execution. Along with other critics, I'm not willing to drive a stake through the heart of this show just yet. It might escape the tar pit of its own making with some better writing and directing. It might also continue to flail about and sink below the depths and get cancelled. In case you haven't heard, the short version is: an earthquake splits a big hole open in the middle of Los Angeles, several people fall into it but aren't killed because they fall through a dimensional rift that takes them back in time some 10,000 years to the same spot they left. As you might expect, there are a multitude of characters from moody teens to hero doctors to those looking out for themselves only. Yeah...I thought it sounded a lot like "Lost" too. And it is...just not as well-executed or acted. This show looks a lot like something that was originally scheduled to air on SYFY (another NBC property), but was upgraded to network status for some mysterious reason. I say that because SYFY seems to be the place where good ideas, mediocre CGI, and poor writing and acting seem to thrive. "La Brea" isn't all bad. It DOES have a good premise and the actors are trying with the material they've been given. A lot of shows (Seinfeld and Cheers, for example) struggled during their first season only to find greatness later on. Hopefully "La Brea" will be the exception and not the rule because NBC has a long history of producing shows that have lots of flash but very little substance. Personally, I'm going to watch a few more episodes, but I hope more attention to science accuracy is given along with a few acting lessons to some of the leads who look like they're in a daytime soap rather than a major network primetime series.

    Not sure all the hate but i am really liking it.

    What's worse the acting or writing. Pretty equal
  • Oct 12, 2021
    Silly theatrical effects, meh acting and a predictable story line makes for a wasted hour. Who falls through a sinkhole and looks like they stepped out of a beauty saloon? Oh ya, silly American TV....please. I'll save my attention for true drama and the outstanding acting of pretty much anything on most streaming platforms. CTV, through this one to the heap.
  • Oct 12, 2021
    This is such a ripoff of Lost that I think they literally copied a few scenes. It also has the vibes of a YA novel from 2012. A character introduction even went something like this... "wow... look at that dude siting by himself" "I'm __ maybe we should go talking to him" "okay I'm __" "ohh... I'm ___" cuts to a bad actor pretending to look mortified and all contemplative "Hey, we wanted to see if you were alright" "Bla, bla, bla shallow philosophical stuff... oh--and I'm __" yeah... okay sure. Maybe I'd recommend this to a fan of Manifest.

    How did this show get past the pilot show focus group screening. The acting is terrible, the writing is terrible, and the CGI is terrible. None of the actions or reactions of the people involved are believable for the unbelievable situation they are in. All that being said, it's an awesome show to laugh at and make fun of while you watch it.
