Critic Reviews for Liar Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (8)

It's all moderately gripping, I suppose. The performances are workmanlike, and the mood suitably tricksy.

Unfortunately, [Liar] found itself out-gimmicked and outgunned by its writers' other creation, whodunit-in-reverse Rellik over on BBC One.

In the end, Liar isn't the show we were hoping it would be. As is so often the case, lies might make for the better narrative, and the truth is an unpleasant one.

... every fresh twist forces us to question our own allegiances.

I could forgive their simplified storytelling if the effect was as dazzling as their previous work. Instead, Liar was disappointing in its lack of nuance and unbelievable lines.

Liar's depiction of rape wasn't just insensitive, it was reckless.

The conditions are ripe to force the audience to question the motives of everyone involved, and even themselves for indulging in this odd, queasy genre of 'rape thriller'.

This is such an interesting show.

The drama knows it is exploiting rape for entertainment.

But there's plenty of set up of he's so-and-so-who-knows-so-and-so to be done in an opening episode, and we are compensated with enough hints that things will get suitably fiery in episode two to stick with it.
