Critic Reviews for Love Island Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

The producers must imagine they are onto a winner.

Jul 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

US version of dating competition has innuendo, drinking.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Because of the hodgepodge approach to provocation, Love Island is an absolute shit show of drunk 20-somethings hoping to never stop being polite and wish to avoid getting real.

Jul 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The producer's hand feels deft(ish) rather than heavy, as on competing shows like The Bachelorette. But it's still unclear whether the first episode of Love Island USA will attract viewers who don't already care about the original British version.

Jul 10, 2019 | Full Review…

For right now, though, the appeal of Love Island may just be that, for a show about people trapped together on a villa and forced to share beds with strangers, it's surprisingly comforting.

Jul 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Frothy, goofy, blunt and cynical, Love Island is the summertime reality bimbo of series America deserves -- hot, temporary, and yet cognizant that it embodies every assumption about the genre's dumbness.

Jul 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Love Island USA has cannily retained its British counterpart's rough-around-the-edges feel along with its sense of humour in a way that could help distinguish it from the slick, stomach-churning sentimentality of The Bachelor.

Love Island heightens the awfulness to a level where the crudeness is starkly illuminated for all to see.

Jul 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Based on first impressions, this looks like the TV equivalent of Brexit -- a tired echo of similar fare about as empty as the "love" in tennis.

Some of the other elements that make the British Love Island work so well don't quite translate on this side of the Atlantic.
