Meadowlands: Season 1 (2007)


Season 1
Meadowlands

Critics Consensus

Meadowlands is an ambitious drama that tries too hard to be edgy and dark, but ends up feeling disjointed and messy instead.

Critic Reviews for Meadowlands Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

As the uneasy and distinctive social comedy gives way to torturous interrogation scenes and plot illogic, "Meadowlands" loses important points on the specialness meter.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Refreshingly original and addictive.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Whether or not they add up to much, the scenes play well, and there are enough heavy-breathing soap-operatics, random acts of violence and unanswered questions to keep one idly watching.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Its ambition far outstrips its ability to deliver the message.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Complacency makes for dull television.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Fine acting is not enough...

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It all feels a bit disjointed and awkward, while cribbing the best moments and elements from other, better shows.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Lucy Cohu, as the unhappy but darkly sexy Mrs. Brogan, is striking, but the show's tone of enigmatic menace is overcooked.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

We're all The Prisoner here, eager to escape our confines.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Fans of the genre who also like the more seamy, mysterious aspects of shows like Twin Peaks, or feature flicks like American Beauty, will not be disappointed.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

With plenty of mysteries to unravel, Meadowlands is a stylish, edgy drama (with a touch of camp) that will draw viewers into its web.

Oct 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As it goes on, the show becomes overly dark and sadistic.
