Critic Reviews for October Faction Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (0)

October Faction is problematic in a lot of ways. One of them is the way the show handles its many subplots. Some seemingly important subplots have no resolution whatsoever.

Nov 18, 2020 | Full Review…

October Faction is unlikely to rock anyone's world, but there's just about enough going on both narratively and visually to mark it apart from its teen-appeal bedfellows in a very over-subscribed Netflix marketplace.

Mar 2, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It's best to stick with the original comic. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

October Faction interjects excessive and unnecessary amounts of cursing that don't feel at all organic in some cases, ultimately compromising the intensity of some of the scenes.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

I'm pretty sure a major character's hair color drastically changed for no reason. I'm also pretty sure a major character died on-screen, and I couldn't tell until they cut to the tombstone.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

October Faction has more than enough family angst to keep a viewer interested. Now, if there's more monster hunting added to the mix, the show will be a hell of a lot of fun.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

The quality control is on a serious wobble over at Netflix Original central and this half-baked effort is a real cause for concern.

    I love it. The end could be better.

    Another Gayflix series! A few years ago there was a very popular series called Buffy The Vampire Slayer that was really good fun and interesting for all ages. Along comes this Netflix clone and they just cant resist the full on inclusion scenes just in case we are not sure! Buffy did it so much better and so much more subtle. These Netflix series are now becoming full on cringeworthy eyes to the ceiling groans of "ugh here we go again" bore fests! Yes we get it, there are gay and lgbtq people out there, but why do they feel the need make every show that they make the focus of it. Forget the agendas and just make good shows! Rant over!

    This show was one wild ride. I started in one evening, and before I knew it, it was just shy of 5:00 AM. I went to bed, then watched the rest of the episodes when I got up the next day. It will suck you in...this is not just a show about the paranormal, supernatural, or science fiction, but because it is a show driven by the interpersonal relationships between the characters. It is just a simple, snd just as complex, as life itself. Well worth the watch, but only if you have an open-mind, and love the outlandish.

    I really enjoyed this series and was really looking forward to the second season. It has a great balance between the drama and action that goes on and has a really strong storyline that could easily keep a few seasons going. extremely disappointed to see it won't be coming back. I feel it was just ost with the huge flood of new streams and needs more time to catch momentum and the attention of Netflix watchers.

    Basically a collection of the most annoying actors out there.
  • Nov 23, 2020
    A very under-rated show, a shame this has not been renewed for season 2
  • Nov 03, 2020
    quite alrightly.. not tooo exciting
  • Oct 06, 2020
    I honestly disagree with the decision to cancel this show. Though the plot didn't pull you in quickly, I was hooked by episode 6 and couldn't put it down. I am in absolute shock, I finished the show not 5 minutes ago and found out that season 2 is never coming. I cant believe it after the cliff hanger of an ending!
  • Oct 03, 2020
    Full of cliches, very predictable, the plot is weak and as every netflix series if heavily conpromised by politically correct and lgbt brainwashing. We need good stories not this
  • Sep 15, 2020
    Started out ok and got awful as it went along... I advice read the comic book and give this one a pass
