Origin: Season 1 (2018)


Critic Consensus: Origin's overstuffed space drama mimics many genre classics to varying degrees of success; thankfully, its stellar cast and withholding premise are intriguing enough to encourage exploring its mysterious -- if familiar -- corridors.

Critic Reviews for Origin Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (1)

When Origin gets it right, it's just a ton of fun. The slightly scrappy nature of the series works in its favor, with fresh talent both in front of and behind the camera.

Put simply, though it might be seen as transitional show in hindsight for YouTube, the pretty predictable Origin isn't essential viewing except for getting a look at the look from the Resident Evil franchise kingpin.

Despite the schlocky space adventure, the series just might hook you because of its flawed protagonists.

The show never rises above its blatant influences... It attempts to cover too much ground and be all things for all viewers rather than focusing on telling a good, streamlined story

Nov 21, 2018 | Rating: 5.7/10 | Full Review…

Creepy imagery, sci-fi violence in compelling space series.

'Origin' is 'Lost' in space (pun intended), without any of 'Lost''s intrigue and charm.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Origin is a decent enough, entertaining sci-fi yarn that's unlikely to stick in your mind much once you've finished watching it. Whether that's enough to convince anyone to sign up to yet another streaming service is another matter.

Origin fails to bring anything original to the table. But that doesn't mean it's not worth a shot.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, despite Origin's good intentions and mysterious manner, it's simply too derivative and absent of any originality to really recommend an immediate watch.

What happens when you convene a ragtag collection of (hot, young) damaged people sent to inhabit a new interplanetary colony? The answer: not much, apparently.
