Critic Reviews for Outer Banks Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (5)

Some of those later confrontations buckle under the weight of their plot connecting, but when "Outer Banks" dials its melodrama to its own sweet spot, there's enough fun to keep a story-hungry audience following along the trail.

The young cast here is surprisingly charismatic.

Apr 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Any dramatic shortcomings will be overlooked by those attracted to the show's basic premise: young people living unsupervised, on the margins of society, but who still get to behave like they have a team of lawyers on retainer.

Apr 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The sun-soaked scenery of the Outer Banks is a guilty pleasure. The teens are engaging and fun in this preposterous script.

Jun 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Perhaps not the best show on TV, Outer Banks does enough to satisfy its intended audience. Though this one's not for kids.

May 8, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Netflix's Outer Banks is Ozark meets The OC, but is worse than both

Apr 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Slick teen mystery drama series is fun guilty pleasure.

Apr 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's Stranger Things on Spring Break. But it's also a slice of deliriously daft hokum for these daft days.

Apr 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If everything about this show was just a little bit more engaging, or funnier, or more absurd, it would be actually fun to watch, but most of it is just so dreary... That said, [It] is actually very binge-able, mostly due to the constantly evolving plot.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

The show's golden, backlit laid-back coastal vibe is very immersive and easy on the eye, think The Notebook meets Dawson's Creek.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

"Bloodline" with training wheels, "Scooby Doo" with swearing...leave this one to the kids.

Apr 16, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Slick and smartly crafted, the first episode of Outer Banks is likely to hook a lot of viewers.

Audience Reviews for Outer Banks: Season 1

    The story goes back and forth on some matters unnecessarily, but overall it's a pretty good show and the plot is fun and intriguing. The characters have depth, so you get involved with them as well as with the story. Also the aesthetic and photography are beautiful, so it's pleasing to watch.

    The story and the characters draw you in from the moment the show starts. I thought it was going to be something other than it was but the whole who done it treasure hunt kept me wanting more. Memorable characters, and great storyline. Cannot wait to see if it gets a second season and where they go from there.

    The character's are funny, relatable and charismatic along with charming and extremely likeable and they play off each other perfectly all of them are likeable except Rafe and the plot if amazing they have funny moments, sad moments and uplifting moments they have twists and turns and is a great mystery show and if im being perfectly honest i CANNOT wait for season 2

    It's a cute show that captures a summer in the low country feeling. But... lazy writing and sometimes bad acting make this a mediocre show. The scenery and action sequences really save this show. It's shot in Charleston and captures it beautifully. It does give you a pretty fun adventure and the season finale was great. Writing needs to improve for next season.

    This show is amazing. I practically watched it in one day. I expected this show to be really bad, and boring. But it surprised me. The characters are very likable, and the actors are really good, too. Every character has a deep background, and the plot is very engaging. This show is very good, I enjoyed watching it, it was fun. If you end up seeing it, you'll probably binge watch it!

    Watching this was a mistake I won't make again. Half the time the story is cliched and predictable, and the rest it's inconsistent and convoluted. Also comes with sexualized teenagers, an unwarranted lack of realism, and an ugly yellow filter over half the shots.

    Great show! Summer vibes & action/adventure. Completely exceeded my expectations. A mystery adventure that kept me guessing while having fun at the same time. I thought it would be your stereotypical treasure hunt for gold, but it was not that at all. If you liked the character chemistry in Stranger Things (like I did), you'll like it here too. Don't have anything negative to say. Two thumbs up.

    It's fine. Not too original or mind blowing- simply okay. Watch it if you're bored and want to have a good time.
  • Jun 17, 2020
    This show is the perfect blend of that cheesiness we all see from the CW shows and killer writing from a team that knows what they are doing. The characters are incredibly fun to watch and the plot never dulls down, each episode was a ride. Excited to see where this show goes.
