Critic Reviews for Outer Banks Season 1

All Critics (20) | 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.

Top Critic

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…

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.

Apr 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Outer Banks isn't exactly wholesome, but there is something about its sun-soaked adventure that feels emotionally authentic to the teen experience.

Audience Reviews for Outer Banks: Season 1

    Good series for teen and young adults! ❤️ John B
  • 2d ago
    my favorite show by far, a must watch!
  • 2d ago
    Worst. Ending. EVER. Clearly stringing the show out for a second season that no one wants
  • 2d ago
    Good teen drama, with a treasure hunt and rarely filmed landscape. Love ❤️ it! 4 star cause writing ✍️ is a little cliche.
  • 2d ago
    The season started out fine, but closer to the ending it got very sloppy with many plot holes and flaws. Funny to watch all the obvious flaws.

    It took me a few days actually to complete just the 1st episode. I had a cliche biased judgmental outlook on the main character John B, thinking he was too good looking to be a good actor (I know how that sounds) but after the 1st episode, I realized the actors potential and I was completely hooked. This is a must see. Drama, romance, humor, mystery, history (fictional). I definitely recommend this. I didn't mark it 5 stars simply because season 2 is unknown at this point and *hoping* the writers make season 2 just as good as season 1, but we shall see! All in all, I would (and have) recommend this to a friend. And that doesn't always come easy.

    For a teen drama I think this show is pretty entertaining and binge worthy. The cast make you feel like you are apart of their adventure and leave you wanting more at the end.

    Ment for teens/pre-teens. Awful casting, sub-par acting, and a poor storyline. The only people that like it are young teens that admire the characters and the laid-back feel of the show.
  • 4d ago
    Teen drama, completely unbelievable. Trash
  • 5d ago
    This show is horrible. Talent-less actors, absurd story line(s). Meant for the teen, pre-teen crowd. Just horrible.
