News & Interviews for Outer Banks: Season 1
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.
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.
The sun-soaked scenery of the Outer Banks is a guilty pleasure. The teens are engaging and fun in this preposterous script.
Perhaps not the best show on TV, Outer Banks does enough to satisfy its intended audience. Though this one's not for kids.
It's Stranger Things on Spring Break. But it's also a slice of deliriously daft hokum for these daft days.
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.
The show's golden, backlit laid-back coastal vibe is very immersive and easy on the eye, think The Notebook meets Dawson's Creek.
"Bloodline" with training wheels, "Scooby Doo" with swearing...leave this one to the kids.
Audience Reviews for Outer Banks: Season 1
6d agoWow! Just wow! Can't wait for season 2!
May 11, 2021Entertaining. A more dramatic and less funny OC. Pretty corny. Was super excited going into the last two episodes but they were the annoying type of drama. Didn't understand why he was running instead of just surrendering so it was frustrating to watch. Very intense tho and still pretty good
Apr 06, 2021I absolutely love this show. I can't wait for season 2
Mar 03, 2021loved every minute of it. the beggining u would think its a cliche normal teenage series, but it gets dark towards the end. and the story gets really interesting
Feb 25, 2021Outer Banks proves very quickly that it will give off many great journeys and a lot of generic things in between, but will even out to be a well made drama with a finale that leaves you really hoping for a second season to come.
Feb 22, 2021Outer Banks nails the hazy, dreamy feel of summer in the Islands that shows such as Dawson's Creek sensationalized, but it's also limited by inconsistent acting, poor pacing, and a plot that doesn't draw as much interest as the setting. Episodes and story got progressively weaker.
Feb 18, 2021Surprisingly good. I didn't expect much from this show but was pleasantly surprised. The chemistry between actors is great and really sells the teen atmosphere. The dialogue is reasonable and not too cringey. I was a bit a hockey in how much they developed the characters, especially considering it's a teen show. In addition unlike many teen shows the plot stays grounded and clear. The ending was a pretty good (if a tad predictable) cliffhanger. Lastly I really liked the cinematography and editing. They created this fun aesthetic, almost otherworldly environment where the kids live. It's quite pretty and provides the audience an escape. I'm quite excited to see what season 2 will bring.
Feb 17, 2021This show is unbelievably iconic . The actors were amazing, the background story as literally everything and the energy the show had- so much adrenaline and enthusiasm omg- and not to include the gorgeous views we got in almost if not every scene!!!
Feb 03, 2021What started out as a promising series just crashed and burned!! I'm unsure why so many people enjoyed it!! There were a few touching moments centred around the friendships however, it thoroughly depressed me. The domestic abuse, the portrayal of drug dependent rich kids! Can none of these kids catch a break?!?? The fact that the police took the word of the adult over the kid from the wrong side of the tracks, ugh!! In short cliche and frustrating, a massive let down!! Don't waste your time!
Jan 21, 2021A touch of Goonies, A touch of Uncharted, A touch of Scooby Doo. Great little cast that you can easily invest in. The show is a bit hooky in places and much of it unbelievable and at times the story is a bit too rushed but that doesn't make this any less entertaining. easily binged in a day or two. Well worth watching
