News & Interviews for Panic: Season 1
If you're the type who can vibe out with a trashy teen drama, "Panic" might just be the show for you.
There was a time when Oliver's book would have made for an intense, entertaining 100-minute movie, but it strains under the pressure of a 10-episode season. Even for teenagers eager to take on the world, more isn't always better.
The series has a good idea and an engaging young cast, but it's hard to see it sustaining 10 episodes.
Panic is a nail-biter of a series that, even with a familiar formula, goes to unexpected places. It's as dramatic and pastiche as any teenage media ought to be...
Panic has its share of flaws, but if you're in the market for a compulsively watchable teen drama that doesn't require much intellectual commitment from the viewer, it might just be the perfect summer show.
It has a seamy "sin and scandal in a small town" vibe that's not unlike Riverdale, but Olivia Welch breathes such life and pathos into main character Heather that this series transcends cliches.
Panic Season 1 has a character problem, not so much from the main group of people, but from having a large number of those involved in the story.
It finds its real stride in building out complex characters, some of whom aren't even playing the game. And it's a show that understands how everyone in real life sees themselves as the protagonist of their own story.
A true edge of your seat type thriller with so much more to watch for than the game - lots of mysteries with twists and turns - while perfectly setting up for season two.
"Panic," in its best moments, suggests that facing down individual demons doesn't really matter when the demons can make money off of you
Panic has a difficult time finding its focus, and the YA tropes are abundant, but it has the potential to be a special series.
Audience Reviews for Panic: Season 1
1d agoI liked the premise. I thought it left a lot of questions unanswered or only partially explained. I loved the love story between Ray & Heather. Lots of symbolism and interesting characters. I watched the whole season and am ready for more.
4d agoThe proposal of the series seems good and original, but it is very badly exploited. It ends up being a silly teenage love story.
5d agoI don't know why I finished the show. Maybe not as many other shows around, but if you are into angsty teenagers doing stupid stuff, mixed with ridiculous romances... go for it
6d agoNot to often I can get my husband to watch a series. We both enjoyed it.
6d agothe plot twist could surprise anyone, it's totally worth it!
6d agoThis is a great Teen Drama Show. Still enjoyable to watch as an adult. Great idea! Great story line! Not cheesy at all!! Amazon is really stepping up their game! Plus fun fact, Jack Nicholson's son plays a big role! guess who he is!
6d agoOMG a must watch was skeptical at first but before I knew it I was hooked
Jun 07, 2021why is it that writers tend to give the characters no common sense are simple cognitive brain power. all the character in the show seem to not be able to make simple choices, understand the simple decisions, use common reasoning. the choices and decision the character make in the show are so bad a elementary school child make better ones. I tis sad when the writer makes characters do the most unnatural choices and actions. I got feed up after the second episode but wanted to force myself to finish the series to see if it could save it self; but that was a lost cause. the plot line began to unravel as the story went on; becoming nonsensical. the story to just jump around not making any sense and going in so many direction that nothing seemed to tie together. It seemed like the rambling of someone high on drugs. the characters seemed to have the possibility to become someone you could want to know more about and follow; but the writer kept destroying each and every character to the point you did not care what happened to them. you do not have to make every character to unrelated to common sense to make a plot line. Give the character some dimension and brain power. why is it that for the show or movie to move forward the plot point just jump out of nowhere without any reason. It seems clues just magically fall into the characters hand without any real work. every person that watches a show or movie is not lazy, has nothing better to do, or just stupid. some people watch to see a show or movie with some real tension that was built up, or strong character base develop into someone you want to cheer for or hate. the show was neither of those just a cash grab of nonsense.
Jun 07, 2021My three star rating is an average. The first few episodes I would have rated at least four stars, and the last few episodes maybe one or two at best (oh no, look out for the escaped tiger!) What lifted the show for me was the great acting from the leads, particularly Olivia Welch as Heather Nill, and Nancy McKeon completely owned her minor role. There was some sensational dialogue too, (great writing Lauren!) but also scenes where I felt like I was watching outtakes from The Young and the Restless. Suspension of disbelief was tricky even from the first episode, but became almost impossible by the final episodes. Most of the YA tropes were there, some nicely subverted, but that didn't detract from the show's watchability. Hey, I finished it, so it can't have been all bad! I freely admit that I am not the target audience for this show, so really I was comparing it with others of its type. And that's where it was ok, but not great. It could have been so much better if they'd just kept it a little more real.
Jun 06, 2021La storia è ben costruita e ti viene voglia di vedere una puntata dopo l'altra. Il finale si svolge in modo molto veloce, potevano andarci un po' più piano. Comunque vedrei la serie 2 volentieri.
