Critic Reviews for Patriot Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

What sets Patrio" apart - and makes it a bit easier to digest in binge-able quantities - is its peculiar sense of humor.

Patriot is a show for viewers who enjoy tonal risk-taking, who are prepared to accept that you can't hit a home run unless you take a swing. The plain, generic title of the series does no justice to the creativity on display.

Writing this funny and dark is perfect for episodic storytelling and Conrad found the perfect cast to act out his craziest whims.

Patriot has some moments that work, but it mostly feels like it's trying too hard to be edgy and idiosyncratic.

Pledge allegiance to Patriot. You'll be glad you did.

Roy Price, we beg of you - more of this, please!

What could be a straight-up thriller is sabotaged on an industrial scale, threatening to collapse under layers of quirkiness, mechanical bulls and bizarre urine tests.

It's these weird but human moments that propel Patriot, ...even as it keeps the spy-thriller plot simmering.

It's a wonder that Patriot ever made it to the screen. Happily, it did.

I found myself getting more and more invested in its loopy rhythms with each passing episode.

    Favorite show of all time. Why no season 3?

    One of the best discoveries I made in 2019 was Patriot - can't believe I missed it up until now, but then again it doesn't seem like I'm alone. Darkly funny, relentless, and - if you watch both seasons - superbly plotted. Well worth your binging...

    Do not miss this show. It is utterly awesome. Without a doubt some of the best television ever made.

    This show needs to get picked up for a third season

    They had me with the opening theme song in the first season. Unfortunately in the second season the song was replaced by a horrible hiphoppy thing. I have to hit the mute button for a minute to get through the audio/visual mess displaying the credits. It defies logic that a great show featuring good music let this dog with fleas in the house.

    Brilliant series. Dark, hysterically dry, unexpected and heartwarming in a twisted twisted way. Dorman's amazing, as is the rest of the cast.

    The current best show on Amazon that needs to be viewed.

    Love this show, this is proof that a well written story, plot and script with good acting trumps any amount of special effects or production value (Last Jedi, I'm looking at you). It is witty, cleverly written with excellent (dark) humor. The characters development are awesome, you really feel for the main character and empathize with what he is going through.

    Don't be put off by the name, this isn't some jingoistic American drama but rather an extremely dark comedy with some very clever dialogue (and a great self-sung soundtrack). Many episodes feel like a self-contained movie.

    This show is amazing.
