Critic Reviews for Patriot Season 1

All Critics (28) | 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.

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

Top Critic

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

Nov 5, 2015 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 22, 2017 | Full Review…

With a tone that first confuses but soon captivates, Patriot was canceled after two seasons and it's still worth watching. [Full Review in Spanish]

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

Feb 2, 2018 | Full Review…

As absurd black comedy, a lot of this works very well.

Mar 1, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 26, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Mar 1, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Mar 1, 2017 | Full Review…

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

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

Audience Reviews for Patriot: Season 1

  • Jan 12, 2020
    Patriot Season 1 was a terrific ride, a completely original take on the entire international spy genre that was at once refreshing, comedic, and very very dark.
  • Jan 07, 2020
    Outstanding writing, dialog, plotting, and the characters are rich and compelling. The new 'Breaking Bad'.
  • Nov 25, 2019
    Unexpected joy. The twists and turns and artistry are so spot on! Beautiful work of art.
  • Nov 04, 2019
    Wonderful show, the European setting contrasted to the spy work really is interesting. Very irreverent interesting feel, everyone I know who watches it loves it.
  • Oct 18, 2019
    ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! All of the "facts" and "professional terminology" is made up so you can focus on the gripping and hilarious story telling instead of arguing about "that's not how that's done in my experience".

    I loved this show! It is very smart, funny and serious at the same time and incredibly well written and executed. PLEASE BRING BACK THIS SHOW!!!
  • Aug 07, 2019
    This series nails it so perfectly - a man on the brink, a couple apart, death, fear, nuclear weapons all wrapped in an hilarious bow. With excellent backstories for almost every character, I feared it might get boring and old, but it stays fresh, funny and also makes for a compelling drama. This is one of only a couple shows actually living up to the "dramedy" label. The entire cast is truly stunning.

    Favorite show of all time. Why no season 3?
  • May 31, 2019
    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.
