News & Interviews for Patriot: Season 1
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.
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.
