Project Blue Book: Season 1 (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Project Blue Book will likely intrigue fans of the paranormal with its loose adaptation of historically unexplained phenomena, but this buttoned-down series lacks the narrative verve to appeal beyond the true believers.

Critic Reviews for Project Blue Book Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Tries to coast by recreating the facts and exploring how a skeptic might come to believe, but the doc's journey is sorely lacking in ingenuity.

Perhaps it would be best for everyone involved if Project Blue Book were locked away in a vault, like many a mysterious aircraft could very well be right now in Area 51.

Anyone who's watched McDonough on Justified or his turns on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow is well aware how much fun the actor can be to watch.

Overall the series holds promise as a connector to a true life trek into the possibly paranormal.

Even if it's less nuanced than The Americans and a bit cornier than The X-Files, Project Blue Book has a pulpy energy that carries it over its rougher patches.

Project Blue Book already has me hooked, and I appreciate the real-life cases on which each episode is based. It gives viewers a thought-provoking authenticity to the story being told.

Robert Zemeckis has crafted a period-setting UFO-investigative series that's polished and well-crafted but uninspired. It keeps more towards the well-worn paths rather than trying to carve out its own niche.

Project Blue Book is not only a retread, it's a boring retread to boot.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Even if the show has trouble finding its sea legs, it's a perfectly fun bit of distraction that could find an admirable groove if it proves willing to take a step back and make some calculated adjustments.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

"Project Blue Book" is a casually enjoyable period science-fiction series, easy enough to describe as a "fact-based" cousin of "The X-Files," minus that series' winking self-awareness.
