Pure

Critics Consensus

Pure sidesteps the seedy pratfalls of its ribald premise to instead compassionately explore the complications of compulsion, shame, and struggling to make sense of oneself.

Critic Reviews for Pure Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (9)

The show is best when it's anchored in Marnie's perspective, but "Pure" does manage to expand its scope, catching glimpses of the sexual hangups and frustrations faced by Marnie's potential romantic partners.

Part of a growing canon of struggling-urban-millennial comedies, Pure is a warm-hearted but unsentimental portrait of a 24 year old trying to overcome her fears of what kind of person she might be.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Pure is a better illustration of OCD and its debilitating effects than it is a portrait of a young woman who has it, even with a fantastically versatile turn by Clive.

Sep 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Plucky, messy fun based on the memoir by Rose Cartwright.

Jun 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The series also manages to drill deep into the matter of mental health and the difficulty of finding help and understanding.

Oct 31, 2019 | Full Review…

Pure deals in extremes, but it is for anyone who at one time or another hasn't felt in control of their brain, and has experienced the awful fear, demoralisation, despair and loneliness that comes with it.

Top Critic

As sensitive and dark as it is hilarious, Pure is an essential comedy-drama about mental health, sex, and living with issues pertaining to both.

Aug 28, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

"Pure is proof that TV can be realistic, emotionally nuanced, and entertaining."

Aug 26, 2020 | Full Review…

While it addresses really serious issues in a wonderful way, Pure doesn't quite mesh them with the coming age comedy drama it wants to be.

Apr 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Pure is one of the most interesting series in the middle of so many others. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dec 18, 2019 | Full Review…

It wants to tackle a thorny hard-to-tackle issue. But Pure is a drama without thorns. It's too pure for its own good.

Feb 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Pure confronts mental health issues and sexual taboos bravely and its cast is excellent.

    Pure is a massive gift! I have Pure OCD. I can say this is an extremely realistic and dramatic representation of what it's like living with this condition. Simply brilliant!
