Critic Reviews for Quarry: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (10)

It's a show that opens the dark corners of crime and, like Quarry, we have little idea of what might come at us as the series unfolds.

Quite simply, it's the best production design work since Mad Men ended, and fittingly realized by veteran TV director Greg Yaitanes.

This is a thoroughly gripping show that hooks you in from the start, with skilful storytelling. It's the best thing I've seen in a long time and I've got high hopes for it.

Mac's complicated past and present leave him haunted and restless, and Marshall-Green has a low-key charisma that fits Mac's sensibilities perfectly as a flawed anti-hero that's worth rooting for.

Audience Reviews for Quarry: Season 1


It's no Banshee, but Quarry is excellent in itself. The premise is rather simple yet the storyline was quite complex, a bit hard to follow. It's dark and gloomy, but compelling enough to keep me watching.
