Quarry: Season 1 (2016)


Critic Consensus: Quarry's distinctive setting and intriguing characters are just enough to offset a bleak narrative that struggles to make consistently compelling use of its assets.

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.

It's gritty, intense and engaging.

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.

Quarry wriggles out of the clichés that would typically come with a period drama set in 1972.

Quarry instead comes to life as soon as you turn it on, with a heartbreaking sense of soul, a strong ear for dialogue and an array of supporting players who lend the show an impressive degree of grit, gallows humor and suspense.

For fans of pulpy crime thrillers, Cinemax's Quarry will likely scratch the itch left by Banshee's departure.

Quarry has a great deal working in its favor, especially when it comes to the gorgeous depiction of '70s-era Memphis.

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.
