Raised by Wolves: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Raised by Wolves

Critics Consensus

Bristling with imagination and otherworldly imagery, Raised by Wolves is a bloody exploration of artificial intelligence and religious belief that will stimulate the eye and mind -- if not the heart.

Critic Reviews for Raised by Wolves Season 1

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (12)

The series struggles to fill its time with meaningful development, and far too quickly abandons its frank nature for time-hopping twists and unfulfilling jargon.

Top Critic

Even if you're more on the fence about whether it all works -- or rather, whether it gets you at an emotional level -- it's certainly not going to provide you with typical sci-fi imagery.

Aug 28, 2020 | Full Review…

I didn't love the first three episodes, but I found them compelling. It continues to grow on me, however, as it's starting to do a better job of exploring the science vs. religion themes.

Sep 15, 2020 | Full Review…

The performances are disconcerting and effective. Amanda Collin's turn as Mother is particularly good, walking a strange line between mechanical and feral.

Sep 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Its a complex story told with incredible flair and imagination commenting on the increasing dominance of artificial intelligence over human life. Can't say its cheery, but the series is worth your while.

Sep 11, 2020 | Full Review…

If you are looking for a sci-fi show that is pointedly for adults without devolving into action schlock, Raised by Wolves will scratch your itch.

Sep 11, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Raised by Wolves gets off to a flying start, and even though a sci-fi trope minefield lies at the ready, there's a wealth of material for director and executive producer Ridley Scott to explore

Sep 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Although it is technically stunning in terms of on screen reality, there is a clinical undertone which diminishes any possibility for an emotional connection.

Sep 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Raised by Wolves is certainly all those things, and if it's not game-changing, it's at least entertaining. Put the kids to bed and enjoy.

Sep 10, 2020 | Full Review…

What distinguishes it is its thoughtful look at using beliefs and fairytales as the building blocks of society - something the atheists end up doing as much as the Mithraics, with even Mother and Father spinning fables to keep the children in line.

Sep 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's far from a romp, but there is plenty going on to make this world worth exploring.

Sep 9, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Smart and crunchy rather than sleek and slick, Raised by Wolves won't be for everyone. It's tragic, thought-provoking sci-fi that works through its problems rather than relying on big flashy twists.

Audience Reviews for Raised by Wolves: Season 1

    Great production and character development. Love the plot and storyline.

    Just registered here because I was apalled over the fact how some 'official critics' had so little grasp of what this show is about. Several complained about "Its just waiting for them to fight again". Seriously? This is not Avengers. This is about our ability to delude ourselves the same way as we do others. This is about leaving behind a world destroyed by zealotry, confronted with the demons of the past and the unknowns of a new world. The question of what is human nature and what is learned. It is anything but "cyborg and jesus freaks go boom boom"

    There are way too many plot holes in this series. It's stupid in many cases. I keep watching it so I can see if there are any cool plot twists with the religion in the future. Honestly, it's ok to watch but it's not worth your full attention. Do a crossword or play tetris at the same time you watch the show to have more fun

    Amazing and refreshing. 10/10

    It started off well but as time went on just got more and more absurd and overall boring.
  • 23h ago
    Pretentious nonsense to help insomniacs sleep at night.

    The first episode started off slow and I wasn't sure I wanted to continue watching but I did and I am glad for it. The following episodes turned out great. Just finished Episode 6 and it was awesome. Good show. Glad it got renewed.

    This is is on par with some of the best on HBO. I find myself waiting for the next offerings. Interesting the way they are releasing the episodes in groups. Not a binge but not holding back too much.

    A Ridley Scott production wouldn't fail me, I have been very interested in the philosophy of Android with the creator human, and mankind with the Creator.

    VERY INTERESTING AND EXTREMELY WELL DONE.
