Critic Reviews for Rellik Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Rellik may not be the perfect murder, but it's one that as it unfolds, is worth at least keeping an eye on.

Top Critic

A show that starts with an interesting hook, but everything it hangs on that hook is overheated and just silly.

Apr 11, 2018 | Full Review…

I'll have to reserve judgement on this for now, but what I can say is that the show's structure is absolutely exasperating; ultimately the audience may not stick around long enough to find out if they're capable of keeping people guessing right to the end

Crime dramas tend to stand or fall on their resolution. Rellik will even more so, since its ending will also be its beginning.

Sep 13, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Told through rewound flashbacks - Rellik is "killer" written backwards - the drama feels nightmarish and out of focus.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

A tricky prospect...because of the way it is told: backwards.

Jul 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Thankfully, writers Harry and Jack Williams have constructed a narrative in which the ultimate payoff comes from the discovery and understanding of motive, across a much wider array of actions than just murder.

Apr 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The biggest problem with Rellik is that if it were told in regular linear style, it would only be notable for its unrelenting bleakness. Whodunit becomes when-is-it in a limited series that ends up as just another ydoolb ssem.

Apr 12, 2018 | Full Review…

I found the story a little cold, a little too clinical, a little pleased with its own cleverness, but by the end of the episode, I had been reeled in completely, and inevitably I am now desperate to know how it all fits together.

Rellik rarely takes is progressing beyond cleverness into narrative rewards.
