News & Interviews for Reprisal: Season 1
Reprisal builds in momentum as the characters converge and the chaos ensues. Enjoy the insanity.
It's just one layer of gonzo showboating on top of the next, a house of cards that topples whenever it leans too hard into small human drama it hasn't earned.
"Reprisal" isn't really noir, though. It doesn't have the style or the romance or the fatalism. It's an example - fairly diverting, but never entirely satisfying - of another currently popular television genre: the fairy tale of aggrieved American manhood
With your usual shows slowing down for the mid-season break, "Reprisal" is an entertaining show to binge during the upcoming winter break.
Reprisal has the potential to overcome those issues, but it needs to flesh out its two-dimensional characters and find more actual substance within its many stylish choices.
The out-of-time iconography, decades-straddling style, and anywhere USA setting (it's shot in North Carolina) invite the audience to relish Reprisal's pulp ethos and appreciate the twists and turns of the ride as Doris unleashes chaos.
Reprisal is a show that can be best described as one that needlessly spins its wheels in an attempt to find a story that just isn't there.
"Reprisal" takes a little while to take hold, as the viewer gets their bearings in this strange new landscape. But it's so audacious and unexpected that I want to see Doris' dark mission of revenge to its end.
Reprisal is smart and surprising. While it could have benefitted from being two or three hours shorter, it uses its time wisely enough to become a thrilling binge-watch.
The connection between Ethan and Meredith burns bright, and the people who cast Massoud and Davenport in their respective roles are geniuses.
Spencer's performance is good enough to keep viewers watching Reprisal. But to do so you'll have to watch the confusing parts revolving around the Banished Brawlers to get to Spencer's more interesting scenes.

Aug 05, 2020Captivating as each episodes unfold!
Jul 26, 2020Absolutely loved it. Couldn't stop watching it. I've been checking for a second season since the second episode. I am really bummed to hear it is cancelled.
Jul 12, 2020This show is incredible! I don't understand why the critics rated it so low?! I'm very disappointed Hulu canceled it. :(
Jul 07, 2020Fun! A strange alternative arty gang world... Absolute rubbish, but so stylish you want more. Only for those who can suspend their disbelief. Visual feast. Shame there is only one season!!
Jun 26, 2020Exceptional!Abilgail Spencer is absolutely amazing. She makes this show a must see week in week out. Every cast member delivers excellence in their acting ability. But the story is like no other. The writing shows what can be done to give audiences a ride in a journey few have experienced. Wow wow wow, Doris, Molly, and the two accomplices showcase true acting abilities. Meredith Matt, Ethan and Joel's nine year old daughter shows us how to keep us in suspense and truly entertained. But Doris will show you a strong female that steals every moment on screen. The best series ever. You MUST see this. A journey were you count down the days to see more.
Jun 10, 2020It's original, different, stylish, female driven...so of course it was canceled. Without even giving it a chance to find an audience.
Jun 04, 2020A surreal and glorious,deliciously decadent Rockabilly~Noir with a strong Cohen brothers & David Lynch flavour. The cast is flawless and the characters are complex and interesting. Katherine Harlow aka Dottie aka Doris is played by Abigail Spencer to perfection, creating one of the best female leads of all time.I particularly loved the ambiguous time line with a modern other~worldy twist to with 1950's vibe. Reprisal is everything you want in a T.V series;original, addictive and interesting with an intriguing plot to unravel ! This is television at its finest. I am so disappointed to find out there won't be a second season; something this good should disappear !
May 24, 2020most interesting show I have watched in years ....strong Female lead and was fantastic!
