If the blend of CW or ABC Family teen nonsense and slasher appeals to you, then much of Scream the TV Series is itself good fun.

Scream: The TV Series does exactly what it says on the tin which is no bad thing.

This show does what it is designed to do. It gives you cheap thrills, introduces some very attractive characters, and makes you wonder who exactly is killing all of these nice (read: really, really mean) teenagers

There was a lot to like about this premiere. It set up the storylines really well for the season, but at the same time it left a lot to be desired.

Trust me, no-one was more surprised than me find that I didn't just enjoy the new Scream, I actually think it's one of the best, most clever reboots I've ever seen.

What I know for sure is that the old, iconic Scream mask is gone, but the new one in place will give you chills.

Scream: The TV Series is exactly what a reboot should be.

Although [Scream] took the story in a different direction, it still paid homage to the original films.

An incredibly MTV-in-2015 way to unravel a mystery: ridiculous, meme-obsessed, self-mocking, and fun if you don't think about it too much. Which basically sums up the first season of the network's Scream.

...(not) the impactful one-two punch (ending) one would have hoped for...the plot and the denouement end up better than three of the four seasons of American Horror Story...

Suspenseful and fun, this new MTV show is a real scream.

Scream is self-aware - not only of its genre, but of its intended audience.

Right from the first scene there's a unique energy to the piece. It doesn't feel like a knock-off or a cheap tie-in. It's a horror movie in weekly series form.
June 30, 2015
Luxe environments mixed with bitchy teen entitlement and karmic vengeance drive Scream beyond its slasher-exploitation film genesis to a stylish metaphor about a new generation's excesses and mean-girl cruelty.
June 30, 2015
Whether Scream can overcome Noah's legitimate concerns about adapting a slasher movie for TV remains to be seen. But tonight's premiere gets the show off to a strong creative start.

You gotta like any high school drama that starts with the mean girl getting stalked and stabbed to death beside her swimming pool.

Scream is exactly what you'd expect. It may also be exactly what you want.

The show is moderately fun and scary, but it largely settles for poking fun at the same clichés that were covered in the movies, giving us a little nostalgia along with the grins and goose bumps.
June 29, 2015
The TV version of Scream has so much fun gutting its origin story for inspiration, it almost forgets to be scary.
June 29, 2015
The result could easily have been a messy botch, but Scream is a little better than that.
