Critic Reviews for Fix

These scenes call on an effortless charm, then an apprehensive fortitude, outright anger, forced humility, contemplative concern, and restrained self-loathing, respectively; Adams is always on point, while Camille is always on the edge of hurting herself.

The show... is intercut with dazzlingly dream-like imagery, making it hard at times to decipher between what's true and what's imagined. Maybe I'm expecting too much realism from a show with gothic and fantastical edges.

While I hope the rest of the series avoids sacrificing plot for character, Fix is still an astonishingly accomplished hour that begins the show's middle stretch incredibly effectively.

It feels like a mystery series with characters that are already more compelling than its mystery.

"Fix" is Sharp Objects' most gorgeous episode yet, stylish and unnerving.

There is a strong implication that she knows who did it, I think, or at least a sense that the teenagers know the town better than the adults are pretending to.

Fix doesn't move the storyline of Ann's and Natalie's murders forward in any significant way.

In "Fix," Sharp Objects shows that it's out to understand these women while they're still alive.

With the faint possibility of a detective duo team-up dangled in front of us, there's a chance that in the next episode we might move on from suspicions and start making sense of some of the details that have been building up along the way.

There are moments of vulnerability in Amy Adams' performance during scenes with Amma; just enough to suggest that Camille is truly craving the same sisterly closeness she shared with Marian and later Alice.
