Critics Consensus

Shut Eye's solid cast isn't enough to overcome an overdone, overstuffed, and undercooked story.

    Without giving too much away I want to say that I really loved this series but I felt that when it ended it didn't really have any closure. It didn't feel like it should have stopped it felt like there was still more of a story to tell.
  • Jun 05, 2019
    it lacked the key attraction found in the main actor's previous show burnout.
  • Oct 23, 2018
    Loved it! want more!

    I really don't understand what is wrong with critics on Rotten Tomatoes lately, I love this show. Entertaining, funny, and the characters are interesting.
  • Apr 02, 2018
    Very interesting show. I enjoyed it very much. So much better than breaking bad.

    It deserved more than two seasons. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t a stellar breakthrough in writing, but if you enjoyed Jeffrey Donovan in Burn Notice, you will enjoy this a lot. Following Charlie Haverford (Donovan) who is a scammer with a small chain of fortune-telling businesses in the greater chunk of Los Angeles. A blow to the head from a client’s angry boyfriend intersects with a hypnosis session while auditioning a new “clairvoyant,” and suddenly, a man whose entire life has been based on fraud begins to see and feel some very real and fundamental truths. The show was well written, quirky and both fun and serious at the same time. Jeffrey Donovan was the central hub for the first season and that made it interesting. The second season tried to expand into the subplots with the secondary characters and that is where I think people lost interest. Not enough time on Charlie, too much time on his horrific wife. I did like that there was a scammer/psychic fraud underworld in LA. That was a new twist. The things I disliked other then the expansion was the way the wife’s character was written, and how Charlie wouldn’t do anything about it. I also disliked that the show portrayed Romani as the illegal underground for psychics. I don’t think it was on purpose, but it played into a lot of stereotypes about Romani, when it looked like they were trying to overcome that. Pros: Good acting, and a very up on it Jeffrey Donovan made this an interesting show. Cons: The loss of focus on Charlie, the representation of Romani and especially how horrible they made Charlie’s wife. Even with all that, I am disappointed there wasn’t a third season.

    Messy but there’s magic pulling the strings of this show. Blow some more scopolamine on me.
  • Jan 22, 2018
    I kept looking for something redeeming with the show and after 5 episodes, it just kept getting worse. I don’t like any of the characters at all. So I am finished.
  • Jan 04, 2018
    I absolutely love this show!
  • Dec 28, 2017
    This is one of the best modern shows. Pushing the limits and showing cultural differences. There is no fluff and all the storylines interact with each other. The one show where every scene matters. I watch it repeatedly to find new details I didn’t catch the previous go around. Would recommend to a friend.
