Critic Reviews for Sneaky Pete Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17)

Sneaky Pete is indeed pretty sneaky. At first you're rolling your eyes at what seems an absurd stretch of a premise, but soon enough you're buying its always-on-edge predicaments and after a few episodes you're hooked into its story-upon-story acrobatics.

After a shaky start, Pete gets denser, trickier and better.

In a twist on the "grandma con," he (Ribisi) turns up at the home of his cellmate's grandparents and claims to be long-lost Pete. The believing grandparents take him in, and I won't spoil the delightful results with details

Like so many other Amazon shows, it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's a reminder that TV can be fun.

Sneaky Pete is not one of those intricate series. It's relatively easy to follow, and, more important, it's a lot of fun.

Jan 11, 2017 | Full Review…

It all works in the pilot because the characters are convincingly human.

Over the course of 10 episodes, Sneaky Pete shows viewers a nicely paced timeline of life for con artist Marius Josipovic after he's released from prison and assumes the identity of his cellmate, Pete Murphy.

Aug 26, 2018 | Full Review…

It's gritty, hard hearted and violent as it glorifies Ribisi's character's manipulative, con artist lifestyle. Can't say I enjoyed it. Honestly, aren't things scary enough IRL?

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

That's the thing - Sneaky Pete isn't reinventing the wheel here. But it is providing a fun, easily binge-able caper.

Dec 28, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Funny and suspenseful, Sneaky Pete is an excellent idea for this weekend's streaming TV viewing.

Dec 28, 2017 | Full Review…

It's utterly captivating. Totally gripping. The best/worst sort of intense.

Dec 26, 2017 | Full Review…

If one can suspend - no, expel - disbelief, the Amazon series Sneaky Pete is twisty fun.

    Another great series that was cancelled way too soon

    more down to earth breaking bad, takes you on mental and emotional trip

    First season was a delight. One of my favorite seasons of any show in some time. The plot twists were amazing. The characters were well developed and lovable in their flaws. Definitely a great show if you were a fan of Breaking Bad. Might even be the first show I've seen that is close to Breaking Bad in quality in that genre.

    This is a fresh tomato.

    Great show. Impeccable acting from Ribisi and Martindale as well as the rest of the cast. Great plot, script, pacing and some funny moments that don't feel out of place. Season 1 is a masterpiece and so is season 2 and though season 3 is slightly slower and focuses more on the family you still get fantastic performances from fantastic actors and a good easy to digest plot. Overall one of my favourite shows as of late.

    Such a good series. So many twists and an excellent plot line. Hope I can find something to watch next that is just as good.
  • Dec 13, 2019
    Wow, amazing show. So interesting, though the last season got a little too complex for me to follow. Giovanni Ribissi is incredible, Margo Martindale and a host of other great character actors.
  • Nov 23, 2019
    Hooked. I love the characters, especially the family. The Grandparents are badass. This was fun to watch.
  • Sep 20, 2019
    Just got caught up on the 2nd and 3rd seasons and very sad to see afterwards that it was canceled. Such a great show. Hopefully another network will pick it up for a 4th + season(s).

    Clever and hilarious.
