Critic Reviews for Snowfall: Season 1

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (23)

Doesn't so much remold the template for the drug-fueled drama as much as allow very well-drawn and well-performed characters to play within it.

Snowfall will feel like too much work for some viewers. But those who stick with it will be rewarded with a drama that's both involving and important.

June 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

If anything, Snowfall is a series built on accuracy.

June 29, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Powering through all of them, which I did, yielded flash points of gripping storytelling en route to an extended season finale that mostly took predictable turns in setting up a planned Season 2.

It's not original in a way that's super revelatory, but it certainly looks amazing and tells a tale that's definitely worth an investment of time.

Singleton can't quite get to the core of why these sympathetic and intelligent people would be so willing to risk everything for a business whose ugliest elements seem to horrify them.
