Critic Consensus: Snowfall struggles to create a compelling drama from its separate storylines, despite Singleton's accurate recreation of 1983 Los Angeles and a strong lead performance from Damson Idris.

News & Interviews for Snowfall: Season 1
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.
Well-produced and particularly well-acted newcomer with a lot of moving parts, potentially too many.
For a significant chunk of the first season there's no crack in evidence... What is Snowfall waiting for? Snow, already.
