Season 1
South Beach

Critics Consensus

The stars of South Beach seek a fresh start but find a dead end in a stilted series that offers nice vistas of Miami, but bears the depth of a postcard.

Critic Reviews for South Beach Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (10)

South Beach ... operates like a subliminal ad for pout.

Mar 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The two grownups give the show a little class, but despite the beautiful Florida and human scenery, the verdict on South Beach is: Class dismissed.

Mar 8, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's not appropriate for kids. And with its predictable storylines and lack of character development, it's a waste of time for mature viewers, as well.

Mar 8, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

South Beach is filled with terrible dialogue ("Seeing you there on that stage, this is what you were meant to do," Matt tells Arielle), and it's populated by beautiful babes and buff hunks -- and not a brain to share among them.

South Beach could fall into guilty pleasure territory, but it really is as corny as it sounds.

You can spend the rest of your time trying to figure out why the producers didn't just make a two-hour Miami music video - though in a sense they did, since there appears to be more time devoted to song than to speech.

Mar 8, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The show's subliminal message is even more appealing to today's youth than the lure of sex, drugs and hip-hop.

Mar 8, 2018 | Full Review…

It's pointless to talk about who "stars" in this bloated music video, but the agents for both Vanessa Williams and Giancarlo Esposito need to be fired, summarily.

Mar 8, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's The O.C. meets Miami Vice, the MTV Video Music Awards, and Models Inc., plus a dash of Hamlet for flow. It's also not all that good.

Mar 8, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The dialogue and plot contrivances are banal, the acting is cartoon and the whole thing is more transparent than a see-through bikini.
