Critic Reviews for Stalker: Season 1

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (25)

Stalker takes a compelling, disturbing subject and turns it into something dumb and sensationalist.

September 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Silkwood shower, anyone? There's something desperate and torture porny about this show, especially since one of the stalker-catchers, McDermott, appears to be a stalker himself.

I couldn't get past that frantic woman, screaming in her burning car. Save yourself. Run from Stalker.

October 1, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The show comes from Kevin Williamson, who created the more equal-opportunity torture porn The Following, which at least has a literary sheen and some effective scares. Here there are just tropes.

Like the crime from which it takes its inspiration, Stalker is creepy and hard to watch.

October 1, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

As if CBS' Criminal Minds weren't offensive enough, here's a companion piece to juice the sordid stuff. Reprehensible.

From Kevin Williamson comes the procedural crime drama Stalker. Starring Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott, the series follows a specialized LAPD unit that investigates stalking cases; but unknown to them the unit's leader has a secret past as a former stalker victim, and as Season 1 progresses her past comes back to haunt her. It takes a while for the show to find a formula that works, but after a few episodes the writing gets better and the character stories become more compelling. Additionally, the list of guest stars that appear throughout the season is quite strong, and includes Mira Sorvino, David Anders, Caity Lotz, and Phoebe Tonkin. Also, the use of music is extraordinary; featuring usually covers and arrangements of popular songs that highlight the theme of obsession. Dealing with some dark and provocation issues, Season 1 of Stalker is quite daring.
