Critic Reviews for Stalker Season 1

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (26)

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

Sep 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.

Sep 15, 2014 | Rating: D | Full Review…

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

Oct 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.

Oct 1, 2014 | Rating: D | Full Review…

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

Oct 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.

Top Critic

Stalker isn't misogynistic scare porn. It's far worse: a dumb PSA for the dangers of misogyny, delivered with the grace of the NFL and narrative heft of a pornographic film.

Oct 20, 2017 | Full Review…

This is horrible television. Give it a miss.

Apr 26, 2017 | Full Review…

This shoddy program is nothing more than exploitative, misogynist trash. Everyone involved in the creation and production of this show should be ashamed of their association with it.

Sep 18, 2014 | Full Review…

Even if it's possible to get past the ugliness of the violence against women in the pilot, it's hard to imagine that a procedural with such a tight focus won't get old fast.

Sep 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Another twisted thriller that loves jumping out from dark corners and yelling boo. It's not bold. It just gets old.

Sep 15, 2014 | Full Review…

Stalker is, among other things, a perfect companion piece to lead-in Criminal Minds.

Audience Reviews for Stalker: Season 1

  • Jul 19, 2015
    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.

    I find it so amusing on how people just expect the victims to run/hide/attack. Have you been in a situation where you have felt scared or paranoid? How can you be so ignorant when expecting another person to have the same rational mentality as you when you aren't even in that situation?! This show highlights the situations alot of people face, that go unnoticed and how hard it is to punish people for harrasing others when the area is so grey. How it is so common in our society. I'd say this is one of the very few shows that I wouldn't mind watching and I am a very picky person so I think it did a great job grabbing my attention.

    This series educated us on the seriousness of stalking. People need to be educated and it maybe hard to watch but its important to know about it. Right now, I am a victim of stalking and this show somehow helped me and made me realise that I am not as alone as I feel.

    Bad writing and producing, take great cast and then turn the Heroine into a weak shadowy troubled character ... morons at producing and writing. And this is a critical subject ...

    I miss this series when will they bring it back

    I can't believe they cancelled this show! It was so good! There was a good plot, the acting was pretty decent, the characters had depth! They left it on such a cliff hanger, how could they not make a second season?

    I live in Australia, therefore Stalker is aired Sundays at 1130pm. Stalker is my absolute favourite show. The storylines are suspenseful, intriguing, and ultimately thrilling. I do not find it hard to watch at all, critics must have no taste in criminal genres, I, and many I know who watch the show love it. The show entails significant characters that have enabled its viewers to become emotionally attached to the non fictional storyline. I am truly gutted the show was cancelled after one season.

    you need to use your brane a little

    I watched most of this season and I liked it. I think I liked the subject matter. I like D.M. Maggie Qs acting was stiff and left something to be desired. I stopped watching it after I found out it was being cancelled
