Critic Reviews for Strange Angel Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

Strange Angel could develop into an engrossing adventure... but it's too content early on to dwell on the mundane instead of truly embrace the strange.

Top Critic

Nice-looking production that needs -- please excuse the cheesy pun -- a lot more rocket fuel.

Top Critic

A reasonably engaging slow burn.

Jun 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Strange Angel gets off to a slow, grinding start... In today's 500-scripted TV series environment, it's too big an ask for producers to insist on viewer patience.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

An intriguing case study in ambition, experimentation, and self-actualization through sex magick.

Aug 30, 2018 | Full Review…

The retelling of this story requires a worthy and weird vehicle, and Strange Angel appears up to the task.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Cult rituals, weird sex in intriguing period biography.

Jun 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If you're not expecting an immediate bang, the production design and scripts by series creator Mark Heyman (Black Swan) paint an absorbing picture of 1930s Los Angeles, its landscapes and its mores.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Stream it. The performances are all solid, and Rupert Friend is fun to watch as usual.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

I can say that, on nothing more than an unfulfilled promise and a few well-performed weirdos, I'm sold enough to keep watching this genre-shifting historical fiction -- though I'm not devout enough to spill blood yet.

    Great show. Finally a show for people who have brains. A history hidden from us for years comes into light. Well Done.
  • Aug 17, 2018
    Unlike anything else on TV, stylish, magical realism, a story of fascinating people at the cutting edge of technology, personal liberation and the occult. Loved it can't wait for more.
  • Aug 16, 2018
    I definitely think this show deserves a second season.
  • Aug 16, 2018
    ONE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY SHOWS OUT THERE. THELEMA AND ROCKETRY IS AN AMAZING COMBINATION WHICH THE SHOW ROLLS OUT IN A VERY MYSTERIOUS AND MYSTIC-Y WAY. THIS IS DEFINITELY WORTH A WATCH.
  • Aug 14, 2018
    Amazing job, I'd like 100 seasons :O
  • Aug 02, 2018
    The acting and characterization are top notch. The story itself is so interesting too. You really grow to care about the characters. Best thing on TV right now!
  • Jul 30, 2018
    Fascinating story. Great mixture of science and the supernatural. Everybody that I introduce to this is instantly hooked.
  • Jul 18, 2018
    Show seemed pretty solid til episode 2, when someone enters your home without your knowledge, you catch them, then call the police... even in the 20s or whatever time period this is. The cops would do something about it, they basically said its not a crime. Why do most shows have these moments of gaping stupidity? If they try to make the excuse oh the cops were in on it. That still makes no sense, every adult\teenager\child knows busting into someones home is a crime, they wouldn't just say oh well I guess that's normal....
