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.
