Critic Reviews for Striking Out Series 01

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

The outline of "Striking Out" is familiar enough that it might sound like an American show, probably airing Thursday nights on ABC. But there is nothing cliched about either the execution or the performances.

Mar 20, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

None of its characters bearing the slightest resemblance to anyone who actually exists in the real world.

Feb 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Given such restricted scope, it's hard to either develop a character or land a story arc, further constrained by such a short run.

Mar 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Self-assured in the courtroom but a mess in matters of the heart, Tara is a terrifically appealing heroine who's easy to root for, flanked by allies you yearn to get to know better.

Mar 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It's all very predictable, and predictably well acted. It's also fairly appealing, if you like the idea of a legal soap opera done in the style of a restrained British rom-com.

Mar 22, 2017 | Full Review…

The series isn't particularly different from what you might see on an American broadcast or cable channel, but it's notable that it often makes different (and sometimes better) choices in character development when familiar scenarios pop up.

Mar 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It breathes. It allows relationships to build, and be revealed, as the narrative progresses.
