Tell Me Your Secrets

Critics Consensus

Lily Rabe, Amy Brenneman, and a glut of insane mysteries nearly save Tell Me Your Secrets - alas, it's simply too underwritten and cynical to fulfill its alluring promise.

Critic Reviews for Tell Me Your Secrets Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6)

The first two parts of "Tell Me Your Secrets" are certainly engaging in a potboiler sense, but it's not at all clear that its makers can keep it up for 10 episodes.

Feb 23, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Creator Harriet Warner obviously has no lack of imagination, though she does exhibit a serious lack of restraint. The show does have its own mad energy and if you like crazy content measured by the pound it may be for you.

Feb 19, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Both actresses are good - with Rabe being downright great - to give us something that we can invest in. The problem is the script treats this like a potboiler when it deserves more seriousness.

Feb 19, 2021 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Silly as all get-out, but fun to watch.

Feb 24, 2021 | Full Review…

A mixed up, teetering series.

Feb 19, 2021 | Full Review…

Lily Rabe is riveting as Emma.

Feb 25, 2021 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, solid performances, impressive production design and thematic intent can't save this show from feeling inherently predictable.

Feb 25, 2021 | Full Review…

The wig is bad, yes. It's still easy enough to hang with this series to watch the mystery unfold. Is this a great story that will be remembered? Not even close, but Tell Me Your Secrets is a more than passable bingewatching candidate.

Feb 25, 2021 | Full Review…

"Tell Me Your Secrets" does a good job of keeping the mystery alive and joining the threads.

Feb 24, 2021 | Full Review…

[Amy] Brenneman is, as always, a powerhouse.

Feb 24, 2021 | Rating: 2.75/5 | Full Review…

Tell Me Your Secrets is packed full of great ideas and storylines, but not enough time to give them the attention they deserve.

Feb 24, 2021 | Full Review…

Tell Me Your Secrets is a bleak show that withholds information in order to ramp up the mystery, but to the detriment of a coherent story.

    Amazing show. I can't imagine the the fact that the critics are so far apart from the audience on this one says more about them than the show. I'm mad that it takes so long for season 2.

    Are the critics nuts? This show is excellent! I was riveted from beginning to end of the season. And I never saw the twists and turns coming. It just kept you guessing! Great acting, great writing. Can't wait for season 2.

    Honestly, each episode has about 5 minutes of decent content that feels like it's part of a story. (So like an hour of actual story in the whole 10 episodes) The other 450 minutes are torture- like the writer just tried to throw everything at a wall to see what might stick. **spoiler alert.... nothing.sticks! It's like 45 plots cobbled together with none having an end. I really wanted to like this but simply couldn't.

    Loved this series I gotta admit I almost gave up after the first 2-3 episodes but then things got really good and only kept going up from there.

    This series is an intense and wonderfully written thriller! It's twists and turns which keep you guessing to the end! Bring a second season please! I really don't understand how people say that they don't like it! A must watch!
