Critic Reviews for Ten Days in the Valley Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12)

There's a sense of withholding information that feels like the show taking the audience hostage, too. Even so, it might not have been a problem with a little more focus to the plan.

Compelling character study/suspenser from creator Tassie Cameron.

It's well-made enough that I could see anyone who got into stuff like Secrets & Lies engaging with it. And Sedgwick is always solid.

Ten Days in the Valley treads over quite a bit of familiar territory.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

I didn't understand the point. Not to say that I don't think that they'll get there, but the very first episode I just didn't understand why I was watching. Why does the audience care?

You don't need to have everyone hiding a secret to make a compelling show, the ten days this show will cover may not be enough to service all these stories.

Dec 20, 2017 | Full Review…

This wants to be Serious Drama; it's more like Bad Soap Opera.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Compelling mystery show has drugs, innuendo, mature themes.

Oct 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Ten Days seems familiar but intense.

Oct 2, 2017 | Full Review…

The estimable Kyra Sedgwick stars in this intriguing but initially frustrating abduction-mystery series.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Fortunately for us all, Jane is portrayed by Kyra Sedgwick, whose performance here is nothing less than masterful.

The harder it tries to come off as serious and deep, the more this derivative drama is infused with an air of faintly ridiculous overreach. It's a mess.

Audience Reviews for Ten Days in the Valley: Season 1

  • Dec 12, 2018
    I watch plenty of dark and gritty shows with flawed main characters but I couldn't get into this show at all because I felt no empathy for the main character; the mother played by Kyra Sedgewick. And it just felt too forced trying to humanise the other characters so that the audience would connect in some way; the sister having fertility treatment, the assistant who's sneaking around with the ex but feels bad about it. I just didn't care.

    Ten Days in the Valley felt like Ten YEARS in the Valley. They could have fit this story into a two-hour movie (made for Lifetime movie). What a waste of Kyra Sedgwick.
  • Jan 07, 2018
    My husband and I really liked this series. It is on the edge suspenseful and it's a tremendous cast all the way around.
  • Jan 07, 2018
    Story of a horrible mother and lazy show runner/producer who's daughter is kidnapped while she's getting coked up. Tons of implausible conspiracies and title character thinks she's edgy because she's in her 50s and wears "Chucks".

    Waiting for next season
  • Jan 06, 2018
    Hope for second season, love Kyra

    I like Kyra Sedrick and most of the actors/actresses but the show is so slow!
  • Oct 23, 2017
    Solid show with great acting, you definitely have to stick it out until episode 4 where it really picks up with an intense turn of events.
  • Oct 23, 2017
    I love Keira; however, I am so disappointed in this TV series; perhaps, a subsequent project will be far better.
