Critic Reviews for Texas Rising Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (9)

I know the miniseries is set in the 1830s, but aren't we at the point now, in the 2010s, when we no longer want to see history reduced to offensive stereotypes and simplistic good versus bad morality?

Texas Rising isn't very rich fare, but there's a lot of it.

Some of the dialogue, whether mouthed by actual or made-up characters, is a seemingly unintended hoot 'n' a holler.

Texas Rising offers a multistory sprawl, with perhaps a few moments of entertainment, but more often with stilted dialogue, and it is undecided, or worse, defensive, about the history.

History Channel has made some ratings fictionalizing history, so here is more: a long, languishing 10-hour, five part miniseries, Texas Rising about the battles following the Alamo

In the end, this messy Texas tale will likely prompt viewers to forget about watching long before the Alamo is avenged.

"Follow me a little longer along this bloody, twisted road," says Sam Houston at the end of the second night. You could hear that as a plea directed at viewers. I'm not sure it's gonna work, Sam.

It is perhaps to North & South what The Vikings is to Game of Thrones, not dissimilar, but starker, simpler and perhaps a little more instinctively brutal.

Oct 4, 2016 | Full Review…

The cardinal sin of Texas Rising is that it is just dreadfully boring. There is a whole lot of talking but next to no doing. A handful of conflicts are over too soon and too small in scope for an epic production such as this.

[The cast] may not be enough to raise the entirety of Texas, but they along with rich historical details that go well beyond the usual Alamo myths make the series worth watching.
