Season 1
The Bastard Executioner

Critics Consensus

Kurt Sutter's The Bastard Executioner doesn't want for dark thrills, but it unfortunately has more enthusiasm for brutality and gore than necessary narrative focus.

Audience Reviews for The Bastard Executioner: Season 1

  • Jun 01, 2020
    It'brutal, there are a lot, but a lot of hystorical failure with the cloth, the jewels, the cutlerys, ustensils. And I don't really understand what the show is about...What kind of story the showrunner wants the audience to understand and to show. Sade, because it could have been very interesting to learn more about this periode of time which was dark and very brutal. In the darkest time you can finf some light and even glamour. See the "Witcher"....

    Historical, amazing cast, just awesome & right up my alley. If you like the Vikings, The Last Kingdom, check this out! Written by Son's of Anarchy's Kurt Sutter, stars Katy Segal!

    I loved Sons, I am a Kurt Sutter fan but this was just a waste of time and space. The show had a lot of potential and the actors were great working with what they were given. Too much Kurt and the unnecessary role he made for his wife. Utterly ridiculous! What a disappointment!

    It's a little hard to understand some of the characters because of the accent but I LOVE this show! I think the brutality and gore is something of that time period and should be kept. It's no more brutal than things that happen in today's world. The only thing I don't like is Katey Sagal's part. She's just not good at it.

    What a shame this show was cancelled as the cast was excellent apart from the wooden Edwin. The pilot although not great did show promise and the remaining episodes were worth watching only being spoilt by the B&W fade outs. Lee Jones was a triumphant as the lead and should go on and do more.A real shame that poor ratings ruined another potentially good show

    Loved it! I couldn't stop watching. I am bummed that there will be no 2nd season.
  • Aug 02, 2016
    Very underrated medieval epic, full of bloody battles and torture scenes.
  • Jul 22, 2016
