Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for The Bastard Executioner Season 1

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (29)

Thematically, Sutter is back in his wheelhouse, and that's what was likely most appealing to FX, and will be to those who miss Jax Teller and the gang.

Sep 15, 2015 | Full Review…

The Bastard Executioner ultimately feels like an unconvincing bit of expensive dress-up.

Sep 15, 2015 | Full Review…

With visibly second-tier production values, The Bastard Executioner feels a bit more like people playing dress up than the best works in its genre should.

Sep 15, 2015 | Full Review…

I can't see Sagal's story line improving much in the coming weeks, unless she gets a bob, but, with all the good material mixed into this bold series, I'm more than willing to be surprised.

Sep 14, 2015 | Full Review…

Like its nefarious Englishmen, The Bastard Executioner holds a sharp blade to our necks to demand respect. So far, though, it does little else to earn it.

Sep 14, 2015 | Full Review…

It may require some patience to understand where it's going and start heading toward the payoff.

Sep 14, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Bastard Executioner still feels like an inescapable slog in its early going.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

A crude, gory spectacle does not a great series make, and The Bastard Executioner displays all the surface marks of an ambitious period piece or genre epic without any of the core traits.

Aug 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Everything surrounding the colorfully bloody bastard-execution-ing is grungy soap opera.

Sep 15, 2015 | Full Review…

In the cut-throat realm of cable TV, Bastard Executioner would do well to see the sword pointing at its own jugular.
