Critic Reviews for The Bastard Executioner: Season 1

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (28)

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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