Critic Reviews for The Crossing Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (10)

The Crossing has just enough going for it to invite a second look.

Apr 2, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Decent pilot that promises a decent series - just not a particularly novel one.

Apr 2, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A series so well cast and so skilfully written that it's hard to imagine that the American ABC network cancelled it after this single season.

May 23, 2019 | Full Review…

A supernatural story that's mercifully free of superheroes. An environmental and humanist warning. Evil aliens among us. Small-town cops vs. the FBI. It's all deliciously promising.

Apr 3, 2018 | Full Review…

If you're familiar with... most genre series that have debuted in the way of Lost, you also know that it's best not to overthink this noise, because the show probably isn't going to be with us for long. Which is too bad, given that it stars Steve Zahn.

Apr 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The Crossing has a European feel and a more deliberate pace to match. That's a good thing, but without other episodes, it's not easy to assess the real potential of The Crossing. Fingers crossed on this one.

Apr 2, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The Crossing succumbs to all cliches. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

As it is The Crossing pilot is pretty boring. Not even the big mystery it spends so much time on is compelling enough to keep you watching.

May 7, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Crackling mystery series a great choice for tweens and up.

Apr 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If The Crossing has too much ambiguity to be an effective political polemic, it's perhaps a bit overstuffed to make good television.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

The Crossing is another big mystery show that fails at that central idea.

Apr 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Even though the premise of The Crossing seems like it's another TV show that should really be a movie or limited series and not an ongoing drama, the pilot offers some decent twists, welcome casting against type and a somewhat intriguing plot.

    Really well done, a story seen by a different lens than usual. Definitely would like to see the sequel

    This show was great. Moved at a good place and liked the story line. What a shame it got cancelled. Beats a lot of other crap out there.
  • Dec 12, 2018
    I was devo'd this was cancelled after 1 season. Even though it kind of reminded me of a show I watched previously - Refugees - The Crossing took a similar story to a slightly different place and by adding humour to the script it made it next level. Casting was excellent too.
