The Enemy Within: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: Despite a set of stellar performances led by the capable Jennifer Carpenter, The Enemy Within stumbles into an overly formulaic narrative that fails to produce any real spark.

Critic Reviews for The Enemy Within Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

Carpenter and Chestnut solidly play their roles, but Enemy Within doesn't crackle the way The Blacklist did in early episodes. There's nothing particularly special going on here, and it's hard to muster the enthusiasm to say much more than that.

A generic FBI show, with a generic title, that had the good sense to cast Jennifer Carpenter as a helpful traitor.

Cliched crime thriller has some gore, great actors.

No charm. No camaraderie or sexual tension. It's just familiar faces regurgitating dry, boring dialogue, as though reading from cue cards.

Just go back and watch The Blacklist from the beginning. You'll be watching a much more entertaining show.

Familiarity can be fun, I don't dispute this. But life is far too short-and the TV landscape far too crowded-to play spy games I've already played dozens of times before.

Grading on that curve, "The Enemy Within" doesn't bring much new to the party but offers enough polish on this earnestly played, tried-and-true formula so as not to be, unlike some of these shows, its own worst enemy.

It isn't the worst in the network's line of dramas featuring generic intelligence operatives forced to team up with morally and ethically compromised partners best kept in containment.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

NBC's midseason drama created by Ken Woodruff (The Mentalist) is elevated from the cop drama norm by the lead performance of Jennifer Carpenter .

Feb 25, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The Enemy Within is a predictably thin and hyped-up network concoction.
