Critic Reviews for The Girlfriend Experience: Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (19)

This is a character study and the lead doesn't have to be beautifully flawed in order to get in over her head.

It's more than on-screen sex that makes this TV's most adult show.

The Girlfriend Experience is the perfect show to binge because it's a bit like a mosaic - each episode has these rewarding little moments but they're not self-contained, it's only when it starts to piece together does it tell an enriching story.

Into this minefield saunters Starz's fascinating The Girlfriend Experience, which is not merely in conversation with questions of the male gaze, female autonomy, titillation, sex, and violence but quite literally about them.

The Girlfriend Experience refuses to judge Christine, and thus defies you to judge its central thesis. It's an extremely cynical outlook -- the idea that every relationship... resembles a transaction. But on our most cynical days, doesn't that feel true.

In its own muted way, The Girlfriend Experience won me over. The show is a canny look at business and capitalism.
