Critic Reviews for The Girlfriend Experience Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (21)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Apr 11, 2016 | Full Review…

It's a well-acted, well-written, and remarkably well-directed series that avoids falling into problematic elements that could befall any series treading in such risqué waters.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The Girlfriend Experience is sometimes uncomfortable to watch, other times it stops in its tracks; then he throws himself into an unexpected place. But everything fits and, above all, attracts. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The Girlfriend Experience shows how two formats on an accelerating collision course can merge successfully.

Aug 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The show moves in such a rapid-fire manner that it doesn't suggest passing judgment on any character's actions. It merely points the camera at them and shoots, catching them in whatever acts they choose to engage.
