Critic Reviews for The Innocents Season 1

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (17)

The righteousness of teenage rebellion and joy in sudden freedom are palpable and almost too earnest to bear.

Top Critic

The handful of flashbacks that exist serve only to advance the story, not to deepen what viewers know about who these characters are.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Like so much YA fiction, everything here is over-directed and over-written, allowing no room for the teen audience to interpret any deeper meaning.

Aug 22, 2018 | Full Review…

As with many a horror heroine, June must navigate her desires, newfound power and personal relationships and make it out alive. All the while, we're left holding out for the happy ending we've come to expect from teenage romance.

Dec 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Unless you're happy just to wallow in yearning, the show's failure to go any deeper makes it a po-faced slog. It is less Let the Right One In and more Twilight.

I enjoyed The Innocents for what it was and that is better than I expected from it. The story is fairly easy to follow and the stakes do earn some investment if you watch the whole series.

Dec 14, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The series can be heavy-handed at times, but you'll find yourself wanting to unravel the mystery and see how everything fits together.

Dec 14, 2018 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

I say drill through the opening episodes. Do that and you'll be prepped for when The Innocents returns and takes off the training wheels and the kid gloves - because that'll be where things get really interesting.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

If The Innocents does get renewed for a second season, I hope they decide to pick up the pace of the story.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The episode manages to set up enough of a mood that it masks some of the more ridiculous moments of the episode, and leaves us wanting more of this slow-burn supernatural love story.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The Innocents rewards loyalty. The early pains it takes to set scenes and establish character, to drip-feed plot elements and pique curiosity all pay off by the finale.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The Innocents is a beautiful show. The visuals alone make it appealing, but the great acting and storyline is something different that we haven't really seen before or at least in while.

    Very good series. Kept us glued to the end. We hope for series 2. Best new Netflix series in a long time

    When teenagers Harry and June run away from their repressive families to be together, they're derailed by an extraordinary discovery - June's ability to shape-shift. A scientist tries to capture her and discover the key to her power. I say drill through the opening episodes because that'll be where things get really interesting. Drama, Horror, Mystery get very compelling as this excellent story and concept progress. I enjoyed The Innocents for what it was. The series can be heavy-handed at times,which is a good thing. It is a creative and intriguing premise. You'll find yourself wanting to unravel the mystery and see how everything fits together.

    Por muito mais que eu ame a história, a maneira como ela foi criada é muito superficial. Nenhuma mensagem profunda foi transmitida e tudo parece despretensioso. Continuei a ver a série para ver se melhorava, mas isso não aconteceu. A única coisa que eu admiro bastante em "The Innocents" é a fotografia, as paisagens que são exibidas e as músicas que se ouvem nos episódios.
