Critic Reviews for The Nine Lives of Chloe King Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

Heeding one of the elementary vampire show lessons, "Chloe King" sets all this against a backdrop of clever teenage banter and the awesomeness of teenage romance.

Jun 13, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It is a show about a high-school superheroine-a Catwoman without the camp or the S&M gear-and it enables longtime fans of the subgenre to watch with pride as their children digest its venerable tropes for only the fourth or fifth time.

Jul 7, 2011 | Full Review…

The pilot hour delivers details thick and deep, and effectively, but it's hard to tell exactly what Chloe and her in-on-the-secret teen cohorts will then be left doing week to week.

Jun 10, 2011 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

I'll freely admit I'm not the target audience for The Nine Lives Of Chloe King, but for what this is, it's a pretty fun show, and I think people who dig this sort of thing will find a lot to like in it.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

And in "The Nine Lives of Chloe King," ABC Family gets to showcase Skyler Samuels in what feels like a potential breakout role.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite only marginal spring in the exposition-heavy pilot, the promised mix of action, angst and serialized mystery should make for a purr-fect little summer escape.

Jun 15, 2011 | Full Review…

Regardless of that one flaw, I think that The Nine Lives of Chloe King is really starting to gain momentum and grow as a series.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

The plot is pretty predictable, but it's semi-enjoyable. I had some fun watching it.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

The claws are coming out as Chloe King continues to discover who she is and what she can do, which should make The Nine Lives of Chloe King fine summer fun as the series progresses.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

The juxtaposition from the opening to the closing scene was a total surprise. I can only hope that we are given an opportunity to see the wrongs from the finale righted at the start of a second season.

Nov 15, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Add to that some good vibes about finding strength in the qualities that make you different, and you've got a well-rounded show that's lots of fun for parents and teens to enjoy together.

Nov 15, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ultimately Chloe King reveals a mysterious, conspiracy-filled mythology that's also similar to Kyle XY and was always the least enjoyable part of that show. Chloe King is not awful but it feels completely unnecessary.

Audience Reviews for The Nine Lives of Chloe King: Season 1

  • Sep 04, 2015
    A terribly cliched teen supernatural drama with all the oldest jokes in the history book and a really badly written script. It had a nice premise but all the characters were unlikeable and the plot was ridiculous. It was good that this show was cancelled.

    The ending is kinda like Twin Peaks and The Gates.
