Critic Reviews for The Path Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (24)

Overall, it's not a bad beginning to a series intent on exploring human suffering and the lengths people will go to in order to stop hurting.

Whatever its destiny, this welcome addition to Hulu's stable of original programming is a uniquely engrossing family drama, as distinguished by strong character-driven writing and a talented ensemble cast.

The Path has many things working in its favor, not least of all the way it takes a leap into big questions of faith.

Dark and fascinating.

Katims and his protégé Goldberg know better than anyone that TV takes time, and they'll get it here. The Path could, and possibly will, improve.

The Path is not a rollicking Scientology takedown but a more measured, slow-building dismantling of the insidious accommodations required to maintain absolute religious certainty.

Top Critic

The Path's twisting and emotionally jarring story of a cult-ish communal following stands up to the best that any networks or other streaming services have to offer.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Cult and religion, and the difference between the two - assuming there is a real difference between the two - is the backbone of The Path, a smart, haunting new series that premieres on Hulu today.

Aug 28, 2017 | Full Review…

Scientology, and any "coincidental resemblances to it," may pique viewers' interest, but The Path doesn't need it to sustain a tense, layered drama.

Aug 10, 2017 | Full Review…

The true test of any high-concept show is how readily the viewer buys in to its internal logic, how quickly that ideology becomes just a channel for rewarding character study. The Path achieves this almost from the outset.
