The Path: Season 1 Reviews

May 15, 2019
The heady brew of eroticism and surreal mysticism can be seductive, but the show's unsteady tone makes it hard to want to swallow the Kool-Aid.

The Path mostly is notable for Aaron Paul giving his all in the service of a role that finds him on familiar shaky ground in a series with too many ruts.

It's frustrating when a series hitches its drama to a lack of communication as its primary conceit because the solution seems so simple.

Even in that less-than-gripping first hour, Eddie and Sarah's story line is the least engrossing, in large part because the talented Paul and Monaghan are asked to play circumstances, not characters.

The Path is definitely a show that exists. That is a fact. You won't be questioning its existence the way I was left questioning why anyone would want to join the Meyerist movement after watching the first two episodes of Hulu's newest original drama.

I'm sure there are going to be many converts to The Path, but it left me an agnostic.

Worse yet for the show's dramatic purposes, the belief system they're battling over is so indistinct that it barely exists.

The execution, while offering glimpses into a fascinating subculture, is sluggish and unfocused. The Path is literally cult TV, but no cult classic.
March 29, 2016
It's a dry, claustrophobic show, with not enough of a narrative hook to pull the viewer through hour after hour of it.

The Path fails to provide insight into the fight between faith and personal desire.

The drama's overly deliberate pace and under-cooked character dynamics may cause some to lose faith before the season finale arrives.
