Season 1
The Purge

Critics Consensus

Bloated and boring, The Purge kills its own fleetingly fun premise and proves that not all stories work better on the small screen.

Audience Reviews for The Purge: Season 1

  • Sep 03, 2021
    How you can take a film ripe for exploration of the world it exists in, just waiting to have its nuances explored and depicted and instead deliver yet another braindead wokefest that allows me to guess the exact plot because every character's race and gender were determine the screen play. Boring, boring, boring. What a waste of potential.
  • Aug 11, 2021
    Although they get to find new situations in the particular universe of The Purge without showing that the bag of tricks is empty, elongating the story does not keep the tension, which also fits better in the timing (and probably in the format) of a single movie.
  • Jan 03, 2021
    bloated and passed the time. some scenes felt dragged out .
  • Dec 30, 2020
    Trash. Fell asleep watching it
  • Dec 06, 2020
    the thing i liked most about this show was completely different storyline then what you usually get + amazing casting
  • Oct 26, 2020
    Some dumb scenes and a really pointless death, but otherwise a unique watch. 8/10 considering it's a lower budget and smaller show.
  • Oct 25, 2020
    Love the movie franchise...was worried that a tv show would ruin it....but it only improved upon it!
  • Oct 19, 2020
    I enjoyed season 1. It didn't say a thing new about The Purge that anyone who hasn't watched the movies didn't already know. It involves a select group of people but it also has short opening stories that show how normalized violence has become. But what makes it better than movies was that it was detailed. Low reviews for season 1 are wrong. Was the season perfect? No. It had its problems but it didn't deserved so much negativity. Only giving negative reviews because show had same story as the movie is wrong. Overall, I would recommend anyone to watch this series instead of Purge movie series as this is more detailed.
  • Oct 16, 2020
    Not just bloated and boring. Also low quality filming and acting.
  • Jun 06, 2020
    While the Purge finds itself lacking interesting characters as well as a muddy setup, it delivers the guilty action fun that viewers are looking for.
