Critic Reviews for The Quad Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

Soapy drama shows all sides of the black college experience.

The Quad does a good job of toggling back and forth between the grown-up tensions within the school faculty, and the escapades of the student body

To Wertmüller, silly gender terrorist, I say basta. To the Quad, I say welcome back - and more, please.

Despite its shortcomings, The Quad has enough quirks and personality to be somewhat addictive to those who like these workplace-dramas.

We'll have to wait and see how Ms. Henderson and her fellow producers develop the potentially entertaining and provocative situations they've set up. In the meantime, it should be fun to watch Ms. Rose.

Realistic it's not, though it's most certainly compelling (and sometimes more) thanks to a game cast and some propulsive, pointed storytelling.

Feb 1, 2017 | Full Review…

While it never reaches the addictively bonkers heights of Scandal or How to Get Away With Murder, The Quad is an entertaining guilty pleasure that offers fleeting bursts of social relevance. It's Shonda Lite, not Shondaland.

Audience Reviews for The Quad: Season 1

    One of the best show I’ve seen in a very long time. It should have way more than 42%. I mean I would think so???????

    the worst representation of an HBCU. the unwary would believe this is what happens at an HBCU and hidden messages are used alot to change a culture in a negative way

    This is a deplorable excuse for television show. The characters were caricatures, stereotypes, and/or dull. It's like the started with one show, watched Empire, and then decided to make it an HBCU of the Fox hit. The writing was stiff and unengaging. The storylines failed to capture my interest and make me want to tune in and watch to see what will happen later. This is a major fail for the "new BET" and will go down as utterly forgettable in television history, particularly black television history. Save your mind and sensibilities and find something more engaging to watch during this hour.

    Fantastic show, no wonder The New York Times named it one of 15 must-see series for 2017! Hugely entertaining, great performances and sharp writing that delivers thrill-a-minute plot turns and twists to keep you on the edge of your seat ... while dealing head-on with some of today's hottest social topics! A hit!
