Critic Reviews for The Red Tent Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (9)

If it could be judged merely on the merits of its aspirations, The Red Tent would get two "you-go-girl!" snaps up. Unfortunately, how the miniseries turns those aspirations into drama leaves much to be desired over its four hours.

There's nothing like a sprinkle of soap to humanize an epic built on characters from the Bible.

Stick through the uneven first half of The Red Tent and you will be rewarded with a livelier conclusion that channels vintage miniseries in the best way: It's epic!

If you're looking for a soapy, fast-paced saga with a strong female lead, feel free to step into The Red Tent. If you're looking for a sermon, get thee to a church.

The up-with-women message feels both dated and too touchy-feely. Although the cast and the production quality are good, the revised story simply isn't as interesting as the original author's version.

Easy to get caught up in. The beautiful cinematography makes tent life in a desert look appealing, and it is easy to feel a connection with the characters through the excellent acting.

The Red Tent is an enjoyable tale of one woman's survival.

It's not of that [Game of Thrones] ilk and ultimately dreary, even for feminists who reveled in the book.

This eventful story craftily weaves schmaltz and sin, like Scandal with sandals, in a formula that has worked for centuries.

Dec 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Literary in tone and shot with considerable scope in Morocco, the first half of this four-hour miniseries proves stronger than the second, but by then viewers should be firmly invested in the story.
