Critics Consensus

The Secret She Keeps may not be the most substantial snack, but delicious performances and a seemingly endless series of ridiculous twists make for great binging.

Critic Reviews for The Secrets She Keeps Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

A very watchable, albeit slightly shallow, exploration of how femininity and motherhood intertwine and toxify.

Apr 19, 2021 | Full Review…

Without performances as layered and emotionally sound as the ones Carmichael and De Gouw give, The Secrets She Keeps would be little more than the aforementioned pulpy ride. It's still pretty cockamamie, but in a way that is also fully believable.

Apr 19, 2021 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…

The pulpy elements are precision-engineered to keep you glued. But what really makes the miniseries gripping is Laura Carmichael as the unsettlingly morose Agatha.

Apr 14, 2021 | Full Review…

The first-rate Ms. De Gouw is overshadowed by Ms. Carmichael, who not only has the meatier and more complicated performance to deliver but is far better known, at least in the U.S.

Jul 15, 2020 | Full Review…

This is a world of two-dimensional women, one-dimensional men and nail-hammering expositional dialogue. It is a drama in which you see the plot twists coming a country mile off as if signposted by a giant foam finger.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The bedrock of the show is credible, serious drama, though this is undercut from time to time by pulpy genre elements more befitting old-school Ozploitation thrillers - such as 1979's Snapshot.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Half your work is done and you are free to kick back and enjoy the non-plot elements, which range from Meghan's homewares to the two fine central performances.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The leads bring more than enough credibility to their roles to make the series worth watching.

Apr 20, 2021 | Full Review…

Laura Carmichael goes solidly against the image of Downton Abbey's Lady Edith in [The Secrets She Keeps].

Jul 20, 2020 | Full Review…

The whole thing is held together by Laura Carmichael as Aggie, a compulsive liar played at the screeching end of camp, complete with weird, limp hair and beaky fury.

Jul 20, 2020 | Full Review…

With top-quality new television drama at a premium, this is pulpy filler at best.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The suggested mysteries that are beneath the surface... are maintained in great part because of the performances of the protagonists. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for The Secrets She Keeps: Season 1

  • Dec 14, 2020
    Predictable and drawn out.
  • Jun 08, 2020
    There are some TV shows that are so bad, they're good. This is not one of them. For a premise with this much potential, the dialogue is so incredibly forced and poorly delivered that it leaves a lot to be desired. I wanted to have sympathy for the characters, but instead I experienced second-hand embarrassment at all of the choices made by both the cast and creatives. This is a mediocre student film at best, or a train wreck of a season at worst.
