November 6, 2018
For young Elisha Henig's acting chops, no praise is high enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 20, 2018
At least we got to watch husband and wife Tracy Letts and Carrie Coon balance each other as complementary characters.
September 10, 2018
Focusing on a different crime, The Sinner ventures out of the source book and into original storytelling territory. Oh, and Carrie Coon stars.
August 24, 2018
The Sinner is a throwback to classic mystery television, but with the kind of craft now common in this age of peak TV. It drips with atmosphere, strong performances, and a plot that confuses us in a good way.
August 17, 2018
It's a middling, dour season of television without an ounce of humor or pathos, a fairly straightforward procedural thriller without much in the way of thrills.
August 15, 2018
Unsettling and familiar.
August 6, 2018
Skeletons from Harry's past further rattle his composure in an atmospheric tale that might be just the thing for those who find HBO's similarly unnerving Sharp Objects too pokey.
August 6, 2018
The bottom line for fans of immersive, well-paced crime stories regarding The Sinner should not be a question of "why?" but rather, "when do I tune in?"

August 6, 2018
The USA thrill ride is just as addictive as it was last year.
August 6, 2018
The Sinner is a hell of a lot of fun, and it anchors its sensationalist material with grounded performances and dispassionate camerawork.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
August 6, 2018
In essence, making the motive the mystery, as opposed to the identity of the killer, represents the smallest of twists, but works plenty well if it's executed properly.
August 2, 2018
There is one thing this season has going for it and that's the cast. Carrie Coon? You can't go wrong with her.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 2, 2018
Though it never strays too far from being a gritty police procedural, the manner in which The Sinner lays out its storytelling cards and obfuscates others makes it an engaging watch.
August 2, 2018
The Sinner is not a happy show, but it's an extremely good one.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.3/10
August 1, 2018
"The Sinner is the Los Angeles Lakers and Carrie Coon is LeBron James."
Full Review | Original Score: 70/100
August 1, 2018
That's what this season of The Sinner is: an intelligent August thriller that'll hook you in so firmly, it'd be impossible to disengage from its grasp, even if Carrie Coon were not involved.
August 1, 2018
Drama fans, especially those who love a good murder mystery, would be well advised to give The Sinner Season 2 a chance.
August 1, 2018
Season 2 continues to pull viewers in with a carefully curated balance of talent and story.
August 1, 2018
Coon is perfectly enigmatic, not quite the season's villain and yet utterly unsettling whether evincing chilly, clipped leadership or in her few moments of emotional release.
July 31, 2018
The show contains echoes of True Detective, Sharp Objects, and Twin Peaks, which all meld together to form something true to life.
