Critic Reviews for The Sister Series 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (13)

Sometimes there's nothing more enjoyable than watching a TV character's world fall completely apart, episode by episode, slowly and surely.

Jan 21, 2021 | Full Review…

The Sister starts with an intriguing premise, but if it's not spinning its wheels, it's digging into its own grave with unrealistic choices, twists, and a frustrating flashback structure.

Jan 21, 2021 | Full Review…

The Sister is far from a masterpiece, but never dumb... It's taut and gripping enough to beguile you for four hours of chilling fun.

Feb 5, 2021 | Full Review…

As the catalyst of drama, Bob is a clever invention, and a frightening one. And he helps carry The Sister -- an imperfect but pleasantly unnerving piece of work -- over the line into worthwhile.

Jan 22, 2021 | Full Review…

Uneven thriller has drugs, drinking, smoking, sex, murder.

Feb 18, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If you are looking for a slow burn series that transforms into a blazing fire full of drama and edge-of-your-seat suspense, then this is the show for you.

Feb 16, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I just wish this did more carve out its own identity, so it didn't just feel like another ephemeral show filling space a streamer's roster.

Feb 4, 2021 | Full Review…

For the most part, these first two episodes work fairly well if you're willing to accept that this is a world that has a different relationship with logic than we do.

Jan 27, 2021 | Rating: 3.25/5 | Full Review…

Far from being a ghost story, there's an ominousness to what's being told that helps lean further into the show's psychological state, elevating the material in the process.

Jan 26, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

We're giving The Sister a recommendation because we trust Neil Cross knows how to tease out the truth of the story without annoying viewers.

Jan 22, 2021 | Full Review…

The Sister certainly does the part in offering a compelling psychological thriller. Though I think it would have fared better as a film, allowing some of the unnecessary filler to be removed.

Jan 22, 2021 | Full Review…

The Sister makes good use of every moment. The mystery is engaging enough from the get-go, crafting a whodunit plot that becomes more disturbing and devastating as it unravels.

    A hauntingly good show. Russell Tovey puts in a great performance.

    Main characters. The couple. He's absolutely terrible. She's just ok. The casting director should be schooled. I mean scolded. Bob even was pathetically overly unnecessarily creepy. Not Good.
