Critic Reviews for Tidelands Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

For all of its unnecessary violence and bizarrely place nudity, Tidelands is strangely boring. It has no verve, not even a crazy, ridiculous one - at least that would have been entertaining.

Once you realize what you're meant to be taking from Tidelands... you realise this show is a f---ing GIFT.

Supernatural soap opera is sexual, violent -- and boring.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Finally, a supernatural guilty pleasure show that is not about vampires. Tidelands isn't perfect, but the characters and plot make for a fun ride.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Tidelands is trash TV, but it's the type of entertaining trash that's sure to find an audience who will love it for exactly what it is.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Best and Pataky are perfect in their roles, holding up their respective poles of the circus tent with great aplomb and demonstrating a remarkable ability to keep a straight face.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

When the shows works its atmosphere is heavy and drips with dark beauty. When it doesn't, which is a lot of the time, it feels cold and muscle-bound, pumped up in the wrong places.

Dec 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Its parts are more than their sum; you are better off living in its moments than thinking about what any of it means.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a little weird, it's a little sexy, and it's a little violent. But the presence of Charlotte Best is the main reason why Tidelands is a compelling watch.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This is popcorn entertainment through and through... Still, the show is competent enough, as both a crime drama and a CW-level supernatural story to warrant a watch.

    I had a bit of a slow start getting into "Tidelands" on episode 1 but by episode 2 I was hooked. I rarely binge and this series is my exception apparently. I love it and I'm eager for info on if and when they'll be a season 2! There has to be!! Love the storyline development!

    I thought that this show showed a new perspective on merfolklore. While have the perfect amount of mystery, crime, grit , and romance. I hope netflix releases a season 2.

    I pray to god that they come out with a second season. I LOVE this show!

    The story gets more compelling with every episode and despite oddly prudish reviews complaining about nudity and sex, it's a very female-centered, empowered show in which the poor men can't keep up with either the quasi-supernatural women or the tough locals.

    Lo mejor que ha sacado Netflix para mí.
  • Feb 09, 2019
    Heard about this show recently and finished it in a couple of days so I guess you could say I’m obsessed and can’t wait for a season 2!
  • Feb 08, 2019
    É boa, ela começa de uma forma entediante, mas ela consegue melhorar é fica cada vez melhor. Mas podemos colocar alguns porém como, violência em excesso é nudez. Mas mesmo assim, a série se mantém com uma ótima qualidade

    If I love this series can't wait for season 2
