Critics Consensus

Tiny Pretty Things has some solid moves, but an over-reliance on empty scandal over emotional substance make for unsatisfying viewing.

Critic Reviews for Tiny Pretty Things Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

It's consistently inconsistent, purposely tacky and piles cliché upon cliché. It is trash TV.

Dec 14, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

I feel like I might both love and hate Tiny Pretty Things, which makes me feel a lot like its characters, who destroy their best friends one minute and then hold them close the next.

Jan 11, 2021 | Full Review…

It was refreshing to see a media depiction of eating disorders that didn't center a white woman; this series focuses on the struggles of a male dancer.

Dec 28, 2020 | Full Review…

You have to either give credit to actors who can dance like this or dancers who can act like this.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The show is quite content with exploring the surface-level issue without breaking down the motivations of why it's happening or others' reactions. This lack didn't do the characters or plots any justice.

Dec 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.4/5 | Full Review…

It's pretty bad, but the series is made even worse by the fact that it doesn't bother to analyze exactly what's wrong with such behavior and offers no scathing commentary or criticism of its characters' actions.

Watching [Kylie Jefferson] rehearse, dance, dream, fly is a delight. [Full review in Spanish]

Dec 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Is this show about dancing or sex? It was hard for me to tell.

Dec 22, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Tiny Pretty Things was built to be binged.

Dec 22, 2020 | Full Review…

It has a lot to say about the world at large and it does it without being preachy. The students at this school are human beings and they are full and fleshed out.

Dec 18, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the intriguing mystery is put on the back burner to focus on less important plot points.

Dec 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Book-based dance drama has sex, violence, bullying.

Audience Reviews for Tiny Pretty Things: Season 1

    I enjoyed the dancing. It was great. The writing and most of the acting with a very few exceptions, (June, Shane, Bette, Madame) were horrible. Most of the dialogue was clunky and stupid. There were too many plot twists and the "evil" people were stereotypes. But, really, I just did not care about any of the characters except for June and Shane.

    It's about sex and power and unbelievable predictable. A older man that uses his power to pray on young girls and young women that use their body to get what they want. It's misogyny and sex. It has nothing to do with the depth of people, it's as shallow as can be.
  • Feb 01, 2021
    I tried with this one. The only saving grace for this show is the opening montage of dance and movement. This show has ZERO likeable characters. Actually no, that's not true, Neveah's mother was the only likeable character. The plot sometimes makes no sense, or is rushed, there is little room for character development. The dialog is bad, like cheese factor over dramatic bad. You want to like these characters, but you just cannot. The show does not allow you to. There is drama over nothing, characters changing personality mid episode, and the sex, which there is plenty enough, is done in a boring sterile way. Neveah is the lead, I guess, and you wanna like her but, she is just a trope, angry black girl from the hood moving on up, with no redeemable qualities. One of the most horrible characters, Ramon, is one of the best. This show should be pushed off the building, and taken off life support. There is no need to inflict the world with another season, until it is recast, retooled, another writer, another director. This show is not Thirteen Reasons Why and should not try to be.

    I feel much dumber having watched this train wreck of a show. 10 hours of my life I will never get back. I have difficulty finding anything positive to say about it. The acting, script, even the dance was beyond awful.
  • Jan 31, 2021
    A trashy, juicy melodrama that was built to be binged, and then forgotten. Come for the pretty cast and dancing and don't carry any expectations for plot or acting quality.
  • Jan 27, 2021
    Before I started watching, I was really excited about this show. I mean, great dancing and drama in one? Sign me in! Except the dancing wasn't that great, and the drama was boiling down on cliché after cliché. The dialogues felt forced, the acting was mediocre at best, the different plot lines felt rushed and under developed, and.. meh. It was great that it focused on an eating disorder from a male perspective, which is something that it's never depicted on TV, but even that plot line needed to be better developed. I think the show had potential, but it fell short in the end.
  • Jan 26, 2021
    I loved this show and I really hope they make another season! They dancing was amazing and so was the music.
  • Jan 15, 2021
    Amazing, binged it in 2 days!
  • Jan 12, 2021
    A show that fully commits to the dramatic. Sometimes you don't want to think too hard about the twists and turns, but that doesn't take away from the enjoyment. Plus, the dance scenes are killer.
  • Jan 11, 2021
    I really enjoyed the show. There are so many talented individuals that starred in and choreographed this show that I couldn't stop watching.
