Critic Reviews for Titanic Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

Stresses class struggle and interpersonal affairs, not big-budget action.

Apr 22, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Characters who barely register at first are fleshed out later, though most remain rather sketchy at best.

Apr 22, 2012 | Full Review…

The more Titanic explores the characters and their relationships - through the flashbacks - the stronger and more compelling the miniseries becomes.

Apr 22, 2012 | Full Review…

Handsome but convoluted, the four-part production certainly explores class distinctions, but juggles too many characters, too awkwardly, to yield much impact.

This whole thing is going down and taking us with it.

Apr 22, 2012 | Full Review…

Steamer trunks, duffel bags and jewel cases are not the only baggage weighing down this RMS Titanic.

Apr 22, 2012 | Full Review…

The mini-series suffers from defensive storytelling; it's a narrative driven in splintered directions less by inspiration than by avoidance.

Apr 22, 2012 | Full Review…

Does a fine job giving viewers a sense of what it was like to be aboard the doomed vessel.
