Treadstone: Season 1 (2019)

Season 1

Critics Consensus

While Treadstone is as action-packed and frenetically paced as you'd expect from the Bourne universe, it lacks the narrative momentum and cohesion necessary to set it apart.

    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

    It’s good – I’d recommend it.

Critic Reviews for Treadstone Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7)

It's like a Jason Bourne movie squared, cubed and extruded every which way as this compelling new series takes Robert Ludlum's Bourne trilogy mythology to places it's never been.

As spy dramas go, this one is better left out in the cold.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

In Treadstone we have more distraction than emotional resonance, sold with the fantasy of precision-driven, expert violence. No doubt, this is a vintage approach. It also feels right for right now.

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Parkouring its way on to screens with far more vim and purpose than one would expect, Treadstone is a scrappy but stimulating surprise and a refreshingly necessary addition to the saga.

Oct 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Spy fun, but don't say the B-word.

Feb 16, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's all a clone of the same idea. [Full Review in Spanish]

Kring still hasn't figured out that momentum isn't the same thing as complexity...

Jan 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

On a technical level, Treadstone has a lot going for it. The action quality is there. The bombastic energy is there. The espionage element is there. But, the show really needs to shed its unwillingness to be a part of the universe audiences know and love.

Oct 31, 2019 | Full Review…

Disappointing action spin-off is violent, has cursing.

Oct 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It is fine for what it is, but nothing about it really justifies it's existence. You won't be bored watching Treadstone but you may not stick with it long enough to get the answers you seek.

Oct 17, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

I don't know how long an action series can keep this up, but the premiere, at least, is intense, mysterious, and oddly electrifying.

Oct 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The biggest positive about Treadstone is that it doesn't play out like a TV show. With the intense fight scenes, exhilarating chase sequences, and everything else, it felt like I was watching a big-budget movie.

Audience Reviews for Treadstone: Season 1

  • Feb 04, 2021
    Treadstone nos mostra que todo o sistema combatido por Jason Bourne nos filmes é na verdade uma fábrica de Frankensteins. É um clima que a série consegue recriar muito bem. Porém, é arrastado e confuso, assim eu resumo esta série derivada da cinessérie Bourne. Porém, tem destaques que prendem a atenção. A parte dos anos 70, com os casal de protagonistas (entre mocinho e antagonistas); e a passagem nos tempos atuais com a assassina coreana. A edição recria bem as cenas de ação dos filmes o que nos trás certa imersão de uma produção notável. Mas o melhor destaque de todos é a reviravolta (aquele "plot twist" surpresa). Bourne sabia se diversificar muito bem nos filmes. Enfim, é uma pena - tirando seus destaques - a série tem trama fraca e apenas repete exaustivamente os trejeitos de cenas de ação já conhecidos nos filmes ("bate, bate, bate e mostra a arma" ou "esbarrão e rouba um celular"). As viagens no tempo, que poderiam melhorar a narrativa, acaba deixando a trama tão confusa que até o próprio corte de edição fica perdido ao avisar pro espectador que a história está se passando em um tempo atual em determinado momento. Treadstone prova, mais uma vez, que sem a genialidade de Matt Damon e Doung Liman no bagulho (e até mesmo a câmera pesada de Paul Greengrass), fica complicado defender os derivados.

    What could have been an absolute blockbuster series was ruined by the constant fragmentation. Very untidy piece of work; bet they would love to remake it. Enjoyable in parts
  • Jan 02, 2021
    Amazing take on the sly world. Extremely well done!!
  • Dec 09, 2020
    Overly violent and telegraphed; cut short just as it was getting good.
  • Nov 29, 2020
    Great action! Wish they hadn't cancelled it so the characters and storyline could have been further developed.
  • Oct 18, 2020
    Disjointed. Action packed. Good for background viewing.
  • Sep 22, 2020
    Although it is a multi-line operation, there is nothing special about it. And I'm bored
  • Jul 15, 2020
    I enjoy it, the plot, the action. deserve a sequel. shame 2nd season canceled.
  • May 20, 2020
    Excellent show. Great pace never a dull moment. One of the best thriller I have seen in a long time . I can't believe there will be no season 2. Big mistake! Must watch.
  • May 15, 2020
    So cliched. Each episode has to have a fight scene; there are motorcycle chases; everyone is an expert fighter. not good
