Treadstone: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
Treadstone

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.

Critic Reviews for Treadstone Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6)

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

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Treadstone proceeds a little too slowly in terms of connecting the dots, but the show doesn't scrimp on action, and those who enjoyed the movies should find tantalizing threads in this expansion of the narrative.

Top Critic

While lots of action films require the audience to suspend disbelief at times, Treadstone requires them to saw the tops of their own heads off and remove the gooey blob inside. It's the only way you'll survive the writing.

Oct 15, 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.

Top Critic

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…

While the action in Treadstone is great, there just isn't enough plot to make a satisfying watch.

Oct 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Disappointing action spin-off is violent, has cursing.

Oct 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | 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.

Oct 16, 2019 | Rating: 4.0/5.0 | 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…

There's really only one thing you need to know about the new USA series Treadstone: the fight scenes are incredibly dope.

Oct 15, 2019 | 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…

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.

Audience Reviews for Treadstone: Season 1

    I love this show. It is taking me on a journey that is very interesting. The more I watch the more I want to see. I am surprised that someone didn't do this sooner. I love that it is happening all over the world and in different decades.

    Awesome show, highly recommend to anyone who lied the films
  • Nov 10, 2019
    First episode was good last two are too much to understand who is who and what is going on and then having two different timelines. Couldn't stay awake as well as they are not catching my attention. I love the Bourne movies this is meh.
  • Nov 09, 2019
    The show is confusing . All the characters blend in. It lacks clear writing. I wanted to like this so much but it was just awful.
  • Nov 08, 2019
    Sloppy and unoriginal writing, unnecessary and inexplicable fight scenes that feel like they're scripted on time slots for each show. I wonder if this is the deep learning AI writing I heard was in the works. I wish it was better.
  • Nov 06, 2019
    Laughable dialogue, lame script, no intrigue or subtlety. This series is as stupid as the films were brilliant.
  • Nov 04, 2019
    It has the action, feel and pace you would come to expect from a show out of the Bourne Universe....and I love it! I'm a fan of the original book trilogy, the movies and have been waiting for a spy thriller since The Americans and Homeland. The story's is in it's early stages and it's trying to unfold a conspiracy involving Cold War superpowers, so some patience is required to piece together the writer's puzzle. I'm all in with Treadstone!!!!
  • Nov 01, 2019
    Each episode is packed with big budget effects. Surpurb acting.
  • Oct 30, 2019
    I tend to believe the audience score more than critics...
  • Oct 30, 2019
    So far is , the compeling history , great choreograph fight, i really hope this show last more that just 1 season
