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

  • 3d ago
    Such a good series so far. I got sucked in immediately and I don't even watch Jason Bourne.
  • 3d ago
    If you like the Bourne series, this is a perfect series for you. The plot, pacing, acting, and even the music scratches the Bourne itch. I hope USA Network keeps it.
  • 3d ago
    Very well acted and written show. The characters are interesting and the show does not get boring. The show lays heavily on the Bourne trilogy while still doing enough to stand on its own.
  • 5d ago
    The storyline is not deep enough. It's just all action tv series.
  • Nov 28, 2019
    Show is great other than the story arc with the reporter. They should have gotten a decent actress to do the job just seems lifeless.
  • Nov 26, 2019
    forget about critique...show is great
  • Nov 20, 2019
    Absolute awesomeness!!!!! Can't stop watching !!!!!
  • Nov 20, 2019
    Story is too chopped up between the many characters and the flashbacks. Not interesting enough to be worth the time.
  • Nov 19, 2019
    It's a good watch, not hard to digest but will leave you with earwig questions as to the nature of Treadstone as it doesn't fully line up with the Jason Bourne series even though it plays out in the same timeline. It's worthwhile and the fight scenes are very well done and brings believability to the TV franchise.
  • Nov 16, 2019
    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.
