Tut: Season 1 (2015)


Critic Consensus: Tut sacrifices historical accuracy for the sake of schmaltzy melodrama, wasting a talented cast on a biopic that misunderstands its subject's timeless appeal.

Critic Reviews for Tut Season 1

Spike unveils its first major scripted production, Tut, a largely enjoyable, if uneven three-night epic.

The perception going in was that Tut would be a laughable feast. My truth going out is that it plays out much better than anticipated.

Meanwhile, the soap keeps generating suds, while Kingsley plays it solemn and serious.

The good special effects, interiors and locations help keep our heads in the past, as do the actors' committed performances. In a better world, destiny, the gods and opportunity would have given the actors a better way to use their talent.

Tut has all of the makings for a powerful re-entry into scripted programming for Spike TV, unfortunately the series falls short, giving it more of a soap opera feel, than the epic saga that I'd hoped for.

Three nights' worth of Tut became a slog, some of it through copious amounts of spurting blood.

Despite some handsome visuals, colorful costumes and more eyeliner than in an entire season of RuPaul's Drag Race, Tut is as dry as the desert air.

Suitably blood-drenched and lavish, but narratively hollow, Spike's new mini-series Tut is about as slow moving as the titular boy king's mummified corpse, and feels just as fresh.

The series is so devoid of any real riches, it should be hosted by Geraldo.

The dialogue ranges from the prosaic: "I seem to have lost my way. Can you spare me some meat?"-to the accidentally amusing.
