Critic Consensus: Vice's storytelling reporting style seeks to examine the macro through the micro, though its shock jock approach occasionally overshadows its subjects.

Critic Reviews for Vice Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (9)

"Vice" tries to go where other news, documentary and magazine shows do not. That's okay, though it does at times overstate its pioneering prowess.

Truly, I get what "Vice" is trying to do, and while the desire to shed light on world issues is laudable, and some of the show even works, the sloppiness of the execution and the egocentric nature of the beast can be pretty damned hard to take.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

There's something bracing and surprisingly restrained about the show's approach to story-telling.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

This is broadcast journalism for those who have not typically paid attention to foreign news and aren't at all squeamish about seeing footage of war carnage that other networks might edit out as a matter of taste.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Traditional journalists and academics may debate the validity of "Vice's" approach to storytelling: Reportorial distance used to be seen as crucial to being able to fully report the facts on all sides of a story without bias.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Vice seeks to plug in a macro picture, focusing on "the absurdity of the modern condition" as it travels to places like the Philippines, the India-Pakistan border, North Korea and Afghanistan.

This isn't look-at-me journalism with a fitted Gap T-shirt. It's more of a "holy hell, can you believe this?" approach that fights perfectly on a cable channel trying to do something different.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The problem with "Vice" isn't its insistent aggrandizement but its excessive softheadedness. It's journalism at the intersection of shallow and gullible, where they meet, high-five and compare tattoos.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The reporting is sensational, in the sense that you feel it, without being sensationalistic, and it helps erase the bored detachment with which we grow to hear a phrase like "terrorist bombing."

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

"Vice" is superficial, but it seems almost knowingly so, giving the quick, most adrenalized version of a story to get people interested enough to at least Wikipedia the subject (and, of course, to associate "Vice" with adrenaline).
