Reprisal The Best TV Shows of 2019

Critics Consensus

Solid performances and a fast pace move Reprisal along, but its style over substance approach is all pulp, little juice.

Critic Reviews for Reprisal Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Reprisal builds in momentum as the characters converge and the chaos ensues. Enjoy the insanity.

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

It's just one layer of gonzo showboating on top of the next, a house of cards that topples whenever it leans too hard into small human drama it hasn't earned.

"Reprisal" isn't really noir, though. It doesn't have the style or the romance or the fatalism. It's an example - fairly diverting, but never entirely satisfying - of another currently popular television genre: the fairy tale of aggrieved American manhood

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Reprisal is smart and surprising. While it could have benefitted from being two or three hours shorter, it uses its time wisely enough to become a thrilling binge-watch.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The connection between Ethan and Meredith burns bright, and the people who cast Massoud and Davenport in their respective roles are geniuses.

Dec 9, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Spencer's performance is good enough to keep viewers watching Reprisal. But to do so you'll have to watch the confusing parts revolving around the Banished Brawlers to get to Spencer's more interesting scenes.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Reprisal is a show that can be best described as one that needlessly spins its wheels in an attempt to find a story that just isn't there.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Reprisal would be a lot of fun if it were 100 minutes. Unfortunately, it's 10 episodes, some of which are fully an hour long. Reprisal suffers from the same problem so many shows in the Peak TV era do: Not enough story to justify the runtime.

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

"Reprisal" takes a little while to take hold, as the viewer gets their bearings in this strange new landscape. But it's so audacious and unexpected that I want to see Doris' dark mission of revenge to its end.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The Abigail Spencer led revenge drama has a great premise, but... runs out of gas on a narrative road strewn with cliches that turns what hopes to be bad-ass into banal.

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Reprisal is an incredibly well-acted, beautifully shot series that tells a compelling story of revenge.

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Reprisal is ultimately a disappointment.

    Was mad when Timeless was canceled, now I'm glad. Great show

    If you enjoy mind bending shows with great actors and plenty of visual stimulation, this is for you. The cast is top notch. Music and photography awesome. Dont expect the plot to be spoon fed to you. Expect confusion. I would say it is a cross between American Gods and Westworld. Look at the ratings. The critics weren't impressed, the actual tv watchers liked it.

    Binge Worthy! Reprisal offers you an experience that is few and far between these days! I enjoyed this gripping tale that hooked me from the start and kept me in suspense for every turn of this clever and wonderful drama. It's great in every aspect from the amazing performances by every single cast member, the scenery and lore of this unique world, and to the awesome soundtrack that hits the right notes at the right times to truly get you hooked. Can't wait for season 2!

    I don't know why there are so many bad reviews on this show! It is witty, different, compelling, and so well cast! In a time where shows tend to just be like all the ones before them this is a must see!

    Such an amazing show. Like nothing I've ever seen before. Incredible performances by the whole cast, the visual stimulation through the consumes and sets was fully enamoring and the soundtrack was top notch. I really really hope there's many more seasons to this tale

    It had great lines, action, and a reminder not to underestimate people. Loved it!

    People get hung up on what time period this takes place in. Suspend belief and think of it as its' own universe. If Sons of Anarchy was a pulp film this is what it would feel like.

    Dark and violent, it is still very good. Abigail Spencer is delicious in a role that is a cross between Betty Draper from Madmen and Uma Thurman in Kill Bill.

    original, fun, and well done.
