Critic Reviews for Virgin River Season 1

If you sometimes tune into feel-good Hallmark shows to just switch off and feel cozy for a little while, Virgin River will help you do that. It's well-acted and well-written for this kind of show.

Audience Reviews for Virgin River: Season 1

  • 1d ago
    Virgin River is one long, textbook romance novel. The plot is formulaic (yupp, there actually IS a formula for romance novels), and the characters are 2-dimensional. Worse, Season 1 ends half way through the novel. If Season 2 happens, expect all to be worked out and for the two leads to end up together. Yawn. The acting is also formulaic (regretful longing, for example, is always portrayed by women with a certain tilt of the head, set of the eyebrows and extended length of gaze). I was bored stupid. Save yourself the trouble and pick up a trashy paperback - at least you'll get some real chemistry between the characters.

    It was good but didnt reflect well for the bookS.

    Bad acting, terrible writing, a sort of Northern Exposure wannabe with none of the elements that made that show unique: interesting characters, good writing, imaginative plots. The Hallmarkized version of Northern Exposure. Men in Trees was even better than this show and that was a terrible show as well.

    A rare well written series filled with complex and compelling characters. Totally refreshing stacked up against the reality show quagmire that is 90 percent of TV shows.

    Henderson and Breckenridge are strong, charming, and interesting leads. Their chemistry is evident on screen, and they leave you wanting to learn more and see how their relationship develops. The series is set in a beautiful rural town that honestly makes me want to pack my bags and leave the big city.

    I'd have given the series a higher score (I love TV movies or series based on romance novels) but Alexandra Breckenridge was a poor choice to play the lead. It felt like she phoned in her entire performance and she brought down every scene she was in. Other actors were all great, especially Annette O'Toole and Tim Matheson. I also loved the setting.

    This 10 episode series aspires to be a bad Lifetime movie. A series of cliches covered with sappy dialogue.

    Cliche and formulaic. Would be good if this was 1995

    I am disgusted that the characters are unrecognizable compared to the books. The biggest mistake so far are the changes in Jack. Jack is the glue who holds them all together. He is not the Jack that we love. Instead it opens and our dear beloved Jack has knocked up Charmaine, the woman in the next city he used to visit occasionally. He broke off their arrangement and then she shows up pregnant by Jack after he has made his play for Mel. Mel is packing to leave because she can't bear to watch Jack raise a child with another woman esp one who he only had a sexual relationship with. Charmaine is trying to convince Mel to leave so she can have Jack to herself. She said she knew he wouldn't be with her as long as Mel is still living there. To make matters more disappointing Preacher doesn't physically resemble his book character. He isn't large and he doesn't seem easy going. Someone came into work late and Preach charges the guy and starts a fight that is quickly snuffed out or something close to that. It made me physically ill. Even if Charmaine loses the baby I still couldn't watch it. That would take away from the beauty of Jack and Mel.

    Loved this first series. And hoping there's a second series in the making.
