Critic Reviews

  • Season 1 Review: The exploration of identity and why we make particular choices ensure the framing of this series isn’t just a cheap gimmick and worth scratching beneath its shiny exterior.

    Rating: 75/100

  • Season 1 Review: In general West has wisely borrowed a page from British thrillers that don't try to do too much and focus instead on giving discerning audiences what they tuned in for. The only criticism after watching the first three episodes is that Surface already feels one episode too long.

    Rating: 70/100
  • Season 1 Review: What Surface fails to understand is that it isn’t clever in its lack of clarity. Sure, revelations about Sophie’s previous memories shouldn’t be abundant. But giving nearly nothing to viewers, Surface makes a poor case for itself as anything but fluff TV.

    Rating: 60/100

  • Season 1 Review: Only hardcore Mbatha-Raw fans might deem this drama worth watching, because outside of her, Surface is all splash and no depth.

    Rating: 42/100
    The Av Club
  • Season 1 Review: Bogged down with a flat script and a formulaic story that moves at a snail’s pace, Mbatha-Raw is left floundering for the few scraps of nuance to be found in her character.

    Rating: 40/100
  • Season 1 Review: Surface is a paint-by-numbers psychological thriller.

    Rating: 40/100
    The Guardian
  • Season 1 Review: As much as we couldn’t take our eyes off Gugu Mbatha-Raw during the first episode of Surface, her performance can’t save a show that doesn’t seem to have enough story to justify an 8-episode series.

    Rating: 30/100
