The reviews of the first season have been pretty decent. The Hollywood Reporter reviewed the first season saying, "deftly tweaks its balance of suspicions to keep things interesting, but it's McKenna and Van Grootel who really pull focus."  The Hollywood Reporter's Angie Han said the series was missing a spark to set it apart from similar programming, with characters that feel like "archetypes," a "sour, dour mood, with few moments of either levity or raw pain," and dull colors that "keep the show's emotions at arm's length. The story moves forward at a painless pace, and the characters are easy enough to like, if not really interesting enough to love. But without any notable quirks or deep insights, it's also a show that seems likely to disappear from memory as soon as that binge is over."
