Dare Me: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Critic Consensus: Visceral, if at times vapid, Dare Me's slow-burning thriller pairs nicely with its moody atmospherics to create a deft exploration of the interiority of teen life.

Tv Season Info

Peering behind the all-American facade, the series dives into the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading. It follows the fraught relationship between two best friends (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly) after a new coach (Willa Fitzgerald) arrives to bring their team to prominence. While the girls? friendship is put to the test, their young lives are changed forever when a shocking crime rocks their quiet suburban world. Part coming-of-age story, part small-town drama, part murder mystery, Dare Me exposes the physical and psychological extremes that some young women are willing to endure in order to get ahead.

When that disorienting, who-to-believe framework gets reflected from multiple angles, "Dare Me" truly delivers.

Such plotting -- of teenage girls being pitted against each other and drifting apart -- could come off cliche, but Dare Me does more than incorporate the trope. It examines the way conflict warps the girls' perception of each other, giving it more nuance.

Dare Me feels like one of those shows that you're either going to buy into from the start or just shrug and abandon because the story isn't moving along fast enough.

What was at first a seemingly relaxed teen drama soon proves itself to be a skillfully told thriller with a penchant for surprises and twists that don't undercut the power of the narrative.

The jury is out on whether or not this turns into a mystery we care about, but the pilot makes a strong case to at least stay tuned in.

Dare Me is long on atmosphere, short on plot, and distressingly overburdened with anachronistic dialogue.
