Critic Reviews for Hope Island: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

The writing is bad, but the acting is worse. The series contains amateurish performances by actors struggling to be charming and failing badly.

The characters are charming, quirky and fleshed out, and the setting -- a remote island a few miles off the coast of the Pacific Northwest -- is the most captivating since Northern Exposure.

July 23, 2019 | Full Review…

"Hope Island" isn't as subtle, as wry, or as richly ethnographic as the original, but writers Mary Hanes and Jason Milligan are both people of faith and it shows.

July 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The problem is that the show tries so hard to be charmingly quirky that it's just odd at times

July 23, 2019 | Full Review…

There is an overall gentleness here that's refreshing, especially in service to such a well-constructed story.

July 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Barry Donlevy's cinematography is "Hope Island's" strongest asset; he captures the natural beauty of the setting though Brad Turner's direction, but the scripts haven't quite figured out how to use the island itself as a character.
