A small, but impressive cast also do wonders.
November 22, 2019
Servant is haunting, eerie, and downright scary. Having only seen half of the season at the time of this review, I cannot say if the story sticks the landing,

By bucking the trend of bloated runtimes and unnecessarily long seasons, Servant proves that it's a great thriller, not in spite of its short runtime; but because of it.

Servant is just meant to be savored, like an expertly crafted menu.
November 22, 2019
Basgallop's creation is certainly something you've never seen before and if it doesn't get a second season (or was meant to be done in one) you may walk away slightly dissatisfied, but you'll know you went on one hell of a ride.
November 21, 2019
The cast brings their A-game, up for every strange thing thrown their way, and it keeps you guessing. Above all, it's well crafted.

M. Night Shyamalan's disturbing new thriller Servant on Apple TV+ is much more than a haunting tale about a mysterious nanny and a grieving couple. Servant does an excellent job making the viewer paranoid throughout.
November 27, 2019
Right from the outset Servant brings surprises that keep the viewer wrong-footed. It also retains a delicious ambiguity.
November 20, 2019
Plenty creepy, but far too mysterious.

December 12, 2019
Servant leaves you with enough questions to keep things interesting and builds to a reveal so harrowing, it will haunt you.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 20, 2019
The show pretty quickly proves that it's able to synthesize its initial premise into a larger story worthy of serialization.

Servant is an unfocused yet ultimately creepy good time with enough character and charm to keep its hazy nightmare from lulling you to sleep.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.1/10
November 20, 2019
Servant it's creepy, compulsively watchable fun, with a distinct personality. It shows that Apple is willing to make shows that are pretty dark, pretty risky, and not particularly aspirational.
November 20, 2019
Scary and sublime, M Night Shyamalan's Apple show is about the rich at war with the poor, about superstition clashing with rationality, and about how, when confronted with things we do not quite understand, we react with fear.
November 26, 2019
For all of the plot's shortcomings, moment-to-moment Servant is a delight with a surprising amount of laughs to share.
November 20, 2019
Like the show, her character remains opaque for longer than it should, but the dynamics introduced by Shyamalan and creator Tony Basgallop are rich in thematic potential, even when it feels as if there are too many of them.

Servant isn't a knock your socks off hit like, Netflix's Haunting of Hill House, but it is a show worth checking out as something not splashy but still very well crafted and that wears its desire to succeed on its sleeve
November 20, 2019
Admittedly, as I write this, I can't help but wonder what might happen next. While I've yet to be blown away by an episode of Servant, I nonetheless yearn for episode four.
November 20, 2019
Servant could have been a more straightforward tale about grief and power and class differences, but, to its credit, the series wants to be something a little different, something that excels in making its audience as uncomfortable as possible.
December 2, 2019
Servant has much to commend it... But it is never... remotely scary. Creepy, yes. Atmospheric, always. Unsettling in general. But so little actually happens that the series drags.
