Critic Consensus: Though Survive struggles under the weight of its subject matter and limited runtime, it's further proof that the incredibly talented Sophie Turner is worthy of bigger, better roles.

News & Interviews for Survive: Season 1
There are some nice moments of cinematography throughout but overall this is a decent story told in an unconventional manner. Still, if you are shelling out for Quibi, you could do worse than spending ten minutes each day seeing where this story goes.
It's essentially The Mountain Between Us for a younger set, only more concerned with depression and suicide, and is an odd fit for Quibi's limited dimensions.
As much as Survive escapes becoming completely melodramatic thanks to nuanced performances, there's a disconnect between the characters and the story at hand, often leaning more on its visuals-and Quibi's distribution method hinders its connection.
One way or the other, I'd like to bet the pairing of Turner and Hawkins will continue to make Survive an engaging, entertaining watch as we get more installments.
Sophie Turner takes the lead in a tonally uncertain drama about young people's mental health, set in a psychiatric facility called Lifehouse, equipped with landscaped gardens, a palatial pharmacy, and a "feelings doctor just for you."
