[The finale] wraps up the series well enough under the circumstances, but Swamp Thing deserves better than one single, truncated season.

In its initial form, the series is a messy, sweaty and genuinely scary romp in the swamp that embraces nature's dark side - murderous vines and all.
July 13, 2019
The greatest strength of episode one by far was its unbelievable use of practical effects.
July 13, 2019
Wan's new series, which can be especially frightening when it chooses to be, also opts in for more horror than not.
July 13, 2019
With a compelling plot, an appealing cast and impressive gore effects, this is shaping up to be a highly entertaining series.

Every week, Swamp Thing produces a stronger episode and a better case for why we need this show.

A particular eco-thriller that improves as it gets closer to physical and vegetable terror. [Full Review in Spanish]

Long-time stuntman and actor Derek Mears is the man inside the suit. Hats off to the team who put Swamp Thing's suit together because it looks awesome.

It isn't that Swamp Thing is bad, but it is certainly nowhere near as ambitious as Titans or Doom Patrol. Is it unfair to judge it that way? It's difficult to say, but it's much safer to say that the audience will be doing the same.

Sci-fi meets Southern Gothic in gory, gross suspense series.

Swamp Thing isn't the best DC series out there, and could use some tonal consistency and more interesting characters. But it's scary and gross enough to watch beyond the first episode.

It's really gross, and incredibly fun.

Swamp Thing leans in on backwoods swampy horror and it works so well.
May 30, 2019
Through two episodes, Swamp Thing isn't perfect, but it's more than capable of filling the hole in superhero television that's looking for a blend of horror and fantasy.
Full Review | Original Score: 70/100

There's a lot to love about a series that delivers genuinely shocking twists with a solid script, first-rate acting, [and] an atmospheric look that would leave many summer blockbusters looking terrible in comparison.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.0/5.0
May 30, 2019
Based on the first two episodes sent to critics, though, it's a decent enough origin story carried by a surprisingly good ensemble cast and the assertive direction of Len Wiseman.

Swamp Thing leans heavily into horror, delivering a truly scary TV-watching experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Swamp Thing is a winner for both longtime fans and franchise novices, and it sets the bar for where DC can go within darker genres.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The best show on the DC Universe streaming show to date! Top notch production values, with two great star turns by Crystal Reed & Andy Bean.
May 24, 2019
Swamp Thing has a truly unique aesthetic and visual tone for any DC show or film we've seen in years, and takes full advantage of the DC Universe's R-rated approach with fantastic creature effects and body-horror inspirations.
