Critic Reviews for The Book of Daniel: Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (17)

These actors help save the show from pure whimsy and excess, while they also remind us that lives steeped in religion don't have to be pious and dry.

I loved The Book of Daniel for its ability to let the plot slowly unfold and offer lots of little curves that lean into, then veer away from, cliché.

The cast is heavenly in The Book of Daniel; the writing isn't.

September 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Kenny's series says nothing new about faith, or the struggle to maintain it, instead aiming for the usual pinball chaos of a harried, goofy family juggling work and home. This is no wolf in sheep's clothing; it's just a sheep.

[Has] enough interesting denizens and situations to keep it going for a while.

September 5, 2019 | Full Review…

There's never a dull moment in this engrossing soap. But it's disappointing that Kenny felt the need to make this series so far over the top, because at its core, there's a great family show worth watching.
