The Society: Season 1 Reviews

May 24, 2019
The Society revels in hammy mystery tropes and slapstick religious symbolism.
May 14, 2019
All of this and more makes for a brilliantly average, perfectly imperfect show for bouncing teens, cankered fortysomethings and nothing in between. A joy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

At a certain point the drama does get addictive, as the show eventually reveals what it's really about: a grim reckoning with the fact that these teens have had to grow up too fast.

Even as much as "The Society" spins its wheels... there just aren't many other teen shows that routinely debate the advantages of capitalism versus socialism or democracy versus dictatorship.
May 9, 2019
The series deftly balances its entertainment value with some thoughtful exploration of issues relevant to a young-adult audience. More engrossing than you might expect.
May 9, 2019
Not the most innovative or boundary-breaking take on the Lord of the Flies architecture, The Society does justice to much of its potential and there's an audience out there, not exclusively in that young adult demo, that will devour it.
May 8, 2019
A concoction of hormonal impulses and moral dilemmas, it can be daffy and even a little dumb, but it has some thematic ambition, a talented cast, eventful episodes and a core mystery that may keep you hanging on through its 10-episode first season.
