Condor: Season 1 / Reviews

Variety

Variety

The storytelling, here, is workmanlike and efficient. But Joe’s story comes to life too infrequently. ... [Supporting performances] can’t save Condor from a dull leading man and a premise that’s less adapted than retreaded, but they make it much more fun.

Vulture

Vulture

The end product lacks a certain verve. ... Condor is an honorable effort, thoughtfully made even when it’s struggling to differentiate itself from similar projects that came before.

Condor can be a little too blunt--a few of the villains’ lines could use some massaging, especially in romantic scenes--and it hasn’t made any big moves to prove why we need another adaptation, but it has a good handle on the core story. And the story, as we know, is a good one.

The New Yorker

The New Yorker

The Joe-and-Kathy relationship in the show is an improvement on the film’s, in both plausibility and tone. ... Condor, rewiring the anxieties of classic paranoid thrillers for contemporary nervous systems, presents every citizen’s sense of isolation as the product of a state overrun with double-dealing.

Los Angeles Times

As the plot lines stretch this way and that and back into the past, the main thread--there is one--can get a little lost. Still, the parts themselves make sense, even when you can’t recall how they fit together.
