Critic Reviews of "Waco: Madman or Messiah - Season 1"
indieWireJanuary 25, 2018
The Waco series seems overly eager to vindicate Koresh. And that taints an otherwise well-told story.
The AtlanticJanuary 25, 2018
What Waco needs, and fails to achieve, is a complex, unified theory of Koresh.
NPRJanuary 24, 2018
A compelling, tragic tale that allows stars like Kitsch and Shannon to play different, surprising roles, just like the new cable channel that's featuring the show.
RogerEbert.comJanuary 24, 2018
The show creates its own problems in telling this story, especially as it can't seem to handle the scope.
NewsdayJanuary 23, 2018
Waco won't be the first drama to reduce a tragedy to its simplest components, but this doesn't offer much confidence that these are the right components or the only ones.
TV FanaticMay 01, 2018
Whether he's hanging with the guys and playing in a local rock band or preaching to his flock, Kitsch's convincing performance of Koresh is what keeps all eyes on Waco.
Tampa Bay TimesJanuary 23, 2018
The series may not add anything new to the conversation, but it's a prestige-quality exploration of the echoes of a historic tragedy.
CinemaBlendJanuary 22, 2018
Waco won't be setting any new bars for true crime fiction, but it's a solid and timely reminder of just how easily we can be swayed by loud and confident people, regardless of what's coming out of their mouths.
The PlaylistJanuary 18, 2018
Don't expect "Waco" to break out as one of 2018's stealth critical successes or award magnets. Still and all, it is adequate television - succinct and informative enough to at least glance at sideways.
ForbesJanuary 17, 2018
The Paramount Network needs something flashy and bold to ring in its launch, and Waco isn't it. The show should have been used as an addition to something bold, not as a starting move.
