Critics Consensus

Guided by an excellent turn from Jessica Biel, Limetown sustains and impressively creeping atmosphere that makes up for its occasionally fuzzy plotting.

Critic Reviews for Limetown Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

With a creepy story and a strong lead performance, Limetown is definitely worth checking out, whether you're a fan of the podcast or not.

Top Critic

Limetown is a mood, sustained by its vague whiff of oddity and Biel's ability to be consistently watchable.

Sep 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The contributions of a commanding lead like Jessica Biel and outstanding support from Stanley Tucci help this version of Limetown feel as engrossing and necessary as the first.

Limetown is tosh of the highest quality.

Top Critic

The mystery is more than engaging enough to keep me watching, and Biel really does a lot of heavy lifting in terms of holding it all together.

Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The production crew takes all of the mental pictures painted by the dialogue and transforms them into visual poetry that creates an atmosphere you can feel for hours afterward.

Oct 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Limetown is a (perhaps too) faithful adaptation of the hit podcast that has plenty of potential and a superb cast.

Oct 22, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Limetown is watchable due to the performances of Biel and Tucci, and it seems to cover a little more ground than the original podcast.

Oct 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The mark of a good show is when it leaves you wanting more, and Limetown definitely accomplishes that goal.

Oct 14, 2019 | Rating: 4.0/5.0 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the premise is about all Limetown has going for it. The plot details are silly.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

While Limetown the podcast felt tight and well-planned, Limetown the show struggles to establish solid footing.

Sep 10, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

It's also a slow, dark crime story that focuses only on the crime itself, to the detriment of getting to know its characters better, or any possible hint of lightness that would make us want to stay in Limetown long enough to get answers.

    Brilliant. It keeps the suspense through all 10 episodes. I need its second season.
