Critics Consensus

Nothing Sacred is an inquisitive study of religion in the modern world, with an appealing Kevin Anderson providing solid eloquence even when the series feels too self-satisfied in its sermon.

Critic Reviews for Nothing Sacred Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (13)

It's not really Christian at all. Or anti-Christian. Or anything. It's nothing. Just more phony Hollywood iconoclasm.

Nothing Sacred proves it has a grander purpose than merely rattling cages for cheap effect. Executive producers David Manson and Richard Kramer create a religious ruckus to get at powerful matters: virtue, faith, integrity, compassion.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Smart though often flippant, Nothing Sacred is gutsy but a bit too enamored of its envelope-pushing sense of rebellion.

Nothing Sacred is supreme TV.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

The best new show this fall is Nothing Sacred, a gripping and wildly intelligent new drama... Put it this way: It's enough to give you faith in ABC.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

In trying to balance faith and entertainment, the show often yields to melodrama.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Nothing Sacred dares to live in the real world, where rigid dogma clashes with practical issues of survival.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

We liked this show for its modern take on religion, thoughtful approach to tough issues, and strong writing.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Finally, in Nothing Sacred, we have a depiction of priests and nuns as human beings instead of figurines suitable for dashboards. Apparently it's more than some can handle.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Inspired programming? Heavens, no.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is a network anomaly. It tells stories that have social value, a point of view. It tells them simply and well.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a really great show -- well-written, well-acted and thoughtful.
