Critic Reviews for The I-Land Limited Series

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

A bafflingly horrible sci-fi show, the kind of project that leaves your jaw on the floor, not unlike the first time you saw Tommy Wiseau's The Room.

Sep 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Over the course of its seven-episodes, The I-Land toggles the line between ridiculous parody and laughable drama.

"Things are going to get worse before they start getting better," says one character. As the series progresses, it is painfully clear that the character is right. [Full Review in Spanish]

I guess mystery box isn't an apt description for this indisputable disaster, as mysteries come with some intrigue to see them solved and boxes are actually useful.

Sep 16, 2019 | Rating: 10/100 | Full Review…

Quite possibly the worst TV show of 2019.

Sep 14, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's one of the worst shows I've ever seen and, in that, one of the most fascinating.

Sep 17, 2019 | Full Review…

This is sci-fi without a vision, a genre piece that doesn't know how its own genre works. The I-Land is begging to be forgotten.

The I-Land's clunky dialogue and generic characters make us care very little about why these ten jerks are on this island.

    So saved it. Watched the first episode. No... I won't do a detailed review. Why? Just think train wreck. Writing and Directing and Acting train wreck. The decent actors there were absolutely wasted their talents on this. So to sum, story, trainwreck, directing, trainwreck, characters, trainwreck, whole thing? Wooo Woooooo CRASHHHH!!!! So I watched first episode. then started second. About 20 min in I think, What am I? A masochist? No. I am not a masochist." Delete. Don't know how it "developed, where it went". Don't care.

    This show could have been SO much more - the next LOST, but instead, they tried to cram what should have been 20 episodes into 7. When will Hollywood understand that anything less than a dozen episodes isn't a show - it's a miniseries and needs to then be written as such. This show was not. Not to mention, they dressed all the characters in the baggiest, most plain unattractive outfits - then made the only meaninful part of the show about 90% flashbacks that didn't come until 5/7th the way through it. Ultimately, I'm so sorry I wasted the time watching this it is FAR from what I expected from a Netflix production these days.

    It's bad. Like, just bad. I'm really surprised that some of these fairly decent actors who have done a good job in other movies acted so badly here - that means it's probably the writing or directing. It feels like it was either written by a teenager trying to be deep, or someone trying to relate to the "fellow kids". Yet somehow, I actually finished the whole thing. I think it was just a fascination with the disaster that this is.

    Fantastic reach into topics we refuse to discuss! the world is not black and white just because its inconvenient to see the grey.

    I love this series. Like a Black Mirror episode. I really cannot comprehend the negative reviews. Plenty of plot holes but what show doesn't?

    If I am ever held captive hope the guards all hold their weapons within reach to be easily knocked aside, go down with one punch and remove my restraints when requested.

    There is a loy of wrong in this series. But there was some good to it. It can be confusing with the theme shifts. I watched all 7 episodes and enjoyed it.

    Amazingly terrible. Probably one of the worst character and plot developments ever written. Don't waste your time.
