Critic Reviews for Cheat: Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (8)

A four-part English thriller that'll make you gasp.

November 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Cheat has two very good lead performances and is just short enough to tells us that the storytelling won't take the viewer down blind alleys.

November 25, 2019 | Full Review…

A passable iteration of the sort of pulpy drama about middle-class domesticity gone wrong...

July 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Whereas its other current offering - BBC1's Baptiste - is still meandering around and getting nowhere slow after four episodes, Cheat got stuck in straight away.

June 11, 2019 | Full Review…

A devilishly entertaining, slightly repellent, and entirely addictive thriller.

November 14, 2019 | Full Review…

I would have to watch it again to see if it made sense, but my strong hunch is that it didn't, quite.
