Origin: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Origin: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Origin's overstuffed space drama mimics many genre classics to varying degrees of success; thankfully, its stellar cast and withholding premise are intriguing enough to encourage exploring its mysterious -- if familiar -- corridors.

Critic Reviews for Origin: Season 1

All Critics (16)

When Origin gets it right, it's just a ton of fun. The slightly scrappy nature of the series works in its favor, with fresh talent both in front of and behind the camera.

Put simply, though it might be seen as transitional show in hindsight for YouTube, the pretty predictable Origin isn't essential viewing except for getting a look at the look from the Resident Evil franchise kingpin.

Despite the schlocky space adventure, the series just might hook you because of its flawed protagonists.

The show never rises above its blatant influences... It attempts to cover too much ground and be all things for all viewers rather than focusing on telling a good, streamlined story

November 21, 2018 | Rating: 5.7/10 | Full Review…

Creepy imagery, sci-fi violence in compelling space series.

November 20, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

'Origin' is 'Lost' in space (pun intended), without any of 'Lost''s intrigue and charm.
