What The Critics Say (Metascore 57)

  • It can all be a bit heavy-handed, but damned if I’m not intrigued. — Matt Roush, TV Guide
  • There’s timeliness to the never dull “Damnation” despite its period setting, particularly in episode two when a professor (Gabriel Mann, “Revenge”) disparages the “unwashed rural masses.” Just don’t go looking for any heroes: There are none to be found. — Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • To Damnation’s credit, Seth and Creeley are compelling characters–worthy opponents with hangups that make their two sides of the story individually sympathetic. But too often, the details around them become a hash.  — Sonia Saraiya, Variety
