"A mostly newbie-friendly initiation into the 'Discworld' universe, but other than its supernatural larks, it fails to convey the magic that’s kept audiences coming back for decades."  NEU

Zack Handlen
"Is it watchable? Sure. Some of the setpieces are fun enough. It’s just a pity that so much work and time — and such a beloved, iconic source series — went into something so pleasantly empty."  NEU

Kiko Martinez
"[It] won’t create many more fans of mythical storytelling. In fact, the show’s generic worldbuilding, one-dimensional characterizations and lack of consistent wit will disappoint the kind of niche audience it’s trying to attract."  NEG

Joel Keller
"It’s not that 'The Watch' is a complete mess (...) But the first episode was so jumbled (...) it forgot to establish anything about most of the characters we’ll be seeing for the entire season."  NEU

AV Club
"[It] will disappoint 'Discworld' fans—and maybe everybody else, too"  NEG
Alex Maidy
"It has the same energy as 'Doctor Who' and other British genre television, but there is not enough going on to really invest a lot of time in. "  NEU

Ready Steady Cut
"[It] is primarily aimed at the audience who’ll hate it most, but non-devotees might find some sporadic pleasure in its scatty worldbuilding and weird tone (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU
