The Dropout: Miniseries | Ratings & Reviews

The gall of these people. There is constant fun to be had shaking your head in disbelief at the nerve of these shysters, and to marvel at the scale of their fraud. Rather than diving into the "why", the show is happy to observe the deception and show its impact from multiple perspectives.  

"It was only a matter of time before someone adapted Holmes’ story to the screen... (The Dropout) is the first -- and its canny performances, writing, and directing should set a high bar for every other version to come."


"Delicate portraiture is where most scam shows falter and where The Dropout really pulls ahead of the competition."


"The Dropout feels a little bloodless."

"The Dropout gets under your skin, passing the "Should I watch?" test with flying colors."


"Things really start to move in episode 7, which must be the worst thing you can read in a TV review."

"Even if (The Dropout) exists more as a surface-level primer than a deep-dive, stars Amanda Seyfried and Naveen Andrews make it compulsively watchable."


"It’s a maddening, gripping, and at times startlingly funny recreation of a story that would feel too absurd to be true if we didn’t already know otherwise."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Bloody good performances."

"Amanda Seyfried deftly conveys the brittleness of Holmes’s fake-it-till-you-make-it demeanour, but the series is slightly let down by foreshadowing, blunt symbolism."


"The details are strikingly unembellished, but its the perspective-shifting storytelling that brims with imagination."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"The limited series compounds both the gravity and ridiculousness of what Holmes did not achieve."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"The Dropout refuses to ever fully lock on to a clear mission statement of its own, instead dutifully plowing through the facts of the case..."
