      Swarm (2023)


      Season 1
      Swarm

      Critics Consensus

      Swarm can be as unpleasant as a hornet sting, but Dominique Fishback's ferocious performance and the creators' bold creative swings add up to a truly subversive take on toxic fandom.

        Absolutely brilliant!!! An insane masterpiece by Janine Nabers and Donald Glover!

        Horrifyingly brilliant, I was glued from the first episode. The series is a refreshing break from the traditional TV I've been watching, I found it smart, entertaining and impactful. Dominique Fishback's performance is incredible and the arc of her character Dre made me laugh and cry, always a good sign of a great show.

        Wanted to like it, but it was really boring. Gave up after two episodes. Fishback is excellent as Dre, but the acting isn't enough to save the random, incoherent storyline and characters. Parts of it are sort of funny. It fails as a horror because there's little tension and nobody in the show is likeable. Instead of building tension, we hear a swarm sound before violent scenes. Clumsy. It also fails to be psychological because most of the characters are contrived and unreal. I think there was some pop culture satire, but it never seemed to make a point.

        I read a lot of Dre's "weird" behavior as her just being neurodivergent so there's something about her also being violent and obsessive that feels really stigmatizing to me. There's a line in the episode 6 that pretty much says exactly this but in reference to Dre being a foster kid. The case worker says "I don't appreciate you portraying them as monsters. You are doing a disservice to all kids in foster care" and that's honestly exactly what I feel this show is doing to neurodivergence and it's sad as someone who has a lot of friends and family who are on spectrum.

        Dk what this show is about and don't care seen the trailer looks well boring and uninteresting will watch ep 1 to see if it improved from the trailer then comment after

        Une très bonne série chargée d'émotions fortes. Dre nous transporte dans un monde nouveau à chaque épisode. On assiste estomaqué à son évolution surprenante. A voir absolument.
      • Mar 20, 2023
        One of a kind show. Truly. Beyond exciting to see something so artistic, surreal and totally unexpected. Edge of your seat type episodes with the weirdest, wildest sense of humor. It's like a character driven dark comedy, horror, thriller all in one which I really love. And honestly, Dominique Fishback is maybe one of the best actresses out there. Donald Glover and Janine Nabers, y'all have taken us for a ride! Can't wait for a season two if there is one

        I'm blown away by this show. Still Trying to process it all. One of a kind.

        This show relied heavily on celebrity cameos and associated names to mask how unoriginal and poorly written it is. The premise, the characters, the dialouge...all shallow and predictable. It was almost a parody of itself.
      • 1d ago
        This was probably THE craziest show I have ever watched. Dom Fishbacks's acting was PHENOMENAL! I didn't know what to expect from Billie Eilish but she did really great and I could definitely see her acting in more shows and movies. Chloe Bailey did an awesome job as well. The storyline was great and it is definitely something you would see in real life (the show obviously took it up a couple notches though). Overall, I highly recommend watching this and you will be on the edge of you seat the ENTIRE time.
