Critic Reviews for Rise: Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (20)

Rise is not the next Friday Night Lights, or even the next great teen drama. It's more like Friday Night Lite.

It's time for a break from the tears. You have to earn those.

Like that of the New Directions on Glee, Stanton High School's drama department is made up of much diversity and various backgrounds. But watching their differences come together onscreen for one cause is truly magical.

The Young Folks

The story and its adult protagonist in particular are still finding their footing, but strong performances from its soon-to-be-stars make Rise worth the ride. When the younger members of the cast are allowed to take center stage, the show sings, too.

IGN Movies

Rise is up there as one of the best new shows, and that's down to the first class acting, relatable characters and an exciting subject matter. If you thought about overlooking this show, you should give it a shot. You will not be disappointed.

TV Fanatic

The audience doesn't get the chance to discover the students' strengths along with the characters...The way Rise unfolds now, there's no tension and no release. Events just happen one after the other.
