Rinzy Reviews ‘Swamp Thing’ Season One (2019)

First episode aired: May 31

Network: DC Universe

Starring: Crystal Reed, Kevin Durand, Andy Bean, et al.


I don’t think it’s farfetched to crown ‘Swamp Thing‘ the best original show on the DC Universe streaming service.

After ten well-paced episodes, the Swamp Thing‘s first (and only) season has come to an end.

We may never get to know the real reason behind the show’s shocking cancellation, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still clamor for more. Hopefully, the powers that be at Warner Bros. hear our cries and do the needful.

If you’ve been searching for a reason to binge Swamp Thing, here are some pointers:

The show has boasts of a great cast. And there are some familiar faces too; Crystal Reed (Allison Argent in Teen Wolf), Kevin Durand (Vasiliy Det in The Strain), and Andy Bean (Greg Knox in Power), amongst others.

Intriguing characters. If it isn’t Dr. Abby trying to get to the root of the darkness besieging the swamp, then it’s Avery Sutherland constantly scheming to move his diabolical plans forward. Whatever the case, there’s no shortage of drama from the show’s addictive characters.

The visuals are really good for a TV budget. Don’t get it twisted, Swamp Thing is a horror show, and the cinematography does a good job at shrouding the whole town in darkness, vastly establishing the tone of the show.

I’ll advice you don’t get discouraged by the cancellation; the show’s good and I believe time spent binging it will be worth it. Also, the season/series finale does a good job tying off loose ends, while still leaving enough pieces should Warner Bros. renegade on its decision, so you’re assured of closure at the end.

Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5.
