“This is briny, brawny stuff; TV made for the cover of high-quality men’s magazines. If you are not into it after this pulsating first episode, you likely never will be. If you like your crime dramas to come with sweaty palms, this one is irresistible.”
Chris Bennion, The Telegraph

“I am determined to appreciate ZeroZeroZero even though it involves lots of unpleasant, violent men in various locations. It is shot beautifully and the cast is terrific.”
Carol Midgley, The Times

“It is gorgeous to look at; it is brutal enough for a trafficking tale; and there is plenty going on. But it is methadone to the heroin of, say, Narcos. The streak of nihilism that runs through it militates against you caring much what happens to any of the groups or individuals involved.”
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

“Our Garden Made Perfect is a spin-off from Your Home Made Perfect, and it uses the same gimmick. Instead of studying artists’ impressions before picking a design, the homeowners don virtual-reality goggles and see the visions projected before their eyes. It’s effective and visually dramatic. Watching it all take shape, and seeing the final result, was thoroughly satisfying.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“Your Garden Made Perfect stands as proof that virtual reality technology improves absolutely nothing. There are no stakes, no jeopardy. It is the televised version of watching a couple pick out curtains.”

“I knew The Drowning was barking mad, but that finale out-crazied all expectations. It was mouth-foamingly deranged. This drama has been like a fever dream. Entertaining at times, I’ll give it that, but full of sound and fury signifying nothing much at all.”
