    The narrative can sometimes be confusing. But the multiple, long arcs become legible, and sort themselves out satisfactorily in the end, if not in any way surprisingly. And there are good, under-the-top performances that enliven characters fetched from mothballs.

    The first episode is confusing, introducing a multitude of characters and agendas. Stay with it. The second episode brings several of the characters and the conflicts into focus.

    Cleverman works up to a point, but the failure of the show’s creative team to build upon the promise of its conceit and its underlying ideas leaves a sour taste in one’s mouth.

    [An] appealingly gritty but haphazardly constructed show.

    Cleverman is full of potential. It just takes all season to embrace it.

    Hunter Page-Lochard sines as an amoral Hair "passing" for human. And Game of Thrones' lain Glen deliciously leans into his Untrustworthy Media Mogul role. Unfortunately, Cleverman can't settle on a tone, weaving ham-handed political melodrama with a yet-more-ham-handed mystical chosen-one narrative. [3 Jun 2016, p.101]

    The first hour is confusing and the acting a bit forced, so it may try your patience.
