What the press thinks …

According to The Playlist

Sweet Tooth is THE post-COVID series about taking place in a pandemic-stricken post-apocalyptic world the world needs right now (and she doesn’t hesitate to show plenty of footage of disinfection, mask-wearing, etc.). 5/5

According to The Hollywood Reporter

The performances are solid, the action scenes exciting and Jeff Grace’s score conveys the right notes of adventure and melodrama. Despite a budget that is not that of a Peter Jackson, the special effects team did a remarkable job on the magical elements of the story. 4/5

According to Variety

The series is aimed at a certain age group and becomes a fun program for them. There are enough twists and turns to keep the parents’ interest, without it being too absurd. 3.5 / 5

According to IndieWire

The storytelling, universe building, and character work are efficient enough that you can easily turn off your brain and enjoy the adventure (i.e. if you can get past The Sick). Sweet Tooth might not offer a complete meal, but sometimes all you need is a good piece of chocolate. 3.5 / 5

According to Large Screen

This first season is used first to introduce the characters and the universe of the series before the second, which should be announced immediately if the success is at the rendezvous. In any case, the series has done everything to make sure. 3/5

According to Cineseries

We regret not having, instead, a simpler adventure with only two protagonists who share a part of their existence together in order to rally a point A to a point B. When we move away from them, all that happens is followed with polite boredom. 3/5

According to Télérama

If the different threads of the story eventually come together, the eight episodes of this first season, a long set-up also loaded with flashback, struggle to find the right balance. 2.5 / 5
