      Caroline Siede The Daily Beast For families who’ve finished Percy Jackson and are looking for something to watch next, The Spiderwick Chronicles is a worthy enough follow-up. Just don’t expect too much in the way of bona fide magic. Apr 24, 2024 Full Review Aramide Tinubu Variety Unfortunately, though the show is supposed to be adventurous, it lacks the whimsy needed to elevate the narrative for a new generation of young adults. Apr 19, 2024 Full Review Angie Han Hollywood Reporter The Roku Channel adventure is undone by the most mundane of missteps: repetitive plotting, lumpy pacing, underdeveloped characters making inexplicable decisions. Apr 19, 2024 Full Review Alex Maidy JoBlo's Movie Network It has a distinct enough mythology that it could garner enough of a fan base to garner a season two. Still, I was underwhelmed by how mediocre the overall first season ended, leaving me without any desire to see where this story could go next. Rated: 6/10 May 3, 2024 Full Review Joe Lipsett Hazel & Katniss & Harry & Starr Podcast The focus on the Grace family, and particularly Jared's mental health, is welcome, although it does overwhelm the plot and become repetitive as the season wears on. The lacklustre FX and terrible theme song detract. A soft recommend for fans of the books Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 26, 2024 Full Review Joel Keller Decider The Spiderwick Chronicles isn’t scary enough or wonderous enough to hold our interest, and we get the feeling that kids who watch the show will seek out other shows that are either scarier or more whimsical.
