Reviews

"Absorbing family drama about love and loss, with an added bonus: Oprah." - Verne Gay, Newsday

"It's exactly the kind of dramatic tentpole the Oprah Winfrey-branded network has been searching for since its inception." - Joshua Alston, AV CLUB

"It's gratifying to feel thrust into an environment that's unique to scripted TV and being forced to learn the rules." - Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter

"It's fresher, wiser, and more relevant than most shows that tackle spiritual matters, and it brings more people of color in more unique roles to TV. "- Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly

"Pray for these sinners ... but not too well. "Greenleaf" deserves to flourish." - Mark A. Perigard, Boston Globe
