Do critics like it?

With only seven reviews in so far on Rotten Tomatoes, the show has an unimprovable 100% approval rating. Here’s what Amelia Harvey wrote in Screen Queens:

Silo is a beautifully realized slice of science fiction which bites off more answers than the ten-episode run can chew. The world-building and intrigue will keep audiences watching, and thankfully the payoff is almost worth it to patient viewers.
