Critics Call Rubicon a “Ray of Hope,” James Badge Dale a “Great Actor”

The Rubicon sneak preview grabbed the attention of a variety of publications this week, who lavished praise on the series, calling it “fresh and rather chilling.”

The San Antonio Express News calls Rubicon a “Ray of hope,” in a TV landscape without shows that have ended their seasons (like Breaking Bad). Writer Jeanne Jakle is smitten with star James Badge Dale, who, she says, “Combines Harvey Keitel’s intensity and Mathew Morrison’s sweet good looks.”

The San Francisco Bay Guardian also caught the sneak preview and says that “Rubicon is poised to be another sparkling gem in the dark trove of AMC treasures that have made recent cable so fascinating and so…adult.”

MTV calls James Badge Dale a “great actor” and says “From Mad Men and Breaking Bad to Rubicon and, soon enough, The Walking Dead. AMC is going to own basic cable networks with its edgy original programming before long.”

• Last Sunday’s sneak preview also caught the eye of Zap2It, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Pop Candy, and USA Today.
