The show's earned rave reviews, with The Atlantic calling it "jaw-dropping" and many praising the doco's unbelievable twists and turns.

"To describe Wild Wild Country as jaw-dropping is to understate the number of times my mouth gaped while watching the series, a six-part Netflix documentary about a religious community in Oregon in the 1980s," wrote The Atlantic reviewer.

The Hollywood Reporter agreed. "Screened at the Sundance Film Festival in one exhausting, gripping gulp, it's a slice of partially forgotten history in which real life just keeps getting more and more outlandish and implausible. ... Wild Wild Country a worthwhile thought experiment in addition to a yarn that is, as the title promises, doubly wild."

Indiewire gave it a five-star review. "It's a challenging piece that requires the viewer to acknowledge their own reactions and then question them. In that, Wild Wild Country may be even more vital to a divided nation. It demands you see the other side."

Viewers have quickly latched onto the show, with many saying they're watching all six episodes in one sitting.
