1"Dead Man's Hand"Rian JohnsonRian JohnsonJanuary 26, 2023 (2023-01-26)

Laughlin, Nevada casino waitress Charlie Cale, a woman with the ability to tell if someone is lying, observes her maid friend Natalie Hill's abusive husband Jerry be ejected by head of security Cliff LeGrand. Manager Sterling Frost Jr. asks Charlie to help him scam client Kazimir Caine. Natalie discovers child pornography on Caine's computer. When she reports it to Frost, he deletes the evidence off her phone and has Cliff kill her and Jerry, staging it as a murder-suicide by using Jerry's gun. Charlie notices that Jerry's gun was in his right hand in a crime scene photo, contradicting where his ankle holster was, and she steals Natalie's tablet. She finds the deleted evidence in the tablet's trash and presents it to Frost, believing Caine was responsible for Natalie's murder. She realizes Cliff kept Jerry's gun when she sees footage of the metal detector not going off as Jerry was removed. She reveals to Frost that she recorded him setting up the scam poker game and sent it to Caine, irreparably damaging the casino's reputation. Frost commits suicide and Frost Sr. later calls Charlie, promising to kill her.

Charlie's car breaks down in New Mexico and she gives it to mechanic Jed. Both he and Subway worker Damian have a crush on convenience store clerk Sara, and Jed pushes him off his body shop's roof when he realizes Damian has won the lottery, finishing him off with a crowbar. He takes the lottery ticket and hides the body in passing trucker Marge's vehicle. She discovers it and tries to get rid of it, and Jed calls the police to frame her. Charlie's car is fixed, but Marge is blamed for Damian's murder and Jed claims the ticket as his own. After he lies about Damian never winning the lottery, Charlie reviews the body shop's security footage and notices it skips an hour. When she points out that the ticket's serial number does not match the time Jed claims to have bought it, he admits to the murder but has discovered that she is a person of interest and threatens to report her if she calls the police. As she leaves, a hidden camera radio show leads her to realize that a trucker she sat next to during Damian's murder would have caught the crime on his dash cam, asking his friends to turn the footage in to the police. Sara misdirects an arriving Cliff and Jed burns the ticket as the police arrive to arrest him.

The business-minded Taffy Boyle demands Charlie pay off what it ate, so she takes a job there and bonds with head chef George Boyle. He is deeply moved when she shows him the film Okja and plans to give up his stake in the business. Unable to afford buying him out, Taffy pre-records a segment for his radio show and pretends to air it live while he seals George in his trailer and suffocates him with grill smoke, beating the dog when it attacks him as he leaves. Charlie finds the dog as she leaves town, realizing that the wood it was beaten with is the same wood that created the smoke that killed George and was only used by him. After confirming Taffy had time to kill George during the broadcast, she brings her findings to Mandy, George's wife, and realizes she is in on it. Charlie has station employee Austin impersonate Taffy over the phone to trick Mandy into thinking he is going to confess, prompting her to sell him out to the police.

The band rigs his amplifier to electrocute him when Ruby lets him sing "Staplehead" and they pass "Sucker Punch" off as their creation. Charlie realizes the lyrics are based on items in Gavin's trash, and learns that the band was wearing rubber soles after finding a camera Gavin set up to record his footwork. She is forced to flee when a video of her punching a band's promotional mascot goes viral, allowing Cliff to track her down. "Sucker Punch" revives interest in Doxxology, but their lawyer informs them that the song's melody is lifted directly from the theme of Benson, resulting in a copyright lawsuit.

Irene sneaks into his room and poisons him, switching his wearable heart monitor and having Joyce tase her to trick the orderly into thinking he died of cardiac arrest. Charlie bumps into his "nephew" Luca Clark at his funeral, who admits he is an FBI agent with witness protection and explains that Irene and Joyce were actually arrested trying to bomb a Model UN meeting. A nosy resident tells Charlie that she saw Joyce tasing Irene, prompting them to kill her with a bomb. Charlie informs them that Gabriel's heart rate did not change when staff defibrillated him.

The project was announced in March 2021, with Rian Johnson serving as creator, writer, director and executive producer. Johnson stated that the series would delve into "the type of fun, character driven, case-of-the-week mystery goodness I grew up watching."[1] The series was inspired by Columbo, being referred as a "howcatchem". Johnson also used Magnum, P.I., The Rockford Files, Quantum Leap, Highway to Heaven and The Incredible Hulk as influences for the tone of the series.[17][18] Johnson was interested in "doing that Columbo or even Quantum Leap thing of having every episode be an anthropological deep dive into a little corner of America that you might not otherwise see."[19] On February 15, 2023, Peacock renewed the series for a second season.[4]


The announcement of the series included that Natasha Lyonne would serve as the main lead actress.[1] She was approached by Johnson about working on a procedural project together, with Lyonne as the lead character.[19] As Johnson explained, the role was "completely cut to measure for her."[18] While the series and lead character would share things in common with Columbo, the writers sought to differentiate the lead character by having her work outside of the law.[19]

Due to the series' procedural aspects, the episodes feature several guest stars. Johnson was inspired by the number of actors who guest starred on Columbo, wanting to deem each guest star as the star of the episode, which allowed them to attract many actors.[18]

In April 2022, Benjamin Bratt joined the series.[7] Instead of a guest role, his character would recur as Cliff, the head of security at a casino where Charlie works.[20] When she escapes the casino, his character would go after her, which Bratt called "a ticking clock for the show".[21]


According to the director of the Hudson Valley Film Commission, filming was based in Newburgh, New York, and ran from April through October 2022, in locations throughout the mid-Hudson Valley.[22] At least one episode of the series was filmed in late August 2022 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.[23] Outdoor scenes were filmed in Laughlin, Nevada, in September 2022, with the Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino depicting the fictional Frost Casino.[24]


Poker Face premiered on January 26, 2023, with the first four episodes available immediately and the rest debuting on a weekly basis.[3]

International sales are handled by Paramount Global Content Distribution.[25] The series is available on Citytv+ and Citytv in Canada[26] and on Stan in Australia.[27] The series debuted in Asia via Rock Entertainment on May 24, 2023.[28] The series then debuted in the United Kingdom on Sky Max on May 26, 2023.[29]

Paramount also handled home media distribution for the series, with Paramount Home Entertainment releasing the first season exclusively on Blu-ray on September 12, 2023.[30]


Critical response

Poker Face was met with critical acclaim upon release. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 99% approval rating with an average rating of 8.5/10, based on 88 critic reviews. The website's critics consensus reads, "With the incomparable Natasha Lyonne as an ace up its sleeve, Poker Face is a puzzle box of modest ambitions working with a full deck."[31] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 84 out of 100 based on 40 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[32]

Chicago Sun-Times's Richard Roeper gave a rating of 3.5 out of 4 stars and said, "The beauty part is watching the amazing Natasha Lyonne's Charlie puzzle out the crime in clever and often hilarious fashion."[33] Peter Travers of ABC News felt Lyonne landed "the role of her career" in Charlie Cale and called Poker Face "the best joyride of the 2023 TV season."[34] Linda Holmes of NPR felt Lyonne's "unforgettable" performance proved herself to be the "Peter Falk of her generation".[35] Ben Travers of IndieWire gave the series a B and stated "All this star power is enough to guarantee Poker Face will be, at least, an enjoyable diversion. But... it's hard to shake the feeling that Poker Face isn't as good as it could've been."[36] The Atlantic's Sophie Gilbert believed the show succeeded in its first episodes "by attending to the emotional cadences of overlooked people and places" but criticized the characters of later episodes for falling into tropes.[37]
