Caroline Framke of Variety wrote the show builds slowly:

Calling something a “slow burn” usually means emphasizing the “slow.” But “Sharp Objects” proves that the real trick to a masterful slow burn is tapping into a story’s underlying heat and fanning it until the moment when it can finally go up in flames. 

According to Framke, this pace works for the series though:

Every frame crackles with a barely (and expertly) restrained tension — slow and steady, but threatening with every passing second to explode. Where so many other shows would seize every opportunity to boil over, “Sharp Objects” simmers with astonishing patience — or at least it would be astonishing, if women didn’t know that feeling intimately.
