Staying the course may prove to be time decently spent.

Uncle Barky

The series can be demanding, requiring an effort to suspend disbelief and also overlook the characters' frequent unpleasantness.

PopMatters

The story is good and now that we know who's who, where's who and in what year, maybe we can enjoy lighter taps from the narrative hammer in forthcoming episodes.

Guardian

Curiously watchable, but in its attempts to cover all bases, this new series could turn out to tell us stuff we've heard a hundred times before.

Metro [UK]

Milne turns each character into such a cipher it feels more like a game of Guess Who than a plausible dramatic conceit.

Daily Telegraph

Will I tune in next time? Probably, albeit with less enthusiasm.

Full Review… | May 9, 2012
New Statesman

Quickly proves to be a warmed-over and tepid mishmash of changing-times cliches.

TV Guide

After only one episode it's clear that the more we learn about each of them, the more we will want to know.

Full Review… | May 9, 2012
Wall Street Journal

A bold, fabulously written (if at times overbearing) chronicle of the political and social changes which sweep through Britain beginning in the mid-1960s and which shaped - and in some cases, radically misshaped - a generation.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Hardly merits the name, proving more plodding and cliched than anything else.

Full Review… | May 9, 2012
Variety

The real problem with the series isn't the haphazard history-it's the utter implausibility of the friendships it depicts.
