Critic Reviews for 1983 Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Doesn't lay its alternate reality on too heavily, instead relying on its mix of revolutionaries and sympathetic officers for a tense mystery well-suited to our own current reality.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

While expertly crafted and acted, 1983 ultimately struck me as a good show in need of a better villain.

Dec 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The show earns its 1984 echo with a government that disappears dissidents and rewrites the historical record, and its Internet-age take on the surveillance state.

Jan 10, 2019 | Full Review…

1983 makes the argument that true global entertainment is good for viewers around the world.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The scene has been evocatively set for a dystopian drama that looks to be worth following.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Does a fine job of playing out an intriguing mystery while not leaning on its alternate-reality gimmick too hard.
