Age Before Beauty

Critics Consensus

Age Before Beauty aspires to be a clever and glamorous workplace drama, but this thinly written series needs a makeover before its social commentary and character dynamics can be more than just skin-deep.

Critic Reviews for Age Before Beauty Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

I won't say it's a stinker - nothing this pink, frizzy, frothy and flighty could ever smell of much too sulphurous, though cheap leftover champagne and week-old roses have their own singular woes.

This is a soap-panto and far too busy.

Aug 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It was comfortingly soapy, but in style and content Age Before Beauty needed a makeover.

Aug 6, 2018 | Full Review…

What seemed a tiresomely familiar tale was cleverly, if a touch convolutedly, turned on its head part way through, which bodes well for the next five installments.

Those expecting a sharper, more satirical edge might be disappointed... But this is solid writing, with a solid cast of decent, watchable actors.

It might go on to be a scathing indictment of society's current demands on bodies... and despite a nasty infidelity and a schemingly not nice Robson Green shock, it still feels more like a soap.

Some characters felt unbelievably over-the-top, the jokes didn't land and the tension never quite reached boiling point.

The salon might be back, but this is mutton dressed as lamb.

All this excitement can't make us forget our Poldark blues. But it's a welcome distraction.

Aug 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

... with a stage packed with big brightly-coloured characters who all get their fair share of the spotlight, this could be a lot of fun.
