Amazing Stories

Critics Consensus

While Amazing Stories' aspirations are admirable, it feels more like a dated retread than a heartfelt reboot.

    WTF were they thinking with this show? Most if not all of the episodes were crap, the woke nonsense is already getting old, the majority don't care for it. The actors were not good, the script was crap, did they take donations to cover the budget?

    wow. the reviewers here must have not watched beyond the first episode. "Signs Of Life" is the best and most original sci-fi story I've seen on the screen in ages! Rivals the original Outer Limits!

    Dylan O'brien episode was good, but it was the only one. The others were just watchable, but at least they were creative content that served as a good escape.

    Especially 'The Rift' is pure low low budget garbage with so many plot holes. Example: Pilot wakes up from whatever first thing he shouts 'why are there guards?' He can't even see the door from his bed let alone the guard around the corner. Brainless derivative nonsense the whole series.

    It's just really really unimagiantive. Time traveler finds love. Dead girl has to do one last thing. Secret alien invasion. Accidental Superpowers and time traveler is a fish out of water. Those stories have been told a thousand times and they've been told better. The characters are cardboard cutouts, the acting is okay but nothing special and even the effects are sometimes pretty rough. Even the look of the show isn't anything special. Given Spielberg's involvement, that's pretty sad. It's hard doing a good anthology series these days since pretty much everything has already been done by the original Twilight Zone in the 50s and 60s. The lacklustre reboot of that show makes that pretty clear. It's rather obvious, that Apple needed an IP for its streaming service and thought about actual stories second. Well it seems like there weren't any worth telling. If this gets a second season, they should really focus on coming up with some original stories. Or at least some clever twist on the old ones. Maybe making the episodes feature length could help with characterisation and giving the directors a little more creative freedom, could help with the boring look. As it stands, it's pretty forgettable.

    Some things should just be left as they were. This 2020 reboot is like a series of high definition lifetime network movies with generic story lines and politically correct characters inserted to try and make itself relevant today. The awe and wonder the original series brought is just not here.
  • Sep 06, 2020
    Dear me, the stories, the acting are pretty poor. I struggled to stay the full length of each episode. The only reason I stuck with it was because the original series was different and mostly entertaining. My advice, do something else with your time.

    Watched the first two. I'm certainly not against gay couples being in movies, or anyone's sexual preferences, but the politics injected into the first two episodes is shameful. A demographic that amounts to 4.5% of the population in 100% of the first two episodes.... bleh how political do you have to be? I kind of liked the first episode, the second was kind of boring. I'm not going to watch a boring show that forces politics into what is supposed to be entertainment. No thanks. 👎🏼

    They made you think that this was the new Stephen Spielberg's hit, when is all the opposite, they had a grate opportunity to make this big and to take advantage of this series potential. Amazing stories is OK but is not what they promised us it was going to be.

    I used to watch this as a child and loved the show. But this version for Apple TV is terrible. The acting is terrible and I am not sure who did the casting but its just reallly not good. I'm not sure why they remade this so bad but oh well. I kept watching through 4 episodes but stopped after the last one.
