Audience Reviews for Angels in America: Season 1

    A dense, strange epic on philosophy, theology, and politics. Heavy viewing, but consistently compelling and never so incomprehensible that you'd need a degree in one of the subjects to figure out what's going on (unlike some other philosophical fiction works I've encountered). Not everyone's cup of tea by a long shot, because a lot of it can be hard to watch depending on your mentalities and whatnot, but if you can stomach it, highly recommended.

    Brilliant adaption as a TV movie of Kushner's Play by Mike Nichols. It combines opposites - classical Shakespearean soliloquy with contemporary realism, brings in the Devil next to God, roars at Nietzsche's from the other side - that perhaps existentialism - the grandson of Nietzsche brings up primal anger and sense of betrayal by God - not a sense of freedom. It is chaotic on purpose. It asks questions and gives no answers. It raises the issue of the meaningless of pain and suffering yet ends on a moment of hope.

    Loved the entire series for so many reasons--the wit, the casting, the acting, the grappling with difficult situations, the conflict when watching, the basically very human element at work and the difficulty in being a viewer who wants to intervene as if these characters are real people. Moving and extraordinary work,
