Another Life

Critics Consensus

A hodgepodge of science fiction homage, Another Life lacks the distinctive spark necessary to set it apart from the array of stories it aspires to be.

Critic Reviews for Another Life Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

Netflix's Another Life sometimes feels like it's trying to break a record for sci-fi fiction tropes.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Another Life is an unwieldy mashup of Arrival and any number of space-odyssey adventure serials, and struggles to maintain clarity or depth with either half of its bifurcated storyline.

Top Critic

Honestly, it has filled me with an exhilarating, hate-filled joy. There are moments when you feel like you're about to choke on the dumb, but then the soundtrack slams you with an ill-timed EDM number, and instead you start surfing the maudlin, cackling.

Sep 5, 2019 | Full Review…

If Another Life were a spoof called Instagrammers in Space, it would be a work of genius. Unfortunately, it takes itself deadly seriously, to the point of unwitting self-parody.

Aug 6, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm convinced that Another Life is a unique space drama, but unfortunately genuity does not always mean good, and Another Life fails to be an immersive experience like that of the genres it draws from.

Aug 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The entire series seems like a parodic sketch that could be titled "Instagrammers in Space," except that there isn't one single humorous moment. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Another Life feels frustratingly unsettled. For the first five episodes it seems to leap between everything from sci-fi horror to psychological thriller, pulling off neither particularly well.

Jul 31, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

But instead of using those themes and tropes to explore something new or exciting, Another Life is an unoriginal, jumbled mess filled with flimsy characters.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Occasionally, Another Life will land a decent surprise, or provide an emotional moment that resonates, but its main super-power seems to be making the perils of space travel incredibly boring.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Another Life has pieces of other compelling sci-fi properties, however there's nothing unique or substantial to build a foundation for this space saga to stand on.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's hard to call a sci-fi show ridiculous, but Another Life is just that.

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Another Life [is] a pleasantly cluttered new Netflix series that hybridizes Arrival, Annihilation and Interstellar into something less heady and more adventure-driven.

Audience Reviews for Another Life: Season 1

  • 6h ago
    Maybe 1 or 2/10. Unoriginal and boring. About the action/adventure rather than exploring grander themes. Falls to common worry about futuristic stories: are people in the future really this stupid? Could not finish episode 3.

    All critics are male, completely unfair. This show is great! Katee and Samuel have great chemistry, the plot is excellent, the show is stimulating and good sci fi. Keep it going, want to see more episodes absolutely. ps. this is the third attempt to add a review. Please check your web site.

    it's a bit slow, it needs to be more dynamic, but it's good.

    I watched half an episode and barf. They will really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one, woah boy. The biggest joke of all was the entire spaceship crew, with the exception of the leader/captain, appeared to be brainless high schoolers, no older than 16/17 with heavily made up faces (soap opera level) and perfectly coifed curls - in space, mind you. I don't think NASA would send a crew of what looks like hormonal teenage models on a life-altering mission to another planet. I would certainly hope that NASA would choose very experienced crew members, with a lifetime of background in research and space exploration, and who don't look and act like doe-eyed Bambi. I saw the 6% rating and thought that was generous.

    The alien ships are creative and I like seeing a very small blue star up close but after that this series is worthless...no more than space debris. The horrendous writing inluding a scene ripping off "Alien" and the acting are truly atrocious. The fact that Netflix let this abomination get this far should cost someone their job....all anyone needed to see was during its development. No one will trust Netflix if they keep putting out crap like this....cancel the next season immediately...there's no salvaging this disaster.

    Riddled with cliches, it's difficult to tell if this joyless, bleak show is really taking itself seriously or not.
  • Sep 03, 2020
    Lost in Space meets Stargate Universe??? I mean, instead of dealing with two distinct stories (one on Earth and the other in space), we are treated to soap-opera, old-time serial dramas with each episode a new disaster and divergent of the stories we want to have finished. Waste of both production and viewing time.

    I absolutely love Another Life and can't wait for season 2
  • Aug 23, 2020
    I wish I had read some of the reviews on this site before starting this series. I watched half an episode and knew already it doesn't have the integrity to hold up. The actors are bad, and the dialogue even worse. If you read this before starting - then do yourself a favor. You are not missing anything
