Another Life: Season 1 (2019)

Season 1
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 (17) | 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…

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]

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 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.

Audience Reviews for Another Life: Season 1

    The worst show I watched in a while its so bad it is almost good, but only almost.

    If we want a season 2 we have to speak louder. This Is probably one of my favourite shows I have watched, and I have watched a lot of tv shows. The story is so good and breathtaking. I love the diversity of characters and I love the connection I felt when someone got emotive. I think this show is a must see for everyone. I think it's getting bad reviews, because it's so different. I fell in love with the characters and the story, and would love and hope to see a season 2,3 etc. The visuals are also beautiful, and the last thing I want to say is that this show is so fresh. Another reason for bad reviews is that this show is too good for 2019. Wait till 2020 and I think it will turn around. Netflix needs to stop looking at reviews and release what they want. I want this masterpiece to be continue and not get cancelled. This is better than Lost in Space, The Society and Stranger Things.

    The 1960's version of Star Trek has better special effects then this show! What is their budget? $100.00? The space suits look like toys you buy your kids for Halloween! And the ship's set looks like something built from Home Depot stuff!

    Waiting for the second season

    So Earth puts its best team together to go out into deep space to save us, and they turn to have the maturity and self-control of a bunch of school kids. One-dimensional characters and cliché narrative made episode one a huge yawn and for me there will be no episode two.

    I really wanted to like this, but not even Katee Sackhoff and Tyler Hoechlin make the show watchable. Netflix, seriously? Go take notes from the Expanse or something.

    Why is that the narrative lets you down from the beginning. Why would you have a highly trained professional, trying to save the world, leading a crew of bitching adolescents! They show stress during the first crisis! I love Katee Sackhoff from her days in Battle Star Galactica but she's been given a lemon with this one!

    Whats with Netflix and its writers? Are they hiring out of middle school? The Michelle character has got to be the worse piece of garbage I've seen in 30 years. So sad another Netflix failure. Too many Netflix .
