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.

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.

    It's a break from real life. The visuals are awesome, the characters are easy to get familiar with, and u feel like you are part of their crew at a certain point. I liked also Muse who are present in the soundtrack of the show. Waiting for season 2 !

    I think the premise of the show is quite great and i like the cast. The CGI is a little subpar and the acting can be a bit cringy. Overall though it's quite enjoyable

    Pretty good show, I recommend watching it, like most new shows the first few episodes are a bit slow and need time to establish. However, after that it ramps up.

    Half way through the first season and it is pretty good, plenty of action, gore and drama, well thought out characters...will be a shame if it doesnt at least get a season 2

    Absolutely stunning!!!!! The last two episodes went so fast and open to a new and great season (I hope) Must SEE

    I have only watched two episodes so far, so I really do not know if it is appropriate to write a comment on the series, but based on those two episodes, all I can say is that "Another Life" is just not believable. The setting is not the issue. Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair are doing a decent job, but the rest of the characters..., NO! The first thing that came to my mind was "why on earth would they send a crew as incompetent as them on a mission to defend or save the earth?" They do not seem authentic, or even capable for such a delicate mission. All they do is whine about the situation all the time, constantly questioning the capability of their crew leader. One would think on a mission as serious as that, they would put aside their personal discrepancies for the sake of mankind, but no..., these spoiled, social-media-obsessed brats seem to not even care about it. No, thanks!

    I have to say, that a first I absolutely hated this show, and quit watching for a week after a few episodes in because I thought it was too stupid to endure. But I came back and in the end I'm glad I did. I can sort of see it's meant to be outlandish now (though I don't think that aspect is done well). Somehow though everything got better in the latter half of the series, both the plot and the acting, and I finished season 1 liking the show after all. I liked it enough that I am really hoping there is a season 2 now.

    Kate Sackhoff is good enough to carry a terrible TV show; but not this one. Episode 4, Jesus Christ.
