Critic Reviews for Babylon Berlin Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (4)

It's all wonderfully gripping, and Bruch has the most pained, expressive eyes you'll see all year.

Babylon Berlin is much more of a landmark television series than anything else the streamer has offered in months.

This is an exhilarating, enrapturing series about the start of a watershed. We cannot know where we are going without knowing where it all began.

Trying to keep the threads straight can be tough, but Tykwer and friends deftly sidestep clichés (you won't see a Nazi uniform until the series is practically over) and the characters carry us through.

Even though we know where history is headed, our sympathies get confused, just as they might have if we'd been living in Berlin at that historical moment.

Aug 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Everyone, from the leads down, is in some way flawed, compromised, disappointing.

Jun 24, 2018 | Full Review…

While politics is integral to what it is about - right down to its existence - it's so much more than just a cautionary tale. Babylon Berlin is mostly a police thriller, made with immense care - especially with regard to the period setting.

"Babylon Berlin" offers mesmerizing television, succeeding both as absorbing mystery and exquisitely produced historical drama.

May 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Babylon Berlin tells a very good story, yet it's even better at conjuring a rich and fascinating world.

Feb 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Irresistible for many reasons, but one is the way it intersperses a macabre portrait of a doomed society with glints of its promise...
