News & Interviews for Back to Life: Season 1
[Daisy] Haggard's performance is a marvel, whether she's exuding vulnerability or dishing the sass. Used and abused but never quite de-fused, she propels Back to Life to the top tier of this season's newcomers, with ample help from a crackerjack ensemble.
Back to Life has a firm grasp on how capable people are of bizarre behavior at any given moment.
The best thing about the show might be that it's actually a lot smaller and humbler than these puzzle-box dramas.
Back to Life rides a fine line between sharply clever comedy and intensely dark mystery drama.
Mostly, it's an alternatingly funny/somber but always emotionally affecting series with something of a Fleabag vibe... and a terrific performance from [Daisy] Haggard.
Poignant British dramedy about post-prison life is mature.
The nicest thing about Back To Life... is the way it deftly but oh-so-subtly lambasts the gruelling crime dramas British TV has been synonymous with in recent years.
If Back to Life can commit to exploring its deeper ideas about identity, forgiveness, and mortality in its second season, it could quickly become of the best shows on television.
Bouncing unpredictably between somber dejection and daffy dark humor, Back to Life shouldn't work at all. Yet it does, wonderfully.
Audience Reviews for Back to Life: Season 1
Feb 06, 2021Very funny, intriguing, a little mystery. It asks: how do you put your life back together after you've done something horrible?
Jan 16, 2021I loved this series.
Jan 13, 2021This was charming and rivetting at the same time ... deeply challenging and surprising by measures, thought provoking, yet also entertaining. Best thing I've seen for a long time.
Jan 06, 2021This is the best "comedy" series I have seen in I-don't -know-when. It's reason enough all by itself to subscribe to Showtime. So funny. So touching. I absolutely loved it.
Feb 24, 2020Buena mini serie, con algo de humor negro y mucho de realidad. Es la historia de Mili, quien regresa a casa después de 18 años por un crimen que cometió a sus 18 años.
Dec 29, 2019This show was funny, dramatic and sad. I loved it!
Nov 28, 2019Not bad have only seen the first episode, I will continue
Nov 27, 2019The very best of British TV.
Nov 19, 2019Absolutely phenomenal. Excellent writing and producing for such a funny and charming take to such a set of extremely awful circumstances. It makes for an entertaining watch. A must see if you like witty-comedies, like Fleabag (whose producers actually produced it as I found out), and The Patriot on Amazon Prime, along with the countless other witty comedies in the last 5 years. This one's a great one. Also a great redemption story. Daisy Haggard was amazing. This is the first production I've seen her in that I know of and she cracked me up the entire time. Pure nonsensical at times, cringeworthy situational dialogue, and circumstantial reactions make the show. A gal down on her luck in to the highest power tries to make it back on her feet again in her mid 30s after spending 18 years in prison for a crime in a small oceanside town. I'll follow Haggard's work more closely as an actress from now on.
Nov 17, 2019Enjoyable and very very different. Amazing performance and great throwaway lines.
