Critic Reviews for Beyond Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

A little too much patience is required at times, but the first four episodes do include a brief glimpse into a pretty cool looking netherworld during Holden's chemical injections at the hands of Willa.

All of this postcoma supernaturalism is familiar, of course... That doesn't mean the territory can't be revisited effectively, and this show... has good bones... But when it most needs to be intriguing - at the start - it's just ordinary.

Jan 3, 2017 | Full Review…

As it is, Beyond's characters are so bland and their dilemmas so unremarkable that it may be difficult to make it through the show's two-hour pilot.

The same cannot be said for Beyond, which despite its extraordinary subject matter, remains firmly planted on the ground.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

It's not that Beyond is bad, it's that there is so much more on TV these days that is more worth your time.

Mar 14, 2017 | Full Review…

That's really where Beyond shines: a production value that elevates the standard and editing that injects electricity into the familiar. It's fun and safe, with a cast that sharpens the dull edges.

Jan 6, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The power of this series lies not necessarily in its plot and characters as much as its ability to send viewers hurtling through virtual reality without any more equipment than their own senses.

Jan 3, 2017 | Full Review…

It's tough to imagine adding yet another mysterious sci-fi show into the jam-packed schedule. But with Beyond you'll get a conspiracy, supernatural abilities, and the heart-warming family moments to give you those fuzzy feelings.

Jan 3, 2017 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Slow-moving supernatural thriller just intense enough.

Jan 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Much of this feels a bit awkwardly contrived, and most of it doesn't seem to pay off, at least through the six episodes I watched of the 10.

Jan 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Stilted acting and a thin initial story make this a tough watch to start.

    Both seasons are a must watch. Great concepts, incredible imagination, and amazing effects. There is nothing like it, and it makes it stand out from the rest of the shows. 10/10!!

    Teenage melodrama. Very tedious. Very little in storyline, most of it domestic drama stuffing with the most common line being "What's that supposed to mean?". Relatively little of the supernatural side of this story actually gets played out which makes it quite frustrating. Plus plot holes. The male lead, around which the story centres, seems to use about 4 main facial expressions for any given scenario with the most frequent of these being a kind of a wide-eyed scared/surprised/bewildered look, which after 10 x 50 minute episodes gets really tiresome. The other actors are all pretty good, special mention for Willa, Jeff, and Charlie who I found very enjoyable to watch.

    It doesn't start out strong but it does get worse and worse the more you watch. I wanted to like this show and I didn't really hate it until around episode 3-4. "heartwarming performances from a capable cast."-lol maybe if you were tripping on lcd. I've seen cheesy bad acting and there is bad and then there's "beyond" bad...

    This show is awesome!!!

    Just finish watching the final episode.... I totally Loooove It !!! It had exceeded my expectation and surprised me wholly , especially with the "Happy" and positive ending .... Before "Beyond"....I am actually tired of cliff hangers from other series where their main purpose is to hook audience with dis-satisfactory anxiety without a conclusive outcome, but Beyond had given us a sort of happier ending where the aim is to settle down a path/legacy of our main characters , to show them the good reward of a job well done, instead of putting them in an inconclusive horrible fate... before watching the final episode , i was predicting the ending will be either Willa or Holden drop from the bridge and one of them can't woke up.. needing the other to save them from season 2, but the producers grace us with such a happy ending where Holden and Willa united with the rest of other, while at the same time smartly lay out foundation for future adventure... If there isn't any season 2, at least fans will be happy for the safe journey of our beloved characters... and the possible future outcome is less apparent (fans can always have their own fan fictions about them), however since there is a season 2.. it gives fans a good feeling to look forward for the new awaited adventures ... instead of worrying about the characters from previous cliff hanger... kudos to the production of Beyond Next i want to talk about the lovable couple of Holden and Willa, without making it on purpose .. Holden and Willa appears to be one of the "Star-Crossed" lovers for my opinion, they need to experience through multiple difficulties whether they were emotional difficulties or physical difficulties to be together ... and their difference in personality also made it charming, Holden seems to be the more jolly guy who is not afraid to explore more emotion attachment with others, he can easily attached with other romance interests when Willa is not around, but at the same time, he will always remember the past with Willa and his sub-conscious tend to remind him who he truly hold dearest ... As of Willa, she is truly portrayed as someone who is out of the real world , due to her calm and serene composure towards whatever emotional trauma , Willa was willing to accept the possible outcome where Holden had forgotten about her, but she herself never forget her love and caring towards Holden... instead of telling/reminding Holden that they were a couple in the "Realm", she simply told Holden they knew each other without forcing the issue , Willa will calmly attending to other tasks when Holden was neglecting her but at the same time constantly check on Holden's status and never hesitate to put her life before his ... we can see how Holden's brother regard Willa with an expression of "Awe", an expression and admiration that told us how Willa was different from other girls he met...... Beyond has both the intriguing story line and good character interaction plus chemistry to make it an outstanding TV series
