Beyond: Season 1 Reviews

November 15, 2017
The same cannot be said for Beyond, which despite its extraordinary subject matter, remains firmly planted on the ground.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Slow-moving supernatural thriller just intense enough.

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.

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

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.

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.

Beyond... despite its extraordinary subject matter, remains firmly planted on the ground.

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.
