Dickinson: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
Dickinson

Critics Consensus

Audacious and aspirational, Dickinson's bold blend of period-drama and millennial milieu definitely won't be for all, but those looking to break free from the doldrums of their viewing life may find some kind of hope in its singular vision.

Critic Reviews for Dickinson Season 1

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (23)

Silly, horny, a little sad, and just a shade frightening...It gets a lot wrong, but it gets the most important thing right.

Dickinson" seems ready to whisk viewers to a place they've never been before. But he promise is soon swept away, and "Dickinson" goes back to being just another humdrum teen dramedy suitable for The CW.

Top Critic

Dickinson shows promise in a number of areas -- among them striking visual language, an irresistible playfulness in the music supervision, and a sense of fun, if not humor, that pervades even scenes about mortality or misogyny.

Oct 31, 2019 | Full Review…

Within Dickinson is the still-nascent potential for something beautiful, waiting to burst forth like a morning glory, so long as its promise is cultivated with care.

Top Critic

It will infuriate staunch Dickinsonites, which is precisely what the poet, who often displayed a delicious sense of irony, would have wanted. What liberty a loosened spirit brings.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a wholly unsuccessful and tonally inscrutable piece of work.

Nov 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The dark comedy doesn't hide from its subject's tragic end, but makes hay out of it, producing a series that's both wildly funny, and also heartbreaking.

Nov 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Dickinson surprises you...one of the most optimistic chapters of TV you'll see all year.

Nov 12, 2019 | Full Review…

At least "Dickinson" is trying to be amusing. It just doesn't get off to a very successful start.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

You sort of wish that Dickinson had the courage to confront the sadness at its subject's core, or at least the society's perception of her, but it plays more like the SparkNotes version of her life; not particularly incisive, but invaluable nonetheless.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Brilliant teen series is destined for immortality.

Nov 4, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Dickinson gives us its version of teen drama club antics...This entire set-up is both brilliant and incredibly charming.

    I randomly started the first episode of this show and I was hooked from the first moment. This show really stands out for me, with its use of music and the personality of the characters are new and refreshing. I can recommend it without any doubt.

    Exactly what entertainment should be, it's absolutely fresh in every way possible.
  • Nov 10, 2019
    Love it, refreshing and compelling, I have a new obsession for Emily Dickinson.
  • Nov 10, 2019
    The whimsicality of the show is simultaneously strange and incredibly charming. Dickinson does a great job of making history appeal to a modern audience. (If people don't like this show they're probably either stuck up or harbour a secret dislike for brash female protagonists.)
