Critic reviews for The Pyramid at the End of the World

This week's episode is the second part of a three-episode arc and felt like a bit of a filler episode, although it had its fun bits.

Beyond the fact that there should have been an easier solve ... there is no way the Monks and Bill should have been able to come to this agreement at all.

[It] is an engaging middle chapter, confidently told, that glides over its sillier aspects in the pursuit of portents of doom. It chimes with me.

"The Pyramid at the End of the World"'s escalation in its last fifteen minutes more than made up for the fact that two thirds of its run time was a bit ponderous getting there.

Showing just how conniving the monks are, this episode is a reminder of how much power humans have.

The politics present within the overall narrative, which deals with ruling over people, are increasingly relevant to the world in which we're actually living.
