Audience Reviews for For Life: Season 1

  • Aug 20, 2021
    I'm in love with this show! Really! It's so amazing!
  • Apr 04, 2021
    Great storyline as always 50 Cent makes a great villain. Inspiring story
  • Feb 12, 2021
    Was a great show until they started all wearing mask and persuing the government's agenda of forcing people to wear them.. Once I saw everyone wearing masks like retards this show went from my favorite show to crap.
  • Jan 30, 2021
    This Show makes up so much crap and buts blame on Correctional Officers. Also this is not realistic at all. It demonizes law enforcement and makes some of the most dangerous people look like they are victims instead of showing the victims they hurt.
  • Nov 02, 2020
    You want to see this show! It's amazing! It's captivating from the very first episode!
  • Jul 22, 2020
    Excellent series - my appreciation for the show increased as I watch further episodes. It is unfortunate that most reviews seem restricted to only the first two episodes
  • Jun 20, 2020
    I've come to really enjoy the season, a empathetic story whose characters have grown throughout. I'll be looking forward to season 2
  • Jun 12, 2020
    This is one of the most powerful TV dramas I've ever seen. The content, being so relevant to today's climate, the perdomances, being so powerful and emotional, the writing, being so artful and honest. It's really a revelation. It shows that even though there are no new ideas, there's always new ways to tell the same old story!
  • May 27, 2020
    Excellent pour le moment, j'attends la saison 2 avec impatience.
  • May 21, 2020
    We don't care about the low viewership numbers. Because it's ABC and the audience of this show isn't tuned in to ABC . I came here so critics and Network personnel can see that the fans WILL DEMAND SEASON TWO . GIVE US SEASON TWO
