Not a word is spoken as viewers feel the ennui settling over [June] like a toxic cloud.

Forever is a wonderful, truly special show.

While Forever brings Oscar and June's meandering story to a relatively satisfying conclusion, it's Sarah and Andre's heartbreaking tale that will stay with me.

Like a bubble, it might be a little slight in some ways, but there's something beautiful, peaceful -- perhaps even transcendent -- about watching it drift by.

For eight episodes, Forever has felt cynical about love, ungrateful even, but in its conclusion it shows a glimpse of its beating heart.

Although the series has "third act syndrome" it is an authentic take on eternal love. [Full Review in Spanish]

With a distinct brand of pitch-black humor, surprising cliffhangers and an eight-part season of 30-minute episodes, Forever is an easy binge. Go see what all the fuss - or, rather, hush - is about.

It's wistful and hopeful and Maya Rudolph does some world-class swearing in it.
September 30, 2018
Armisen provides a perfect foil, while Kym Whitley...brings big energy and Catherine Keener a delightfully contrasting sharpness.
September 28, 2018
Despite the profile of the actors, Forever has a real story, with soul, a touch of pessimism and also the occasional joke. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 24, 2018
A series that skilfully wrong-foots its audience repeatedly over the course of the season, and somehow manages to get both funnier and more poignant at every turn.
September 20, 2018
Forever is a wonderful, truly special show.
September 20, 2018
It is, after all, a mystery-of-the-week show modeled on the latest hot character trope, but it is surprisingly endearing and entertaining, with a long-form mythology that gets doled out bit by bit each week.
September 20, 2018
You'll know if this is a show for you within the first hour. After that? Things get even more interesting.

Forever provides Rudolph the opportunity to bring her considerable talents as a comedian... in a dramatic space. The trust is a thoroughly wounding performance that treat life's small joys and overwhelming tragedies with equal humanity.
September 20, 2018
It's Maya Rudolph who does the heavy lifting here, and the series is worth watching just to witness the broad range of emotions that pass over her like rainstorms.
September 18, 2018
Rudolph and Armisen are fantastic in this.
September 18, 2018
Surreal comedy has inventive, absurd laughs, language.

Forever is a show so set on being exceptional, profound, and moving, it occasionally forgets to just be entertaining.
