Critic Consensus: Forever is a gently harrowing and mirthful dive into the ennui of matrimony, elevated by Maya Rudolph's dazzling turn of not-so-quiet desperation.

Tv Season Info
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.
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.
It's like a mild-mannered reporter with a secret identity, but the secret identity is a mild-mannered marketing guy. The show sounds mysterious and alluring, until you know what it's hiding.
Things turn dark, then strange, then stranger, all the while managing to combine existential despair and sweet humour.
A curious, compelling treat, which in its first three episodes manages to weave an increasingly high-concept story without losing its initial low-key charm. Hopefully it'll carry on that way forever.
