News & Interviews for Here and Now: Season 1
There are moments in Here and Now that threaten to turn the corner and reward a viewer's patience. But just as quickly, things bog down again.
There's just nothing here right now to indicate a meaningful payoff is coming.
Every time Here and Now threatens to allow its undeniably talented cast to develop characters, they do something that is so clearly a writer's contrivance that the whole exercise falls apart again.
Maddening Here and Now can also be engaging and provocative.
I'm not going to give up on the show right away; Ball is too good to dismiss, and I'm hoping he can pull it together. There's a lot here, and it needs to be sharpened now.
A self-righteous wallow in upper-middle-class Trump-era despair that tokenized its diverse cast, undermined its own progressive credentials and wasted two excellent leads.
A disappointing series with very little beyond the good work of its actors. [Full Review in Spanish]
Here and Now oddly never progresses beyond an unwieldy tale with supernatural distractions about exceptionally unlikable people.
Here and Now feels like an hour long version of woke chicken. How many hot-button social issues can we slightly graze at breakneck speed until the hour is over?
Alan Ball gets into the kitchen of his characters, transpires his unhappiness, lives from his mistakes and watches his evolution. [Full Review in Spanish]
It's a weird one, but in a good way. Most episodes play out like a cleverly written exploration of family life and Trump's America. But then something happens to turn viewers' assumptions on their head.
Audience Reviews for Here and Now: Season 1
Apr 06, 2020Most relevant tv series of our times. Too bad rotten tomatoes is as corrupt as is blind. All top critics who have voted down this show should read a book first, and reconsider every choice they've made in their lives, cause it's clear that they don't have the capacity to understand the depth of this world.
Mar 08, 2020It is an absolute shame that a second season wasn't made. I was totally engrossed with this show. They could have at least did a second season just to try and and finish the story lines. The show was relevant, well acted, and addresses so many issues that real people are dealing with today. Shame on HBO !!!!!!!
Feb 02, 2020Fresh, exciting and keeps you on the edge of tour seat
Oct 30, 2019This has to be one of the worst shows I have seen in ages. The writing is so incredibly hackneyed and cringe-inducing. Do not waste your time.
Oct 06, 2019Conceived, written and acted in the Hollywood bubble. I had to look past the high horse blocking my view 3/4 of the time to get to the 1/4 I thought was really interesting, just to find out the mysterious, spiritual climax was a very earthly volcano eruption. Really? I won't suffer through a second season.
Jun 01, 2019Completely agree with the critics consensus, best one sentence summary, "Here and Now clearly has a point it wants to make, but a nebulous plot and unfocused character development stand in the way of its potential" this very much describes this drivel of a season. Happy it was cancelled instead of wasting anymore of the viewers time. Allan Ball can be expected to deliver intriguing and thought provoking sometimes witty shows. Here and Now was not one of those.
Mar 30, 2019It's self-importance is comical, and it's progressiveness tries way to hard. It never comes off as authentic.
Oct 26, 2018Alan Ball, dont give up on this story! I agree with some of what others have said but there is SO much here that needs to be told.
Jul 30, 2018There were so many things i liked about this sErIes, even when they were in conflict. The concept of a perfect rainbow family at odds with each characters shortcomings, the clashing of cultures, coming of age stories in the context of a family so accepting that its good intentions were smothering. I loved Seeing duc open up to his fragility, and kristen Recognize her privilege. The supernatural elements were ambiguous Enough to keep me enthralled With the mystery, but Not so obscure as to be hoKey. What a disappointmwnt that this was not picked up for a second season, i enjoyed this series more than most things ive watched this year.
Jun 10, 2018nOT VERY GOOD!!! kIND OF DUMB, BUT WATCHED ALL OF SEASON 1 BECAUSE THE SPRING TV LINE UP WAS WEAK.
