Here and Now: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Here and Now: Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (21)

It is impossible to watch Here and Now without suspecting it started out as a biting satire and somehow lost its sense of humour - or its courage - along the way. Even so, it retains a powerful capacity to provoke.

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.

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.

February 8, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

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.
