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.

Tv Season Info

The Bayer-Boatwrights, a Portland-based multiracial family, gather together for the 60th birthday party of patriarch Greg Boatwright (Tim Robbins), a party that his wife Audrey Bayer (Holly Hunter) meticulously planned. However, Audrey's careful planning falls apart when Ramon (Daniel Zovatto), one of their adopted sons, begins hallucinating the figures 11:11. Ramon's subsequent therapy sessions with Dr. Farid Shokrani (Peter Macdissi) bring the Bayer-Boatwrights and the Shokranis together so they can help each other with their respective crises. The "Here and Now" cast also includes Jerrika Hinton as Ashley, the Bayer-Boatwrights' adopted daughter; Joe Williamson as Malcolm Collins, Ashley's husband; Raymond Lee as Duc, the Bayer-Boatwrights' other adopted son; and Sosie Bacon as Kristen, the Bayer-Boatwrights' only biological child. Rounding out the cast are Andy Bean as Henry, Ramon's boyfriend, and Marwan Salama as Navid Shokrani, Dr. Farid's son and Kristen's friend.

Critic Reviews for Here and Now Season 1

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (23)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Here and Now oddly never progresses beyond an unwieldy tale with supernatural distractions about exceptionally unlikable people.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

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]

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

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.
