Critic Reviews for Little America Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (17)

And, thanks to the wise and humane writing, all of the episodes have the reach and breadth of full-length movies.

A gorgeously human series.

Jan 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Little America is smart, nuanced television.

Jan 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Perhaps most importantly, "Little America" avoids becoming patriotic propaganda not by disparaging the United States and its policies (which it rarely does), but by selectively emphasizing what America can offer at its best.

Top Critic

The scope is modest, but the stories are large in a representative way, and sometimes funny and sometimes tragic.

Feb 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Its ambitions aren't flashy, but Little America leads with a clear investment in the kinds of people often relegated to the background of other shows. It's a smart, empathetic choice.

Jan 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Little America's greatest strength is its commitment to the stories we don't hear.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A joyous collection of portraits of immigrant experiences inspired by true stories.

Feb 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's the best show Apple has produced so far, but it's also the most misguided. It almost hurts, considering the talent behind Little America.

Jan 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Beautifully authentic anthology of immigrant stories.

Jan 27, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The key is in the chosen tone, without being showy or excessively sentimental. There's no big declarations other than the entrance to those private worlds, always seen with the eyes of those who arrive to stay. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

At its high points, the show is beautifully uplifting, never saccharine or melodramatic. It steers away from the overtly political or distressing, but characters' quiet heartbreak in the face of adversity makes for some of the most evocative scenes.

Audience Reviews for Little America: Season 1

    Ugh! What was Apple thinking when it signed up this show. Absolutely terrible.
  • Feb 16, 2020
    I have not understood the critics on all the Apple TV plus shows, I signed up for it not expecting much to be honest but have yet to find a show that wasn't extremely well done and engaging. A common thing I've felt is many seem to take an episode or two to really get their groove going but after that its glorious. This show Little America was one I didn't know what to expect when starting it, I finished it the day it came out and re watched it again twice since. The episodes are sooo well crafted and the stories they tell are truly moving and all the cast members deliver performances to match the incredibleness of the people they are playing. This is def a must see show, not just of Apple's library but of any tv show period

    A great way to see the difference between lifes. Elegant and fresh, easy to watch.
  • Jan 26, 2020
    It opened up my vulnerabilities and most importantly, the stories of each character touched my heart dearly. I would have said the episodes that talked about the Iwegbuna and Beatrice were my favorites courtesy of my African origin, but the last episode about Rafiq nailed it all for me because in many ways more than one, it's story is universal for every where person out there.

    Incredible storytelling and film making! And the actors are amazing! I can't get enough of these vibrant episodes.
  • Jan 25, 2020
    So far I've watched three episode and they have all been very enjoyable. Seeing a small window into some immigrants lives has been enlightening and entertaining.

    Such a refreshing take on immigrant lives in America. Brilliant stories depicted in high quality production and screenplay. Give it a shot and you won't regret it! So far, the best show on Apple TV+

    All are different and all are very enjoyable!!

    Por fin los Apple Tv le pegaron a una. Esta serie, de 8 capítulos de media hora, habla sobre distintos casos de inmigrantes en EUA, llegados de diferentes partes del mundo, que lograron salir adelante en campos muy diferentes. Todas las historias son inspiradas en casos reales y están muy bien dramatizadas.

    This is the great storytelling Apple was talking about! Great series, been waiting for something like this.
