Lore

Critics Consensus

Subtle and spooky, Lore's horror-laden history lessons take on new life on the small screen, though it sticks too closely to the podcast's original format to truly distinguish itself.

    Lore is a great television adaptation of a podcast. The creepy atmosphere is top notch, the stories are dark and passed a clever message. It has some good twists in some episodes. I think there is just one or two boring episodes in this season. All of the others were great.

    I loved the first season. I will rewatch it more than once. It has a particular style you don't find on other shows. They destroyed all of that in season two so enjoy the 6 episode arc. Season to is a different show.

    Seasons 1 is, by far, better than Season 2! No more history lessons or narration in S2.

    Genius - Fantastic stories that couldn't possibly be true except the narrator is there to let you know that the world is actually much creepier than you ever dreamed it to be... The only peeve that I have is the narrator himself speaks like a robot. High and low tones in his voice at the wrong part of a sentence makes him sound like an old 1980's speak and spell... but other than that the show is great, love it.

    Found this show by accident and really glad that I did. Interesting stories told with a horror NPR type of vibe, a combination of history with superstition. I really enjoyed the combination of live action using actors with the narrator to tie everything together. Fun watch this halloween season.

    Three episodes in. We get it, everyone in the past was sexist and horrible. Every one of these “horror” stories has to include a tangent about feminism or how horribly women were treated. It has nothing to do with the stories and no basis in fact (for example, a story about Robert the doll had to include an aunt haranguing a mother about the evils of being a suffragette and quoting the Bible to the mother who is —of course—portrayed as being innocently patient with the backward ways) and instead is a tangential extrapolation by the writers. Despite this, the same point is brought up nearly constantly. I can handle when the preachy points are directly related to one story (as in “Black Stockings”) but when they make it a common sermon in episode after episode...I get tired of it. Additionally, they constantly interrupt the “main story” with others that are along a loosely related theme, and then jump back and forth as if to hide that they don’t actually have enough material on the topic at hand. I love myths, legends and paranormal stories, and yet this series is entirely unpalatable.

    Without the annoying voice, it would be a hit, but the horrible horrible narration voice it's a feature hard to overcome

    This works so much better as a podcast than a tv show.

    It's pretty much poo, all the way around.
