Madiba is must-see television for anyone who questions the limits of human nature in pursuing a cause - in the name of freedom or even in the name of nationalism.

Top Critic

For all of its lackluster effect as drama, Madiba does have educational value - if you don't know Mandela's story, or the history of apartheid and its fall, there are worse ways to spend six hours than watching this digest of the highlights.

Feb 1, 2017 | Full Review…

The show's claim of being the definitive Mandela story is a little over the top, but as an introduction to the man, his country and what motivated him, it's not a bad place to start.

After this sobering reminder of the bitter suffering he and his countrymen endured, it's a sentiment that's as powerful as it is timely.

Mandela's life makes for a huge canvas, and Fishburne fills every inch of it that's included in the script.

Watching Madiba will give you chills, given our present circumstances.

Feb 1, 2017 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

Powerful, profound series about the life of Nelson Mandela.

Mar 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The six-hour Madiba is TV well worth watching this Black History Month.
