Critic Reviews for More Tales Of The City Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

The long miniseries doesn't skillfully balance all those plots, and author Maupin's fantastic coincidences are harder to swallow the second time around. But once you get into this Dickens-style epic, you're hooked.

The series does what it can with its tools and its ambition. [Full review in Spanish]

"More Tales of the City" is basically a good-hearted, decidedly offbeat - even goofy - soap opera that winds its way through the ultra-liberated 1970s in ultra-liberal San Francisco.

Jun 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The '70s San Franciscans of the miniseries muddle through complications and coincidences whose low probability and slow development are undeniably reminiscent of daytime soap opera.

Has about half the charm and little of the freshness of the original series.

It's really the small touches that make this six parter, which peters out a bit toward the end, truly memorable and commendable.

"More Tales of the City" initially has a lethargic pace that director Pierre Gang manages to pick up only after Nicholas Wright's Maupin-inspired script travels a series of hairpin turns, some of which are darkly funny, others quite touching.

Jun 10, 2019 | Full Review…

These rambling six hours capture maudlin romanticism with surprising charm and, occasionally, an uplifting urgency.
