Nightflyers: Season 1 (2018)


Season 1
Nightflyers

Critics Consensus

Unsettling without being particularly scary, Nightflyers's low-budget aesthetics and over-reliance on homage betray its intriguing philosophical pondering and impressive creative pedigree.

Critic Reviews for Nightflyers Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (7)

Hopefully the big surprise with Nightflyers is that it gets better as it goes along.

Dec 3, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The way Syfy has chosen to air ['Nightflyers'] is one of the very few interesting aspects of this high-budget misfire.

Nov 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Nightflyers quickly pivots from an intriguing foray into hard sci-fi to a confounding slog through the most boring blackness of space.

Top Critic

While the pace is slow, there's something gripping about Nightflyers.

Mar 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The novella is at least fun, if messy and forgettable. The TV show on the other hand is dry, dark and disappointing. Avoid.

Mar 1, 2019 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

Don't even test out Nightflyers. Let it die as early and as inevitably as its entire cast.

Feb 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Nightflyers is a plodding derivative mess that never seems interested in giving its viewers anything to care about.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Way too many overused tropes, and not nearly enough charm in this blend of science fiction and horror. There's potential here, but only if the problems are fixed.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Much of what makes the show confusing and tedious is the work of series creator and chief writer Jeff Buhler, who has introduced a lot of needless malarkey into what Martin created as a relatively straightforward narrative.

Dec 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Tense, scary sci-fi thriller reminiscent of genre classics.

Dec 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The deliberately insane-making series could have done with less of an ongoing homage to Stanley Kubrick's classic The Shining and other masters of horror.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

A solidly done saga that takes Martin's brand of nihilistic realism and applies it to the world of science fiction.

Audience Reviews for Nightflyers: Season 1

  • Nov 08, 2019
    It could be better to bad they cancel it.
  • Nov 08, 2019
    What was that? Crazy mix of themes, not very well combined.
  • Oct 28, 2019
    The plot is confusing and boring at the same time. Probably the worst and most uninteresting Space Ship series in decades.
  • Oct 18, 2019
    ~ WOW ! I couldnt believe such a failed painful sjw sci-fi TV-show would be of any use for Humanity, but Gee... what a great free laxative !
  • Oct 13, 2019
    Absolutely devoured and loved this show! Cannot wait for the next season!!
  • Sep 30, 2019
    Literally impossible to be pulled in to the story right from thr get go. It begins and you have no idea of the setting, there's no character development, people are just thrown in and you're supposed to know who they are. How am I supposed to be emotionally attached and pulled in to the story if you don't elaborate on the characters/setting? It might be a good show, but it's not filmed well enough to pull me in. Sorry. 1/10.

    This show is so random.
  • Aug 26, 2019
    Surely one of the worst TV series about anything ever written
  • Aug 22, 2019
    I have the impression that the series is someone who has done automatic writing under LSD. O_o At first it's pretty consistent. The latest episodes are how to say...... A giant Harlem shacke. It looks like a disorganized nightmare. I... O-o. If you want the same thing but in a good way look at Brazil.

    35% Tomatometer? Really? It's absolutely no better than 'Another Life' - and the Audience gets it right. Once again - cliché after cliché, and contrived acting... and the backstory should be clarified - the science needs fleshing out...
