Critic Reviews for Osmosis Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It's for those who have had enough of dead-end relationships on the many dating apps available, who are convinced virtual reality has killed feelings, and who believe they no longer have any meaningful choice in partners.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The love stories, the moral debates generated by the advancement of technology and the internal debates within a company make Osmosis interesting. [Full review in Spanish]

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Smart sci-fi tale is briskly plotted if visually drab.

Apr 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Swipe right on Osmosis. It's too soon to tell if it'll be your Netflix-binging soulmate, but it seems worth a few more episode-dates to figure it out.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

That level of nuance and awareness makes Osmosis start out thoughtful and refreshing, though two episodes in, it's difficult to tell whether it will expand on its insights, or squander them.

Audience Reviews for Osmosis: Season 1

  • May 29, 2021
    It shouldn't have been canceled. It was one of the best examples. Osmosis was canceled because it wasn't advertised until the One
  • Mar 28, 2020
    Is a really good sci-fi TV show, with great performance of the actors
  • Nov 19, 2019
    I loved it! Good concept, good casting. I like the soundtracks too
  • Oct 09, 2019
    I really loved this show. It was so smart and original; even though similar concepts have been done before, I promise the twists are not what you would expect!! I loved the typically french understated acting as well. Some parts were a bit too reminiscent of Legion, Stranger Things and Falling Water in terms of the visuals, but regardless it was a great show.

    The story is cerebral rather than physical, overall. Moral issues arise, about messing with human nature via an AI dating app
  • Jun 15, 2019
    I realized some continuity errors. Nevertheless, the idea the series develops is really interesting. The characters show us frivolous humanity that's desperately looking for love. The focus not only given on technology but also in people, makes this series different between the sci-fi genre (which are rendering dystopic or post-apocalyptic future due to despicable technology). Osmosis gives us hope about how humanity is going to be like -maybe soon- and fusions both sides: tech and humans, making an accurate approach of immanence between them. The one we all have been breathing in the last times and are going to be breathing deeper in the future.

    Hard to follow, Storyline is weak, most acting is horrible.

    Stick to the end... it will blow your mind !

    Story is pretty good, I like the plot developments enough to want to see more, but man the acting is bad. I don't know if this is the usual acting style in French movies or if they simply have a very inexperienced cast, but most of them (including the main sister and brother characters, sadly) are so bad at it I feel like I'm looking at first-generation plastic androids trying to appear human and failing almost completely. And it doesn't help that many outfits worn by the female characters look like extremely pretentious 'haute couture' stuff you'd only ever see at fashion shows, not on regular people out in the world, least of all on people working in technology.

    Black mirror plagiat and not "inspiration". Bad acting. To much " coolness" sometimes we feel like watching a perfume advert or a music clip. Too much "french touch", excessively clichè. Too much hipsters.
