Audience Reviews for Rebellion: Season 1

    I love shows based on historical events, so this was a must see for me. The characters are great and it really moves. I love the glimpse in to 1916 Ireland.

    This was a fantastic story from the intimate perspective of individuals. Hiw it was actually done. Wow. Could watch again and again.

    Fabulous television.

    The first season especially is a really good way of depicting the various facets of the rebellion while showing the chaos and confusion throughout Dublin. I would have liked to see a little more politics, especially from Connolly, but thats the only reason I am giving this 4.5 stars rather than 5 starts I would give a film like The Wind That Shakes the Barley.

    I watched the first 5 episodes with a friend. I think it is one of the few shows that I want the "good guys" to be executed. The characters on the Irish side are totally unlikeable and in fact, make me root for their capture by the English. Because the writers and Irish characters have become more unlikeable with each episode, I'm at the point where I refuse to watch anymore, unless I know they're going to be killed by the English! That's quite a statement for me to make! Don't waste your time! You'll only end up frustrated!

    Binge worthy. Enjoy learning the history of Ireland during the early 20th century. A bit of a clunky transition between Season 1 and Season 2.

    Good show, enjoyable to watch. A little bit jumpy with storylines and character development. Sometimes it feels like you missed a scene. Very dramatic and interesting.

    Despite the critiques from so-called ���top critics��� who go no further than commenting on format I would say they use this critique as a template for anything Netflix. ���Rebellion��� is nevertheless quite an achievement. During Easter week, 1,600 men and women took over the Dublin Post Office and other central buildings, hoping it would spark a national revolt. Contrary to another ���top critic��� I feel the series does address this & I���m astonished others would suggest there was ���context avoidance��� & claims that it failed to ���examine the religious tensions��� which I have little foundation. I thought they did remarkably well in balancing a number of factors surrounding the events of Easter 1916. The last couple of episodes also provide great anticipation for season 2. Particularly during the line up deciding the firing squad fate of senior ranked rebels we hear ���Michael Collins - he���s a nobody���.

    good series on the irish uprising of easter 1916. it is of course a story, so the inaccuracies are forgiven. in general, the portrait of those crucial events of irish history is not bad, acting and production are also good. better than many other series

    If you have been to Dublin it is fascinating to see the locales used authentically in this fascinating series as backdrop where history moves from the museums and tour guides to real events. I personally loved this as a woman as the context of women moving towards the right to vote and change as a palatable undercurrent in all interactions. I am British and Irish so as is usual onerous systems will come down if they do not honor WE THE PEOPLE.
