Reverie: Season 1 (2018)


Critic Consensus: Reverie's tech-fable premise feels too familiar, but solid performances add a layer of humanity that keeps it from sinking under the weight of its influences.

Critic Reviews for Reverie Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

Reverie is brightly colored and nicely designed when it's tripping. But it's also all over the place, and probably not worth the overall trouble of trying to grasp.

It's not clear where Reverie will head next, but that uncertainty is part of the fun, and we're willing to go on this journey of endless possibilities as long as the show can keep the creativity coming.

Such a hodge-podge of clear influences from other science-fiction projects that it's more fun to pick them out than actually engage with the plot.

Reverie combines sophisticated technological concepts with elements of the human mind to show a new and perhaps even terrifying understanding of the subconscious mind.

There's a lot of potential here.

Mild sci-fi drama explores VR with a solid premise.

Overall, the story is interesting, the acting is great, and the premise remains intriguing. But the science itself could stand to be a little more grounded in reality to really hit the hard sci-fi button.

Jun 4, 2018 | Full Review…

This new drama offers the none-too-subtle message of "Get off your phones and take in the world around you." Wait a sec. I got a text. Where was I? Oh, yeah. Reality: let's embrace it.

May 31, 2018 | Rating: 4.25/5 | Full Review…

Audiences have gotten familiar with this kind of cautionary yarn, where technology offers a lonely simulacrum of human contact. But Reverie's pilot turns the idea toward optimism and earnest schmaltz - with extremely dull results.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a milquetoast flat water version of good scifi television, lacking in imagination, vision, or a competent CGI budget.
