Reverie: Season 1 Reviews

May 30, 2018
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.

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.

A sort of psychedelic "This Is Us," to cite the network's new flagship - may be just what the dream doctor ordered.

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.

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.

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.

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
It's a milquetoast flat water version of good scifi television, lacking in imagination, vision, or a competent CGI budget.
May 29, 2018
It's all quite predictable and dull with a pilot episode that suffers under the weight of technobabble-filled exposition.

Reverie is not mindless, nor soulless. And, unlike [creator Mickey] Fisher's previous series, Extant, Reverie has a lot of long-term potential.
