Tales From the Loop: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Tales From the Loop

Critics Consensus

Though the show around them burns a bit too slowly, Tales from the Loop beautifully transposes Simon Stålenhag's paintings into moving art and provides a welcome dose of warmth and humanity with its sci-fi.

Critic Reviews for Tales From the Loop Season 1

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (9)

While it's nice not to feel like you have to keep watching to solve the mystery, more urgency could help the series carry a more lasting impact. There's a lot of beauty in this loop, for those curious enough to seek it out.

It offers meditations on man in a modern world beyond easy control. Which hardly seems like science fiction.

[Tales from the Loop] builds up a certain promise of adventure that never quite pays off.

Outstanding, understated, thought-provoking. This isn't the science-fiction of gadgetry, starships and visual effects but of ideas and concepts that all have a strong moral basis. The mood throughout is contemplative, the stories are all character-driven.

Tales from the Loop is a unique series in which everything happens: life, death, love, parenthood, longing and ageing.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

"...Loop" presents us with numerous characters who move in and out of each other's stories, taking the lead in one, serving as an extra in others. Each episode examines the interaction of residents with the Loop's abandoned detritus.

While the show itself gives little explanation of its genre elements, TALES FROM THE LOOP 's heart is its exploration of universal human issues

Jun 18, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

A unique, sideways take on sci-fi, this slow, beautiful anthology explores profound questions of human existence.

May 26, 2020 | Rating: 7.3/10 | Full Review…

Refreshingly, the strangeness that befalls Tales from the Loop's characters isn't treated like a big twist. Finding out which technology-fuelled dream or nightmare they'll encounter isn't the primary point, either.

May 22, 2020 | Full Review…

Tales from the Loop has heart. Lots of it. But if you're looking for the kind of science fiction fantasy that it's sort of marketed as, I think you will be disappointed.

Mar 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.7/5 | Full Review…

Tales From The Loop is one of the best narrative pieces of content we've watched this year.

Mar 27, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

There are moments where Tales From the Loop feels like the antithesis of feel-good, escapist television. The series is bizarre, understated, and genuinely surprising, and is firmly anchored by an impressively talented cast.

Audience Reviews for Tales From the Loop: Season 1

    Thoughtful, heartbreaking, and beautiful.

    Probably the slowest and the most painful show i've ever watched. I don't see nothing of new, beautiful or fresh in this pain. Dialogues are always the usual stuff; most of time you find yourself watching motionless panoramas while listening slow compositions. No plots, neither interisting stories. To avoid.

    A great sci-fi idea ruined by a slow, boring and uneventful pace. Almost painful to watch. What a waste, could of been such a great show.

    Slow, obvious and not at all suspenseful. Linear plot, no subplot. Hard pass.

    Finally some scifi that isn't made to appeal to the lowest IQ viewer. Really enjoyed this and am looking forward to season 2.

    A set of fascinating stories in the middle of a world where science fiction is in the background but at the same time influences the characters, using very clever theoretical concepts of physics in an analogical world and does not stop intriguing the mystery that surrounds this world and that the authors are in no hurry to unveil. The music and the cinema are magnificent. Highly recommended

    This show is incredibly intriguing. It sparks an incredible amount of emotion and deep thought.
  • Jun 22, 2020
    Made well, form over function. Feels like it's been made will a naturalism/humanism bleak point of view that everything is meaningless and painful but somehow beautiful. I didn't buy the empty world view but it was well made but ultimately unsatisfying as both entertainment and enlightenment. TV could learn from some of the film making but not much else.

    This was really good....Even though I don't know yet how I like the ending.
  • Jun 20, 2020
    Something different but beautiful.
