Critics Consensus

Though it can never live up to its parent publication in terms of purpose and cachet, many of the segments in The New Yorker Presents are classy, polished, and culturally educational.

Critic Reviews for The New Yorker Presents Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13)

All four of these pieces, and especially Demme's mini-documentary, are capably done, but they feel like supporting materials you would want to come across as bonus content on The New Yorker website.

Its highs are investigative journalism at its very best, work that's strong enough to justify future seasons... If viewers stumble upon a segment that lags-well, that's what the fast-forward button is for.

Guided by its values and standards, the publication continues to be a leader and succeeds with such a challenge.

The pilot was undeniably fascinating, but the potential of The New Yorker Presents to become more of a staple in television or online programming is even more exciting.

This is the most original of Amazon's productions: an attempt at a magazine-style show based on nothing less than The New Yorker.

It'll make you feel a little classier and smarter as you sit on the couch in your pajamas.

The pilot episode delivers quality, and a fresh and entertaining perspective that has the power to educate with limitless potential.

Like so many efforts to turn books into movies, in the attempt to bring the spirit of the New Yorker to the screen, something got lost in translation.

The great thing about this series is that it is like a visual equivalent of an episode of This American Life, a handful of stories and elements joined together for the NPR tote bag set.

Getting in bed with The New Yorker is certainly going to be "on brand" for lots of Amazon subscribers, so it's a fine idea.
