The Commons: Season 1 Reviews

December 11, 2020
Boasts fine performances from Froggatt and Lyons and a scarily prescient view of our near future that will make you feel a bit squirrely while watching it.
December 4, 2020
Compelling and timely, and a cautionary tale that is probably too late anyway.
January 7, 2020
What's undeniable is that for every scene or concept where The Commons falls short, another one feels like it's plugged into a decade that has begun with flames so fierce that they appeared apocalyptic. Timeliness alone gives it a charge.
January 2, 2020
An intriguing and disturbing dystopian vision.
December 30, 2019
The story unfurls calmly, almost clinically, but smartly stays tight on the human notes without losing its way in the political and social themes.
December 27, 2019
Despite the "distant" in that regularly used turn of phrase, the "not-so-distant" future, the drama here feels unsettlingly immediate.
