News & Interviews for The Nevers: Season 1
"The Nevers'" inconsistencies can make for a maddening viewing experience - sending you from the edge of your seat to sprawled out on the floor, trying to find your eyes after they rolled out of your head... But I'd be lying if I said I'm done.
The world-building, at least, is extensive, and it's possible later episodes might benefit from having carved out so much narrative real estate, so many competing interests. But these early episodes are crowded.
When I finished watching, there were no characters I felt drawn to, or provoked by. I took in all the excess and atmosphere, all the flippant banter and brutal fighting, and I was left untouched.
The Nevers doesn't want for narrative, but it feels like Whedon throwing all the Buffy-lite ideas he had together ... and hoping some of it would gel.
Production values are top notch, the dialogue crackles and I am looking forward to the next episodes with eagerness.
The only thing that is for certain is that The Nevers rarely feels like a cohesive tale but one trying to cram too much into a shorter, marquee cable series run of ten episodes. While never a bad series, The Nevers is mostly a forgettable one.
This potentially provocative, supernatural sci-fi series is unfocused and uneven.
To paraphrase Coco Chanel: This is a TV show that should look in the mirror and take off one plot point before exiting the house.
The Nevers is muddled, overcrowded, and less-than-engaging despite its complex lore and flashy special effects.
If The Nevers does get to continue, having someone else in charge could be the special power it really needs.
The Nevers may get better when Whedon is no longer involved. It also may not. As it stands, the show is airing proof that Whedon's former proficiency, which insulated him from experiencing the consequences of his disturbing actions, has vanished.
Audience Reviews for The Nevers: Season 1
6h agoOne of the best new shows this season! Captivating in its wimsey, The Nevers delivers mystery, drama, and a bit of need more show with each episode.
10h agoI went in completely blind, I didn't watch the trailer, or read about the show beforehand, and I'm glad I finally stumbled upon a show that's fun, exciting, and interesting for 2021. I really like the characters, the whole premise, and I can't wait to see if my theories about the mystery in The Nevers are correct. Hopefully there will be a season 2!
10h agoDon't listen to the negative nelly's about this show. It's got all the right elements... Victorian England, badass lady fighting protagonists, mysterious as-of-yet-explained superpowers... Laura Donnelly kills it and it's just super fun romp. There's a reason the audience score is above 85%!!
2d agoCould not get into it at all. Was just plain boring. I normally enjoy this kind of show but this one was lacking. Not sure why, maybe the direction, cast or story.
3d agoSpellbinding. The characters and the story draw you in and each episode seems to have a mini-reveal. Most shows make you watch 22 episodes before a big reveal. The show is not afraid to make bold moves with characters in much fewer episodes. If they can echo the format it would be nice to see at least 12 episodes next season. Bravo cast of Nevers. Seems like the critics are more interested in how they feel about the creator than actually giving the hard working cast and other members of the credit credit for crafting something incredible.
3d agoThis show is so much fun. Steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy fun. Plus, Laura Donnelly kills it. :D
4d agoSuperb originality, great acting, keeps you engaged & focused. The unpredictability of the storyline is sublime. Innovation & creativity is championed more so with women leading the charge in a victorian era, a breath of fresh air. Its made for smart progressive minds & it doesnot disappoint.
4d agoIt's good, I recommend it.
5d agoUsually I like this type of show and time, but this just plain sucks and is all over the place. It's like a really dulled down weak all women x-men who all have crappy powers. Boring slow and just nothing to look forward to week to week.
5d agoI'm a big fan of this genre, but this series isn't really up to snuff. Sarah Donnelly isn't really believable as a brawling madwoman. Her role in "Brittania" was much more convincing (Brittania is amazing BTW). On the other hand... Amy Manson is massively FUN to watch in her role as the psychotic Maladie! Visually, this entire series is absolutely on-point. Every scene is beautiful, and every set / every prop is constructed wonderfully. The music is somewhat forgettable, almost an afterthought. Occasionally I find myself losing interest in the plot, and some of the writing here is paint-by-the-numbers stuff.
