Critic Reviews for Wanderlust Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (11)

Of the pleasures of Wanderlust -- and there are many -- the purest is watching Mackintosh and Collette dig into the many complexities that emerge from this premise.

Wanderlust lists the definition of its title underneath the title card in every episode -- "strong longing for, or an impulse toward wandering" -- but it is never lost. Not with Collette at the wheel.

It's almost a romp, as we follow the sexual and emotional arcs of each character on the show, including his coworkers and her clients. Light, but meaningful, the show looks into the complicated interplay between intimacy and sex.

It is nothing but great that this series has been made.

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

If married, middle-aged people want insights into their own sex lives, or lack of them, they don't have to have them explained - or "youthsplained" - by people in their early thirties, who, one hopes, have the truth ahead of them.

Wanderlust is likely to trigger a lot of conversations. As for the solution adopted by Joy and Alan, don't necessarily try it at home.

Sep 5, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

In particular, episode 5 is phenomenal television, featuring one of the best scenes I've seen on any screen - big or small - this year. Collette and guest star Sophie Okonedo deserve awards. I watched that episode twice, it's so damn good.

Its exploration of an open marriage explores some interesting questions. However, it opens itself up to other needless subplots that bog the proceedings down.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Lots of sex and frank talk in beautiful grown-up drama.

Oct 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

At least Wanderlust gets most of it right, and has a hell of a time getting us off.
