Years and Years

Critics Consensus

Years and Years scathingly critiques the present with a nihilistic projection of the future, leavening the devastating satire with a buoyant sense of humor and characters who are easy to become invested in.

Critic Reviews for Years and Years: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Years and Years: Season 1

  • Dec 19, 2021
    Maybe 4½ is a better reflection of the somewhat unsatisfying ending, but the show shocked me more than any other show.
  • Oct 19, 2021
    Sensitive to contemporary politics it is heartwarming and horrifying at the same time.
  • Sep 18, 2021
    Brilliant, must watch
  • Jun 08, 2021
    One of the best limited series that I had been watched in last years. The plot is so atual and the web of relationships, damn... fit like a glove with nowadays scenario. I have to admit that I struggled with some situations presented to us; several time the story pushed me back to reflect. The powerful of script is the responsible to cause this sort of feelings. However, follow this amazing family was a pleasure. For sure you'll find a little piece of you inside of the astonishing characters that was sad to say goodbye.
  • May 11, 2021
    Impressive. That sums it up.
  • Jan 31, 2021
    Debe ser probablemente la mejor miniserie de HBO, se siente como una secuela de películas, el argumento es muy original y en uno de los puntos de la serie donde pasa algo importante realmente te impacta y te hace sentir como los personajes, recomendadísima.
  • Sep 13, 2020
    A very realistic and therefore terrifying cautionary tale of where we might be going in the near future. Or, Black Mirror done right.
  • Aug 03, 2020
    Unnerving. Predictions of the future were easily within the realm of the possible.
  • Aug 01, 2020
    There were some people I would have liked to get some comeuppance but overall it was an incredible ride. Its a very darkly funny show, there were moments I actually cried but I enjoyed myself thoroughly throughout.
  • May 01, 2020
    It is our future, and it is really scary.
