Voice of Signor
Whenever Thompson appears, she makes the show feel most alive. Suddenly you realise why people become infatuated with these despots-in-waiting: they make for the most entertaining tele.
What makes this series effective is that not-too-distant horizon. It doesn't play out 50 years from now, but next year, then a few years after that, and then a few beyond that.
You will almost certainly find the show chilling and identify with the Lyons family's struggles to understand, and survive, forces they can't begin to control.
The anxious thrill of watching Years and Years comes not only from seeing the future unfurl in front of you, but also from watching how it ripples through the lives of this very modern, delightfully fractious family.
For a show to echo both Black Mirror and This is Us is not something I thought I'd ever see, but Years and Years is one of those daring high-concept shows that actually works.
Years and Years" offers plenty of stimulus to keep you moving through it...
I'm obsessed with this British miniseries following one family through a dystopian 2020s. It's completely harrowing, very nearly soul-crushing. Yet I cling to its tenuous optimism and profound beauty.
A loaded show that does not let the viewer rest. It's wonderfully executed. [Full review in Spanish].
A drama of a different variety. [Full review in Spanish]
Years and Years is uneven. But as an example of an art form trying to interpret the world we live in in something close to real time, it's something of a masterpiece.
Audience Reviews for Years and Years: Series 1
Jan 31, 2021Debe 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, 2020A very realistic and therefore terrifying cautionary tale of where we might be going in the near future. Or, Black Mirror done right.
Aug 03, 2020Unnerving. Predictions of the future were easily within the realm of the possible.
Aug 01, 2020There 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, 2020It is our future, and it is really scary.
Apr 17, 2020A harsh share of reality. A series that generates great impact, performances and remarkable characters. Real content and a director without fear.
Feb 24, 2020Es como ver un buen capítulo de "Black Mirror" de seis horas. Habla de la historia de una familia de cuatro hermanos y una abuela en un futuro cercano, la siguiente década, un tanto distópico. Bien llevado y con mucho de crítica a Donald Trump. Lo triste es que varias cosas de las que predice por acá ya las pasamos o aun las vivímos, así de mal andamos.
Feb 02, 2020Great show. Think Black Mirror meets This Is Us.
Jan 26, 2020As this series progresses, one can get very depressed about the direction. But then the grandma reminds her family that they should accept accountability, and the finale is both surprising and hopeful. This was recommended to my by one of my adult daughters, and I'm glad I binged watched the full series. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Jan 09, 2020Quite simply one of the best things I've ever seen. I don't know how anyone can criticize it at all. Not only does it present a scary, near -future scenario that is uncomfortably realistic feeling, but beyond the doom and gloom, it provides realistic hope and beauty at the end. I'm stunned by this series.
