Another Life: Season 1 (2019)

Season 1
Another Life

Critics Consensus

A hodgepodge of science fiction homage, Another Life lacks the distinctive spark necessary to set it apart from the array of stories it aspires to be.

Critic Reviews for Another Life Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

Netflix's Another Life sometimes feels like it's trying to break a record for sci-fi fiction tropes.

Jul 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Honestly, it has filled me with an exhilarating, hate-filled joy. There are moments when you feel like you're about to choke on the dumb, but then the soundtrack slams you with an ill-timed EDM number, and instead you start surfing the maudlin, cackling.

If Another Life were a spoof called Instagrammers in Space, it would be a work of genius. Unfortunately, it takes itself deadly seriously, to the point of unwitting self-parody.

Aug 6, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm convinced that Another Life is a unique space drama, but unfortunately genuity does not always mean good, and Another Life fails to be an immersive experience like that of the genres it draws from.

The entire series seems like a parodic sketch that could be titled "Instagrammers in Space," except that there isn't one single humorous moment. [Full Review in Spanish]

Another Life feels frustratingly unsettled. For the first five episodes it seems to leap between everything from sci-fi horror to psychological thriller, pulling off neither particularly well.

Jul 31, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

But instead of using those themes and tropes to explore something new or exciting, Another Life is an unoriginal, jumbled mess filled with flimsy characters.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Occasionally, Another Life will land a decent surprise, or provide an emotional moment that resonates, but its main super-power seems to be making the perils of space travel incredibly boring.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Another Life has pieces of other compelling sci-fi properties, however there's nothing unique or substantial to build a foundation for this space saga to stand on.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's hard to call a sci-fi show ridiculous, but Another Life is just that.

    So saved it. Watched the first episode. No... I won't do a detailed review. Why? Just think train wreck. Writing and Directing and Acting train wreck. The decent actors there were absolutely wasted their talents on this. So to sum, story, trainwreck, directing, trainwreck, characters, trainwreck, whole thing? Wooo Woooooo CRASHHHH!!!! So I watched first episode. then started second. About 20 min in I think, What am I? A masochist? No. I am not a masochist." Delete. Don't know how it "developed, where it went". Don't care. I wrote an almost identical review for i-Land. How are these things getting greenlit?

    The science is painstakingly bad just as the drama. This show is for hate watching for people who ever opened a scientific book ever in their life to rant about how astronomically bad it is.

    So many naysayers and assholes alive today. Show is new and it has all the same growing pains as other shows. Is it perfect? No. Entertaining? Hell yes! Plot is new and that's hard to come by today. Its perfectly worth your time unless you already know you have a shit attitude. Then go take some pills and STFU.

    Unbelievably bad. Premises are unbelievable and immature. Hand picked crew? Obviously the space agency didn't screen the crew members for mental deficiencies......which you may need if you watch this smoldering pile of excrement. Oooh look, they get to say "fuck"......I'm not a prude I'm a foul mouthed opinionated crank....but it eludes comprehension how a scriptwriter thinks that all human emotion must include one of the characters slamming hands or hand on: Bulkhead Screen of control system Some other part of the ship And yelling "what the fuck?"........only thing it would be good for is frat parties...drink whenever they shout'll be lit in 5 minutes...which is good became then the show won't be as bad. Maybe. No, it won't. Utter shyte

    Absolutely horrible acting, screenplay, story, and direction.

    If you want grand writing and storylines you've never seen before- this is NOT the show for you. But if you a show that knows it's derivative of EVERY scifi movie/show that has ever come before and you just want entertainment, then yep this will work for you. Look you're going to read reviews that slam this program. That's from folks who think everything they watch needs to fresh and innovative. And yet the most popular shows on TV and in the movies are the same exact things repeated in new ways. This is one of those shows. It will have episodes that are directly Star Trek, Star Wars, Alien, Battle Star Galactica, 2001 and MANY more. And it seems that this is ticking off people- the same people who probably have loved Stranger Things, GLOW, and so many other nostalgia shows. This is just another version of that. I enjoyed it a lot because I accepted it for what it was- entertainment. Hope they make a season 2! And ignore the critical reviews as most are themselves are rip-offs [note two of them make up the same exact bad joke show name, yet are suppose to be different people?].

    Not the best show ever but it has it's fill of WTF moments. So far so good, definitely worth the watch.

    I like it when a show brings some new ideas. The effects are amazing as well as the plot. Hope to see Niko again!

    A futuristic space program that is meant to be immersive with a military level of discipline and urgency while providing a form of scientific intelligence within the script. However, you are given a script full of childish egotistical characters who lacks discipline who carry on like high school kids with no logical references to show that they are the worlds bests astronauts sent to save the planet. Due to this you lose that immersion and wonder how some of these thoughtless story steps past the editing stage to make it to the filming. Katee Sackhoff and Elizabeth Ludlow are the only 2 members of the cast that are doing a somewhat believable job, even with the garbage script they are working with.

    You know you're in for a fun ride when a ship flying through space needs to make a detour around cloud of dark matter. It's good that this comes up very early in episode 1 because you immediately loose any illusions you may have had about the show.
