      Previous Steve Greene indieWire When Calls is locked in, it's an especially effective slice of horror. That usually comes when the show sticks to the "less is more" side of things. B+ Jul 30, 2021 Full Review Alexandra Heller-Nicholas ABC Radio (Australia) Based on the French series of the same name, the star-studded scifi thriller series Calls is genuinely exciting television. 5/5 Apr 30, 2021 Full Review Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald Calls is instantly compelling as telephone calls between people in different parts of the US begin to paint a picture of a terrifying space-time anomaly and a more immediate, throat-ripping kind of menace. Apr 1, 2021 Full Review Maggie Lovitt Millennial Falcon Reviews For fans of conspiracy theories, mind-bending multiverse concepts, and those that question their own realities, Calls plays into all of your worst nightmares and it is a glorious journey. A Mar 27, 2023 Full Review Kiko Vega Espinof Calls has come at the right time. [Full Review in Spanish] 5/5 Aug 3, 2021 Full Review Andrew Murray The Upcoming Calls is a thrilling and highly entertaining viewing experience that brings an experimental format to English-speaking audiences. 5/5 Jul 30, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Sonya T Just started really watching Apple TV. This show was right up my alley. After the first episode each episode after that got better because you understood more. I love Sci fi so anyone who does would enjoy this. Didn't think I would be able to just watch a screen like this but something tells me the visuals would have messed it up. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/07/23 Full Review Alexandra R Excuse me? How is this being called groundbreaking??? It's a PODCAST! xxxD Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review William K A fantastic episode 1 descends into mediocrity and ultimately a terrible ending Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This should never have qualified as a movie or television show. This is at best a podcast or an audiobook. Don't think I would've wasted my time on an audiobook either. Not sure how this is receiving any decent critics ratings. Was this performed during Covid when actors had to phone in their acting when studios were closed? Very disappointing. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Took me by surprise. Very compelling. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Brandon D FINALLY something fresh! This is the first time I've been so locked into a series that I forgot the world was still going on around me. Calls may appear to be a glorified podcast but it's so much more than that; the sound design, visuals, voice acting... all of it is so well done and pieced together in perfect harmony to keep your attention locked to the screen and on the edge of your seat. I am so thrilled to have found this gem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/29/21 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
