      Previous Scott Bryan It just feels like there is thirty percent too much plot and rabbit holes not connected to other plot lines. ... It is just a bit too weighted down. Jun 14, 2021 Full Review Wenlei Ma The Nevers has a lot going for it but it's a distillation of Whedon's best and worst filmmaking impulses. It needs someone with a more disciplined eye to cut half of its many dangling threads and subplots. Jun 5, 2021 Full Review Suzi Feay Financial Times If ladies fighting in their nighties is your thing, then fill your button boots. 3/5 May 25, 2021 Full Review Bree Fowler CNET I loved the kickass, funny, complicated characters and the fact that I just couldn't figure out who the real villains are. I keep looking for another show like this. So far, nada. Mar 30, 2023 Full Review Therese Lacson The Beat [In] order to hold on to this show past just its one season, and in order for it to survive past the Joss Whedon shadow, it needs to make major changes. Oct 9, 2021 Full Review Audrey Fox We Live Entertainment Truthfully, The Nevers has a lot to recommend it. But as a busy, frequently over-stuffed period sci-fi epic, it has an uphill battle ahead of it. Aug 23, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Dawn J I love the nevers and don't understand why the entire (part 1 and 2 are not on any kind of real release. It's creative and stong and compelling Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/25/23 Full Review Eric U The old too quality HBO is gone. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/29/23 Full Review Maxima I It has potential but I feel like the writer is afraid of walking through the less beaten path... Decent plot, good production, fresh genre, theme structure is old tho. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/28/23 Full Review Danielle D The potential was all there, steam punk feminist sci-fi. You couldn't ask for more. But then the production and release of the last 6 episodes screwed it up. I really got into it, and was left hanging. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/01/23 Full Review Hunt G First six episodes were excellent, the last six had their moments, but it was a narrative mess, far too much, this happens with repercussions, nope fake, we are gonna cancel those out, then do them again and cancel them again. I enjoyed it, but it had a bad case of "we need water to put out the fire that I started so we would need water to put it out". Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Dan K Great story telling and the season finale plot twist tied together a lot of clues from across season 1 - an amazing season finale!
