      Nate S I need them to make all three books, so 5 stars! Looking forward to season two Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Tom A This show has a amazing storyline with great twists and turns. You will need to put your phone down and pay attention but it is worth it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Christy P The directing was amazing but the plot actually loses its sense after a few episodes... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Paul M Started very interesting then took a different path and did not finish strong. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review NoneOfYour B Show was well done and better than the Chinese version. I just have real problems with the story itself. For supposedly being very scientific, there are glaring holes in the plot that cannot be overlooked Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Bruce L Non book reader here. Episodes 6 and 8 prevented this season from getting to the "great" level for me. Still good television and I'm glad I watched it. Still wish David & Dan didn't ruin seasons 7 & 8 of Thrones though :( Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Verne Gay Newsday Visually spectacular and a good cast — Wong in particular. Rated: 3/4 Apr 8, 2024 Full Review Wenlei Ma The Nightly (AU) Ambitious, towering and crammed with big ideas about intellectual curiosity, exploration and our place in the universe while still managing to tell intimate stories about human relationships. Apr 1, 2024 Full Review Shirley Li The Atlantic I get a kick out of realizing which portions of the trilogy the show’s creators have chopped up and rearranged, delighted to be shown parallels among characters... and still find Benioff and Weiss to be great at writing memorable, economical dialogue. Mar 25, 2024 Full Review Austin Burke Austin Burke/Flick Fan Nation It asks a series of interesting questions and presents a string of intriguing SciFi ideas in the process. It results in an engaging and mysterious series that will keep viewers invested from start to finish. Rated: 8/10 Apr 12, 2024 Full Review Fico Cangiano CineXpress Fascinating ideas and concepts are presented in an intriguing, accesible and entertaining way, while the human characters (scientist core group) leave a lot to be desired. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Apr 9, 2024 Full Review Ana Yorke PopMatters 3 Body Problem remains grounded in human drama. Apr 8, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
