Critic Reviews for Dispatches from Elsewhere: Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (12)

And yet I was not bored or frustrated as the characters' dreams became real, as their memories became open to alterations, as backstories were told in animation. Almost miraculously, "Dispatches" is oblique, but not off-putting.

An ambitious, strange drama with eccentricities that often overwhelm what works about it.

February 26, 2020 | Full Review…

"Dispatches From Elsewhere" has a few moments of genuine insight, mostly found through Simone, played by newcomer Eve Lindley, but a patronizing tone and grating execution limit the show's impact.

Lindley is a revelation, and Segel's beautiful, restrained performance is heartbreaking.

Lures the viewer in with compelling visuals and extraordinary acting.

What is going on is no clearer at the end of the first four episodes. That also doesn't really matter all that much. The series is as intriguing as it is heartfelt thanks to stylishly imaginative storytelling and richly developed characters.
