Tales From the Loop: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Tales From the Loop: Season 1 (2020)



Critic Consensus: Though the show around them burns a bit too slowly, Tales from the Loop beautifully transposes Simon Stålenhag's paintings into moving art and provides a welcome dose of warmth and humanity with its sci-fi.

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (10)

While it's nice not to feel like you have to keep watching to solve the mystery, more urgency could help the series carry a more lasting impact. There's a lot of beauty in this loop, for those curious enough to seek it out.

It offers meditations on man in a modern world beyond easy control. Which hardly seems like science fiction.

[Tales from the Loop] builds up a certain promise of adventure that never quite pays off.

Outstanding, understated, thought-provoking. This isn't the science-fiction of gadgetry, starships and visual effects but of ideas and concepts that all have a strong moral basis. The mood throughout is contemplative, the stories are all character-driven.

"...Loop" presents us with numerous characters who move in and out of each other's stories, taking the lead in one, serving as an extra in others. Each episode examines the interaction of residents with the Loop's abandoned detritus.
