It’s got heart and charm and it is quite clearly and endearingly the result of one man’s sensibility and vision.

Does Dispatches From Elsewhere earn its quirkiness? It’s hard to tell based on the limited sample of episodes AMC made available to critics. But it’s not boring, and its optimism is appealing in and of itself. Still, it is a lot.

It’s an honest-to-god good vibes situation, across the board. In its first four episodes, the road may feel familiar and it may be a bit slow to get where it’s going, but it’s a lovely stroll all the same.

If it keeps a sharp enough focus on why its four heroes dove headfirst into the hunt — rather than on what could make it stranger — it might be able to yield some of that wild magic for its audience too.

Simone frequently urges her companions to look around and insists, "there's magic everywhere if you see it." A lot of people simply aren't inclined to believe that. As for those who do, glorious rewards will abound . . . we hope.

I don’t dare guess what the vignettes add up to, other than a show so lyrical with dream logic that it’s intriguing even when it’s not strictly successful.

There’s a thin line between “engagingly mysterious” and “indecipherable,” and Dispatches From Elsewhere vigorously skirts both sides.

Segel smartly keeps the seemingly labyrinthine story grounded by focusing on the hopes of four fragile characters determined to follow this rabbit hole into which they've stumbled until they find bottom.
