Extrapolations: Season 1 | Ratings & Reviews

"In spite of its best intentions, the show's reach ultimately exceeds its grasp."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"It is an ambitious science fiction story, but it makes room for the more intimate moments of humanity."


"Extrapolations squanders an urgent subject and star-studded cast with dour, preachy drama..."


"This big-budget, A-list-stuffed dystopian vision has occasionally shaky execution, but worthy intentions, and some intriguing future-concepts peppered among the sillier ones."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Burns may preach to the save-the-planet choir here, but he knows that the only way to make a lasting impression is to put on a good show."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"The perfect nightmare-inducing drama to fill that Last of Us-sized hole."


"Starry but stodgy..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Meryl Streep voicing a whale can’t save (this) eco-crisis drama..."

Financial TimesFinancial Times

"Even Meryl Streep can’t save this convoluted eco drama."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Unlike climate change, we can probably ignore this one."


"Keeping the characters flat and underserved... makes the lavishly depicted world they inhabit feel less like a matter of concern."


"Sappy and sermonising."


"There’s a lot to admire about the show’s ambitions, even if they’re not fully realised."

Chicago TribuneChicago Tribune

"The show is at its strongest when it sticks to tangible outcomes and keeps emerging technology on the back burner."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"Humane, carefully constructed but often frustrating..."
