Nikki and Franklin are happy in their marriage, but when... More everyone they know starts taking the soulmate test, they must ask if their relationship is enough.Less
Bill Skarsgård (It), Sarah Snook (Succession) and Kingsley Ben-Adir (The OA) feature in this sci-fi romance anthology set 15 years in the future where a scientific discovery has led to a test that can find anyone's soulmate.
What's great about Soulmates is that focus on the practical. It's a new way to explore an old subject regarding romantic relationships and how we search for partners.Full review
The result is a show which echoes the packet handed to each Soul Connex patient with their results: expensively packaged, intriguing in its outlines, the character distant but familiar, the parts seemingly aligned. But perfection devoid of intimacy is still a flat page.Full review
The ensuing [first] hour, anchored by a terrific Snook performance, is painful and revealing, finding pockets of devastating insight tucked away in the dark corners. ... From there, “Soulmates” gets more lost in the weeds of its ambition.Full review
“Soulmates” tells some of the stories one might immediately expect from the premise, and one or two which feel far more original. But despite the promise of those episodes which fall into the latter category, and despite the uniformly excellent acting (just wait ‘til you read the cast list), it’s hard not to walk away feeling as if you’ve spent hours watching the writers attempt to free themselves from their pitch.Full review
Soulmates feels like neither an indictment nor a celebration of the concept of predestined lovers, but rather a cluster of underdeveloped ideas loosely held together by it.Full review
So many of the characters in “Soulmates” are looking for trust. That search would mean more if the show around them had a little bit more of it.Full review
There are strong performances from an array of prestige TV’s familiar faces but the show lapses into the predictable pace of similar anthology series, where the ideas are many but the results are not always captivating. Still, “Soulmates” is a nifty enough show for AMC to serve from its pandemic cupboard.Full review
The six-episode run makes clear that the format offers a vast array of storytelling possibilities, built around the tantalizing promise of better dating through science, with all the cautionary warnings that entails.Full review
Soulmates: Season 1 is available to stream in New Zealand now on Prime Video.
