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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
