The Lazarus Project: Season 1 | Reviews

Going well beyond what we expect from time-travel espionage shows, this oddly unhinged series makes time travel seem like a real drag — and that’s exactly why it’s such a thrill to watch.

The Guardian

The Guardian

It is as gripping, fun and stylish as the acclaimed Giri/Haji, without quite its narrative innovation.

The Telegraph

The Telegraph

Though a little under-explained and occasionally simplistic, The Lazarus Project has a bright concept behind it with satisfying bursts of action.

A taut eight-part sci-fi thriller that’s as big on emotion as it is on timey-wimey shenanigans and high octane action.
