There’s a tonal whiplash that can be perplexing. But... a delightful performance from Chiwetel Ejiofor holds the series together...

It’s a solidly made, issue-oriented sci-if road trip, nothing to blow your mind, perhaps, but not at all a waste of time.

(Ejiofor's is) an incredible performance bursting with tenderness, humor and the requisite level of oddity one would expect of a being thrust into an unfamiliar place.

The Man Who Fell To Earth lightens its heavy conceit just enough to make the series accessible to people who aren’t necessarily sci fi fans, and Ejiofor’s performance is a big part of that.
