The Rehearsal: Season 1 | Reviews

Nathan Fielder's new docu-comedy is a parade of guilt and anxiety made hilariously literal—and he's getting himself closer to the experiment than ever before. If you find reality TV unwatchably cruel, you'll either love this discomfort viewing, or hate it.

You cannot help but want to cringe because it’s so byzantine and so simultaneously emotionally naked.

It takes a mad genius to concoct such preposterous shenanigans and leave you laughing uncomfortably at the results.

If The Rehearsal was only about whether Fielder’s approach pays off every week, it would still be among the best episodic reality shows on TV.

A smart and savvy introspective reali-comedy that challenges our hearts and minds...

Fielder’s work is reliably fascinating, if not necessarily amusing; it is usually presented as comedy, but here it’s comedy of a particularly melancholic sort.

Much of the laughter comes from how much (the show) will make your head spin.

The Rehearsal is a metastasising metafiction that keeps you on the edge of your seat...

It (is) intriguingly bizarre, stealthily provocative and quietly gutting. I want to see where it goes from here.
