Time After Time - Reception - Netflix
The series has received mixed reviews from critics. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 67% approval rating with an average rating of 6.29/10 based on 30 reviews. The website's consensus reads, “Time After Time employs its central narrative gimmick to ill effect, leaving a charming cast stranded in a stream of tedious storylines.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 59 out of 100 based on 24 reviews, indicating “mixed or average reviews”. Sonia Saraiya, writing in Variety, felt that despite an engaging lead performance the series failed to live up to its “fun” potential, and raised strident objections to its style of violence: “the studied shallowness of Time After Time’s approach to violence makes for a sickening dynamic that attempts to cheaply humanize a serial killer. And while a shallow look at violence might be all that broadcast television’s standards and practices will allow, it feels both flat and exploitative.”
