Critic Reviews for Will: Miniseries

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (17)

Let's hope one day the stages of Will and the casting couches of Hollywood will seem like distant, impossible nightmares.

Why not cast Marlowe and Shakespeare and Burbage as handsome anti-heroes? And as long as the jokes keep coming thick and fast Will is, surprisingly, a seriously watchable morsel.

Top Critic

Zesty Shakespeare bio-series has sex appeal and wit.

Common Sense Media

Sure, it's fun to see Shakespeare get some; fortunately, Will manages to find depth beyond that.

As it stands now, I don't relish watching more of Will until it starts to veer away from the clichés and give us a young Shakespeare worth rooting for.

July 10, 2017 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

For all its frenetic pacing, Will seems wheezily old-fashioned, the umpteenth attempt to attract a young audience to great art by modernizing it -- except that Will's ideas of modernity are a half-century old.
