It's incredible!
It's incredible that a show with such an interesting premise can be so drawn-out, padded, and excruciatingly boring. It just dragged on and on, nothing interesting happening for almost an hour. I kept expecting something to happen to make it worth the wait but no, it just continued to plod in circles. Two stars because the acting is good, I guess. I couldn't even make it all the way through the first episode before I realized I was suffering more than I was having fun.

Finally, an unusual story that is NOT NUTS!
NIGHT SKY boasts an intriguing story. exceptional acting and scripting. This is a mix of sci-fi and mystery without the supernatural element. One does not have to be high to enjoy this well-crafted production. Sissy Spacek and J. K. Simmons are fantastic as the leads in this series. But, then, that's what I had hoped. The supporting cast is equally strong and the locations and settings are marvelous. I highly recommend this unique offering.

A Better ChoiceReviewed in the United States on May 20, 2022
5.0 out of 5 stars
Actually really good :)
It's almost like a "feel-good" sci-fi/mystery. A calm but deliberate pace. A good balance of character development, story-line and action. Episodes still end on a cliff hangers. Binge-able and so enjoyable.
A warning: This show may not impress the super-hero movie fans.
Side note: Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons are as excellent as you'd hope for.

A science fiction Mystery !
What a great beginning. Just what I like ... a mystery, science fiction, and some great acting. Have a feeling it is only going to take me two nights to get through the first 8 episodes. Hope there will be more.

An interesting story and some excellent acting!
Interesting story and certainly plausible within a sci-fi mind set. There are a few things that come up that make you go huh? but they don't deter from enjoying this season 1 of this show. There is good drama, family story, sci-fi of course, and action as well. The few comedic bits fell flat for me and could have been avoided altogether.

For me, the best acting came from the two ends of the age spectrum. Both Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons are EXCELLENT in their roles and quite believable in their respective characters!!! Had they not anchored this story so well with their performances, I'm not quite sure this show could have been pulled off as it did. Similarly, I found that the young actor Rocío Hernández was very good in her role as Toni. The rest of the cast was quite serviceable with Adam Bartley the best one there IMO.

People more knowledgeable will comment in more depth but I found the filming overall very good and of high level. In fact, some scenes were especially well filmed which I found very enjoyable! For example, the "Argentina" scenes are breathtakingly beautiful. Kudos!!!

I mentioned that some comedy bits could have been avoided. In fact, a good amount of the exposition and secondary stories could have been left out. I think it was just included to lengthen the series to eight episodes of an hour each. A tightening of this and cutting the series to some six hours total would not have diminished the enjoyment I had for it.

I wanted to point out one part that was very poignant and especially well done in this series. That was the whole aging bit, the mental conditions out there, as well as suspect care. It was done coldly (as reality is) yet also touchingly as well. Hopefully, a few eyes will open and the message get through to take better care of our seniors than we are. Unfortunately, it's only at the beginning and would have been a more powerful theme if run through all the episodes (i.e. see the movie Robot and Frank).

Ultimately, it was a fun show and well worth the watch. I avoid 5 stars because those should be reserved for the Casablancas of this world. An average enjoyable piece should be a 3. This was a 3.75 for me so it earned the round-up to 4 stars and I don't mind that at all.

Caveat: expect some of the usual Amazon nonsense which they just can't help themselves in their productions (I'm already talking to you The Rings of Power) which has become so cliché that we just chuckle at you now and sigh for your public embarrassment. That said, it does support a whole slew of YT channels so there's an upside to this I suppose. FWIW, their nonsense actually works when shows are written for it like Upload - a very fun show indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars
Loved this...all of it
When two veteran and extremely talented actors are joined together it has to be good, and this was no disappointment. Loved this...no sex, very little foul language, very little blood guts, and gore, some humor, and lots of great chemistry between the two main actors...it has a small-town feel and it was a joy to watch. For those who said it was slow and mind-numbing... well, your hyperkinetic, sex-crazed, every other word the F-bomb, mind-boggling bloody action-packed shows are... well, are just the same as every other show being distributed these says...take your pick, they're all the same...this is different and refreshing. Can't wait for series 2.

Great actors, concept but very slow.
Great talented actors, interesting concept, but way to slow/boring. Many parts could have been
skipped. Focus on facial express is way to long. Conversations took forever to get thru. I had to fast forward many most parts to just get thru the story, see some action and trying to figure out the mystery.
