Solos: "Brought my childhood memories when I started reading 📖📚books." Season 1, Ep 0
Some review comments...
- This television show is a complete abomination.
- The show is beautiful story telling and incredible acting.
- This got to be one of the most boring series ever presented on a streaming service. Who at Amazon thought that a seven episode series with nothing but actors delivering monologues was a great idea?
- Solos was a beautiful series. Every episode was captivating, and at the same time sad too. The way it all came together at the end was amazing.
- Oh wow!! I’m only on episode 2 and I am so moved. Great cast, great stories. Time travel and real feelings about life.
- If you are looking for action this will not be enjoyable to you. These are character driven stories by actors who make you care.
- Cried every episode.
- Alan Bennett meets sci fi.
