What Are the Critics Saying about Time of Death?
Time of Death does not have an official critics rating yet, but the series has a user score of 8.7/10 on IMDB. The series seems to have succeeded in pulling at viewers’ heartstrings.
Entertainment Weekly’s Jeff Jenson says, “No, you do not want to watch this show. You’ll be glad you did. I doubt you’ll spend time with a more compelling group of characters or witness more complex human drama on any show this season.”
Allison Keene from The Hollywood Reporter writes, “As one participant’s doctor says, ‘as a society we need to dignify death, and make it a natural part of living.’ Time of Death will probably succeed for some viewers in starting that dialogue. In other ways, the intimate filming style can also augment the idea that these vignettes are somehow too invasive — the camera lingering on a lifeless body never feels quite right.”
Is Time of Death Suitable for Kids?
