What Are the Critics Saying About Back To The Rafters?
Back To The Rafters does not yet have an official critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The series, however, has a user score of 8/10 on IMDB and has received mixed reactions from critics.
The Conversation’s Daryl Sparkes says, “Back To The Rafters avoids most of the trappings of what I have previously dubbed ‘Zombie TV’ – those shows that come back from the dead and act as if nothing has changed. The writers of Back To The Rafters have not tried to emulate the familiar concerns of the past. Instead they created issues relevant to 2021, with all the current complications attached.”
Jessica Morris from Others Magazine writes, “Back To The Rafters is a timely, compelling and believable chapter in the life of the Rafter family. The gravity of the issues is held equally with humour, and it’s delightful to see where supporting characters are now.”
