Watch Here and Now 365movies free online – I’m only one episode in but I love it. Some reviewers have described the show as a load of PC rubbish. I reckon it’s a very clever expose of the hypocrisy of the cultural marxists/pc lefties, their decadent lifestyle and their issues with attempting to assuage their social guilt.

Here and Now review by Russianson – Masterclass
The past few years has seen the infiltration of capitalism in film and television (just look at Marvel, the whole mess that is the Oscars) that has prevented these mediums to really flourish into its full potential as an art form. There are exceptions (few, but they exist: Twilight Zone, Buffy, Six Feet Under, Transparent, Happy Valley) and I’m happy to say that Alan Ball’s fantastic new drama certainly has the ability to join their rank.
The writing, the acting, the production is all beautiful. There is so much subtlety and shades in Ball’s work, lines that are tragic upon first viewing, but are actually extremely funny the second time around (or the other way around). There’s almost too much to find in the first two episodes (the only episodes out at the time of this review), but my favorite aspect to Ball’s work is his balance between taking his characters seriously, their trials and feelings and tragedies as serious concerns while also critiquing, laughing at, or challenging them all the while. Ball has never sounded so world-weary, but has there ever been this much love and empathy in his work before?
I cannot really express how much I love this show. It will stimulate your mind, your eyes, and your heart. Only two episodes in, I can tell there’s been nothing like this on television before, and there will never be anything like it again.
Trailer Here and Now:
Here and Now review by Rob Greaves – Excellent Pilot, feels very much like Six Feet Under with a twist…
I normally don’t watch series with less than 8 stars on IMDB because I usually find it to be the most accurate site for averages. Having listened to Tim Robbins on the Nerdist Podcast however, I thought Here and Now sounded intriguing.
The Pilot had everything that Six Feet under had. It has great characters who are already being fleshed out in just a single episode and the story is something that I am already hooked by.
I don’t usually leave reviews but the users of IMDB who were so quick to come on here and slate it (some after only watching 20 minutes of it) made me feel that the program was made more because of them and not for them.
This is a worrying time when so many people feel they can spew hatred simply because there are gay people in a TV show. Ironically, I am pretty sure that the series will tackle these issues head on. Its just a shame that so many feel emboldened to share homophobic and vile views when all this is trying to represent is life.
The funny thing is that one of the adopted children had a good conversation about how they were adopted so their parents could show how progressive they were.
In an age of binge watching shows, this is one that I will be happy to wait each week for.
Here and Now review by beanu-62229 – Intriguing, imaginative. Just enough weirdness to warrant anticipation.
I rewatched the first episode after a slightly distracted initial watch. It’s a dense story, with several familiar plotlines somehow twisted in the proper way. I saw a review about it being “leftists”. That is missing the boat entirely. There is certainly a political thread, how can there not be in this day & age, but there is a self-deprecating view of the progressive ideals. One that doesn’t negate but simply shows depth. Underneath all of this lye a mystery that intrigues and promises some surprise.
Here and Now review by cheryltaragin – What A Pretentious Pile of Pathos
Berkeley activists meet, marry, and settle in Portland. Holly Hunter is the middle-aged overbearing, controlling, former therapist wife. Tim Robbins is the middle-aged philosophy professor/author undergoing a mid-life crisis husband. They’ve raised a Brangelina family of black, light brown, and yellow children, including one lily-white child of their own. For good measure, their black daughter is married to a white “Republican before Trump” and their light brown son is gay and suffering from hallucinations about the number 11.
This show is the anti-“This Is Us.” It’s the “Look At Us, Ain’t We Messed Up” show. At one point, I had to ask myself if I even care what happens to these people. In one way or another, the Gen Z children annoyingly comment about their rainbow family throughout the show. Predictably, married couples will cheat on each other, the children will do drugs, and everyone will wonder about the meaning of life and whether any of it is worthwhile. The show tries so hard at being relevant that it’s already a cliche.
Three mysteries may have me tuning back in for a second flagellation. Why is the Vietnamese son celibate? Why is the Hispanic son hallucinating about the number 11? How is the Hispanic son related to his shrink? I don’t know how long the showrunner can keep this shell game going, but he’d better come up with a better sideshow or I’ll be heading for the exits before the reveal.
Here and Now review by diedaily77 – Funny, sexy, well-casted
I watched the pilot solely due to the fact that Tim Robbins was in it. In contrast to a couple of the other reviewers, I found it to be smart and funny. True, some of the themes that were explored are not exactly novel, but I thought they were handled with skill and delicacy. The cast is great. The production values are very good. The story-lines are intriguing…especially the curve balls presented by the son who hallucinates/dreams about the number eleven and the mysteriously celibate Asian adopted son. I’m definitely going to keep watching.
Here and Now review by mbizzle-78517 – Pretty good so far, I find it intriguing.
I thought the show seems pretty good so far. The cast is an interesting mix of characters and ethnicities. The show just started so there’s still a lot to get to but I thought as an opener by the end my wife and I were really looking forward to next week. All and all it has promise.
Here and Now review by Declan McCann – Misunderstood by Conservatives and the Right
This is a clever TV show that may be uncomfortable to watch if you’re averse to every conceivable liberal/hippie trope crammed into the first two episodes of a show, so don’t watch if you’re easily triggered. Sure, every straight white male is a derogatory stereotype, but what show today isn’t like this? “Liberals” will see what they want in the show’s characters and dialogue, but I see an objective critique of this philosophy and lifestyle.
What intrigues me the most is the show’s handling of parapsychological phenomena. I won’t say any more about it, but I will say that I expected another rehash of the mental illness/magical child trope when I read the synopsis. This show is much deeper than that. The guy’s story arch really seems to be making a statement on the nature of reality and consciousness.
Worth watching the first two episodes.
Here and Now review by WeilEsRegnet – The second episode is just bad
I liked the pilot. The dialogues were good, the characters interesting, some scenes were emotinal. Overall, a good start. But the second episode is just so bad, I couldn’t get through it without skipping half of the scenes. The characters are super annoying. I can’t identify with any of them (except maybe the youngest brother). The show tries really hard to insert some social commentary (they are not subtle about it at all) and fails miserably. After the first awkward “let’s talk about social justice and feminsms”-scene I thought that okay, this is setting up one of the characters that were introduced shortly afterwards. So I forgave them for it. The second scene made me cringe so badly, I eventually skipped forward. Politically, I believe in most of the things that this show shoves in our face (feminism, white priviledge etc.) and I like shows that actually adress some of these issues in a good and interesting way (for example, I loved One Day at a Time). But this is just too preachy, even for my taste, and annoying and it feels like pandering. So I won’t continue watching. The mystery element (the younger brother seeing the number 11 11 and having some kind of connection to his therapist) is not enough to keep me interested.
