“As a narrative and a send-up of academia, it’s sometimes distractingly loose (…) But as a rich world stocked with endearingly messed-up characters fumbling their way through some hard choices, it’s tough to resist.” Keith Phipps: TV Guide
“Amanda Peet provides sharp insight into the challenges faced by women and people of colour in the staunchly traditional world of academia, bolstered by strong performances and effective moments of comic relief.” David Craig: Radio Times
