Critic Reviews

Score: 4.5

Nathan Rabin - Vulture - Apr 26, 2017

"The episode haltingly but compellingly captures the weird anxiety and uncertainty that accompanies pharmaceutically pre-gaming for a Phish show. Harris can be heartbreakingly earnest and sincere here, like when he describes how Phish shows are his temple, his synagogue and his church, and the place he goes to heal when everything else in his life is going to shit. Harris is funny and warm and engaging as always but also incredibly raw, almost like a newborn deer. In the end, I’m glad that the episode was released because it’s good just to have a hundred more minutes or so of Harris talking and joking out there in the cosmos, even it’s about an experience freighted with expected and unexpected darkness."
