As Emmy voting is wrapping up, the response I’ve been receiving to #UndertheBannerFX is unbelievably rewarding. We at @RealImagine are so proud of the show and the painstaking work @DLanceBlack, the cast, and crew did to fully realize this powerful and important story. @Hulu pic.twitter.com/IYHyHbzoRJ

Under the Banner of Heaven is only available in the USA; it will be released on Disney Plus UK only on July 27th, in Canada next month and I don’t know the release date in another countries. I think in this case it´s not fair compare the IMDB ranking and the mentions on social networks with a series that is available in several countries as The Staircase. By the way, I don’t understand why the series will be available in the UK only 3 months after the USA premiere, considering there is no need for dubbing or subtitles.May 22, 2022 at 2:17 pm #1204960439

Caught back up with UTBOH this week. The show has a level of polish that seems more than worthy of getting a series nom, but I’m just not convinced people are racing to finish it out with how slow-paced it is. I have no doubts about Garfield getting in but having a lot of doubts about whether he could be competitive. It’s a subtle role that’s more about reaction than action, and that might be a tough sell. Even without many *big* scenes, he’s been consistently strong. Meanwhile Wyatt Russell has had a boatload of really meaty scenes.
Maybe Andrew get the most meaty scenes in the last 2 episodies. Isabel Sandoval is directing episode 6 and she has been posting a lot about Andrew:

LA Times television editor about Andrew Garfield:
Andrew Garfield makes a series of gestures in the opening minutes of "Under the Banner of Heaven" that mercifully avoid fealty to perfect realism; they are heightened in a way that doesn't seem quite believable, and yet telegraph an entire character in no time flat. I'm rapt.

Under the Banner of Heaven may not be unanimous, but Andrew’s performance is getting a lot of praise.April 28, 2022 at 10:05 pm #1204936558
I do want Andrew Garfield to win something because I think he had THE time last year and I personally would have nominated him for both Tick, Tick… BOOM! (Lead) and The Eyes Of Tammy Faye (Supporting). Yet, its normal to have concerns over the fact that the show hasn’t been received the way I anticipated it to be. That being said, the audience reception of the show (and in particular the reception of ages 45+ for the show) is something I’m intrigued to watch unfold.
Overhall all the reviews praise very much the Andrew acting, the main criticize is about the story pace and the flashbacks. I am rooting for Garfield too and I expect his work will be recognized with a Emmy nomination at least.April 28, 2022 at 1:52 pm #1204936094
What a remarkable string of performances Andrew Garfield has delivered over the last couple of years, from his underrated work as the slimy charlatan Jim Bakker opposite Academy Award winner Jessica Chastain in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” to his Oscar-nominated turn as Jonathan Larson in “tick, tick…BOOM!” to his triumphant return to the web in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and now his smoldering and empathetic work as a Mormon detective in the uneven but often stunningly impactful limited true-crime series “Under the Banner of Heaven.” At 38, Garfield has solidified his standing as one of the most versatile and interesting actors of his generation.
"Under the Banner of Heaven" is an involving, fascinating and sometimes shocking effort, with strong writing and outstanding performances from the entire cast, with Andrew Garfield leading the way, writes @RichardERoeper. https://t.co/P6FZg4cDBE

Washington Post review:
UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN really crept up on me. I was initially skeptical of its seeming conventionality as a police procedural, but it really works as an exploration of the various factors that pave the way for self-radicalization. https://t.co/pyLETCSoBy

(1/2) Since last October, I've had the honor of creating music for the new UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN series with Josh Klinghoffer & Josh Evans, including some incredible trio days with John Wicks. – Jeff#UndertheBannerFX pic.twitter.com/5dTOP7UdGX

Pretty shocked by the UTBOH scores. On MC it’s still a solid 77 but with the high end of the score being one 90 and a couple 80s with a trend towards low 70s. Tough to tell with MC though, my complaint is that place never freaking updates their scores. You get reviews posted for half a day and then it slows to a crawl or stops completely.
I think a lot of reviews for UTBOH is out tomorrow and we can have a better idea. The number of reviews now is very low to make any conclusion. And some very positive reviews like BBC are not computed yet on the RT and MC.April 26, 2022 at 5:02 pm #1204933720
Margaret Lyons, New York Times, on Under the Banner of Heaven:
““Heaven” is among the best cast shows in living memory, and moments can feel so alive they almost hiss. Wyatt Russell (miss you, “Lodge 49”) embodies gregarious menace as the dangerous eager leader whose slide into narcissistic fundamentalism dooms almost everyone around him. Garfield’s tragic naïveté, meanwhile, curdles into sour wisdom, his boyishness draining before our very eyes.”
“I inhaled the five episodes made available to critics, even though I’m otherwise pretty tired of split-timeline crime shows. But this is beautiful and haunting, and its layering of ideas about purpose, origin and disillusion becomes richer each episode. If you want your next big show, it’s this.”.April 25, 2022 at 8:02 am #1204930998
