Critic Reviews for American Woman Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (9)

Muddled, plodding, unengaging -- this had no perspective other than the obvious one (men are pigs), or a plot much beyond suddenly-single-mom-gets-back-in-workplace.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

If, like me, your formative years developed within you an ability to sit and watch and re-watch Alicia Silverstone do just about anything, you'll welcome her return to the spotlight

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

An unsatisfying, lackluster vehicle for three performers who deserve more.

Jun 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Although I wish it could follow its instinct for a '70s sense of the surreal, it's definitely a garish delight when it comes to the Me Decade's idea of ambiance - a set direction that never gets old.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

There is something of a stiffness to the program, but the silly one-liners and bald-faced female empowerment vibe of a mother striking out on her own in Beverly Hills in 1975 is well worth it.

Jun 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There wasn't anything that was incredibly weird or boring about the show. I was entertained. I wouldn't say that I laughed out loud at any parts.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

While the show held strong in keeping the period piece aspect intact, I'm not sure how strong they were depicting each woman in a satisfying way.

Aug 31, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

For those missing their once weekly dose of Mad Men or Desperate Housewives.

Aug 15, 2018 | Full Review…

With just a few minutes of screen-time, American Woman torpedos the idea of the cougar.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

70s-set feminist dramedy is undermined by stereotypes.

Jun 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

American Woman is cute and fun and a bit of a '70s-set comedy comfort watch, yes, but they're able to work in jokes and messages in slick ways that will have you feeling empowered and entertained (but not overwhelmed) at once.

Jun 8, 2018 | Full Review…

American Woman means well but just can't figure out what show it's trying to be, which makes it a good fit for the equally identity-free Paramount Network.

Audience Reviews for American Woman: Season 1

    I think this show had a lot of potential but was put in the wrong hands. Wrong channel, not publicized enough, shitty time slot. If this show had been on Netflix or something, it would've been a hit.

    I loved this show. I'm a huge fan of Kyle Richards and I was so proud of this effort. My husband really liked the show, too. We were disappointed that it didn't get a second season.

    Alicia Silverstone gives a great performance in this new drama show. I was hoping for a second season but it was sadly cancelled.
