Another Period

Critics Consensus

Another Period benefits from a brilliant cast and clever concept that bawdily lampoons historic dramas and reality TV, though its premise may prove difficult to maintain over time.

Critic Reviews for Another Period Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12)

Another Period also skewers gender politics (and classism and the cult of celebrity), but the jokes are not particularly charged, aiming for -- and granted, usually reaching -- bawdiness, not brilliance.

Not only is [the] point uninteresting, but the jokes fall flat.

Top Critic

Comedian Natasha Leggero and the equally delightful Riki Lindhome (of Garfunkel and Oates) created and star in this surreal, reality TV-style mash-up of Downton Abbey and Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Aug 2, 2018 | Full Review…

There are amusing moments, but the conceit ultimately seems better suited to a Saturday Night Live sketch than another series. Period.

It's a hot 'n' heavy time for period dramas. Comedy Central's latest, a well-timed period parody, mixes corsets and classism with some old-fashioned sex and silliness.

Jun 19, 2015 | Full Review…

The dangling setup is both confrontationally mean-spirited and largely unresolved, in favor of some low-grade finger-up-the-butt jokes.

Aug 25, 2015 | Full Review…

Another Period is as scintillating as it is irreverent in its blistering satire of both period dramas and reality shows.

Jun 26, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This is nowhere near Comedy Central's worst comedy, but it has yet to reach the high comedic standard that has been established for it.

Jun 25, 2015 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Gleefully absurd, Comedy Central's scripted comedy Another Period sends up period dramas (think: Downton Abbey) with humor reminiscent of Reno 911! or Monty Python.

Jun 24, 2015 | Full Review…

That they're mostly mean and stupid, though, doesn't make for the highest quality comedy, though and a pilot involving Helen Keller devolves into a brawl. I imagine every episode will follow suit into similar shambles.

Jun 23, 2015 | Full Review…

Alas, Another Period isn't funny enough to sustain its premise.

Jun 23, 2015 | Full Review…

Another Period is too intent on lampooning every period convention ever to wait even a millisecond for a laugh, resulting in a show that's more frantic than funny.

Audience Reviews for Another Period: Season 1

  • Aug 27, 2015
    Another Period is hilariously crafted by blending reality TV show elements with historical drama parody Downton Abbey. Initially I was sceptical but it turned out to be really good, though some mid episodes were rather campy.

    To quote Catherine Tate as Nan “What a load of old Shit!”

    I find this quirky and odd comedy very refreshing and different from the mainstream. The writing style and humour is superb as it creates a post-modern satire of 'The Kardashians' beamed back in time to Another Period! I think what I enjoy the most about this quirky comedy is that each of the characters, bring to the table... their own style and personality. It is easy to root for each of them and I can honestly say that I am looking forward to Season 3... more than any other anticipated series.

    Brilliant farce...love it

    Hilarious Downton Abbey parody.
  • Jun 10, 2016
    Like the show, a few weak casting choices and some poor acting by a few of the minor characters. Really dislike the hip hop, wish they would stick with music that fits era. Natasha Leggero& Riki Lindhome are very talented and wish them all the best.

    It's something different. DVR it and zip through the commercials. Definitely worth 22 minutes.
  • Dec 19, 2015
    Smart, funny, excellent TV show!
  • Oct 28, 2015
    One of the funniest new shows on TV -- cast perfectly
  • Aug 14, 2015
    This show is brilliantly hilarious and raunchy, all under the umbrella of demented. It's way better than the current rating would have you believe. Not for the feint of heart for sure.
