Another Period: Season 1 (2015)

SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic 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.

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…

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.

Loving this.

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.
