AUDIENCE SCORE

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 (20) | Top Critics (10)

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.

June 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.

June 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.

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.

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.
