Critic Reviews for Banana: Series 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (8)

It's worth noting that the first two episodes of Banana focus on queer people of color (Dean and a lesbian, Scotty, respectively) from different class backgrounds.

Straight viewers might find themselves hooked on a Logo show for the first time. Folk are queer that way.

These episodes of Banana are lovely self-standing short stories that build to revelatory moments, but then they also add scope and layers of depth to Cucumber.

Logo upends the usual stereotypes by revealing the insecurities beneath the sexual bravado, the emotional inertia that can infect seemingly successful relationships, and the sexual obsessions and hang-ups that make us all human.

Of the two series, Banana is more fun.
