Critic Reviews for Billy & Billie Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (9)

The triumph of "Billy & Billie" is that even though the creepy shadow of incest never entirely lifts, it doesn't darken everything else about the show.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

[It] is the best kind of new television show. Even as its characters snap and snark at each other, the portrayal of these flawed humans is humane...and dare I say, empathetic?

Apr 15, 2015 | Full Review…

Adam Brody is just fine as the unruffled brother, but it's relative newcomer Lisa Joyce who steals the show as the sister, wearing her frustrations all over her sleeve.

Mar 2, 2015 | Full Review…

The show represents a credible twist on the familiar romantic-comedy notion of characters being drawn to each even when they shouldn't be, assuming that viewers can get past the "ick" factor.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Nothing much happens in any given episode of "Billy & Billie"...That's sometimes frustrating; you're left wanting a bit more pith, as well as more back story. But there are wry rewards in the exchanges between Billy and Billie.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Though the laughs may come through gritted teeth and a pained wince, they are there.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a remarkable achievement, this little trip into romcom hell. But it's far from hellish to watch, if you're open to it.

Dec 2, 2015 | Full Review…

If Billy and Billie become "regular" relationship partners, the premise will need to expand. In the meantime, LaBute, Brody and Joyce have given us enough reason to keep watching.

Mar 3, 2015 | Full Review…

In the end, the very droll and compelling Billy & Billie is much more than just a case of sibling revelry.

Mar 2, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The dialogue, as written by LaBute, is as sharp as anything he has done previously onstage or the big screen. And the characters are just as nasty to each other as ever.

Mar 4, 2015 | Full Review…

Billy & Billie is clever without being laugh-out-loud funny. Brody and Joyce are both good, and the premise is... intriguing.

    One of the best TV shows ever.
  • Jul 27, 2017
    This show is fresh and easy. Incredible dialogue and what I consider to be Adam Brody's finest performances. I have watched the entire season three times now.

    Absolutely brilliant television. Well done Directv for making a funny, irreverent, touching and challenging program.
  • Sep 20, 2015
    The writing in this series is spectacular. There is beautiful nuance in every scene and while some may find the taboo subject offputting, you can't help but root for them. Reminds me of the 'Before' trilogy by Richard Linklater.

    Brilliantly written and captivating.
