Tv Season Info

In the noirish comedy's second season, Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman) has finally finished his second novel, but that doesn't mean he can quit moonlighting as a private detective. In fact, Jonathan even has a third job teaching a night-school writing class. Meanwhile, Ray (Zach Galifianakis) is having relationship problems, and George (Ted Danson) gets a surprise at his urologist's office. Jonathan's cases this season include a police officer who hires him to scrub his name from the client list of an S&M dungeon that's about to be raided; and a professor in a financial bind who asks Jonathan to retrieve an item of great value. F. Murray Abraham and Kevin Bacon are among the guest stars.

Critic Reviews for Bored to Death Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

At times, the action does loll along too gently while building to each episode's climactic scene. But robust performances make the show a winner.

It's wholly enjoyable and still better than new "comedy" series on all the regular networks, but the hipster nature of Ames novelist roots can only be charming for so long.

For now, I am still happy to come along for the wild ride.

Ames achieves a consistent tone of nonchalance across a considerable array of competing dramatic and comic material - which is no mean feat.

Jun 22, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The second-season premiere injects even more ripped-from-today's-headlines truthiness into the proceedings without ever feeling like a procedural.

Bored to Death is a true delight. All of it. ALL THE TIME.

Oct 25, 2010 | Full Review…

The colliding worlds serves Bored To Death well, and I'm hopeful this season will find much more of that.

Top Critic

Far from an empty barrage of one-liners and absurd scenarios, Bored to Death offers one or two poignant scenes per episode, dramatic interludes that nonetheless feel organic with the larger, somewhat farcical mood.
