Critic Reviews for Chelsea Does Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

The main problem with Chelsea Does, a four-part Netflix docuseries centered around the comedian Chelsea Handler, well, doing things, is that it doesn't know which one of these genres it should aim for.

Handler fans will enjoy what she has to offer, while others may find the anecdotal discussions mildly interesting.

At the end of the day, Chelsea Does isn't a documentary designed for everyone, but if you do manage to find something fascinating between the flagrant flaws, you'll leave this season with a pleasant enough experience in memory.

I found the series irritating because I find Handler funny very rarely. If you're a fan, you'll have a great time, because what this series should be called is Chelsea Does Chelsea.

Chelsea Does is every bit the no-filter, humor-filled weaponization against the four topics presented that fans will crave.

[Handler's] brassiness does make her interesting, and makes her a good interviewer.

Chelsea Does... [is] a four-part series on Netflix by Chelsea Handler (Eddie Schmidt directed) in which she breaks the documentary mold, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse.

What this series needs is a little less Chelsea and a lot more Does.

Top Critic

When Handler travels outside her own worldview and gets out of her own way, and uses her sharp comedic instincts to expose absurdity and hypocrisy, what Chelsea Does is sometimes worthwhile.

Top Critic

The sharp, irreverent comic gives us Chelsea Does, a series of thoughtful, funny, personal investigations into such topics as marriage, racism, Silicon Valley, and drugs.
