Dead to Me: Season 1 Reviews

May 21, 2019
As simple as it sounds, "Dead to Me" knows exactly what it is and exactly who its characters aren't.

At the heart of the story, things don't really add up or carry the emotional weight they should, because Judy and Jen are ideas more than characters - avatars of anger, grief and guilt.

As Dead to Me is presented, however, one can take each frame like face cards in a deck that shuffles well but is missing something, that's playable as long as you overlook the fact that it's missing an ace or two.

It is very watchable, in spite of [the] unevenness.

One of the true joys of a world with so much television is that a series as bizarre and beautiful as "Dead" gets made at all.

The show is at its best when Jen and Judy are just hanging out.

"Dead To Me" is a terrific character study of two women with an extremely complicated relationship, and also like that show, is one of the best and most unpredictable series on television this season.
May 3, 2019
What's admirable about the series -- it's far from flawless and some episodes, like many Netflix shows, are a bit redundant -- is how it touches on sorrow and gloom, as those feelings emerge in the gorgeous setting and comfortable lives of the characters.
May 3, 2019
Dead To Me is at its best when the smartest, saddest, and funniest people in the room are the characters, not the writers who create the world in which they live.
May 3, 2019
Jen and Judy don't complete each other, but they do complement one another-and they have a helluva time doing so, which is what makes Dead To Me more compelling than its adequately teased and deployed twists.
