Critics Consensus

The well-acted Dietland delivers timely and engaging social commentary with enough humor and scathing wit to make up for an occasionally scattered narrative approach.

Tv Season Info

A wickedly funny and extraordinarily timed satire about Plum Kettle (Nash), a ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York's hottest fashion magazines. Struggling with self-image and fed up with how she's treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-awakening. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths. Plum also finds herself in the middle of two warring factions -- one sisterhood who may be responsible for the attacks on male harassers, and the other which preaches female empowerment. She straddles these two groups, trying to make sense of the changing world and her part in it.

Creator Noxon certainly has put together an attention-getter in times when growing numbers of prominent men very deservedly have been exposed for past and sometimes ongoing sexual misconduct.

Dietland, which premiered Monday on AMC, finds creator Marti Noxon at her most comfortable: spinning unconventional stories about complicated, rage-filled women.

Watching the show toss a million balls in the air is riveting, even if I have no particular expectation it won't ultimately drop most of them.

Dietland, a dark comedy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer producer Marti Noxon, gets off to a similarly sticky start, but its premise promises to be an interesting one should it manage to iron out the initial creases.

Dietland does establish a distinct personality, and fast.

Sometimes you watch something, and it just has the stuff. Dietland may be a mess, but it's got the stuff.

Jun 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Full of issues, and lacking direction, Dietland nevertheless is a solid examination of the pervasiveness of fatphobia.

Mar 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The writing, direction and acting take absolutely no prisoners.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Dietland is consistently smart and thoughtful.

Sep 4, 2018 | Full Review…

When this show works it gets its revenge on the beautiful people, not with bitterness, but with a smile.

Audience Reviews for Dietland: Season 1

  • Oct 01, 2018
    Delivering intelligent social and political commentary on how appearance will affect your social ranks and that you can never change people's minds about their bias towards fat people, colored people and women, Dietland achieves in multiple categories that most fictional programs about struggling with one's weight does not.
  • Aug 21, 2018
    This is a man hating show that would never be accepted if it were about killing women accused of terrible things. This divides us instead of uniting us so we need to move away from this kind of hate .
  • Aug 13, 2018
    Loving it. Can't wait for season 2.
  • Aug 09, 2018
    Took me a few episodes to appreciate the humor and wonderful acting. A real life take on what women have gone through over the years. Actor who plays Plum is fabulous and Julianne M. is always a treat to watch. Don't feel the murderous theme is necessary or needed.

  • Jul 30, 2018
    Brilliant scripts and exceptionally talented actors -- its funny, its sad, it makes you wonder if the writers have watched parts of your life.
  • Jul 28, 2018
    original and witty, it goes through the challenges of the women day by day and shows one of the most radical expressions of feminism that many of us like.
  • Jul 22, 2018
    Absolutely fantastic
  • Jul 21, 2018
    initially compelling and refreshing the series loses focus round' episode 5
