March 10, 2019
Full of issues, and lacking direction, Dietland nevertheless is a solid examination of the pervasiveness of fatphobia.
December 7, 2018
The writing, direction and acting take absolutely no prisoners.

At first, it put me off...gradually, I began to appreciate the sheer amount of spaghetti that Noxon throws against the wall...visually, Dietland is a carnival of distortion, capturing the eating-disordered mind-set, down to its credit sequence,
September 4, 2018
Dietland is consistently smart and thoughtful.

When this show works it gets its revenge on the beautiful people, not with bitterness, but with a smile.
July 31, 2018
Some developments come to fruition in a satisfying manner, but too many do not.

July 25, 2018
With a tone that, especially at the beginning, is disconcerting, the series shouts loud and clear its message against the dictatorship of the image. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 2, 2018
[Joy] Nash keeps this story from flying apart under its centrifugal force with a natural and complex performance.
June 29, 2018
It took a few episodes for Dietland to get going, but even before it gained a head of steam, Joy Nash was so goddamn good in this that she managed to maintain my interest in her character even when I wasn't that interested in the story.

June 28, 2018
it's been called a feminist riposte to Fight Club. It's all that, and more, and nuanced, and savagely funny in parts. And dark. And moreish.
June 21, 2018
Thuds occur with such regularity that they threaten to drown out Dietland's entire soundtrack, but alas, do not.
June 18, 2018
Joy Nash, as Plum Kettle, is one of those unpredictable, flawed, mercurial leads.
June 18, 2018
Subtlety can be overrated, and Dietland's brazen messaging is a cornerstone of its charm as pulpy, propulsive summer TV.
June 15, 2018
It's never bad to have a fiercely feminist story - or Julianna Margulies - on screen.

June 13, 2018
How can women break free of misogyny and break cycles of harm?... Dietland doesn't just stare at these questions, it bites into them with sharp teeth, letting the juice run.
June 12, 2018
Wonderfully surreal series skewers America's beauty complex.

June 8, 2018
With its deft blending of genres and style choices, Dietland is far and away one of the most unique things on television at the moment.
June 7, 2018
It is a riveting and promising start to what may become a new addition to great American black comedies.
June 7, 2018
All in all, a delicious, satisfying and moreish meal. One to binge on and not feel a moment's guilt about.
June 6, 2018
Though Joy Nash is undeniably a star, the show unfortunately doesn't seem to trust Plum's sincere story will entice viewers without plot gimmicks and unevenly applied satire.
