Audience Reviews for Difficult People: Season 1

    Season 1 of Difficult People is one of my favorite things ever. It only takes 4ish hours to power through the 8 episodes and I find myself watching it over and over again! Julie and Billy are life!
  • Sep 23, 2016
    I can relate to these characters. I can't stand people and their self righteous, pretentious b.s. and just like them I simply cannot stand kids. This show is perfect for anyone who despises modern humanity!
  • Sep 18, 2016
    Hilarious irreverent and funny. Lots of NYC insider jokes....yes Billy and Julie are kind of awful but so is everyone else in their universe except Julie's boyfriend Arthur... Each episode involves numerous mishaps on their quest to be famous-which never quite work out. The are Lucy and Ricky in the modern age.

    A fairly hilarious debut season that gets by with assured footing and zingy-writing. Following in the tradition of previous sit-coms that made deplorable characters lovable (i.e. Seinfeld, Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner shine as playing asshole versions of themselves, while successfully touching both on the frustrations of being a New Yorker, as well as those of pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. The mean-spitedness rarely gets grating, and the humor is fast and funny throughout the eight episodes. One of the most underrated comedies on TV, as it's arguably a more mature and organic Broad City.
  • Mar 25, 2016
    Everyone is very angry in this show, but in a funny way. It's not bad. It's not great but it's not bad.
  • Sep 26, 2015
    Interesting remarks and pop culture references. Still, a bit too negative and loud for my taste.
  • Sep 23, 2015
    I love this show lots of humor filled with snarky one liners
  • Aug 21, 2015
    I definitely want to love this show, Billy Eichner was great on Parks and Rec. So far, the show is underwhelming. It is not anywhere near as funny as it should, or seemingly could be. There's not really anything wrong with any of the actors, but honestly the writing sucks.
  • Aug 18, 2015
    More like "Difficult to Watch". There's so much name-dropping in this show, it gave me a headache. If I wanted to watch two people bicker all day, I'd visit my parents.
  • Aug 16, 2015
    This is incredibly disappointing. I was very excited to see this show; especially as the very talented Amy Poehler has a hand in it. I watched 3 epsidoes before definitively coming to the conclusion....that this is AWFUL. The leads are not funny. The characters are all horrendous. I am not sure how Amy Poehler was conned into producing this! Don't waste your time, watch Broad City instead for some real comedy and great writing.
