Difficult People: Season 2 (2016)



Critic Consensus: Difficult People picks up even more momentum in its sophomore season, upping the addictive yet somehow relatable nastiness of its leads with fast-paced -- and possibly therapeutic -- hilarity.

Critic Reviews for Difficult People Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

It's all clever and funny, if you enjoy laughing at people who are thoroughly mean and selfish, which I do. They represent some of the darker sides of human nature, those petty, unpleasant feelings we're generally taught to hide.

It's so nice to be back with Billy and Julie again. Hulu's Difficult People... is a show that wears its unique but tricky concept on its sleeve... And it's so much fun to watch.

I like Difficult People. Whenever I watch it, though, I'm always acutely aware of why I like it.

As with season 1, the show hinges on the friendship between Julie and Billy. Their schemes are hatched at the start of each episode and implode at the end, but at least they have each other.

Fast-paced and motormouthed as it is, Difficult People still finds ways to make a pair of despicable, difficult friends entirely relatable and pal-worthy, even when a few of its shots fall short of the bullseye.

The new episodes are jam-packed with pop-culture jokes that will leave you trying to suppress outbursts of laughter lest you miss one punchline set atop another, like layers of a delicious cake.

I've just binge-watched three second-season episodes of Hulu's Difficult People and don't have a kind word to say about anyone. Well, except for Billy Epstein and Julie Kessler, who hold the title of the world's most hilarious egomaniacs.

Jul 11, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

You have been warned. This is maddeningly raw, often broad comedy. Me, I liked its sheer, unadulterated rudeness. Watch this and you will feel better about yourself and the world. That is the point; that is the therapy it provides.

There's something sweet about Billy and Julie's firm belief in each other, even as their codependent friendship helps destroy their ability to find success or connect with others.

Jul 15, 2016 | Full Review…

I'd love for Difficult People to one day demand that Julie and Billy realize how burrowing into themselves has limited who they are and could be. Until then, I'm happy with jokes about movie stars' missing genitalia.
