News & Interviews for Documentary Now!: Season 2
The show's stars, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, elevate every episode with their performances, but it's a comedy that wrings laughs mostly with its rigorous attention to detail.
Season Two isn't purely a high concept exercise in direct imitation, there will also be plenty of LOLs.
Documentary Now! continues to surprise and entertain from week to week with such varied episodes, with some leaning toward slapstick and others more subdued.
[It] not only succeeds in pulling off the documentary parody that it's going for, but also in just being downright funny and another good showcase of Hader and Armisen.
Documentary Now makes a solid case that it could very well be a comedy series that fits that bill, but the series' ambitions remain just a bit too hit-and-miss to fully realize that promise.
