Critic Reviews for Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

The deliciously depraved sitcom, which returns for its second season tonight, reminds viewers that these days a working stiff can't catch a break.

Still funny and still an acquired taste.

It has a delightful bad attitude, a serrated insouciance.

I'm still so impressed with how much Krysten Ritter can do with just her eyes.

Oct 23, 2012 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Was Krysten Ritter absolutely fantastic in this dark comedy as a roommate from hell? Yes. Was she still eclipsed by James van der Beek, though? She was, but Lord love them both.

Sep 9, 2020 | Full Review…

I love how Van der Beek can make fun of himself, especially by reading a letter from the rest of the "Dawson's Creek" cast about a reunion he will never do.

Jan 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The second season saw the show refining one of the most unique voices on television at the time as it straddled the line between surrealism and emotional revelations.

Jan 11, 2019 | Full Review…

A (sort of) oldie but an oft-ignored goodie. Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) is at her acerbically funny best as the titular b**** in apartment 23.

Dec 14, 2016 | Full Review…

I'm still not convinced this show can maintain its high degree of snark every single week but it's off to a more promising start than it was a year ago.

Oct 23, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a fun episode; Van Der Beek's good-sported spoofing of his past is still the best thing about the show.

Oct 23, 2012 | Full Review…

It's the same uneven show [as it was in season 1], full of ideas that seem funny in concept but only occasionally get there in execution.

Oct 23, 2012 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

This show only occasionally works, and I increasingly think it would have been a better bet as an animated show.

    Loved it. Mad she didn't go with the assistant. Come onnnn they perfect together!
  • Jan 07, 2019
    watched 8 episodes. had no inclination to keep going. not only was i barely laughing, but this season made me cringe at bad jokes numerous times (1 viewing)
  • Jan 04, 2018
    Not quite as good as Season 1. It seems to peter out a bit near the end. However, definitely worth a watch if you enjoyed the first season.
  • Aug 18, 2016
    Don't trust the b---- in apartment 23 is possibly in my top ten tv series along side Game of Thrones, House of Cards and pretty much every other tv show I've seen. My friend got me into this show and I was addicted and sadly binge watched it and finished in the span of two days. When I finished the second season I was upset that it had ended. If you haven't seen this show go watch it on netflix. It's silly, fun and gives some great life advice.

    “Don’t Trust the B#### at Apartment 23” regresa con más de lo mismo, pero perdiendo el brillo del título de nueva serie. La trama no cambia mucho, ambas chicas siguen siendo compañeras de departamento, esta vez por elección propia, la dinámica sigue igual June es la trabajadora, ordenada, a veces calificada como aburrida y Chloe es una narcisista, autoproclamada personalidad de las fiestas. La sit-com mantiene sus estándares. Lo raro es que en ciertos episodios June y Chloe toman elecciones que llevaban a sus personajes a un nuevo nivel, pero en menos de un episodio la dirección parecía arrepentirse y revertía la decisión. Otro pormenor fue el aumento del elenco secundario, que no aportó ni humor o drama. En su segunda temporada “Don’t Trust the B#### at Apartment 23” sigue el principio “Si no está roto no necesita ser arreglado”, por lo que continúa con su mismo humor, misma trama con giros argumentales, solo suma un poco más de James Van Der Beek en pantalla.

    It amps up everything, especially the laughs! This season (the actual season 2) is excellent and flawless! The first 14 episodes are aired out of order, and with the six remaining episodes of the last season randomly in there too. But at episode 15, it's finally aired in order and without any of the last season. Check the actual episode list at the end of the season 1 review!
  • Dec 20, 2015
    Good continuation from season 1, but the last few episodes were boring, poorly scripted and good characters turned into caricatures.
  • Dec 20, 2015
    Incredible comedy. It failed because people suck, it's mean-spirited (this is a plus to me since it makes it funny / original), the title sucks and people judge shows by their titles, and ABC destroyed it's continuity by massively effing up the order episodes aired in. Few comedies make me laugh as much as this.

    Dreama walker was great. The writing a bit weak.
  • Jun 01, 2014
    One of my favourite comedy tv shows. Too bad they didn't order more than two seasons.
