Critic Reviews for Easy Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

In early episodes, Chi-town characters deal with the consequences of an open marriage and whether performing burlesque is an act of feminism -- topics creator Swanberg approaches without pretension or fuss.

It's a refreshing experiment, and one filled with diverse characters, challenging ideas, and charming performances.

Easy is of a very particular flavour and won't be for everyone, and as with every anthology series the quality from episode to episode can be variable, but when it's at its best, the show is smart, charming and makes you think.

One of the nice things about Easy is that every episode really, truly is self-contained. The characters' lives overlap in subtle, believable ways that don't feel gimmicky.

It's nuanced, complex, intimate, funny, and reaches far beyond the superficial. My only complaint? Eight episodes just aren't enough.

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Easy is Swanberg's best work. There are times this show is too improvisational and falls flat. But as a serialized TV series, Easy is an insightful and realistic look at dating and relationships.

Dec 20, 2017 | Full Review…

In the worst stories, like a truly irksome doubleheader about artisanal breweries, the characters resemble the "Portlandia" ensemble, minus the satire. But even the best are full of passionate banality.

May 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Easy's full-on individualization of perspective comes at the expense of any real consideration of Chicago's broader structural realities. And it's this stubbornly small-stakes focus that ultimately makes Easy feel somewhat false.

May 9, 2019 | Full Review…

As in the first season of "Easy," the eight new episodes are of varying merit, varying intensity, varying force of imagination-and the best of them are reflexive and personal in a distinctive new way.

May 9, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a little patchy, but as a whole stronger than the casual air of its 30-minute-ish episodes initially suggests

    This show is amazing

    Some episodes are interesting but some are so bogged down by fragile male egos that are supposed to stand in for storylines. Even the female characters are written how a “basic” dude would like women to act. Some storylines have such potential but the testosterone is blinding.
