Critic Reviews for Flowers Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

Even if they never appear on our screens again, these characters will stay with us and hopefully positively impact the way we approach mental health in the real world, in each other's lives and in our own.

Too dark to be treated as a comedy, yet too madcap in its execution to stay within the confines of conventional drama.

Jun 18, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Not only very funny, marrying pitch-black humour to a surreal yet intensely English sensibility, it was also an affecting study of despair.

Jun 12, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The show is routinely described as a 'dark comedy'. But that doesn't come close to capturing its exhilarating, unselfconscious originality.

[It's] a Beckettian look at mental illness through a kaleidoscopic magic realist lens doused in folklore and gothic imagery, this is tragicomedy at its absolute best.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It is almost indefinable, certainly impossible to shoehorn into any known genre - but it's constantly and crazily inspired, inventive, gloomily funny.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Taken as a whole, the second bunch of Flowers turns out to be a finely balanced six-parter, though large chunks of the frenetically filmed and wildly scripted show.

If you didn't stay for part two [of Flowers] it's a pity because here it found its stride.

Jun 11, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It verges on being too fantastical and self-indulgent. Nevertheless, there are enough sharply observed sketches and doses of silly humour to keep it going.

    THE BEST thing I have ever seen on TV

    if this is what passes for comedy nowadays, then I'll pass. Too over the top to be remotely funny. A dog's breakfast.
