Critic Reviews for Getting On: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (15)

It's one of the most highly unlikely excellent shows I've seen.

If you like comedy with more cringes than chuckles, Getting On could be for you.

November 25, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

HBO's new series Getting On is sad and frequently disgusting... If that's not a sufficiently strong endorsement, we should point out that it's also one of the funniest and most moving shows to come out this year.

It's almost as impossible to believe, without seeing it, that such a show could be both very funny and occasionally uplifting without ever resorting to cheap sentimentality. But it is.

Getting old -- or "getting on" for the purposes of the title -- is nothing to look forward to here. But discovering a new series of such unexpectedly high caliber is good reason to celebrate.

It's that sort of moment - where the absurdity of the hospital's rules meets with what should be an everyday occurrence and turns it into chaos - that Getting On does well.

Haven't laughed so hard in a while, Getting On balances humour with thought provoking themes to craft an excellent comedy. I loved every character in their awkward situations, it's a must watch.
