Critic Consensus: Though sometimes juvenile in nature, Getting On finds the funny, even in a somber setting, with humorous yet sensitive narratives and characterizations.

News & Interviews for Getting On: Season 1
If you like comedy with more cringes than chuckles, Getting On could be for you.
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.
