Getting On: Season 2 (2014)



Critic Consensus: Getting On continues to work by poking fun at a typically serious theme and the psychological drama surrounding it, with a dose of laugh-out-loud slapstick injected into a big, sweet heart.

Critic Reviews for Getting On Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

Boy, is the show funny.

Humor so dark you'll be embarrassed for laughing, fun rooted in death and dying, a sendup of the soul-killing bureaucracy of health-care institutions -- that's Getting On, the best comedy you're not watching.

Nov 7, 2014 | Full Review…

When Getting On truly shines is when it shrugs off the wink-wink-gasp rhythms of the comedy it wants to be and relaxes into the tough, uncompromising series it actually is.

Nov 7, 2014 | Full Review…

What Getting On does so well is pivot from humor to sadness. It's almost Chekovian in the way that it walks the line between comedy and tragedy. It's a dark comedy- heavy on the dark. Yet, I think that's appropriate given the subject matter.

Nov 17, 2014 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

It is a dark, unblinking comedy, offering unvarnished truths taken to extremes about subjects rarely shown on television-death and the care of the elderly.

Laurie Metcalf's performance, along with her role in the network sitcom The McCarthys make her TV's comedy powerhouse of the season. She does some amazing stuff.

Nov 10, 2014 | Full Review…

It's funny, sad, and happy all at the same time.

Nov 7, 2014 | Full Review…

"Now in its six-episode second season, the superb workplace comedy continues to explore themes of power, gender, class, corporatization, mortality, and the mysteries of the stuff that comes out of our butts."

Dec 3, 2014 | Rating: 90/100 | Full Review…

Getting On finds great comedic tension between the gravitas of getting on (as in getting old and dying) and the levity required for getting on (as in just getting through the workday).
