News & Interviews for Haters Back Off!: Season 1
Kudos to Netflix for having the vision to elevate this antic, sometimes wise, often laugh-out-loud funny case of art imitating life imitating art to another rightful place.
It feels very good watching so unsympathetic a character (the sort who berates her mom for failing to give her an A-plus on her homeschool quiz) get her comeuppances - until, of course, it suddenly doesn't.
By moving the scope of her comedy and worldview, Ballinger gets at something that is not only a cultural critique but often hits on the fragility of egos and everyone's need for acceptance.
Ballinger's efforts are very have your cake and eat it too, and fairly potent in short bursts. Put Miranda in her own half-hour eight-episode Netflix series, however, and the lampoon loses its edge.
While the discord is earned, the tonal shifts don't always jibe. It's not enough of a deviation to throw Haters Back Off! off the rails, though, so there's no need to heed the warning when partaking of this new comedy.
What's great about Haters Back Off! is it expands a fun world in a way that helps a character leap from micro-content to the 30-minute format.
Maybe in more adept hands, Haters Back Off might have been a beacon series for the uncool kids, à la Napoleon Dynamite or even Parks and Recreation.
I took the show's title as permission to stop watching after one episode.
[Colleen] Ballinger's series is gross, weird, and cringe inducing, but damn it's so funny.
What we get... is just a painfully unwatchable tirade of actors and actresses who know they can do a lot better than this.
Audience Reviews for Haters Back Off!: Season 1
Apr 24, 2020Funny? It's decent. Good? Sure. An okay watch? If you like it
Nov 07, 2019Quirky and true to the youtube character- I understand why some viewers didn't get it, but I loved it!
Sep 21, 2019This show is so funny! The dumbness of the main character and her uncle is so scary that its funny.
Sep 13, 2019This show is garbage. Its humor is low-brow and while some reviewers seem to think is just too complex for me to "get", I will offer this example. In a particularly offensive episode I walked in on, the main character is getting dressed as a taco with the words "LICK MY TACO" stenciled in big letters on it. While getting into the costume, she asks her crush, "Can you zip my slit?" This show is rated PG and available for children in the restricted "for children" settings. Netflix execs should be cringing at this fact...and the fact that the show just isn't any good.
Jul 29, 2018I like it! Like a lot!
Apr 11, 2018The reason for this show generating general disappointment or "hate" is partly because it is a transition of a character born on Youtube to a series with long episodes. Even before watching it, one might assume that it will just be an opportunity for Miranda Sings fans to get more insight into her personal life. They might expect it to have the same purpose as a Youtuber book. Another reason for this show not being adored might be because aside from its comedic aspects, it is tragic. Most parts of the show and what the show is actually based on is depressing, some parts even hard to watch. It is much more than a Youtube video of a funny character because once the audience imagines her to be a real person who could actually exist, it seems unreal and complicated to understand why she acts like she does. Once we get past this barrier of the complexity of the ideas put behind this character, it becomes something so unique and special that it raises questions about what people in today's society have become. There are many ways to look at it and what part of the human psyche this character incorporates. Unfortunately, it is misunderstood due to the link made with its simple and slightly superficial origins.
Mar 09, 2018I love the Miranda character and this really showcases Colleen's talent, joined by the brilliant Steve Little and almost-brilliant Angela Kinsey. Unfortunately, the show's a bit dramedy for my tastes. I watched every episode but poverty, the backdrop to the show, isn't really funny. Eking out two 8-episode seasons was probably very hard; possibly a tighter single season with an eventual payoff of the character achieving fame and recognition, or even ignomy, would have been more rewarding.
Dec 06, 2017Me and my fiance love it and wanted to see more sad Netflix took it out it was funny and entertaining.
Dec 03, 2017So funny:) I luv Miranda Sings. She is my favorite youtuber.
Nov 17, 2017Fun TV show. Available in lots of languages on Netflix. (including english, french, german, italian and spanish) This is not my favorite TV show, but it's fun to watch with family. Good movie for at least 9 year-olds.
