The stakes, in other words, couldn't be much higher. I Am Cait now has no choice but to get this right.

I Am Cait mimics typical reality TV by trying to force dramatic narratives onto day-to-day life. And while spotting the fakeness was part of the fun of the Kardashians, here it verges on counterproductive.

E!'s Caitlyn Jenner reality show I Am Cait is the opposite of trainwreck TV - orchestrated, yes, but still authentic, with moments that moved me to tears and a higher purpose beyond moving Kardashian-related merchandise.

It's deep stuff.

Jul 24, 2015 | Full Review…

I Am Cait is a respectable TV show with noble motives that easily evades my worst anxieties for it. And in doing so, it slams into what I never, ever could have imagined for it: dullness.

The show educates without exploiting it subjects.

What I Am Cait did best of all was educate indirectly via the reactions of others. Instead of exploring gender identity through the reactions of insightful Facebook commenters, the series gave us people close to Caitlyn.

After watching the first episode, it feels like Caitlyn Jenner's new docuseries I Am Cait could be the most resonant and groundbreaking piece of television to come around in a long time.

Jan 14, 2019 | Full Review…

The biggest surprise of the summer is how many real, earnest, truly moved tears I have cried over I Am Cait, which, despite its detour into Karsashianville last week, has actually served as a sort of mini-documentary to educate.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

This look at Caitlyn Jenner adjusting to life as a woman, is a thoughtful and sensitive piece of television. Viewed on its own of course it feels like just more trashy reality celeb stuff. Everything is relative I guess.

Apr 26, 2017 | Full Review…

E!'s new docu- series following Caitlyn Jenner's brave, scary and sensationally well-coiffed early months living her life openly as a woman.

Nov 4, 2015 | Full Review…

The lack of drama/conflict could be a point for the program, as a way of showing us that Caitlyn Jenner and other transgender persons are just normal - i.e., boring - people.

Audience Reviews for I Am Cait: Season 1

    Why are these critics giving this show super high ratings???!!! Do they really want us to keep being force-fed this Kardashian/reality TV crap that is saturating the airwaves???!!!
  • Aug 28, 2015
    As usual, the paid critics get is so freaking wrong.
  • Aug 24, 2015
    I know this is for a good cause, but it is more like an infomercial.
  • Aug 24, 2015
    She is an inspiration to those that are struggling with their own gender identity. An opportunity to understand the struggle within is thought provoking, insightful, and, hopefully, earns our compassion and respect for their decisions and struggles.
  • Aug 20, 2015
    This isn't inspirational. Its just shit
  • Aug 14, 2015
    The critics' reviews of this show is reminiscent of the Oscar nomination for"Twelve Years a Slave"; just because a movie is directed by or stars people of historically oppressed, mistreated, and/or persecuted communities, doesn't means it's any good. This show is just an ego-booster, showing that Caitlyn, like the rest of the Kardashians, is better off ignored.
  • Aug 03, 2015
    It's sad that a show this important in boring
  • Aug 03, 2015
    An informative, beautiful docu-series, that everyone needs to watch. I Am Cait is more related to an HBO docu-drama, than the Kardashian reality series.
  • Jul 31, 2015
    Mix the gossip style of Keeping Up with The Kardashians and the superhero vibe from Arrow or The Flash and you got I am Cait, where Bruce Jenner after becoming a woman discovers she has magic powers and is going to save every LGBT kid from the greatest enemy of all times, suicide. Watch Cait fight her sworn enemy each week while discovering why girls need sports bra.

    omg I love this women, I didn't not know about her before and when I saw her masterpiece photo by Anne (if im not mistaking) could not wait to watch her. as for movie, her life here is not typical here, even based on LGBT standarts but general view seems quite American. I also like the documentary approach to the movie.
