Critic Reviews for I Love Dick Season 1

All Critics (60) | Top Critics (31)

At points, it's as thin as its titular joke, a pun that the script leans on like a fifth-grader with a new command of naughty words.

May 10, 2017 | Full Review…

This is such a defiantly unique program, from the way it embraces sexuality to the meta-commentary it makes not just on itself but the people watching and enjoying it.

May 8, 2017 | Full Review…

At a moment when subjects like masculinity, femininity, and authority all but demand a hard edge and shriek of urgency, I Love Dick is forthright but ultimately gentle in the way it takes them on... It is the strangest sort of escapist television.

May 26, 2017 | Full Review…

What's here is rich and compelling, sure to stir discussion, and a worthy extension of the groundbreaking book that inspired it.

Basically twisted, but very daringly so, Amazon Prime's I Love Dick has a title that in fact fits like a customized condom.

Top Critic

Absorbing in parts, tedious in others, but Hahn is great.

Top Critic

The way the series both embodies and mocks progressive pretentions in the art world is brilliant.

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a heady mix, but it doesn't cohere into something more than a grab bag of intellectual signifiers.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Perhaps the biggest issue with the show is that it wallows in its pretentiousness at times.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5 | Full Review…

A very rare series, the history of an obsession and also a reflection on art and on sex from the feminine point of view. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Both on and off screen, I Love Dick allowed us to imagine the future we're currently creating.

Jan 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Ostensibly a love letter to a grizzled cowboy, I Love Dick is actually an ode to women everywhere.

Audience Reviews for I Love Dick: Season 1

  • Jul 23, 2019
    Genius with dialogue, thought, music, single makers use....give us more of these amazing actors making us think with their tiniest of movements, their tiniest of words, their tiniest of insecurities....can you not write a season 2? Without stopping?! Feel your audiences need for this!

    Despite its sexy, ironic title I love dick is the smartest show on TV. Show creator Jill Soloway had this to say about the nature of her show “I can't imagine there's ever been a more feminist television show.” And how true it is as her characters in much the same way as her first show Transparent, inhabit sexual contradictions within their lives that harmoniously creates inner turmoil for drama and irony for comedy. Soloway wrote this role for actor Kathryn Hahn to play on these contradictions, as her character is a self-proclaimed feminist with a taboo obsession for her husband’s colleague. Drama ensues and jokes are made about the art world and the pretentious nature of academia. No one is left off the chopping block of Soloway’s hilarious criticism, as everyone is much more than surface value of how they want to be seen vs how they really are: dynamic, evolving, sexual creatures that should never be defined in the first place.

    Revolutionary introspective high art that tells raw truths and shatters the glass ceiling in a way that might disturb the minds of the mainstream masses. In a word: Genius.
  • Sep 26, 2017
    Flat, weak, not funny, uninteresting, shi**y film making with some serious bullsh*t like "frozen frames" and big red screens with idiotic uninspiring "claims" written by 16yo on her facebook wall. F*ck this.

    Watching paint dry naked! WHY Kevin Bacon?

    The series blooms at episode 5.

    I was able to watch the pilot, but I didn't care for it.

    The concept of adapting Chris Kraus' feminist favorite novel I Love Dick into a TV series immediately comes off as a folly, but when one brings up that it's being handled by Transparent-creator Jill Soloway than such an idea comes off as nothing less than irresistible. Altering and expanding on the source material in a way that still captures the prose's ethos, Soloway's tv series is a brilliantly rich gender study, as well as a vivid and authentic look into the art world, that's simultaneously raw and tender in a way that eclipses Soloway's past work. It's a bit unexpected how natural it feels too, as those that have read the book will certainly attest that the epistolary nature of it would seem difficult to communicate off the page, but Soloway does it with an effectively minimalist approach, and a great cast. Kathryn Hahn, perhaps best known for her side-character role on Transparent, gives her strongest performance to date as the show's fictionalized iteration of Chris Kraus, and she proves to have great chemistry with both of the character's love interests (played by Griffin Dunne and Kevin Bacon). It's certainly a series that will mainly appeal to those with a feminist and/or art-world base (it references everything from Kathy Acker to Chantal Akerman), but its gender politics are universal, and the writing never lets the show get caught up in pretension, with plenty of fun scenarios and dialogue that is intelligent but accessible. About as close to revolutionary as television gets these days, and another great new series for 2017.

    that is one of the most humorous name of a tv show ever.
