Critic Reviews for I'm Sorry Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

In this early batch of episodes, even when everyone on screen glances at one another through gritted teeth, there's an underlying sense of comfort in I'm Sorry that somehow puts the audience at ease.

Top Critic

We've been here so many times before that I'm beginning to suspect that they hand out these kinds of TV shows as easily as parking tickets.

Jul 18, 2017 | Full Review…

I'm Sorry never quite tries to be more than a series of moderately amusing anecdotes, which squarely limits its ability to compete with other, highly similar, more adventurous programs.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…
Top Critic

Early on the show feels like it's already in rhythm, which is a nice surprise.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…

This is a show about what happens when the compulsively comic mind meets the casually funny (or humorless) one, and what can seem the astonishing willingness of the professional comedian to violate taste and decorum.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…

That's I'm Sorry: Reliable, recommendable, satisfying, likable, consistent.

Top Critic

Many a show attempt to emulate the "isn't life super awkward and weird?" trope. I'm Sorry succeeds thanks to the sitcom's ability to create natural as opposed to contrived conflict.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

It's raunchy, vulgar, and abrasively honest, and the closest thing on television to what is basically the parenting version of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

What makes I'm Sorry worth watching is Savage's immense charm, which helps mitigate some of the series' thornier moments and more caustic humor.

Jul 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While I'm Sorry isn't hanging every story thread on some high concept plot, it is definitely delivering some of the funniest jokes on TV right now, and Andrea Savage is pitch-perfect while delivering the lioness' share of them.

Jul 17, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I like it. And if you're not easily offended, give it a couple of episodes and you just might like it, too.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Savage's character spends most of the time saying the wrong thing, and I kept [wondering] whether it would work better if it was Larry David saying these things. But I'm not so sure.

Audience Reviews for I'm Sorry: Season 1

  • Jul 28, 2020
    Raunchy but relatable comedy delivers legit laughs.
  • Jul 17, 2020
    The show is pretty funny and I enjoy watching it with my wife. Only problem I have with this show is Mike played by Tom Everett Scott. The writing or his acting doesn't seem to fit the show. I can't put my finger on it but it just doesn't seem to mesh.

    I wanted to like I'm sorry...desperate to binge anything funny during quarantine. Made it through 4 episodes and found her annoying, like nails on a chalkboard. Too bad...some great cast members who were stifled
  • Feb 22, 2020
    I can't even convey in words because I can't get off the floor laughing. This is America's Fleabag.

    This show was so fun and refreshing to watch!! It was so funny! I loved it!
  • Oct 28, 2019
    Quickly became a favorite. Well done, well written.
  • Oct 15, 2019
    It's Curb Your Enthusiasm but edgier and with a female protagonist. The premise is so over-played, but the plot is entirely unexpected and shocking. It's refreshing to watch a show about a woman that doesn't rely on female-protagonist tropes. Despite being unabashedly vulgar, I really admire Andrea. She is a fantastic mom and daughter, a devoted friend, and she has one of the healthiest on-screen relationships on tv. I cannot understand why this show doesn't get more attention.

    I watched it reluctantly and ended up getting cramps from laughing sooooo hard. This is worth it if you have exhausted all the typical Netflix recommendations. Such a good show.. Up there with Schitt's Creek and Working Moms.
  • Sep 27, 2019
    This show is absolutely crude and absolutely hilarious. I'm not someone who is typically able to stay captivated by comedy shows but this one holds my attention and makes me smile. The actors are fantastic and as simple as the plot points are, they're relatable and fun. Overall it's an innapropriate feel good show!
  • Sep 26, 2019
    Hilarious show with a great cast of characters. The comedian mom has great delivery of jokes (many of which are crude). She also has good chemistry with her more normal husband. The rest of the cast is a great compliment, including their younger daughter.
