Inside Amy Schumer: Season 4 Reviews

September 17, 2018
Schumer is as brazen and politically conscious as ever, but this season feels less personal and less urgent than last season...and more formulaic-sometimes even bordering on lazy.
September 17, 2018
It's not clear if Season 4's relative mildness is a result of Schumer's split focus...but Amy still packs in plenty of solid laughs.

For Inside Amy Schumer to bounce back, it perhaps needs to veer away from her newfound superstardom and back toward the blunt, abrasive honesty that made her a success to begin with.
September 17, 2018
Between seasons 3 and 4, Schumer became a bonafide movie star, but instead of treating "Inside" like a day job, she's continuing to use it as a platform. Sometimes she strikes out, but she's still got a hell of a swing.

Schumer's dark, violent sketches make us laugh even as they pack a much-needed gut punch. This isn't to say the current season of Inside Amy Schumer isn't funny. She adeptly and hilariously spoofs broad pop culture genres.

Inside Amy Schumer upped the level of naughty sketch comedy last season and seemingly keeps up the pace as season four starts.
April 22, 2016
All the sketches are well-produced, well-cast, and well-acted, but most are disappointingly underwritten, unfocused, or repetitive.

Even though what I've seen of season four isn't quite as funny as I'd like it to be, I hope that Schumer's benign tyranny of mainstreaming feminism isn't ending anytime soon.
April 21, 2016
So there's nothing terribly bad about the new Inside Amy Schumer. But there's also no sketch here that comes close to previous-season wonderfulness.
April 21, 2016
Given Schumer's success, the audience is expecting that genius on a rather more reliable basis. I'm sure it's coming, even if it isn't evident right out of the gate.
April 21, 2016
The comedian's back to basics (albeit now with a few celebrity friends) by making the same kind of sketches that made her famous and crafting a few viral hits along the way.
April 21, 2016
Still funny without being revelatory, the new season may represent a crossroads of sorts for Schumer: Can the former underdog strike the same rich comedic veins now that she's a star?
April 20, 2016
There are jokes about what it means to be an everyday woman, but they're sprinkled in among jokes about what it must be like to be Amy Schumer, and it messes with the voice of the show.

They're all funny and - even better than that - smart. Fans will be pleased. The hotness will only grow hotter.
