Critics Consensus

Lady Dynamite's meta humor escalates in a sophomore season that doubles down on the series' freewheeling sensibility, with Maria Bamford's deeply felt performance providing a mesmerizing center amid the stylistic chaos.

Critic Reviews for Lady Dynamite Season 2

If you need a break from the awfulness of the world, Lady Dynamite is here

Nov 13, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

There's a touch of that-which-doesn't-kill-you-will-make-you-funnier. There's also the occasional sense that she's working through something so painful, so intimate, that the only way to avoid the abyss is to confront it head-on.

Nov 9, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Kookily innovative in its storytelling and style, it all makes its own kind of divine sense, while upholding a weird spiritual optimism.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

It resists bingeing-the show is exhausting, in the great way that certain comedy makes you feel worked up and giddy and overwrought.

Nov 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Lady Dynamite is something much better, if harder to grasp.

Nov 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Lady Dynamite is a deeply personal work, in plot as well as sensibility.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Clearly, Lady Dynamite, which was co-created by Pam Brady (South Park) and Mitchell Hurwitz (Arrested Development), has lost none of its fearlessness or flair for the ridiculous.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Lady Dynamite takes itself to newly unhinged narrative and stylistic places. It remains a refreshing and unmistakable sitcom

Nov 29, 2017 | Full Review…

The show is so clever that it even references Netflix itself in the look of the logo for the production company that produces Maria's futuristic show.

Nov 29, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Season 2 is both stranger than the first and more aggressively meta.

Nov 29, 2017 | Full Review…

In its second season, the show remains brightly colored and brittle and funny and kind of exhausting.

Nov 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Maria Bamford's Lady Dynamite season 2 comes to Netflix as unique, bonkers, and quick-witted as ever.
