Mom: Season 2 Reviews

October 17, 2017
Now the series is a weekly dose of substance, one that stands out in a network-television universe full of nontraditional families and dysfunction. It manages the difficult trick of venturing into seriousness without growing overly maudlin or preachy.

In its second season, Mom has kicked the crap out of its main characters week after week, and they've come out of it with their wits sharpened.

These new episodes are clearly designed to showcase [Allison Janney]. But, with their heavy-handed, lecturing tone mixed with bawdy defiance, they don't end up serving anyone very well.

Mom finds laughter in pain as one of the very few socially relevant comedies anywhere on TV.

Mom remains funny, thanks in large part to the great work of Allison Janney as Christy's potty-mouthed mom, Bonnie.

That it's still funny is probably a kind of miracle, the kind you just might not want to miss.

Even if they're barely keeping hope alive through mordant laughter, Mom is oddly uplifting in its portrayal of scrappy survival against the economic odds.

Everything I like about Mom remains intact and rather than de-emphasizing the emotional bumpiness, Thursday's premiere is adding more layers.
