Mrs. Fletcher

Critics Consensus

Mrs. Fletcher is an empathetic and poignant -- if at times incomplete -- character study that proves the perfect showcase for the luminous Kathryn Hahn.

It's content to let Hahn fill each beat, no matter how empty, knowing that if all else fails, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had in watching someone who likes to watch.

"Mrs. Fletcher" deserved better.

Oct 25, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The series benefits from two remarkably deft performers, who paint outside the lines of their characters. But in the end, I wanted more -- more insight, more illumination, more interrogation of the differences between sexual freedom and freedom itself.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Tasteful and tame, the miniseries, true to its MILF-y title, is I Love Dick's buttoned-up suburban sister.

Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a smart symmetry to Mrs. Fletcher, the superb new HBO limited series from writer-producer Tom Perrotta.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

So sweet in its devotion to blemished characters, so charming in developing their experimental dalliances...

Sep 11, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Much more subtle than I've made it sound, at its best it's little less than an exploration of loneliness, singledom, the raddling of a certain American dream.

Mar 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Mrs. Fletcher manages to break into new ground by also digging deep into desire, sexuality, and toxic masculinity. The result is a thoughtful and charming character study with plenty of reflective moments.

Dec 26, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a unique story that, while imperfect, deserves to be told. Mrs. Fletcher seems to be frustrating because being Mrs. Fletcher is frustrating -- and while that truth might not make for great TV, it's important to recognize all the same.

Dec 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Mrs. Fletcher starts as a slow burn, but in the end becomes a richly rewarding experience.

Dec 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Coming-of-age tales often follow kids on the precipice of adulthood, but Mrs. Fletcher shows how two people with very different trajectories can experience their own identity crises, sexual awakenings and the need to be loved at any point in life.

Nov 25, 2019 | Full Review…

[Eve's] exploration of sexuality and self is as triumphant and essential as it is messy and challenging.

    From one of my favorite creators Tom Perrotta. Love the show, totally relatable. We all have friend like Mrs. Fletcher, how someone reinvent them self into a totally different person. Mrs. Fletcher's character here is so interesting, gorgeous, and fun to watch. | Follow us at

    Better than sex education series. This is Female version of Californication. This is a Hot, Sexy, Comedy series with lot of tendency in it. Season 1 Ending was awesome. I thought they are going to keep this mini series for season 3 like sex education just to see a romance scene between Jane and Julian. But unexpected ending. Do not miss.....

    A season 2 would help, but I'm ok with not watching more of it.
  • Feb 17, 2020
    Wow! What did I just watch. It was barely ok (other than Mrs. Fletcher's very frequent and weird masturbating) until the end of 7th episode which was just gross and disturbing. Yucch! With degenerate parents like this, no wonder the kid was so screwed up. And all the stupid political correctness and preachy BS. Give me a break.

    The whole tranny storyline was a pretty big turn off. Otherwise this show was pretty shallow and dumb.
  • Jan 28, 2020
    HBO did again! I'm just hoping, no, begging for season 2!

    Katherine Hahn is brilliant in this series, with a delightful cast around her. Be forewarned: this is listed as a comedy but it is not. It has some funny moments but you can see the disappointment in some of the reviews here from people who were expecting some raucous sex farce. It's part family drama, part coming of age (for Mrs. Fletcher, it's no spoiler to tell you that the asshole son remains an asshole). Be prepared for a somewhat disappointing ending, though, although it may make sense as "our development never really ends" idea. I think what's most enjoyable outside of the plot is the wonderful collection of minor characters - her friends, classmates, the assortment of college students, all very real and quirky and believable. You know the utterly adorable Casey Wilson is going to be quirky and great, she always is, but almost all of the cast pulls off the same level of oddball verisimilitude.

    Had some real funny moments. Just not enough of them.
  • Dec 16, 2019
    Needs even more Hahn
  • Dec 16, 2019
    Awful. I can't believe I actually watched this garbage.
