Critic Reviews for On Becoming a God in Central Florida Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (28)

As "On Becoming a God" mixes humor and human tragedy, [Kirsten] Dunst's Krystal emerges as a figure of strength who finds her power when her back is against a wall.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

What's so brilliant about "On Becoming a God in Central Florida" is that it takes the seemingly unrelatable world of a company built on taking advantage of people and weds it to something we can all understand. And it does so with wit and charm.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The pitch-black comedy about desperation, anxiety, and self-delusion is not afraid to be deeply weird.

Sep 16, 2019 | Full Review…

On Becoming A God's sense of humor is sharp and peculiar, easily cutting through the plot's bleaker moments without actually distracting from them.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

A clever, compelling, and thorough evisceration of American capitalism...

Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Going broader and broader in this case doesn't feel like a natural progression; it honestly feels like an expansion of an idea that's more like a movie in order to make it into a series.

Aug 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Boasts strong female characters, deceptive depth and a wicked sense of humour that will make for perfect summer evening binge-watching.

Dec 3, 2020 | Full Review…

It is likely that the relative success of an interesting series, with an extraordinary Kirsten Dunst, executive producer and absolute protagonist, is due to the disorder of its first chapters. [Full review in Spanish]

Feb 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Is possibly among the best [television series] of the year - if its last three episodes are not judged. [Full review in Spanish]

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Not only does this new show feel refreshing in and of itself, it also morphs into a tragic look of the impact that money can give over to human beings.

Dec 26, 2019 | Full Review…

"On Becoming a God in Central Florida" meanders, even falters, as it struggles to find its tonal footing, but it remains completely, unapologetically unpredictable.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

There are some fantastic performances in OBAG, starting with [Kirsten] Dunst and continuing with Théodore Pellerin as Cody, the true believer who first recruited the Stubbs for the pyramid scheme.

Audience Reviews for On Becoming a God in Central Florida: Season 1

  • Dec 03, 2020
    Excellent series with an extraordinary Kristen Dunst, I love this actress of a magnificent talent who raises the whole series, an excellent screenplay and a nice sarcastic vision of money. A black sarcastic comedy, where we laugh in certain situations and we stoke the underlying plot of the dramatic side, the whole is very coherent and with this main actress who shines there, she alone ignites the whole series.

    Slow pacing. Meandering narrative. Mirthful at best.
  • Dec 31, 2019
    Loved it! I want more! When is the next season start?
  • Dec 10, 2019
    I love Kirsten dunst
  • Dec 02, 2019
    Great times binge watching this!

    Dunst is a fucking Earth treasure
  • Nov 30, 2019
    I rarely like American comedy, but this had me hooked from the start. Kirsten Dunst is phenomenal, in what is probably the best small-screen female performance of the year. The plot takes so many unexpected twists and turns exposing the vulnerable, melancholic, hilarious and down right evil sides of scammers and suckers in this world. I can't believe the show is not rating higher. I wish I could give it 10 stars- five for Kirsten and five for the show!

    loved it , great story
  • Nov 20, 2019
    Sarcastic, witty and surprising. Amazing perfomance of Kirsten Dunst.
  • Oct 22, 2019
    Kirsten Dunst is brilliant in this show that is not quite like anything you've seen. Beth Ditto is also a stand out. It's flying under the radar but hopefully it will get some awards love
