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

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (23)

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…

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.

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

Top Critic

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.

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.

Rather than inspiring me to reckon with the system of injustice we've created, the season finale mostly left me feeling cold.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | 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.

Dec 4, 2019 | 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]

    Great times binge watching this!

    Dunst is a fucking Earth treasure

    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

    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

    Kristen Dunst is amazing in this show! I really like the themes and plot explored in this series and the performance of all the actors.
  • Oct 20, 2019
    I wanted to love this show for its satire of the ridiculous world of MLM, but its portrayal of the world outside MLM is so full of unrealistic nonsense that it ruins the suspension of disbelief and makes the wacky world of MLM seem somehow reasonable by comparison.
