Critic Reviews for One Mississippi Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

Compassion is universal, and Notaro's three refined love stories bring out the best in everyone.

Top Critic

The delight and frustration of "One Mississippi" are one and the same, in that it runs swiftly and with meaning through a seasonal arc that launches and sticks its landing within six episodes.

Sep 8, 2017 | Full Review…

It takes on quite a bit this time around, and it's to be commended for not just deepening its characters but also for also resolutely taking on the state of the nation -- at least as it exists in one small Southern town.

Top Critic

There's a different kind of assertion of power at work here. It's a tricky story about telling tricky stories, and about how you make art from the ones you've been told not to tell.

Oct 2, 2017 | Full Review…

The second season of One Mississippi is an impressive balancing act.

There is a certain sentimental aura that, without being excessive, involves the series perfectly integrated with what it is: a song to life. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 8, 2019 | Full Review…

The second season of deadpan comic Tig Notaro's semi-autobiographical comedy is scary in unexpected ways.

Dec 29, 2017 | Full Review…

While almost every comedy on television has some romantic element or subplot to it, relationships are often used as a plot device or feel like an afterthought. That's a big reason why One Mississippi's second season is such a sweet and pure delight.

Dec 19, 2017 | Full Review…

The grace of One Mississippi is that it takes on difficult topics of sexual harassment, racism and other divides in the country, including the presidential election, in a wry sideways manner that makes its point without being confrontational.

Sep 7, 2017 | Full Review…

It feels like Notaro is back in the driver's seat, and her character's obsession with storytelling reflects that.

Sep 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Its rhythm and mood doesn't always leave the biggest impression, but when it hits, it wallops.

Sep 14, 2017 | Full Review…

When One Mississippi ties these stories together, it registers as an antidote to the very notion of "flyover country," to the sneering and chiding of liberals blind to the injustices that exist in their own backyard.

Audience Reviews for One Mississippi: Season 2

  • Jun 11, 2020
    loving this show its a classic
  • Apr 07, 2020
    Amazing show, raising many taboo and unspoken topics in a fine cinematography.
  • Feb 27, 2018
    Best show I have seen in years. Bring on Season 3!!!
  • Dec 17, 2017
    The sophomore year for One Mississippi is just as strong as the initial one, and at times even eclipses it. Tig Notaro remains as singular a character as ever (admittedly to the point that the show's other characters can feel bland in comparison), and her show truly captures her unique world view. It's also certainly a different world than in had been in season 1 (prior to the election), and One Mississippi seems poised to confront issues such as bigotry and sexual harassment, and it always does this with tach and aplomb. Despite the dark material, the show still has a resonant feel-good vibe to it, and Tig and Kate's relationship make for one of the sweetest same-sex pairings you're likely to find on American TV. With the show's future being in a grey area due to Louis C.K.'s involvement as a producer, here's hoping that this isn't the last season for this distinct half-hour of subversive comedy.
