Critics Consensus

The outrageously singular Julia Davis delivers yet another impeccable performance in Sally4Ever, masterfully walking the line between side-splitting and cringe-worthy comedy.

Critic Reviews for Sally4Ever Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (19)

I found it very funny for all its rawness, viciousness and cruelty and I admire Davis's fearlessness and the masterful way she makes awful people so damned likable.

Feb 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Sally4Ever covers all bases: the driest wit, physical humour, gross-out vignettes that are almost too hard to watch, improvised set pieces.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

I love everything about Sally4Ever, assuming it's possible to love something that at its most excruciating can only be watched through the gaps between your fingers.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Julia Davis breathes new life into it with this tart miniseries...

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

There are also moments of proper brilliance.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm not certain U.S. viewers are -- or will ever be -- ready... Davis's comedy is bleak and frequently surreal. Her use of grotesque caricatures feels raunchy in a dark and theatrical fashion, like Harold Pinter writing for Melissa McCarthy.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Julia Davis, the English comedian, actor, writer and director who created the original (and better) version of Camping, brings a new cringe-comedy fest to HBO with Sally4Ever and it needs to be your new Brit-com obsession.

Nov 12, 2018 | Rating: 90/100 | Full Review…

Sally4Ever might be the funniest TV series of 2018.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

If you like cringe comedy, then Sally4Ever is the best in this category since Ricky Gervais ruled HBO in the mid-aughts.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

British comedy about bisexuality is for mature viewers only.

Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In theory, Davis's utter fearlessness is to be applauded. In practice, it still is - particularly as the brilliantly repellent action is accompanied by brilliantly repellent one-liners.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

It's honestly impossible to overstate just how hilarious and (literally, physically) cringe-inducing the comedy is in Sally4Ever.

Audience Reviews for Sally4Ever: Season 1

  • Mar 16, 2019
    I'm probably not the right audience for this one. Gave it a shot but found it boring and poorly written. Skip.
  • Feb 17, 2019
    As good and nighty night. Julia Davis is a treasure
  • Jan 11, 2019
    It's really hard to review this show. The actors are fantastic. But what am I supposed to make of this show? Who am I supposed to root for? Julia Davis probably has the best delivery in the show, but she's awful and I can't bear to watch her. She's, like, that bad--I don't want to watch her. But she's the best. Without including any spoilers, I want to warn any of you fecal-phobic folks out there to steer clear of this series.

    Sally4Ever reminds me of when I first watched AbFab: Eddie and Patsy were so awful it took an episode or two to get used to the biting comedy, Sally4Ever is ten times as extreme, with profane language and scatological humour that is guaranteed to offend many viewers, even those who may consider themselves broadminded. But the show is also outrageously funny, and I am glad I stuck with it as the show builds steam to the seventh hilarious episode. Will not be everybody's cup of tea, especially North American Puritans, but you won't forget it in a hurry. Highly recommended.

    This is one of the most hysterical shows I have ever seen. I am still rolling with laughter after watching the season finale!
  • Dec 27, 2018
    OMG! Funniest show we have watched this year. We couldn't wait for the next episode to see what would happen next!
  • Dec 24, 2018
    As uproarious as it is uplifting, Sally4Ever is a bright new spot for British television. Progressive in its focus on a same-sex relationship, while also being universal with it themes involving a milquetoast person entering a more liberating lifestyle, Sally4Ever already has a lot going for it conceptually, and it has the execution to make it all outstanding. Each episode is pristinely shot-and-edited, with wise use of music, and while it can be raunchy to an unbelievable level (even by today's standards) the show never resounds as anything less than human. The show is also highly unpredictable with its story, and ends on a note that's actually quite heartbreaking, so it's anyone's guess as to where it will go next year, but best believe I've already signed up for it!
  • Dec 16, 2018
    This would be much funnier if there was at least one character who wasn't repulsive. This is a series that is periodically quite funny, but almost completely without wit.
  • Dec 13, 2018
    Is it meant to be funny? Its NOT.
  • Nov 12, 2018
    It ttries very hard to be daring and fails miserably on some many levels. The characters are no even stereotypes just very tired cliches. My thoughts when watching this is that I was very glad that I didn't look at life teh way this show does.
