Critics Consensus

The narcissism of social media is no less annoying on TV than it is on a computer screen or iPhone, but Selfie's leads raise hopes for something more substantial.

Critic Reviews for Selfie Season 1

All Critics (60) | Top Critics (29)

I'm cautiously optimistic that there is a very entertaining show lurking beneath its shallow and annoying surface.

Top Critic

There's the usual assortment of quirky neighbors/co-workers, none of whom register as more than caricatures in the pilot, and the social media buzzwords sprinkled with abandon throughout the pilot comes off as hashtag desperate.

Sep 30, 2014 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Karen Gillan and John Cho are likable - and an example of this season's commendable color-blind casting - but the premise wears thin.

Sep 30, 2014 | Full Review…

It's a charming dance, and [Karen] Gillan and [John] Cho play it with the proper froth.

Sep 30, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

By the end of Tuesday's premiere, the opening puke-fest is almost out of mind.

Gillan and Cho have solid chemistry, as any good Eliza and Henry need to have to make the transformation of both characters complete.

Sep 29, 2014 | Full Review…

I like comedies with depth, and Selfie has plenty of it.

Mar 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

And in the end, that beating heart of Selfie is what made it such a promising series.

Feb 28, 2020 | Full Review…

There's a strong message that we all need to hear if we're the type of people who can't sit through a long wedding without playing our favorite gaming app.

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

This is where the issues with Selfie's premise come in. Eliza's behavior needs changing in some obvious way, but there's something inherently uncomfortable about an older man telling a young woman how to behave herself.

Feb 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Here it is. Take a picture. Then delete the picture, because this probably is the worst new comedy of the fall.

Sep 15, 2014 | Full Review…

The best thing it has going for it is its status as the fall's best new half-hour comedy, and that's in large part due to the highly entertaining dynamic between its leads.

Audience Reviews for Selfie: Season 1

  • Nov 02, 2018
    The leads chemistry is incredible, a decent show with an unfortunately dumb name.
  • Dec 20, 2015
    Very clever show, deserved FAR better (like a guaranteed full season).
  • Apr 07, 2015
    Excellent performances from leads Karen Gillan and John Cho, smart writing with clever jokes, and a high production value! The characters of Eliza and Henry are also excellent and well written, and they develop very well throughout the series! The supporting characters were also good, but the actors performances were just average. Except David Harewood, his character as the manager was perfect, his performance was great, and he definitely made me laugh the most! And the finale was good! Granted, probably not what most people would have wanted, but I thought it worked really well. The first half (7 episodes) which I call the TV half, was good, but the second half (6 episodes) which I call the Hulu half, was great! This whole show is phenomenal and should not have been cancelled!

    cool series, it is offensive that closed ?.? I they thought I will be together, and all broke off and so anything and didn't occur. It is impossible to tear off everything so

    Great show. Love the characters. The actors are talented. The story has depth and meaning.
  • Jan 08, 2015
    My favorite show! #1
  • Jan 05, 2015
    I mostly watched this show because I have a little crush on Karen Gillan. I suspected that it might get cancelled from the get-go, but I'm really sad it did in the end. It wasn't a perfect show, but I think it was good enough to continue. There are a lot worse shows that should have been cancelled before this one.

    One of the best comedy series in 2014, sadly ABC is too dumb to give it a chance.
  • Jan 02, 2015
    I'm so glad we live in a world where there are so many different platforms to distribute media. Since this show unfortunately couldn't gain a strong following on ABC, Hulu scooped up the remaining episodes of probably one of the top new comedies this year. Yes, I absolutely HATED the pilot. The barf bags were true disgusting, Eliza's wig was atrocious, and the story the show seemed to be trying to tell just seemed trite and irrelevant. But then something changed. The chemistry between Eliza and Henry was off the walls, which seemed totally cute and friendly in the pilot and eventually turned to full-blown romance. The characters became super quirky, but likable, and it was obvious that the leads and even supporting cast were extremely talented. And everything was suddenly funny, like laugh out loud funny. I'll admit, I'm into pretty quirky stuff, so maybe if they aired the remaining episodes on TV, the show would have still alienated viewers (especially after the surprisingly serious and dark turn it took during a night of karaoke). But there is no doubt this show had a unique voice and could have had several seasons of funny and sweet story arcs. I'm so sad it ended too soon, but happy we got to see it at its best.
