Shrill: Season 1 (2019)



Critic Consensus: Sharp social commentary and a star-making performance from Aidy Bryant help Shrill overcome its familiar comedic sensibilities to create a show that proves self-acceptance isn't one size fits all.

Critic Reviews for Shrill Season 1

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (20)

Even the weightiest scenes don't abandon Annie's wry, casual sense of humor. She's a fascinating character, played by a fascinating performer, and Bryant makes "Shrill" worth watching all by herself.

Shrill is a marvelous piece of writing and acting, a meeting of Bryant's vibe and West's.

Nothing's official yet, but at this point, Hulu must know it has something very worth holding onto.

Bryant, who even when she's playing self-obsessed-becoming a self-actualized human being may require a wee bit of egomania-is extremely appealing.

It's a humane slice of life...with plot strands that sit together effortlessly and side characters who are richly drawn...

Bryant's a standout, the show not so much.

Shrill offers a more realistic view of the changing feelings around women's bodies. There's a life beyond size and a love and appreciation for the size you're in.

In Shrill the literal weight represents the weight of the story itself. [Full Review in Spanish]

But while Shrill would succeed just based on its witty dialogue and well-crafted characters, what truly sets it apart from anything else on TV is its unique perspective.

This show desperately cries out for a second season, and a third, and a fourth.

Audience Reviews for Shrill: Season 1

If u like this you will probably like Dietland too.

I love Aidy Bryant. But the end made it stupid as hell.

I love the body positivity this show offers, the friendship between Fran and Annie is so real, so glad I binged this, so sad I have to wait for season 2!

Non of my friends found it very appealing to watch, neither did I.

Ummmmmm I���m OBSESSED. Wow. Every, pls watch this show. Keep your mind open and soak it all in. See things from others point of view.

made through half of the first episode , should be called cringe not shrill

So bad. Couldn't make it through the first episode.

The script feels a little... robotic at times, at least for a comedy. On the bright side, Annie's a well written protagonist who is easy to care about. The season kinda ends on a weird note, left me saying, "Wait, that's it?!" I'll be watching again when it comes back.

Horribly Manipulative

Wait? We can make social commentary that doesn't beat you over the head with the message? Aidy Bryant delivers a beautifully crafted performance.
