Critic Reviews for SMILF: Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16)

Shaw's good but her televised autobiography is a work in progress that can't quite settle on tone, meaning or direction. Even the series title is frustrating.

You won't spend long dwelling on the title, but you'll want to stick with this story.

But then, in episode three, Shaw seems to find her footing, and I found myself thinking that SMILF could develop a Shameless-like charm.

It's funny, sad and poignant all at once.

Comedically, it's somewhere between Fleabag and Divorce, being both surprisingly explicit and emotionally tender, while remaining true to the humanity of its women on the verge.
