News & Interviews for SMILF: Season 1
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.
The old "misery loves company" axiom gets a stern test with Showtime's SMILF.
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.
The show shows promise under Shaw's care. However, the spark hasn't totally caught fire in its opening.
SMILF might turn off some viewers due to its somewhat raw attitude. But sometimes rawness is necessary when you want honesty.
SMILF also raises questions of feminism, of women's empowerment, of morality ... and all without wanting to give lessons of anything in reality. [Full Review in Spanish]
SMILF offers a tender but clear-eyed look at what it is like to live on the poverty line and struggle.
Audience Reviews for SMILF: Season 1
May 26, 2019This one tugs at you until you finally have to admit that beneath it all is a very powerful core narrative.
May 10, 2019The first season was funny. The second season was a waste of time.
May 04, 2019"SMILF" has seeds of greatness hidden beneath a veneer of veneer, hard to explain, it's humbling when you see that it went right over your head before it hits you. You think you're getting it and then you see you're not and then you see the sheer brilliance. Bergman, The Sopranos, Kurosawa, Deadwood, you just know you're experiencing the most that art can offer. "SMILF" just sort of sneaks up on you. Every aspect is superb, but you need patience and yes, even humility. Also, Rosie O'Donnell is a revelation, Frankie Shaw is a freakin' genius.
Apr 01, 2019Love it, I hope the show gets picked up by another network or something.
Mar 26, 2019Add ten more stars! Single moms can relate!!
Mar 25, 2019I can't grasp it. Nice idea, nice acting but it's boring :( Re-watch Weeds.
Mar 24, 2019OMG.. Just started watching this.. and soooo funny!!!
Jan 14, 2019Expected this show to be stupid. was pleasantly surprised when some very real moments in motherhood and single motherhood were explored. I honestly expected this to be a funny show trashing on a poor single mom buts its got a lot of redeeming moments. not bad!
Nov 14, 2018how can you not love her
Jan 19, 2018Unapologetic and honest television being made right here! Hopefully, it doesn't run on too long as less could be more.
