    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

    It’s good – I’d recommend it.

Tv Season Info

This season finds Bridgette trying to move forward and focus on her future, while attempting to exorcise old ghosts and atone for past misdeeds. She's still toiling away in her day job working for narcissistic boss Ally (guest star Connie Britton). Meanwhile, Bridgette's mother Tutu (O'Donnell) rallies from a heartbreaking setback punctuated by the presence of her co-dependent younger sister Jackie (guest star Sherie Rene Scott). Ex-boyfriend Rafi (Miguel Gomez) and his girlfriend Nelson Rose (Samara Weaving) grow closer, while Eliza (Raven Goodwin, now a series regular) deals with her own family drama. Viewers will also go back in time to witness the highly unconventional birth of Bridgette's beloved son, Larry (Alexandra and Anna Reimer).

Critic Reviews for SMILF Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

Season 2 needs to refocus a few of its stories - or better yet, tie them all together.

Top Critic

A great improvement, with some of the warmth and cohesion that were missing.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Britton is not in every episode, but I wish she were; she brings tremendous depth to a character that could easily have been a one-dimensional joke.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It is an unusually inventive, challenging, empathetic and funny show about some of the more marginalised people in society just might be.

Feb 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It is raw, angry and disturbingly at peace with the perversity inside the main character's head.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

For all its faults, SMILF reminds you that sometimes you just have to laugh along with life's sick sense of humor.

Jan 22, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the best shows on television you're not watching and currently doing Atlanta's version of social surrealism for single struggling moms.

The sophomore season looks to be an upgrade from the first.

Audience Reviews for SMILF: Season 2

  • May 26, 2019
    I wasn;t sure how they'd improve on Season 1, but improve they did. Quirky, original, clever, with lots of nods and homages. It all built to a finale that felt, unlike so many others these days, just right.
  • Mar 25, 2019
    I can't grasp it. Nice idea, nice acting but it's boring :( Re-watch Weeds.
  • Mar 18, 2019
    I want to know how the critics gave this garbage a 100% rating. The show seems to want to be Shameless but fails horribly.
  • Mar 17, 2019
    Season 2 totally sucks
  • Mar 17, 2019
    I really enjoyed season 1. I thought that it had great progress with the story line. I watched 2 episodes of season 2 as soon as they released.. They have completely lost their direction with the story. I have lost complete interest.
  • Mar 17, 2019
    I really enjoyed season 1, I thought it had a good plot/story & it was moving a long well.. But when season 2 came out, I watched 2 episodes & I had decided then that.. I would be no longer watching as it's gone a total different/weird direction with it's story.
  • Mar 16, 2019
    Much weaker than first season. This is more a series of one-off episodes than a season. Weirdness factor has gone up which has positives and negatives but it take attention away from the realistic characters I liked in Season 1. I'd be fine with the cancelling this series after this season.
  • Mar 11, 2019
    Watched two episodes and i wanted to find something that would make me laugh. Instead I found a really bland show that lacked characters that i liked or plots that made any sense . Just a really trashy show without laughs, creativity or wit . Just found out it got cancelled as well so good riddance garbage ! Hopefully frankie shaw is done .....there's always porn ;-)
  • Mar 11, 2019
    Once you start to understand what's going on behind the scenes with the star/show runner - it makes it very hard to watch
  • Mar 10, 2019
    Bad in all ways. Not funny and scenarios are so idiotic.
