Critic Reviews for The Comeback Season 2

Good to see Valerie again -- although it's not exactly clear why we are seeing her again. Still amusing with some very funny lines, this is for Comeback lovers only.

In its previous incarnation, Valerie was marooned on a sitcom she hated, now she's the star of a sitcom about the sitcom she hated. It's a brilliant idea.

Valerie might be having a "comeback," but it feels like we are meeting her for the first time.

Some people find watching Valerie stumble and sabotage and stick up for herself too brutal to take. But for the rest of us, we do want to see that!

Make no mistake, The Comeback earned its second season and celebrates its triumph, foresight and timing with twice as much depth, humor and awareness.

This time The Comeback will grab viewers from episode 1. Many will find themselves not only eager for the next episode but also wishing they could check out a few episodes of Seeing Red.

I had little patience for the show back in '05, even as I admired the utter commitment of King and Kudrow. The new series is no more pleasant a viewing experience, but in some ways it's an even more impressive achievement from the duo.

The Comeback is a show that cuts through its many layers of meta awareness and finds the all-important pea of humanity at the bottom. And when it does the experience is nothing short of sublime. Welcome back, Red.

Shrewd reality spoof is smart; mature humor.

Nov 18, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I couldn't be more thrilled that the network has finally seen the light to give The Comeback another try. Its time has come.

    Very entertaining , had tons of fun watching it . 10/10 would recommend

    I binge-watched both seasons, and by the end was totally captivated by the series. I particularly appreciated how Valerie handled the darker moments. Full marks to Lisa and her ensemble.

    Incredible moment to moment madness -- picasso kind of TV. Intense and scary funny, but with an underbelly of Truth.

    I must say that as a fan of the first season I was worried the second season wouldn't be as good but it turned out to be even better. Despite her oddness you root for her.

    Better than the first season. How far will a celebrity go to get back into the limelight? How far will that same celebrity go deny the selfishness and humiliation that got her there? Watch the slow-moving train wreck in HD glory on this brilliantly written show. Lisa Kudrow stuns as the tragic Valerie Cherish.

    Love this show. I didn't even know about this show until this season. I watched the first season on demand and then went to this season. Give us more seasons please.

    Still Brilliant. It wraps itself back up into contemporary pop culture and the need for celebrity. This character is in her bones - Lisa Kudrow is so good it's often uncomfortable and hard to watch - but that's what true satire is....Genius genius genius.

    I love this character and the meta meta of being 10 years later adds another layer of smart, intelligent storytelling.

    Brilliant, amazing, funny, sad, pathetic, horrible, and nothing like it anywhere, THE COMEBACK is back and just as good as ever. An astounding achievement.
