Critic Reviews for The Bold Type Season 2

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11)

I love this show, and I hate Jane.

Top Critic

The show is bright, cheerful and often ludicrous, and bears little resemblance to the reality of working for a magazine... but every episode has surprised me, and (sometimes despite myself) I'm hooked.

The Bold Type dramatizes the lives of its three leads without turning any of the women into caricatures.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Viewers of The Bold Type get to see what an open relationship entails, sans the heavy-handed moralizing that normally accompanies the topic.

Aug 4, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The Bold Type veers into cheesy territory often and the characters are as impossibly glossy as the magazine itself, but it's fun. It's also sex positive and non-judgmental.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The show is still touching on a lot of on-point subjects such as diversity, inclusiveness, racial and cultural identity, fake news, responsible reporting, our obsession with all things tech-all relevant conversations in our current milieu.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm pretty disappointed with how The Bold Type ended an otherwise pretty awesome season.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a refreshing alternative to common depictions of millennials as lazy whiners and women's magazines as offices full of backstabbing harpies.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

More so than before, The Bold Type seeks to define itself as a modern day Mad Men if women were finally allowed to call the shots in the boardroom.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The show wears its bubbliness with pride, strutting the line between iconoclastic and feel-good without missing a step.

Oct 10, 2018 | Full Review…

I don't think I've seen a show that tackles an issue like fertility with characters who are young adults. It's a blessing that we have The Bold Type on a network that supports originality and pushing the envelope.

Aug 9, 2018 | Full Review…

This is the kind of encouragement any young writer would want. But if The Bold Type is ever going to feel real, it needs to depict the difficult, ugly side of this business, as well as the cocktail parties and the blow-outs.

Audience Reviews for The Bold Type: Season 2

  • Dec 22, 2018
    A dull uninteresting show that's only successful because in this day and age putting feminism in anything forces people to say its good or be labeled sexist.
  • Oct 14, 2018
    Shame, a good show that just went too far on the PC bandwagon, the actresses are talented and their friendship very believable, the sole responsibility of this heavily progressisste and entirely left wing new age millenial story line rests with the writers who have done the show a huge disservice
  • Sep 20, 2018
    Awesome.Finally a great show that empowers women
  • Sep 18, 2018
    The Bold Type's second season is a blessing! New topics and challenges makes this show a game-changer than most shows similar to it.
  • Aug 24, 2018
    At times this show seems to be striving to be too woke to the point that it can get annoying. Some of the characters seem like professionally offended SJWs but overall the show is pretty good
  • Aug 23, 2018
    Season 2 was definitely the better season. I didn't care for season one, but season 2 was good TV. I started liking the characters a lot more and the topics they covered (race identity, gun control..etc) were important!
  • Aug 21, 2018
    Love Love Love Love Love this show.
  • Aug 13, 2018
    Full of stereotypes, predictable, cliché, kind of boring, i put it on my computer to make white noise.
  • Aug 09, 2018
    It’s a fresh new show that people could find themselves enjoying. 10/10 B’s (watch it, it seems pretty good.)
  • Jul 24, 2018
    The bold type is the best young adult show on television right now. It is tackling real life problems young women face in the workplace while depicting them in a both serious yet light way. 100% recommend to any woman, young or old.
