Critic Reviews for The Duchess Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

If ever a show worked overtime to be edgy, raunchy, and transgressive, this is it. I love edgy, raunchy, and transgressive, but not when they're force-fed, and not when there is no real wit behind them.

If you are already familiar with Katherine Ryan's work you'll love this.

With defter hands at the reins The Duchess might have stabilized its balance between lowbrow and charming; no such luck.

Sep 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Bawdy adult-themed comedy has innuendo, drinking, cursing.

Oct 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The comedy is held up by [Katherine] Ryan's humorous and terrific writing. [Full review in Spanish]

Sep 29, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a savagely rude and whip-smart sitcom based on Ryan's experiences as a single mother, and I devoured it in one sitting.

Sep 24, 2020 | Full Review…

This lacks the sustained laughs, witty one-liners and sheer ingenuity of the similarly conceived, but superior Motherland.

Sep 22, 2020 | Full Review…

Come for the sarcastic one-liners; stay for the delightful relationship between Katherine and her daughter, Olive, which gives the comedy a big, beating heart beneath all that cynicism.

Sep 17, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a fierce and funny wine mom's manifesto with a refreshingly cynical take on parenthood.

Sep 17, 2020 | Full Review…

In The Duchess, there were moments that we weren't fully on board with, some jokes that maybe were too close to the tooth, and others that just zoomed past us, but once the heart of the show is established, that's where its strengths lie.

Sep 15, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's all very raunchy but also occasionally sweet - there's a certain Apatowian quality to it, as well as a sense of humor that reminds me of Melissa McCarthy at her filthiest best.

Sep 15, 2020 | Full Review…

When a show fails to create any redeemable characters -- although a few have interesting storylines on occasion -- it fails at its heart.
