Critic Reviews for The Other Two Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (19)

The Other Two is extraordinarily smart in pretty much every way, but it's especially clever when sending up internet culture.

Top Critic

It's the rare show that can be edgily satirical without being cynical. It takes what could be an easy punch line -- kids these days! -- and inverts it.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's exactly the comedy that's needed now: funny, feel-good, and forgiving of humanity.

The Other Two is a comedy series so densely funny that even its throwaway jokes deserve to be kept.

Top Critic

It's a witty and sufficiently demented comedy.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The Other Two's melancholic moments wrestle with what achievement actually means, and they challenge the idea that success can somehow make sadness and loss disappear.

Apr 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The show walks a careful line between raunchy and realistic, satirical and sweet, which results in a family-photo caricature that is somehow as relatable as it is ridiculous.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Yet for as much satire of show business and the world as these elements suggest, The Other Two is surprisingly heartfelt when it comes to questions of family, of grief, and of struggle.

Feb 4, 2019 | Full Review…

SNL alums Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider take a hilarious look at internet fame from the point of view of jaded millennials who have evaded that success.

Jan 31, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It has heart, charm, steel, belly laughs and a gimlet eye. Get on it. I wanna marry it at recess.

    Very funny and contemporary, The Other Two is another fine series about Millennial listlessness, generational gaps, and celebrity BS. Focusing on two hapless siblings who are now in the shadow of their overnight-sensation teenage brother, the show uses this optical to look at the frustrations many young people have with trying to find success in the entertainment industry. The writing is consistently strong, but The Other Two's strongest card comes in its casting, enlisting the aid of the ever-great Ken Marino as a sleazy agent, and Drew Taylor (a gay man himself) gives a non-stereotypical portrayal of homosexuality, and the episodes revolving around gay culture tend to be as spot-on that you'll find on a non-queer TV series. Ending on a promising note for potential next season, The Other Two should easily fill the void of a Broad-City-less Comedy Central.

    Great play on internet media fame. Quick witted and not afraid to take chances.

    So funny! Molly Shannon is amazing in it. My favorite running gag is when they put their drinks on Billy Eichnerâ??s tab

    Okay so this is one of those shows I can honestly say is comedy how it used to be not about politics and bashing Congress but about funny fun and making people laugh which it has done several times so far with me I find this show outspoken hilarious and raw I recommend It to anyone looking for a good time

    The show's lead characters are unlikable, self-sabotaging, self-centered losers. While promoted as a show that pokes fun at pop culture, it instead embraced, just in the pilot episode, a fart joke, two toilet jokes, a scene referring to a child as "sexy," oral sex joke, etc. None were funny. They were just crude references parading as jokes. If the show truly celebrated and/or skewered pop culture in a funny way, it would have been a winner. Unfortunately, the execution of concept is so terrible and juvenile that it renders the show unwatchable.
