Critic Reviews for The Other Two Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (20)

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

Mar 14, 2019 | Full Review…
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.

Jan 24, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
Top Critic

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

Jan 24, 2019 | Full Review…
NPR
Top Critic

It's a witty and sufficiently demented comedy.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The writing and performances are scalpel-sharp, the American showbiz satire is spot-on and there's no predicting the surreal little turns that events take.

Jul 1, 2020 | Full Review…

It's the sharpest and funniest episodic comedy show since 30 Rock went off the air.

Jan 30, 2020 | 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…

Frank sex and language, genuine family love in sweet comedy.

Audience Reviews for The Other Two: Season 1

  • Jun 22, 2020
    Absolutely loved it. Very seldom do things make me laugh out loud - this did. Praying for season 2.
  • Apr 21, 2020
    A show that gets the human condition and the current state of pop culture a little too well- Astonishingly brilliant writing, a supremely talented cast, a message needed for the entire world in these tumultuous times: that we can dissect our innermost flaws while celebrating how they make us the wild, beautiful creatures that we are!
  • Sep 08, 2019
    Now that Broady city has ended, Comedy Central has picked up another odd couple in NYC to follow around with a camera and I am all here for it! Love that Chase is a sweet kid, which subverted my expectations, and made the show that much more enjoyable to watch. The actors are all the perfect amount of ridiculousness and charming. I shed tears laughing at some soft spoken easily over looked lines. Can't wait for more!

    Best new comedy show of the year.
  • Aug 19, 2019
    it's great, it is really funny and i loved the storyline.
  • Apr 03, 2019
    So boring.... I don't know any such 2 characters who are that infantile at that age.... seriously, I can't relate to noone on this show
  • Apr 01, 2019
    More of this please!
  • Mar 30, 2019
    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.
  • Mar 15, 2019
    So funny! Molly Shannon is amazing in it. My favorite running gag is when they put their drinks on Billy Eichnerâ??s tab
