If it's on while you're home alone and not sober, perhaps give it a try. For me, personally, I was bored...which is probably the biggest sin a comedy show can commit.
January 23, 2019
The series operates in the same world-weary register as its superior predecessors.

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.

The buddy comedy of my dreams and the rightful heir to the Broad City throne.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
January 22, 2019
Across the board the cast is phenomenal and, combined with the comedic legacy of the writers, the show does so much more than expected.

At its core, it's a warped family comedy with real emotional stakes. Also, did I mention it's insanely funny?
February 21, 2019
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.
January 25, 2019
With a lightly serialized focus and unique sweetened cynicism, The Other Two is poised to be the heir to Broad City as Comedy Central's flagship series.

Sometimes things get a bit too ridiculous... But there are also tender moments that make the siblings seem a little more sympathetic.
January 28, 2019
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.
January 24, 2019
As low-key as The Other Two feels... it is a series with heavyweight comedic forces in front of the camera, with writing that doesn't let down.
March 1, 2019
The Other Two is an extremely studied parody-the years at SNL have honed Kelly and Schneider's scalpels-and Cary's frenzied, flip-flopping reaction to his 15 minutes of Twitter fame is as accurate as it is outrageous.
January 25, 2019
The show has more in its bag of tricks than nominal sibling rivalry and its stink-eyed glare at the shallowness of celebrity.
January 24, 2019
It's as good as a freshman TV comedy gets.

January 24, 2019
A hilarious, heartfelt satire of fame that is smart, savvy, and most of all kind to its characters. The cast is excellent, and the rise of #ChaseDreams is too real.

February 4, 2019
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.
January 23, 2019
Tarver and Yorke and the creative team turn the sibs into appealingly three-dimensional and vulnerable characters for whom we want good things, even when they're giving into their worst impulses.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 18, 2019
Often satirizing pop culture obsession, the impacts of fame and the industrial entertainment complex, "The Other Two" offers consistent laughs.
January 16, 2019
Comedy Central's new show keeps itself timely by not relying on clichés to sell the absurdity of the situation. Instead, it relies on the wit of its writers to prove why this show, out of all shows, can handle it.

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