Season 1
The Return of Jezebel James

Critics Consensus

Despite Lauren Ambrose's honest performance, The Return of Jezebel James collapses under its cliché female characters and lack of humor.

Critic Reviews for The Return of Jezebel James Season 1

Sherman-Palladino might have had better luck with "The Return of Jezebel James" if she'd made it into an hourlong dramedy like "Gilmore Girls.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

"Jezebel James" is truly painful to watch - particularly if you're a devotee of "Gilmore Girls." This is a dish that simply came out all wrong.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Potential pours from the screen, but the premiere has plenty of problems. People seem to be uncomfortable and trying too hard... By the seventh episode, things are jelling, and the show seems on the way to beguiling.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a very special, frustrating kind of bad, one with the power to actually change history.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Not wholly original, but Posey and Ambrose could nail the material if it were right. But it's not, and "The Return of Jezebel James" (a reference to Coco's imaginary friend from childhood) never connects.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Sherman-Palladino forces the sisters on each other out of an almost crippling sense of joint self-interest that's as painful as it is illogical.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

This kind of mediocrity may have worked a decade ago or more - but now its simply too dated to be at all relevant. And the audience is right to expect more from this cast and this creator.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

A comedy that's not funny, full of characters that aren't believable, it's one of the most disappointing shows to come along this season.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Coco and Sarah are not strong female characters. They are cliches. The show misses the opportunity to explore the very real issue of women and fertility.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Most of the jokes in this one fizzle and evaporate, as much as the tired laugh track tries to convince us otherwise.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

I would be perfectly happy watching Posey and Ambrose deliver Sherman-Palladino's dialogue for many a week. Unfortunately..., "Jezebel James" doesn't appear to offer much more than that.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

It is a fun way to spend 30 minutes, with memorable supporting characters and a unique storyline that has real potential.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
