Tracey Ullman's Show: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
I got the impression that some sketches, especially the musical numbers, were more fun to film than they were to watch. Still, Ullman throws herself at it with gusto and it's iconoclastic enough to elicit gasps as well as giggles.
[Ullman's] performance is remarkable, not least of all for the way she vanishes into each character. She is the "Clone Club," and I can imagine her as the Three Faces of Eve, the 12 Angry Men, and the Dirty Dozen just as easily.
Tracey Ullman's Show is delightful, and the comedian, now 56, is in top form, cycling through a mesmerizing, rapid-fire array of characters; flexing her performance muscles; and undertaking at least one musical theater extravaganza per episode.
Skewering politicians, celebs, and bringing her unique outlook on the state of things, Ullman doesn't disappoint. She's wonderfully weird. And funny.
This isn't Tracy Ullman's most inspired or surprising work by any stretch, but the humor is as polished and smart as ever.
