Critic Reviews for Tracey Ullman's Show Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

The sketch show returns with our Tracey as adept as ever at playing a range of characters... The best sketch by far makes grotesques of Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch (Ben Miller) at a painfully strained family dinner -- more risks like this, please.

While Ullman's portrayal of Judi Dench as a compulsive hellraiser insulated by her national treasure status is a solid, repeatable gag, it almost overshadows her impeccable impersonation of Maggie Smith

Although as mixed as you'd expect from a sketch show, Tracey Ullman's return to UK screens for her second series has been better than cynics might have expected. Her character acting makes up for some occasionally off-beam sketches.

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.

Mar 13, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Feels more celebrity-heavy second time round. The thinking is understandable. The famous folk also provided the best moments of the last series even if, once again, they tend to throw into sharp relief the slightly weaker social satire.
