Critic Reviews for Work in Progress Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11)

"Work in Progress" isn't very funny, but it has plenty of heart thanks to co-creator Abby McEnany's performance.

Dec 17, 2019 | Full Review…

The series never loses sight of its premise, though it remains bleak without beating you over the head.

Dec 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The most radical queer show to ever make its way to television.

Top Critic

In many ways, Work in Progress is a familiar entry in an established genre: it's an indie comedy by and about a clever, dyspeptic misfit looking for love.

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

"Work in Progress," co-written by Lilly Wachowski, moves along at a rapid clip, with some snappy one-liners, most of them uttered by Abby and by Celeste Pechous, who plays her best friend, Campbell.

Dec 17, 2019 | Full Review…

I like the way [Abby] McEnany plays it short and sweet. The dialogue is crisp and some of her scenes are almost monologues, sardonic commentary on where she finds herself at that instant.

Dec 17, 2019 | Full Review…

At a time when every series is struggling to stand out and make a mark, Work In Progress does so quietly, beautifully, effortlessly.

Jan 13, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Work in Progress's debut is smart, full of heart, and very funny.

Dec 17, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the most honest and funny shows we've seen all year.

Dec 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Mature comedy is honest, irreverent, and heartfelt.

Jan 17, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With buttery, wry humor, the series digs at the loneliness and isolation one can feel as a queer person under capitalism.

Jan 18, 2020 | Full Review…

A lot of teachable moments come about so organically on Work in Progress, and I hope that becomes a mainstay.

    Amazing.Great cast and comedic timing.

    Dealt with mental health, queerness, fatness, and inter generational relationships like no other show has. Wonderful. Final episode was a bit of a turn/pivot. Looking forward to strong Season 2.

    Funny, touching, sad all at the same time. Brilliant

    Loved every minute. Watched it over again and new laughs (the lamp post is closed so where am I ?) The break up scene with snow and that last fucking almond! Oh, did I tell everyone , spoiler alert? I hope Abby returns to BS next season, it works if you work it!

    This show is amazing. Hilarious and sad, uncomfortable and hysterical. I've rarely seen a show that can actually make me laugh and cry at the same moment...this one did. The scene in the washroom at ravinia did. The whole wedding episode did. Fantastic performances throughout.

    There are good honest moments, it helps me have a little better perspective of my gender fluid friends and my friend struggling with mental illness. It's a comforting and engaging show!

    Complete boring garbage
  • Jan 22, 2020
    If there were 20 more episodes of this show I would binge watch them right now. I am totally in love with these characters.
