      Previous Judy Berman TIME Magazine Informed by Jen and Judy's superficial brand of feminism, the dialogue rings true. Even better is the chemistry between [Linda] Cardellini and [Christina] Applegate, ideal foils who balance keen comic instincts with raw emotion. Dec 5, 2019 Full Review Linda Holmes NPR Dead to Me is often very, very funny - but it's also rooted in profound emotion that makes everything matter. Dec 5, 2019 Full Review Brian Lowry While sustaining this sort of story is invariably a juggling act, this has the self-assured feel of a hit-and-run tale that's destined to keep running for at least a while. Dec 5, 2019 Full Review Elizabeth Garcia But Why Tho? A Geek Community Dead to Me is an extremely bingeable television that ends on a cliffhanger. It is a powerful show that takes viewers through a whirlwind of emotions. 9.5/10 Jan 22, 2023 Full Review Brian Lloyd Funny, bleak, wrapped up in slick visuals and smart performances, 'Dead To Me' is another worthy addition to Netflix's repertoire of female-led comedies. Dec 5, 2019 Full Review Tilly Pearce There are several beats to this show where you can see what's coming up, but then there are others that take a complete right angle and head off somewhere new, keeping us on our toes while making us comfortable at the same time. 4/5 Dec 5, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous vincent p Chemistry between Jen and Judy was perfect, very believable characters! They played off each other very well. I thought the script writing was excellent, the twists and turns were realistic. As with all series they do tend to get a bit repetitious in later seasons but "Dead to me" was repetitious in a good way. Enjoyable series! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Kelly Ann V personally i found this show very intriguing and funny Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/20/23 Full Review Jess C One of the best shows I've ever watched! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/18/23 Full Review Gareth v The chemistry between Applegate & Cardellini is what keeps this show bubbling along, even when the jokes don't always hit the mark. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/16/23 Full Review Toms c Funny and well made, the 2 leads in particular do so well. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/04/23 Full Review Andrei D Needs more actual comedy Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
