      James Jackson Times (UK) Being one of those inventive comedies confronting midlife predicaments (divorce, failure, all the fun stuff), it has to amp them up, which has the unfortunate side effect of making everyone seem downright awful. Rated: 3/5 Apr 1, 2020 Full Review Ben Travers indieWire What Holstein, Gondry, Carrey, and the "Kidding" gang have accomplished is bold without reaching, sweet without turning saccharine, and thoughtful without getting pushy. Season 2 is lighter, yes, but only enough to let it fly. Rated: A- Feb 10, 2020 Full Review Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald With an ensemble cast including Frank Langella and Catherine Keener, it's deeply surreal and poignant television. Feb 5, 2020 Full Review Akos Peterbencze Frame Rated (Medium) Kidding proves that moving on is possible if we face the bad decisions we've made and forgive those who did wrong by us when we were too young to oppose. It's about the parental sins we buried deep inside ourselves... Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Keith Watson Metro Newspaper (UK) Singing and dancing with puppets and I didn't run a mile? Yes, really, I'm not kidding. Rated: 4/5 Apr 6, 2020 Full Review Martin Carr Flickering Myth Combined with discussions around mortality, adolescent arrested development and the marketing of dubiously shaped bedtime buddies Kidding continues bumping up the bar.

      Monica M I miss the show so much. It was absolutely fantastic. What a shame it didn't continue. They were all great. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/17/23 Full Review StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest final 10 episodes of Jim Carrey comic relief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/29/23 Full Review Ser Duncan T Una bella obra, llena de situaciones curiosas e imaginativas. Jim está simplemente genial y es el epicentro de todo. Por más series así Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/22/22 Full Review Audience Member This is one of my favorite TV shows, and the second season is even better than the first. Can we take money out of the profit game and continue making good TV shows. Amazing acting! Amazing story! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This was such a fantastic series. It's a shame it was canceled. Beautifully written performed and so much more that should have been created. Wishful thinking maybe someday this would come back. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review yash b I have always considered Jim Carrey to one of the most versatile actors. In "Kidding" he showcases more of his dramatic side, with some moments of humor. This show is often devastating and Carrey is easy to root for as a Mr. Rogers type public figure. His character does make mistakes, but I could easily empathize with him at every hardship he faces. This show is ultimately about the hardships all of the family members face, and I found myself very invested pretty quickly. The whole thing is only two seasons but I think it manages to tell a complete story. There are a few episodes that are hilarious, and I wish the series took more opportunities to make me laugh, but nonetheless, the drama and the messages are very real and effective. As a Jim Carrey fan, I am very glad I decided to check out this quick series with my current access to Showtime. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
