Tv Season Info

In the noirish comedy's second season, Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman) has finally finished his second novel, but that doesn't mean he can quit moonlighting as a private detective. In fact, Jonathan even has a third job teaching a night-school writing class. Meanwhile, Ray (Zach Galifianakis) is having relationship problems, and George (Ted Danson) gets a surprise at his urologist's office. Jonathan's cases this season include a police officer who hires him to scrub his name from the client list of an S&M dungeon that's about to be raided; and a professor in a financial bind who asks Jonathan to retrieve an item of great value. F. Murray Abraham and Kevin Bacon are among the guest stars.

Critic Reviews for Bored to Death: Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

For now, I am still happy to come along for the wild ride.

June 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's wholly enjoyable and still better than new "comedy" series on all the regular networks, but the hipster nature of Ames novelist roots can only be charming for so long.

June 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Ames achieves a consistent tone of nonchalance across a considerable array of competing dramatic and comic material - which is no mean feat.

June 22, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The second-season premiere injects even more ripped-from-today's-headlines truthiness into the proceedings without ever feeling like a procedural.

June 22, 2018 | Full Review…

At times, the action does loll along too gently while building to each episode's climactic scene. But robust performances make the show a winner.

June 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Bored to Death is a true delight. All of it. ALL THE TIME.
