Dead to Me: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Dead to Me: Season 1 (2019)




Critic Consensus: Dead to Me doesn't always deliver on the gallows humor that it promises, but the sterling duo of Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini elevates the series above its pulpier aspects -- offering a deeply moving relationship shaped by mutual grief.

Tv Season Info

Jen (Christina Applegate) is a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband?s recent hit-and-run murder. Judy (Linda Cardellini) is an optimistic free spirit who's recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond over bottles of wine, Entenmann's cookies and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it. DEAD TO ME, created by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, One Big Happy), is an addictive dark comedy that dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly funny waters of grief, loss and forgiveness.

Dead to Me deals with some serious issues but its twisty plot, comedic elements and the great performances at its center gives the show an undeniable energy and spirit.

Top Critic

"Dead To Me" is a terrific character study of two women with an extremely complicated relationship, and also like that show, is one of the best and most unpredictable series on television this season.

Top Critic

Only the pacing and occasional glib comment give the sense that humor is present, for "Dead To Me" provides no indication it has a sense of humor at all.

Quirky dark comedy about death grabs hold and won't let go.

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.
