Shrill: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Shrill: Season 1 (2019)




Critic Consensus: Sharp social commentary and a star-making performance from Aidy Bryant help Shrill overcome its familiar comedic sensibilities to create a show that proves self-acceptance isn't one size fits all.

Even the weightiest scenes don't abandon Annie's wry, casual sense of humor. She's a fascinating character, played by a fascinating performer, and Bryant makes "Shrill" worth watching all by herself.

Shrill is a marvelous piece of writing and acting, a meeting of Bryant's vibe and West's.

Nothing's official yet, but at this point, Hulu must know it has something very worth holding onto.

Bryant, who even when she's playing self-obsessed-becoming a self-actualized human being may require a wee bit of egomania-is extremely appealing.

It's a humane slice of life...with plot strands that sit together effortlessly and side characters who are richly drawn...
