‘Lady Dynamite’ Season 2 Review: The Perfect Antidote for This Woman-Hating Garbage World

‘Lady Dynamite’ Season 2 Review: The Perfect Antidote for This Woman-Hating Garbage World
Every day, it seems, we’re confronted by reminder after reminder that the world is a dumpster fire, so it’s a genuine relief to have a new season of “Lady Dynamite” premiere this weekend. Reality is dumb, but life inside Maria Bamford’s brain is a blessing.

The series, created by Mitch Hurwitz and Pam Brady, is based on Bamford’s life to a deeply felt degree, celebrating her quirks as it chronicles her misadventures as an actor and comedian with plenty of meta touches and occasional dashes of the profane. Inside Maria’s brain, the rules of time and space are constantly in flux, pugs can talk, and even the darkest truths feel bearable, especially when her issues with manic depression and bipolar disorder flare up. At times, “Lady Dynamite” goes down some dark paths. But because the show is so throughly grounded in Bamford’s innate goodness,

Why you should be watching Lady Dynamite

Catherine Pearson Nov 10, 2017

With season 2 coming to Netflix this week, there’s no better time to celebrate this inspired show from comedian Maria Bamford...

Contains the set up from Season 1, Episode 1 and minor narrative references – no major plot spoilers.
