‘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.

Described as “America’s go-to mental health comedian” by John Moe on his The Hilarious World Of Depression podcast, Maria Bamford is known for incorporating her struggles with depression, anxiety, an eating disorder and bipolar II into her stand-up routines. In Lady Dynamite, she stars as a semi-fictional version of herself as the show chops and changes between three time periods in her life: her time in La before she had a mental breakdown, her time spent in her home town of Duluth getting help in a psychiatric ward, and the present day. It’s in the present day that we first meet Maria, who, having been recovering for six months,

Blu-ray Review – The House (2017)

The House, 2017.

Directed by Andrew Jay Cohen.

Starring Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Jason Mantzoukas, Nick Kroll, Ryan Simpkins, and Jeremy Renner

Synopsis:

Forty somethings Scott and Kate Johansen (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) are proud that their daughter Alex (Ryan Simpkins) is going to college. She’s done so well that she’s getting a scholarship from the council to cover her tuition fees – except that it’s pulled due to budget cuts. Neither of them can raise extra money from their employers, but friend Frank (Jason Mantzoukas) comes up with an idea that could be the answer to their financial problems, as well as his. Open up a casino in his basement.

Saturday Night Live veterans Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler re-team as a suburban married couple in the comedy The House, a funny, if flawed, comedy that showcases the chemistry between the two actors even if the jokes don’t always land.
