This is brave and inventive television. It's a bummer when reviewers bring down the overall rating for a show because it isn't their cup of tea or doesn't work for them stylistically. Comedic sensibility is very personal and certainly this show isn't for everybody but if you want a show which doesn't just follow the same old formula - you'll be glad you persisted in watching it. I found myself laughing out loud which is not easy to accomplish.
Hilarious, unique, and intelligent, Lady Dynamite is a refreshingly excellent comedy. If you enjoy the first two minutes (most of you will) you'll love the whole show. Another Netflix success.
