In Relatable, Ellen DeGeneres struggles to regain the edge that she has lost in that intervening time...In defending Hart without any sort of thoughtful inquiry, DeGeneres abdicated her responsibility to her audience.
Most of the time "Relatable" has the feeling of catching up with DeGeneres. She's been through some lows, and is now high on the perch of success, but we have a good time listening to her share all about it.
As refreshing as it is to hear DeGeneres open up in a more nakedly honest way than we are used to seeing, she's at her purest comedically in the special when she returns to the type of observational humor that made her famous in the first place.
Relatable is the work of an entertainer who has given herself permission: to admit just how awful it felt to be rejected by people she loves because of who she is; to complain about being asked to dance wherever she goes; to not be relatable.
