Critic Consensus: With extreme attention to detail, Documentary Now! furthers its hilarious tribute to vintage documentaries through showcasing creators Hader and Armisen's multi-talents, topped with brilliantly by earnestly dramatic introductions by Dame Helen Mirren.

News & Interviews for Documentary Now!: Season 2
The lack of point of view revealed by "The Bunker" speaks to why the show has never been able to find real depth within the surface beauty of its production. It's a show to admire. It's too bad it doesn't really have much to say.
The show's stars, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, elevate every episode with their performances, but it's a comedy that wrings laughs mostly with its rigorous attention to detail.
Bill Hader and Fred Armisen topped the last season of Documentary Now! in the only way they knew how: they found a documentary to parody that is even more salient than those before.
Season Two isn't purely a high concept exercise in direct imitation, there will also be plenty of LOLs.
Documentary Now! continues to surprise and entertain from week to week with such varied episodes, with some leaning toward slapstick and others more subdued.
