Mrs. Fletcher: Limited Series Reviews

November 6, 2019
Another adaptation with literary leanings that falls short.
October 24, 2019
Mrs. Fletcher is: another cheapening in a string of cheapenings in [Kathryn] Hahn's career as she rejoins Judy Greer and their posse of undervalued actresses to once again wander the TV wasteland looking for material worthy of their charms.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.3/10

But for all of [Kathryn] Hahn's tremendous skill, her presence isn't enough to paper over the cracks in the series itself, which struggles to find anything bold or new to say about women's sexuality or coming of age later in life.
October 28, 2019
The series benefits from two remarkably deft performers, who paint outside the lines of their characters. But in the end, I wanted more -- more insight, more illumination, more interrogation of the differences between sexual freedom and freedom itself.
October 25, 2019
Unfortunately, we spend almost as much time at college with Brendan, and that's when Mrs. Fletcher shifts tonal gears and becomes a downbeat melodrama about this irredeemable, snide and smug lout.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 24, 2019
For a story that's supposed to be so intimate and personal, it's also amorphous and unspecific.
October 25, 2019
"Mrs. Fletcher" deserved better.

Mrs. Fletcher feels both unfinished and rushed - the seven half-hour episodes failing to cement a story rather than just the feeling of a story, while too much short-hand and thus obviousness is used to bring other characters' stories to an end.
December 26, 2019
Mrs. Fletcher manages to break into new ground by also digging deep into desire, sexuality, and toxic masculinity. The result is a thoughtful and charming character study with plenty of reflective moments.
October 23, 2019
At the center we have Hahn's glorious performance. She embraces Eve's insecurities and messiness without vanity and enhances Perrotta's original creation.
December 3, 2019
Mrs. Fletcher starts as a slow burn, but in the end becomes a richly rewarding experience.
October 25, 2019
The aftermath is messy and unresolved, making it the most accurate portrayal of consent I've seen on TV.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 28, 2019
The narrative mixes ageing in America, and the influence of pornography, to present characters both complex and insightful, even when the neighborhood feels all too familiar.
December 3, 2019
This is a unique story that, while imperfect, deserves to be told. Mrs. Fletcher seems to be frustrating because being Mrs. Fletcher is frustrating -- and while that truth might not make for great TV, it's important to recognize all the same.
October 28, 2019
Plot is Perrotta's strong suit, and the series moves at quite a clip. The network's striptease set-up will, I suspect, hook most viewers.
October 22, 2019
All together, Mrs. Fletcher is a good story that could have been so much better had they added a few more episodes to properly wrap up the story. As it is, this works mainly as a showcase for Kathryn Hahn to get a lot more leading roles.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
November 25, 2019
Coming-of-age tales often follow kids on the precipice of adulthood, but Mrs. Fletcher shows how two people with very different trajectories can experience their own identity crises, sexual awakenings and the need to be loved at any point in life.
October 29, 2019
Kathryn Hahn is the perfect actress to reveal in between looks and small gestures a woman with a lot more than its image of abnegated mother reveals at the beginning. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 25, 2019
It's content to let Hahn fill each beat, no matter how empty, knowing that if all else fails, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had in watching someone who likes to watch.
October 25, 2019
It's already a remarkable gift to be the actor who nails supporting roles so spectacularly that you wish you could spend more time with those characters, while appreciating that they haven't overstayed their welcome.
