    Instead of laying Maria’s (and Bamford’s) heart bare every half hour, Lady Dynamite is now building a protective layer around it. For all the cathartic comfort we’ve found in her struggles, Bamford is transcending the need to suffer for--and in--her art. And the show is all the better for it.

    Bamford may go through some dark times, as Lady Dynamite does go to some dark places, but its emotions are so genuine that the end result is both cathartic and addictive.

    It all remains hilarious and mad. One of TV’s funniest shows, and gifted stars, returns.

    I remain interested in Season 2's idiosyncratic storylines, but I found my attention drifting whenever the series time-traveled to Maria's mildly traumatizing teenage years. There's only so much of someone else's psychoanalytical sessions that I'm able to find interesting.

    It’s not clear from these early episodes that Ms. Bamford has a whole lot more to say about the compounding difficulties of mental illness and the vicissitudes of life as a woman trying to succeed in the entertainment business and navigate romance in Los Angeles. Lady Dynamite is still a well-made and distinctive comedy, but there are a lot of those these days.

    Really wish I liked this show more. Just too annoying. I tried but it is just too trying. Don't know how else to put it.
