“On Becoming a God” has a few standout episodes, including the pilot and a midseason trip to a FAM retreat. ... But down the home stretch, just when we should be most involved and invested, too many developments feel arbitrary and forced, and there’s far more weirdness and wackiness than well-earned, well-executed dramatic/comedic payoffs.
Krystal’s 10-episode odyssey, steered by showrunner Esta Spalding, is a viciously funny smashing of the sandcastle that is American capitalism, a rigged system illustrated by an Amway-style pyramid scheme. ... [Kirsten Dunst’s] performance is worth paying attention to from the start, but the show finds its muscle the moment Krystal realizes that the only way to crawl out of the beast’s belly is to dive into the heart of it, then gut it and strut around in its skin.
Dunst is the saving grace throughout a rollicking Season One that keeps delivering whenever she’s on screen. It may well turn out to be the TV performance of the year, with some very able assists from Pellerin, Rodriguez, Ditto and Levine.
