"Ja'mie: Private School Girl" brings back all the things we love about Ja'mie King even though we know we probably shouldn't.

  • Hank Stuever

    I admit to being underwhelmed by some of Lilley’s previous efforts, but Ja’mie is an enjoyably sick wallow in the evil that lurks in adolescence, as well as a formidable exercise in extreme portraiture.

    Because this series doesn't tell us anything about the character we didn't know (a Mr. G spinoff might have been much better), it's often like spending time in purgatory. The laughs are there. Ja'mie's just not easy to take.

  • Mark Lukenbill

    It's slight, short, and ultimately forgettable, and if you happen to find its purposefully obnoxious catchphrases and satirically blithe racism funny, a pretty good gauge of whether or not you're a terrible person.

  • Phil Dyess-Nugent

    Ja’mie is so drawn-out and lifeless that the mind wanders, wondering if there might be something ugly about the popularity of this character.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It's basically a one-joke show--a guy in drag plays the leader of a clique of mean girls--that pales compared with the smart unpredictable chaos of comedy in "Getting On."

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Christopher Muther

    Lilley’s writing is sharp and funny. He has an uncanny insight into high school. But the story is slow to unfold, and after two or three episodes, the premise feels stretched as tightly as Lilley trying to squeeze into Ja’mie’s school uniform.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Centering one of Lilley's most annoying characters in a series to ramble on incessantly robs the character of its past effectiveness and makes her--and the series--almost unbearable to watch.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    It's a painfully obvious shtick, so camp and arch it's impossible to enjoy the joke.

  • Robert Bianco

    You can consider this too much of a not-good-enough thing.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Their all-that activities become redundant and tiresome at WARP speed, raising the overall question of whether watching Ja’mie: Private School Girl on a continuous loop would be worse than eternal burning in hell.
