Shrinking: Season 1 | Ratings & Reviews

"Most of the best scenes contain Ford and Segel... but all too often they’re undercut by yet another sentimental set-piece..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"It achieves every goal that it sets out for itself, all while caring deeply about its own modest ambitions."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"As much as it loves a good zinger, the show's greatest weapon is its essential kindness."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"Nestled between the shenanigans... is a generous and thoughtful accounting of grief."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"Thorny but charming..."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"Harrison Ford's still got it, but (the) Ted Lasso duo can't recreate (its) magic."


"Jason Segel and Harrison Ford are brilliant in (this) earnest dramedy."


"A dramedy that confidently steps into Ted Lasso’s life-affirming shoes."


"It is Ford – in only his second ever small screen role, and the first to let him remind us all of his comic as well as dramatic chops – who holds it all together."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The sharp writing offers poignant feels, and the cast seems up for anything."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"(Shrinking) comes off as both highly earnest and kind of shapeless..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"For a story fuelled by grief, Shrinking expertly balances a hard-to-hit tone."

"The plainness of the Lawrence approach to dialogue hurts the show..."


"Soon watered down by platitudinous exchanges, unearned catharsis and insistent articulations of feelings."

Financial TimesFinancial Times

"Shrinking has a good grasp of its thoughtful quirkiness..."

"Shrinking gets great work from a great cast."


"Without Ford, Shrinking may have been unbearable, but with him, I ended up happily revisiting episodes just to enjoy the actor’s spark."
