Screener Squad: PEN15 – Season 2 Part 1

PEN15 Season 2 Part 1 TV Series Review


Season two of PEN15 continues to follow the cringe odyssey of Maya and Anna through seventh grade. The two comedians Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle have the effective gimmick of playing the younger versions of themselves while surrounded by a choice cast of young actors, creating a visual anachronism that’s funny all by itself. PEN15 will make you squirm while also warming your heart. Or, so says our reviewers, Wright, Robert, Eliot, and Tessa. Tune in here to listen to them sing the praises.

There is a longer, uncut, video version of this review available for TIME LORD subscribers and above right here.


CREATED BY: Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle, and Sam Zvibleman

STARRING: Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle, Mutsuko Erskine, Richard Karn, Taylor Nichols, Melora Walters, Taj Cross, Dallas Liu
