As the program’s second season concludes November 17, Variety TV reviewer Daniel D’Addario has shared his thoughts on the season so far.

The piece, which was published on Monday, claimed that The Kardashians “has a plot-free, work obsessed season.”

In the review, he slammed the family for flaunting their wealth and the success of their businesses instead of showing their real-life dramas.

“Endless discussion of the decorating schemes of family private jets comes to seem both tasteless and like a way to pad out running time,” he wrote.

The review also criticized the family for tightly controlling the narrative of their new show, which Kim, her mom Kris Jenner and her sisters all executive produce along with Ben Winston.

“It feels like a document of tight control, with the manner in which the family sees itself, as fashion-industry standard-bearers, relentlessly pushed forward in both overly slick aesthetic and in story.”

“Nothing happens on The Kardashians anymore!” complained the critic.

The piece also pointed out that the season barely featured Kim’s boyfriend at the time of filming, Pete Davidson.


Similarly, her ex-husband Kanye West, who has since disgraced himself with antisemitic comments, did not feature at all.

JUST NOT WORKING

The Kardashians kicked off in April as a documentary-style replacement to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which ran on E! from 2007 to 2021.

Kim created controversy for herself from the start as she told fans, ‘Get up off your a** and work,’ during a promotional interview with Variety.

The KUWTK alum said: “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f**king a** up and work.”

She continued: “It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”

The billionaire’s comment was slammed as “privileged” and “toxic” by offended critics across the internet.

‘A CHORE TO WATCH’

Meanwhile, fans have complained that The Kardashians is too focussed on the sisters’ businesses.

Numerous episodes have revolved around promotional photoshoots for their brands including Kim’s Skims and Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Skin, as well as shoots for the Hulu series itself.

Disgruntled viewers have taken to social media to express their frustrations with the new episodes.

One shared: “Kardashians is just a chore to watch lately. It’s just constant ads and product placement.”
