TV Show Review | 'Single Drunk Female' Grips You By The Throat


The new series, “Single Drunk Female,” is a must-watch, especially if you need some comedic relief from life.


Created by Simone Finch and produced alongside Leslye Headland, Jenni Konner and Phil Traill, “Single Drunk Female'' aired on Jan. 20 on ABC and the first episode is explosive and takes you by the throat.


The series follows 28-year-old Sam (played by Sofia Black-D’Elia) who is fired from her job following a series of off-screen events and a volatile, on-screen interaction with a coworker.


Sam struggles with alcohol abuse and ends up moving from NYC to her hometown which has its own set of issues: ex-boyfriends, ex-friends, troublesome friends and her mother.


With no job, no money and facing jail time, Sam struggles with finding her new “normal” — whatever that means. You root for her and her success because she’s a likeable character.


As of Jan. 29, “Single Drunk Female” has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with an average audience score of 85%.


Currently, only two episodes have been released which means you can’t binge the series in a weekend but… good things come to those who wait.


Rebecca Henderson, Sasha Compère, Lily Mae Harrington and Garrick Bernard, Jojo Brown, Charlie Hall, Madison Shepard, Ian Gomez, Madeline Wise and Jon Glaser also appear in the show with steady and recurring characters.


At the time of writing this, “Single Drunk Female” is available for viewing on ABC, Hulu, Sling TV, YouTube, fuboTV, Google Play, Apple TV, Vudu and Freeform.
