The Other Two, a show following the much older brother and sister of newly minted pop sensation and “next big white kid” Chase Dreams (real life Tik Tok celeb Case Walker), is the buddy comedy of my dreams and the rightful heir to the Broad City throne. The show comes from the minds of SNL alums Sarah Schneider and Chris Kelly, and boasts a Lorne Michaels executive-producer credit. With a jokes-per-minute rate so high it requires a rewatch just to make sure you’ve caught everything, and strong performances from relative television newcomers, the show charges out of the gate self-assured and with a surprising amount of heart.
Cary (Drew Tarver, Bajillion Dollar Properties) and Brooke (Heléne Yorke, Masters of Sex) are aimless millennials barely surviving in New York. Cary is an “actor” (read: waiter) who we meet in his audition for “man who smells fart at party.” He’s sarcastic and bitter and hopelessly in love with his roommate, who claims to be straight despite periodically making out with Cary while watching reruns of Survivor. Brooke is a realtor with no home, who’s sleeping on an air mattress in one of the apartments her agency is showing after leaving her boyfriend of five years.
The sudden success of Brooke and Cary’s 13-year-old brother Chase Dreams for his song “I Wanna Marry U at Recess” has left them confronting their own shortcomings as creatives and fully formed adults. Cary’s day jobs — as a server with an unintentionally homophobic manager and a member of a flash-mob dance crew that performs in the park for tourists on an NYC tour bus — underscore his humiliating audition. Meanwhile, Brooke is on a mission to see 50 dicks. The first of these belongs to a perfectly cast Beck Bennett (SNL), as a man she believes to be a pilot, but turns out to be a flight attendant. She takes a taxi all the way out to a JFK motel for a quickie and lingers long after he leaves, having nowhere to go.
When Brooke and Cary finally come together, they’re on their way to meet up with Chase and their mother (an earnestly clueless Molly Shannon) for dinner. Even though their mother wears studded pleather jackets from the Candy Barn, hired a hapless opportunistic manager for Chase, and invited Brooke’s aspiring shoe-designer ex-boyfriend Lance, she isn’t exploiting her youngest son. Despite the enormous success of her youngest son, she remains single-mindedly positive and supportive of Cary’s acting career and hopeful for Brooke.
Chase’s absence at the dinner heightens the reality of his sudden fame settling into something that has longevity. His manager, Streeter (an always-flawless Ken Marino), comes in his place, acting as the first proxy between Chase and his family. When he tells them that Chase is sick in the hotel room because he ate a dozen raw eggs for lunch on Streeter’s instruction, to help “buff up” to present at the Kid’s Choice Awards (alongside Meghan Trainor, no less), all Brooke and Cary hear is that he’s participating in an awards show.
After the dinner, Brooke and Cary retire to one of Chase’s hotel rooms, filled with gift baskets from industry vultures and also Debra Messing. Here we finally get a tender moment between all the siblings as Chase enters and crawls between them in the bed to watch TV. Lying together, the three of them ground each other: Chase is genuinely excited for Cary’s commercial audition and he comments about missing their dad. The tone is sad enough that it’s implied he died, but he could have just left the family. As Chase dozes off, the reality of his fame settles in for his siblings. They watch his music video — a pitch-perfect parody of any Matty B or Jacob Sartorius type YouTube video — and it’s revealed that the midtown hotel that the Today showput them up in has Chase’s grinning face plastered across the front of the entire building.
Tarver and Yorke’s effortless chemistry drives the show, which really picks up the pace once they come together. Their banter delivers punch lines so fast you’ll miss one if you look away — but more importantly, together their characters offer an honest reflection of each other as they cope with the feeling that the world is leaving them behind. But even though my favorite scenes are the ones they play off each other, the entire episode is littered with weird little comedic breadcrumbs that give the show its fun tone: Brooke’s loser ex-boyfriend Lance shows up to her family dinner in his Foot Locker uniform and dabs when she sees that he’ll be joining them; Brooke googling “interior design how become” in her quest to find a passion. Details like these give the show the opportunity to simultaneously establish its universe and pack in the jokes.
The show is off to a great start, and has a promising season ahead. As Broad City finishes up its run and we said good-bye to Detroiters in the fall, The Other Two is poised to fill the gaping buddy-comedy void on Comedy Central. This season trots out an impressive list of guest stars, including Wanda Sykes, Champions’ Josie Totah, and Kate Berlant. Next week, we’ll see them start to grapple with the reality of Chase’s new life as a child star — and what it can give them.
• I refuse to believe that Streeter could have been played by anyone other than Ken Marino. We stan a character-acting legend.
• “He still watches Survivor, which is like violently straight.”
• “I think maybe he’s bisexual. It’s not 2010, those people are real now! They exist!”
• “Why is your finger broken?” “Turns out I can’t do a backflip.”
• “He’s talented yet he’s humble. Also sexy, but he’s a businessman. He’s 13 but an icon. The girls are horny for him and yet they respect him. And he respects them.”
• Brooke wants to become a travel writer/travel photographer/travel agent/rapper/rap critic. Same.
• Lance’s shoe ideas: laces on the bottom, invisible shoes, edible shoes.
Keep up with all the drama of your favorite shows!

Season 1 (2019)
Season 2 (2021)
A few months prior to being named co-head writers for Saturday Night Live's 42nd season, Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider spent a week in early 2016 developing the premise of The Other Two. They wanted the show to express the introspection and self-doubt that can happen in your 20s while incorporating elements of pop culture. Kelly said they were intentional about including depictions of the characters' sex lives. Speaking to Vulture, Schneider said they intentionally wrote Chase as a kind person because it would subvert expectations of the story.
The pilot was sold to Comedy Central in late 2016. Schneider and Kelly hired Charlie Gruet, who was the director of photography of the television series High Maintenance. In October 2017, The Other Two received a full series order. The series was produced through executive producer Lorne Michaels' entertainment studio, Broadway Video. The first season began streaming on HBO Max in 2021, where the second season streams exclusively, making the series a "Max Original". The second season premiered on August 26, 2021 on HBO Max with a two-episode release. On September 24, 2021, HBO Max renewed the series for a third season.
In October 2017, it was announced that Drew Tarver, Heléne Yorke, Case Walker, Ken Marino, and Molly Shannon had joined the cast for the series. Kelly and Schneider discovered Walker through social media, where he was known as a top user on the platform Musical.ly and had over 400,000 followers on Instagram. Tarver was brought in based on his comedic work at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, while Yorke was cast after Kelly and Schneider became familiar with her work on High Maintenance. It was announced in February 2020 that Gideon Glick would recur during the second season as Cary's new love interest named Jess. Shannon was promoted to main cast for Season 2.
Filming for the second season initially began in early 2020, but was abruptly halted in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming for the second season restarted on February 22, 2021, in New York and Los Angeles, and concluded on May 9.
The first season of the series holds an approval rating of 94% based on 36 reviews, with an average rating of 8.52 out of 10, on the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. The website's critical consensus reads: "With game leads and a wickedly witty sense of humor, The Other Two skewers and celebrates pop culture with equal aplomb."Metacritic assigned the series a weighted average score of 79 out of 100 based on 16 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".

After two and a half years, The Other Two is back for its second season. The show, which focuses on a family suddenly embroiled in show business, has a new home on HBO Max. On Aug. 26, 2021, it dropped the first two episodes of season 2. The show picks right back up with the Dubek siblings in their unending quest for peripheral fame.
[Spoiler warning: This article contains spoilers for The Other Two Season 2 Episode 1.]
ChaseDreams goes to college in ‘The Other Two’ Season 2
Like the first episode of season 1, The Other Two Season 2 opens on an interview with Chase (Case Walker). This time, instead of Good Morning America, it’s Pat’s (Molly Shannon) own, catchphrase-heavy daytime talk show. According to her, this is Chase’s final interview. He’s abandoning his music career to enroll in New York University. He’s still 14, but with fame, anything’s possible.
Chase’s retirement has capsized both Brooke’s (Heléne Yorke) and Cary’s (Drew Tarver) careers. Instead of managing Chase’s music, Brooke is scouring TikTok and commenting, “move to New York, I’ll represent you” on every singing video. Cary, who nearly starred in a Netflix series alongside his younger brother, is now an online host for everything from Age, Net Worth, Feet to The Daily Bite, sponsored by Bagel Bites.
Pat’s pride in her children never wavers. On her hugely successful talk show, she has a daily segment where she Facetimes her adult children live on air to “see what they’re up to.”
Brooke attempts to break out on her own
Though Brooke could work as Pat’s manager, she wants to avoid daytime talk shows and work in the more glamorous world of music management. The problem, of course, is that she has no one to manage.
In the first episode, she listens to individual renditions of “Happy Birthday” from every guest at an old friend’s child’s party. When that, inevitably, doesn’t find her the next big teen star, she drives to Queens to find a preteen TikToker. Her reaction when his family doesn’t know about the videos — throwing up into their bushes — hints that she’s not quite ready to make it out on her own.
Cary has a new relationship in ‘The Other Two’ Season 2
Cary, meanwhile, grows increasingly frustrated that his hosting jobs aren’t real acting. After each gig, he runs back to the store to return one dress shirt and replace it with another.
He does have a new romance in his life, though. While they’ve only been together for two weeks, Pat has already told her audience all about Jess (Gideon Glick), who is potentially Cary’s boyfriend.
The new relationship appears to have given Cary increased comfort in his sexuality. While he initially tells a delivery driver that Jess is a girl, Cary runs outside in his underwear to correct himself.
“As soon as I opened the door, I knew you were gay,” the driver says. “Cause I watch your mom’s show.”
The Dubek family meets at Blake Lively’s new restaurant
With Pat’s new job comes new connections, so Brooke, Cary, and Jess go to meet her at the opening of Blake Lively’s new Thai-infusion restaurant. Inside, the waiters hold plates of spaghetti and assure the family that the restaurant concept “isn’t racist.”
Pat, drinking from two separate cups of coffee, goes over her lengthy daily routine. She wakes up at 11 p.m. and heads to work, where she sits for five and a half hours of makeup. “For women over 50, it’s technically applied by a carpenter,” she tells Cary.
When Brooke arrives, she tells Pat that she wants to work as her co-manager since Chase is busy at school. But, as it turns out, he isn’t. According to Chase, he’s dropped out of NYU to continue his music career. Through social media, though, Cary and Brooke learn that his decision had more to do with the fact that other students were ridiculing him.
Now, instead of having no clients, Brooke is co-managing both Pat and Chase. She hates daytime shows and doesn’t think that Chase can sing, but it’s still a step up.
Per TVLine, HBO Max will drop new episodes of The Other Two every Thursday.

In the following days, he had the opportunity to observe Vika only when she left the bedroom in the morning, which she had shut with a latch before going to bed.
But, apparently, she began to get used to him and have more confidence. In the morning and afternoon, he more and more often noticed that she was leaving the bedroom, hastily pulling on her.
