The limited comedy series stars Lisa Kudrow as the embattled Valerie Cherish, a fading TV "It Girl" who was once so desperate to stay in the spotlight that she allowed cameras to follow her every move as she appeared on a new sitcom - with disastrous results. Now, it's ten years later, and Valerie thinks she has it all figured out this time. She doesn't.

The Comeback - Critical reception - Netflix
Jordan: The Comeback received rave reviews that compared songwriter and lead singer Paddy McAloon to everyone from William Shakespeare to Marvin Gaye. Jason Ankeny of AllMusic gave the album 4.5 stars out of 5, calling it “Prefab Sprout's largely successful attempt to embrace the breadth of popular music”. He added: “Over the course of no less than 19 tracks, McAloon chases his twin preoccupations of religion and celebrity, creating a loose thematic canvas perfect for his expanding musical palette”. David Wild of Rolling Stone said, “If Brian Wilson at the height of his creative powers had spent a year in the studio working up a concept album about love, God and Elvis, the result might have sounded like Jordan: The Comeback.” Ira Robbins of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a grade of B+, saying: “Those accustomed to musical junk food may find Jordan: The Comeback too subtle and complex at first, but this airy delicacy is a taste worth acquiring.”
