At the end of the day, ‘Hollywood’ doesn’t care about telling a compelling story about interesting people, but is intent on demonstrating the importance of representation in media.
The fifth season finale of ‘Outlander’ just aired on Starz and wow, it was stunning. It was also the last new episode to air for at least a year.
‘Outer Banks’ seems to want to be taken seriously, to make a comment on society, life, wealth, and privilege, but its convoluted plot renders its efforts meaningless.
They don’t make television comedies like they used to, and few were ever made as brilliantly as “Reno 911.”
NBC aired a new episode of ‘Parks and Recreation’ on Thursday, so low budget it looked pretty much like any half-hour Zoom call. And why not?
It’s a great special; old-school vulgar, consistently funny, and flush with the pathos that elevates good stand-up to great. But I’m worried that, largely because of Burr, no one is going to talk about it.
If ‘Righteous Gemstones’ fails to offer a ‘searing commentary’ on the nitty-gritty of bad theology or evangelical politics, it’ll be just fine—so long as it actually brings the laughs.
In Hulu’s reboot, Veronica Mars is older, wiser, and as jaded as ever. The plot is just convoluted enough to keep viewers guessing too.
The themes about growing up are relatable, the nostalgia is real, and the monster-fighting remains legitimately scary. ‘Stranger Things 3’ is excellent.
In the third season of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things,’ the story is centered on eroticism instead of friendship.
It’s just too good to go on forever. Wallowing in ’80s nostalgia is healthy when done in moderation, but too much could make for disappointing outcomes.
Set 10 years after the events of the series finale, HBO and David Milch deliver an intense, moving portrait of life and death at the end of the Wild West.
Jordan Peele’s ‘Twilight Zone’ reboot trades the magic of the original for something more glitzy, but ultimately less satisfying.
Revisiting ‘All In The Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons’ provided a great opportunity for nostalgia—a sentiment that was perhaps ABC’s greatest success.
In an era when even comedians question the value of comedy, ‘Veep’ proved the enduring value of sharp edges.
‘Cobra Kai’s’ first season was such a perfect fusion of form and function, the show became an instant classic. Season two is up today.
Netflix’s ‘Traitors’ seems to have all the ingredients of a great television show, but built its entire story around an ill-researched political stance.
Syfy’s ‘The Magicians’ is an art project in the form of a television show, something we haven’t seen since ‘Twin Peaks.’
Netflix’s new show ‘Sex Education’ is a thinly veiled attempt to force a young audience into swallowing a dangerous liberal pill.
In season two, ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ improves markedly on its first ten-episode run. But the show’s future still looks bleak.
