    The series is blessed with a firm grasp of who these characters are and what makes them tick.

    The halfhearted comedy of the first half (manifested mainly through Carson’s tendency to ramble incoherently when she’s nervous) gives way to richer, deeper emotions in the second as Carson, Max, Greta and others allow themselves to more fully explore who they really are and what they really want.

    It’s an enjoyable enough series, with picturesque CG settings (think Asgard meets Rivendell for Dream’s castle), a likable cast and an occasionally disarming sense of curiosity about the human condition. But it’s too trapped in glass to let itself run truly free into the dream world it wants to conjure.

    Shaggy-dog stories can have their appeal, but The Resort runs in circles in the jungle so long that it struggles to find its way back out. Luckily, while its ideas threaten to spiral out of this world, The Resort is not without more grounded pleasures. Milioti and Harper share the appealing lived-in chemistry of people who really did know and love each other once, even if neither performer is straying all that far outside their wheelhouse.

    The docuseries’ three hourlong episodes go by quickly, thanks to its streamlined storytelling and brisk pacing, and it delivers on both the white-hot outrage and the grim satisfaction promised by the downfall of a dude who really had it coming. But The Most Hated Man on the Internet falls short of the ambition needed to lend it real, lasting heft.

    Thankfully, and crucially, Uncoupled does offer enough genuine sweetness to keep its slight mustiness from curdling into bitterness. Its tone is mostly light, with most episodes sending Michael on breezy, low-stakes misadventures through self-help seminars or disappointing dates.

    It’s a chronicle of the brand’s ascent and descent, a look back at its place in our culture and an exposé of the rich, powerful men behind it, who inevitably connect — like so many of the U.S.’s richest, most powerful men seem to — to Jeffrey Epstein. But in trying to braid all these threads together at the same time, Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons ends up a hopeless tangle.

    Her [Phoebe Robinson's] saucy-sweet voice is the show’ greatest strength, lending it the sunny, easygoing vibe of a catch-up session with your funnest, funniest friend — although it’s not always clear, in the five half-hour episodes sent to critics, what exactly Robinson and her team (which includes executive producer Jonathan Groff of Black-ish) want to say with it.

    Condor’s delicious scenery-chewing ensures that the series is at its most entertaining when it’s pushing Erika to deeper and deeper lows, encouraging us to root for her spectacular comeuppance. ... There is, it turns out, something sincere and relatable buried in all of Boo, Bitch‘s flippant exaggerations. If only it didn’t take so much work to dig it up.

    Maggie‘s amiable tone lands closer to likable than irresistible. To put it in terms its looking-for-love heroine might understand: This series is a nice summer fling, not a once-in-a-lifetime love. ... Maggie proves most interesting when it’s not focused on love at all, or at least not the romantic kind. Its richest and most rewarding relationship is the one between Maggie and her childhood BFF, Lou.

    The series largely continues to do well what it always has, balancing levity and warmth with hints of sadness.

    The show still has a bit of work to do when it comes to carving out its own distinctive voice; despite Cucu’s talk of forging her own path, freed from the expectations of both American and Dominican culture, the series has yet to play any notes that sound truly new. But like its heroine, Gordita Chronicles shows the potential to grow into something special — and also like its heroine, it’s sweet enough to earn our patience while finding its way there.

    The finale braids together the series’ many narrative throughlines with enough tearjerking emotion to earn the already-greenlit second season — though it’s telling that even then, the most affecting moments emerge from the family units and friendships and not from the ostensible couplings.

    The new and improved Nathan makes for a far more likable character than the clueless, self-absorbed son of privilege we met last year. But having allowed the character to evolve, Rutherford Falls seems at a loss with what to do with him anymore. ... Rutherford Falls‘ humor runs more wry than gut-busting, this time with even less emotionally explosive drama to tip it off course. And the show hasn’t lost its knack for balancing big-hearted comedy with incisive cultural commentary.

    Becoming Elizabeth grants the future monarch some of the agency that she claims to have been denied — and that the inevitability of history too often robs of its most influential figures. In the process, it turns a centuries-old tale into something both timeless and fresh.

    The disappointment of First Kill is that the show itself feels like something that can only be loved moderately. It’s a pleasant distraction that goes down easy enough — but it comes nowhere near capturing the all-encompassing allure of a really irresistible binge, let alone of a forbidden first love.

    Despite the heavy premise, the series as a whole is surprisingly light on its feet. Sure, here and there are painful excavations of trauma or equally tear-jerking moments of defiant joy. But for the most part, the series allows its characters to be every bit as messy or silly or sexy or serious after the shooting as they were before.

    In letting Kamala’s story shine on its own terms, Ms. Marvel offers us the very thing she herself never found in all her fangirling: the uplifting vision of a brown girl from Jersey City who saves the world.

    The series hasn’t lost its bitterness or its bite, and the chilling final shots of the finale should wipe out any fears to that effect. But as season three reminds us, the punches hit harder when there’s something worth fighting for.

    A breezy watch. But Pistol is too busy admiring the youthful rebellion of the past to recognize that, in doing so, it’s become the very thing its subjects once sneered at: a safe, mainstream crowd-pleaser.

    Above all, Obi-Wan Kenobi works because its protagonist does. McGregor, a consistent highlight of the prequel trilogy, is as every bit as good if not better here.

    Over eight hourlong episodes, thinly drawn characters and sleepy pacing hold the series back from reaching its full potential — and unlike the awful night in question, Now & Then proves all too easy to forget.

    Theo James and Rose Leslie are] done no favors by a narrative that never seems to have wondered who Clare, especially, is beyond a time traveler’s wife — nor by their inability to generate any real sparks between them, much less any brilliant enough to serve as a beacon through space and time. ... The Time Traveler’s Wife fails so direly to mine any romance from its central premise that it starts to build a case for the opposite.
    • 69 Metascore

    It works beautifully as a drama about complicated characters tangled in relationships unable to be contained by the conventional boundaries of romance or friendship, and about the ways humans will try to impose order or sense where none can be found.

    If Conversations With Friends excels at capturing the finer details of their interactions, however, it’s somewhat less convincing at conveying the warmth or heat coursing underneath them. In part, it’s a problem of chemistry. ... Oliver and Alwyn generate only mild friction together. ... Better together are Oliver and Lane, especially when Conversations With Friends is able to dive into the longstanding well of love between their characters.

    Mostly, though, it feels like an attempt by the series to put a neat little bow on a narrative that, over five hourlong episodes, has become increasingly muddled and unwieldy. ... “That’s it?” Betty asks incredulously near the close of the series, frowning at the pointlessness of it all. She might as well have been speaking for me.

    Ater an enthusiastically received freshman season faces the tall order of somehow capturing that magic again. Girls5eva season two manages to hit all the same highs, while expanding its range ever so slightly to make room for earnest self-reflection among all those goofy jokes.

    I Love That For You makes for an incomplete and occasionally frustrating portrait of Joanna in the early episodes, but then so does Joanna’s own understanding of herself. With some patience and brutal self-honesty, it could yet evolve into something more.

    From the start, Under the Banner of Heaven demonstrates a quiet confidence. Brenda’s death supplies the narrative suspense, but it’s the show’s sense of empathy that proves truly difficult to shake.
    • 76 Metascore

    It’s still a delicious mix of pulse-pounding thrills, razor-sharp comedy and surprisingly meaty psychological drama.
