    The surprise this season, however, isn’t Corrin’s at times heartbreaking performance, but that Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of another prominent figure of the era, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, somehow overcomes the supernova of Diana’s still-cherished moment in history. ... Yes, Morgan has peppered the sit-downs between Anderson’s Thatcher and Colman’s Queen with more condescension and sly digs than any of Elizabeth’s previous elected cohorts (and it’s absolutely glorious to watch), but its a creative liberty that works in the context of their unique places in history.

    The footage is such a window into history that it’s fairly easy to give the filmmakers a bit of a pass for what’s not on screen.

    Despite Paulson’s best efforts (and, boy, she gives it her all), Alice is the one character who feels the least authentic among the ensemble cast and that’s basically because she seems the most generic. ... “Mrs. America” is often entertaining and compelling, however, because of its exquisite cast and that begins with Blanchett who is also an executive producer.

    This is not a project that just uses old news footage and sit-down interviews to fashion a portrait of a notable figure. There is never-before-seen history here and it is as joyous as it is painful.

    At just 52 minutes, it’s hard to argue that the first episode, “The Cellar,” doesn’t move at a brisk pace. In fact, it may simply move too fast for any of its magical or Sci-Fi elements to feel cohesive.

    The parent’s problems feel minor to those of their offspring and their storylines can be a bit too drawn out. “Sex Education” easily overcomes that minor quibble because Nunn and her cast have created a universe of characters that you inherently want to root for. And it’s so entertaining that after eight almost-hour long episodes it somehow feels like a quickie. And, yes, that’s a compliment.
