    At turns hilarious, scathing, and sweet, Gentefied follows in the tradition of shows like One Day at a Time, Jane the Virgin, and Vida as a series with undeniable heart.

    With Kravitz stepping into the role of Rob, now a queer black woman who owns a record store in Brooklyn, High Fidelity becomes a much more sincere project. By the very nature of the generational shift to millennials – and the change in leads – Hulu's adaptation has nary an ironic bone in sight.

    The character growth of Part 3 is simply put, delicious. The emotional payoffs of each journey keep the show from slipping into WTF!?! territory and firmly ground CAOS as a show with something to say outside of quippy one-liners.

    Perhaps most egregiously of all, Modern Love, the television show, sands down the sharp, cutting, and often brutally introspective edges of Modern Love, the column.

    While the cases themselves are strictly contained within each episode, over the course of the three in each volume, Kay and Smith give the audience tantalizing glimpses into what drives the detectives who are trying to enact justice.

    Karen and Grace's tentative partnership is in turns comedic, antagonistic, judgmental, and extremely supportive, and Wever and Collette's chemistry is pitch perfect. ... The obstacles to reporting rape and other crimes of sexual nature are still to this day, astronomical. But the women of Unbelievable make it feel like justice could be within our grasp.

    While each episode that contains one of the main five events serves us up something close to the emotional impact of the original, the episodes in between feel too watered down to say anything.

    Producers Seth Rogen and Eric Kripke take the edgelord premise and modernize it into something not just watchable, but worth bingeing.

    Don't let the vulgar comedic vibes of the series fool you. Yes, you will see more than one blurred out vagina, but the parts of the show that will really put a smile on your face involve a different kind of tenderness.

    Every moment of catharsis you might feel while watching The Loudest Voice comes with a massive caveat. If you consider the battle over and won, then the loudest voice in the room will keep echoing from well beyond the grave.

    There is a prestige drama version of the show in which Anne's long game is actually surprising, and there is a guilty-pleasure version of the show that burns through twice the plot in half the time.

    Abby's doesn't quite show us why it deserves the same kind of attention as ODAAT or any of Schur's other shows. It exists, it's pleasant, and it's good to throw on if you want to turn your brain off for a bit.

    The miniseries attempts to sew together true events with fictional characters and storylines to mixed success. ... Pine's dogged, self-destructive, and heart-breaking performance as Jay is what pulls the viewer from episode to episode.

    Across the board the cast is phenomenal and, combined with the comedic legacy of the writers, the show does so much more than expected.

    The docuseries hits all the right beats of a good true crime offering: sensational crime, unimaginable fallout, wild abuse of power, and of course, the heroic figures still fighting for the truth to come out. And like most true crime docs, there's no neat bowtie of a resolution; the patterns of real life will always complicate the narrative. But the ending of The Innocent Man feels hopeless in way that most entries of the genre don't.

    Unlike the previous two seasons, Season 3 minimizes Matt and his moral dilemmas to make more room for what is truly one of Marvel's best supporting casts.

    Matthew Weiner's grand return to television for the first time since his Emmy award-winning Mad Men went off the air in 2015 is unfortunately nowhere near the caliber of that period drama.

    Shot with the same care as the finest of fine dining restaurants, Chef's Table is most effective when it's elevating affordable, accessible food to culinary heights of other Michelin star-awarded chefs in its five volumes.

    Season 6 is a return to what works for the show, but it's an effort that falls flat as we watch our girls fall into the same self-destructive habits--but this time with an auxiliary cast that we're not emotionally invested in.
