    There’s a chance the folks who enjoy the adaptation of Daisy Jones & the Six the most will be the ones who are experiencing the story for the first time. While book-to-screen adaptations certainly don’t have to follow story beats to a tee in order to be successful, some of the more drastic changes here don’t feel in service of the central narrative.

    Shrinking embraces the messiness of interpersonal relationships in that aspect. While some problems can’t be wrapped up in 45 minutes, some really great stories can be told in 30.

    For those who enjoyed the stories told in the first season, this second outing is a welcome return; but for anyone who might not have tuned in to the show before, it’s absolutely possible to jump in with any of the episodes that might catch the eye and have a lovely time.

    Many of the things that were so lovable about Season 1 are intact, while individual character arcs ensure that nothing feels too formulaic. The second season might not be quite as tightly wound as the first, but the twisty mystery is by no means an easy solve.

    If you’re unfamiliar with Rooney’s work or hoping for a story with characters closer to those found in Normal People, things might not land as well. What can be expected from the show, though, is some lovely coloring and cinematography, stellar performances, well-placed music cues, and a story that lingers after the final credits have rolled.

    While not the most addictive true-crime drama in recent years, Under the Banner of Heaven is elevated by its heartfelt performances.

    Put fears to rest that this is an unnecessary extension of what could’ve been a wonderful mini-series, as networks are often known to create — this is some gripping television, expanding on a story while honoring its starting point.

    Overall, things this season seem more scattered than sophisticated, from the dialogue to the developing and continuing of certain plotlines and the indulgent set pieces.

    People watch Euphoria for an abundance of reasons, but the show really is so much more than absurd Y2K outfit inspo, an ad for sparkly eye makeup, or dreamy blue and red lighting. At its core, it’s a heartbreaking story of a girl trying to survive.
