    Despite its flaws, Dear Edward is a welcome entry into the TV-plane-crash show pantheon as a thoughtful look at the different ways that grief manifests and how community can be healing. Even with some disjointed storytelling, the pieces that land feel like they’re worth the journey.

    Rap Sh!t is unapologetic in what it is and who it’s for, and TV is better for it.

    Despite its narrative foibles, the show’s supporting cast and their rapport is really strong, especially the banter between Phoebe’s work wife Malika (Toccarra Cash) and her college best friend Michael (Moses Storm).

    Shows like The Bear—with its fully formed tone, presentation, and performances—don’t come around often. Make sure you tune in: it’s a chef’s kiss.

    While the show brings a lot of pertinent issues into focus through its absurdist premise, it’s not always actually saying something at the conclusion.

    There’s a lot to like in All American: Homecoming for both fans of the original series and people entering this world for the first time. The tone is familiar and approachable, and the show is bolstered by solid performances. Most importantly, it’s a fun hang that fully buys into what college is all about.

    While the first two episodes that were available for critics feature some familiar and recycled story elements, the show is fun and enthralling enough to stand on its own.

    Kwok’s script does a good job of centering this narrative without hitting us over the head with claims of diversity and representation, the balance integral to its success. It’s a unique character inhabiting a unique world: the perfect ingredients for an exciting story.

    The result is rich, thought-provoking art that makes Susan and Christopher strangely sympathetic, as they blend the lines of fantasy in order to keep the truth—whatever it might be—deeply buried.

    The characters are fun to hang out with, and the show makes for a quick and enjoyable binge that doesn’t require too much thought. Harlem isn’t as groundbreaking, tight, or fresh as Insecure was, but perhaps the comparison is incorrect—Harlem isn’t trying to be anything other than another show about young, successful Black women thriving.

    The show isn’t exactly breaking new ground in terms of its romantic and identity-based storylines, but it approaches each girl’s predicaments with a tangible amount of love and understanding.

    A show whose second season found many of the weak spots of the first and course-corrected for a fuller, more interesting story. Ultimately, Marcus’s journey to happiness is much more compelling than Darby’s, and that is a welcome improvement.

    The great filmmaking is accompanied by fantastic performances from the entire cast. ... Despite my preamble about fears and insecurities, the fun parts of Insecure are still there. The parties, the one-line zingers, the hookups and relationship drama, the mirror raps, and the humanistic portrayals of complicated friendships still fill the screen with so much heart.

    Episodes are fast-paced and engaging (as of the first three provided for review), especially if you know what you’re getting yourself into.

    If Scenes from a Marriage has a saving grace, it’s the dynamic duo of Chastain and Isaac who are far and away the best part of this project. ... It’s a master class that deserves recognition, and both actors reach the depth required to sell the dialogue. I just wish the material was worthy of their talents.

    So while there are some weak episodes in Season 2, they are still enjoyable—and the best episodes this season are even shinier than those of the first. As far as heartwarming storytelling goes, Season 2 of Modern Love is worth a watch from start to finish.

    Mr. Corman is painfully relatable to anyone who has ever looked around at their life and wondered how they got there. It’s quite the opposite of its fellow AppleTV+ show Ted Lasso, but it’s still a character study that’s worth firing up.

    Never Have I Ever doesn’t skip a beat in its return, and remains entertaining, challenging, and a joy to spend time with.

    While she has been personable in her previous press engagements, in the docuseries that bears her name, she is raw. ... It’s an intimate and voluntary peek inside of her brain—one that puts her anxieties and fears on display instead of running from them.
