Jan 27, 2023Did the writers of Velma write this?
"You forced a young black man to fight a bunch of people in this cultural atmosphere." LMAO!
"I'm a white guy in Pasadena. The cops will probably just take it back to my house for me."
Awards & Rankings
You may love “Ted Lasso” or you may hate it, but you can’t argue that it isn’t sure of itself. Less so with “Shrinking,” though it has a kind of comfortable, lived-in pace and execution that makes it easy to watch.
With no sense of exaggeration intended, this show consistently hits it out of park, offering up characters who admit their flaws, embrace their foibles, and ultimately improve as a result. This might all sound a little bit safe for some, but have faith, because very soon Shrinking will be picking up Emmy awards – remember where you heard it first.
When you put Harrison Ford in full curmudgeon mode next to Jason Segel and Jessica Williams, there’s just not denying that you’ve got a competently funny show on your hands. But what is it saying? I mean, other than the platitudes it seems to spout: that all of us (even therapists!) are struggling? That we’re all doing our best?
