For its 3rd and final season, Future Man does the time warp again

For its 3rd and final season, Future Man does the time warp again
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

It’s been an unusual run for Future Man, Hulu’s fitfully funny but endearingly oddball show about a nerdy janitor and two warriors from the future who team up to try and save the world from a coming apocalypse. The first two seasons saw the trio overcome their oft-combative personality clashes to prevent the near-extinction of the human...

The Sinner closes out its murderous season in potent but predictable fashion

The Sinner closes out its murderous season in potent but predictable fashion
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

There wasn’t much mystery to this season of The Sinner. True, the show was attempting something a little different than past installments—more of a character study than a “what happened?”—but it’s resulted in a muted and less exciting season, one that gained strength by turning inward on Bill Pullman’s beleaguered detective as opposed...

There’s a scene right around the halfway point of “Part VII” where Harry goes to visit Jamie in prison. Having secretly recorded the teacher confessing to letting Nick Haas die, detective Harry Ambrose turns over the recording, the police arrest Jamie, and the precinct takes Harry out to a bar to toast the most unconventional cop on the...

Death-defying acts from the past drive The Sinner toward an equally perilous future

Death-defying acts from the past drive The Sinner toward an equally perilous future
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

A leap of faith is usually symbolic, not literal. People choosing to trust in a higher power, themselves, or another hope that they’re making the right choice, armed with nothing more than the conviction it’s the right thing to do. Not so for college-aged Jamie Burns or Nick Haas, for whom the leap is an actual, physical one. Halfway...

The Sinner reveals its real story is about the cop, not the killer

The Sinner reveals its real story is about the cop, not the killer
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

It’s clear that The Sinner is doing something different this year. Unlike past seasons, which went down intriguing rabbit holes of conspiracy and mystery, there’s not much being withheld in the story of Jamie Burns’ steady unraveling. Even after the closing murder last week, this episode wastes no time in telling us exactly what...

Ozark's season 3 trailer reminds us not to mix marriage and business

Netflix’s resilient

Ozark , a crime drama about a Chicago family’s belabored attempts to launder drug money in the boonies, returns later this month for its third season. Today, the streamer dropped a tense trailer for this latest batch of episodes, which pick up six months after the events of season two.

Season two, we should note, was a breakout for the series, which was created by Bill...

“If feelings aren’t the truth, then what is?” That’s the question Jamie Burns poses to Harry Ambrose at the beginning of their night together, as the former stands on the precipice of a tall building, letting his handmade fortune teller decide whether he’ll step forward into the void, or remain alive to rue another day. It’s a more...

Philosophy and fantasy blur as The Sinner threatens adult and infant alike
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

College is a time for experimentation. Be it styles, habits, or even entire belief systems, when you’re young and questioning everything, it only makes sense to try on a variety of different ideas and actions to see what fits. Most of us grow out of it (and into a more routine lifestyle and thought process) as we get older, but some...

Westworld brings us into the city (and blows it up) in new season 3 trailer

Westworld brings us into the city (and blows it up) in new season 3 trailer

If the last two seasons of Westworld struggled to emphasize plot over cerebral fuckery, the third looks to course-correct—the first official trailer for the hit (?) HBO series upcoming episodes, which whisk us away from the show’s namesake park, makes it abundantly clear both the conflict and its players.

Yes, it’s another revolution. Against what? A man. Played by Vincent Cassel, who,...

TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

“Strange, isn’t it? That some letter should determine your fate?” Jamie Burns says this to his student, while she protests his undercutting of the college recommendation letter she wrote for herself, but it’s also a clear (and ominous) foreshadowing regarding the destruction Jamie wreaked in his own life by inviting Nick Haas back into...

The Sinner season-three premiere wrecks Matt Bomer and Chris Messina

The Sinner season-three premiere wrecks Matt Bomer and Chris Messina
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

One of the most compelling elements of The Sinner has always been how it kicked off each season’s murder-mystery-conspiracy plotline with an inciting incident that seems almost incomprehensible from a logical standpoint. Season one had Jessica Biel’s easygoing housewife suddenly snap and stab a stranger for no discernible reason; season...

The times, they are a-changin' in The Crown's third season trailer

“Watch out for your family.”

“They mean well.”

“No, they don’t.”

Netflix has shared a new trailer for the third season of The Crown, and if that terse exchange doesn’t have you amped for some stuffy royal intrigue, then you, dear reader, are banished from this kingdom. As a somber cover of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin’” unspools, Olivia Colman’s Queen Elizabeth is juxtaposed...

“A great many changes. Nothing one can do about it. One just has to get on with it.”

So says Olivia Colman’s Queen Elizabeth in this latest teaser for the third season of Netflix’s The Crown, which pivots from the early days of the monarch to a period encompassing 1964 through 1977. The new episodes of Peter Morgan’s addictive drama will find the royal family navigating a world rapidly...

HBO's investing in a third season of Succession

Just two episodes into its second season, HBO’s incredible, timely Succession has been renewed for a third season, Variety reports. The decision is a bit of a no-brainer, what with the ample buzz it built up in the wake of its first season gave way to its highest numbers yet. Jesse Armstrong’s hilarious, eviscerating series follows the Roy family, a Murdoch-like dynasty that represent how the...

If you’re not watching the Audience Network’s

Mr. Mercedes , it’s probably because you have no idea what the hell the Audience Network is. It’s worth sussing out, though, as David E. Kelley’s adaptation of Stephen King’s not-so-great Mr. Mercedes trilogy is worth a watch, if only for the ways it’s improved upon the source material.

Brendan Gleeson, who stars as retired detective Bill Hodges,...
