Philosophy and fantasy blur as The Sinner threatens adult and infant alike

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,...

“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...

Netflix's Ozark returns for more backwoods chicanery in March

Netflix's Ozark returns for more backwoods chicanery in March

Jason Bateman’s going to turn some heads this weekend when HBO debuts The Outsider , the Stephen King adaptation he directs, produces, and stars in. That won’t be his first outing as a multi-hypenate, however, as Bateman’s spent the last few years getting his hands dirty with Ozark , a Netflix thriller about a suburban family that moves to the mountains and upends its subterranean drug trade....

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

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...

Marvel's Runaways reveals a new threat—and its first crossover—with this season 3 trailer

Things aren’t going so well for the runaway children of the Pride. At the end of last season , Gert and her dinosaur Old Lace had been spirited away by Gert’s father, Dale, while the alien-possessed members of the Pride captured Karolina and Chase and are planning to sacrifice them to prolong their own lives. Oh, also, Nico’s dad took some glass shrapnel to the neck, and his...

We might be waiting 16 years for more Fleabag

Fleabag’s shaken up streaming TV since its blessed second season debuted this year, with creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge taking the stage multiple times at the Emmys this year. If you’re celebrating her wins with the hope that a third season is on the way, however, don’t throw a party just yet.

The actress appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about Fleabag and her upcoming...

Olivia Colman's Queen Elizabeth just wants to get on with it in The Crown's new teaser

“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

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...

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Amy Sherman-Palladino’s award-devouring Amazon comedy, returns for its third season this winter. Today, Amazon released its first look at the upcoming batch of episodes, which find Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) and Susie (Alex Borstein) hitting the road for “glamorous but humbling” comedy tour.

The criminally underseen Mr. Mercedes gets a suspenseful third season trailer

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,...

The teens would also like to know who killed Bryce Walker in new 13 Reasons Why trailer

We’re a little more than a week away from the third season of 13 Reasons Why , which, as we saw in the season’s teaser , will center around a murder mystery with as many suspects as the show has reasons. Today, we’ve got a new trailer for Netflix’s premiere teen soap.

It’s no spoiler to say that jock and rapist Bryce Walker (Justin Prentice) is dead—what with it being exclaimed...

Legion ends with a beautifully messy bow wrapped around its entire story

Legion ends with a beautifully messy bow wrapped around its entire story
TV ReviewsAll of our TV reviews in one convenient place.  

Legion’s closing credits resurrect the musical cue that began the montage depicting the life of David Haller way back in the very first episode : “Happy Jack” by The Who, a song almost fairy-tale-like in its simplicity, about a man who responds to the cruelty and alienation of the larger world with a smile, who refuses to let it get to...

Smut is big business in this teaser for The Deuce's '80s-set final season

Smut is big business in this teaser for The Deuce's '80s-set final season

David Simon’s The Deuce has always been about Times Square’s evolution from seedy hot spot to family-friendly tourist trap, and the new teaser for the HBO series juxtaposes the early stages of that transition with the commodification of smut. VHS players have changed the game as 1984 eases into 1985, turning porn into a big business with a life outside movie theaters. It appears Vincent...

“You should never have come.” This is the magic phrase, the utterance Farouk says held the power to his overthrow of the previous tyrant, the words that can transform the world. They’re a warning to Xavier as he travels to Morocco, uttered by the malevolent Yellow Man incarnation of Farouk as he sits in the mental theater alongside...

TV ReviewsAll of our TV reviews in one convenient place.  

The rap battle between Oliver and Jerome is maybe the single silliest thing Legion has ever done. Sillier than a lip-synching mouse, sillier than any droll witticism or stomping on a previously enormous delusion creature or any of it. On an episode already experimenting with a far lighter and more playful tone than just about every...

There’s no such thing as a good war. Benjamin Franklin’s dictum remains true even if you can go back in time and prevent a war from happening. Watching David unleash his powers on the forces of Division is nothing if not disturbing, a demonstration of just how far gone he is, how fully committed the psychic has become to the idea that...

Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy shared a whole host of details about the series’ upcoming third season in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, assuring viewers frustrated with its myriad of puzzle boxes that “this season is a little less of a guessing game.” Good, because it was starting to feel like the show existed only for people who liked to dissect it on Reddit...

So we’re delighted that the Netflix comedy about the realities of living as a Black person on a predominantly white Ivy League school is only a few weeks from returning. Today, a trailer for the third season was released, one that takes a decidedly meta approach...
