But if you’re in that (likely small) cross section of people who’ve seen both, you know that they are both about anger that can result from being unfulfilled and/or unseen.
We need to talk about ‘Kevin Can F**k Himself’
In more dark comedy commentary, CNN’s Brian Lowry has an endorsement that’s worth giving an F about.
The eight-episode show began with a fair amount of promise, starring Annie Murphy (‘Schitt’s Creek’) as Allison, a woman whose interactions with her annoying, boorish husband (Eric Petersen) are all played out like a sitcom, while the rest of her life is a bleak drama.
The main problem has been the slow build as she seeks to break free of those sitcom conventions, a commentary on the way women have been portrayed on TV as well as real life. “I am so done with trying to be more,” an exhausted Allison says during the finale (which is already available on AMC+). While it’s not clear how long the producers can maintain this juggling act, the first season is worth catching.”
Singing the same old toons
For those weaned on those cartoons, the stylized look takes a little getting used to. The real test, though, will be whether kids respond, and as Chip ‘N’ Dale can attest, their tastes can be a little nutty.”
Farewell to “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which had more lives than Catwoman.
Youths, you know this as the show you’ve never watched but have read all the best jokes GIF form. (Disrespectful.)
Not awkward at all
I’d love to show you the Slack conversation that was had when Lowry reminded the team that “The Pursuit of Love” was about to air.
Instead, I’ll let him take it away because this text won’t get anyone in trouble: “‘The Pursuit of Love’ is one of those classy British miniseries that wouldn’t look out of place on PBS’ “Masterpiece” but, in the streaming services’ hunger for content, winds up on Amazon.
One more thing
Thank you, Hulu, for being the streaming home of “Make It or Break It.”
