    It’s really Luna and Peña’s show, and even though they very rarely share the screen together, the pairing makes for a dynamic one. ... The actors do what they can with the tropes they’re handed, but Narcos is not the show to watch if you’re looking for female characters with any real agency.

    Balfe and Heughan have been playing these characters for so long that their chemistry now feels as natural as breathing, and the show knows how to lay in just the right amount of tenderness without things getting overly sappy.

    Season 3 ends with plenty of reason to be intrigued by a potential Season 4, from the restoration of Matt, Foggy, and Karen’s partnership to the looming threat of Bullseye in full villain form. The show may never have the spark it did in its earliest days, but it did help elevate the way stories of superheroes can be told on television. There’s still progress to be made, but Daredevil”feels like it’s on the right track.

    In Season 3 there are moments of joy, moments of hope, but in the long run it’s a show about unchecked hatred that doesn’t offer much in the way of solutions, because maybe it knows there aren’t any. It doesn’t destroy the idea that action is ineffective. It even offers its characters some moments of triumph. But it also doesn’t pretend that the path to rebellion is easy, and that average people are able to find it.

    It’s all anchored by these well-defined characters played by true veterans of the genre, who bring an ease to their scenes while also maintaining the original show’s energy. ... Easily the best aspect of Murphy Brown is how it acknowledges the meta elements of its existence without sacrificing the quality of its comedy or breaking the fourth wall.

    There are a number of really interesting ideas to be uncovered in Manifest.

    The writing is elegant and spare, the direction (with episodes helmed by Yang, Janicza Bravo, and Miguel Arteta) deft and subtle. Whether you pace out the episodes or binge in one sitting, there’s much to appreciate.

    Invoking the best qualities of David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Mary Harron’s adaptation of “American Psycho.” ... While we’re thoroughly embedded in Joe’s point of view from the beginning, the writing and Badgley’s performance do just enough to ensure that it’s not a comfortable experience, even as we get to know him more and more.

    As extraordinary as the voice cast might be, it’s the quality of the storytelling which keeps our fascination. Even in the episodes which revel in delightful full-fledged farce, there is such depth of feeling to BoJack, such investment in its message. But the show’s beating heart also still somehow manages to stay engaged with its big ideas.

    Poehler and Offerman’s off-screen friendship translates to a wonderful on-screen dynamic that lends itself well to the sort of off-the-cuff riffing that speaks to both a deep bond and strong improvisational skills. As hosts, they bring an irreverence that keeps the tone light, positive, and natural.

    While Season 6 never attained the operatic heights of years past, it was a relatively solid advancement of this story.

    The final moments of UnREAL bring with them an over-the-top, operatic feel, one that pushes every strain of believability but, in the grand scheme of things, feels pretty fitting. It’s a farewell that brings with it the satisfaction of slapping your toxic ex in the face, a knowledge that sometimes it’s not just enough for things to end. Sometimes, you just gotta burn it all down.

    How have things changed in Season 4? The answer is simple: just more, but better, deeper, and more daring.

    There’s a light touch to the material, but a deceptive one, as the wit of the script and charm of the performances mask the real pain and trauma within lives ruined by deception and bigotry.

    The show is, to be clear, worth admiring for the way it deeply cares about its ensemble and their journeys--Misty (Simone Missick) in particular is well-served with plenty to do. But that’s where most of the bloat lies: long scenes, with pretty quick emotional conclusions.

    Like most other Marvel shows these connections are likely to be only surface-level for the foreseeable future, but it still speaks to the tricky balancing act all these shows have to achieve: exist in their own universe, yet walk their own path. Cloak and Dagger hasn’t escaped the problems that plague its brethren, but it has introduced some fresh components that make the latter feel like a real possibility.

    Kimmy Schmidt does take one of its boldest narrative swings yet with Season 4, a format-breaking homage to the insane popularity of true crime narratives that lacks the breadth and depth of other parody series like “American Vandal,” but still nails down its own spin, while also using the concept to add new insight into the characters.

    13 Reasons Why features no shortage of missteps. But it’s a show that so deeply feels for its characters, so deeply feels these scenarios, that it’s hard to be mad at it.

    The complexity is lacking. As a story of survival, though, Colony remains the sort of engrossing television that gets lost in the mix, due to all the other captivating television out there.

    There is no way to recommend jumping into Badlands with Season 3-the season premiere makes no effort whatsoever to re-establish the characters or scenario for new audiences. But fans who either kept up with the series during its run on AMC or discovered it on Netflix can rest assured that the narrative continues on in a relatively seamless manner.

    Showrunner Bruce Miller has established the stakes for this world, and while it’d be nice if there was more focus, the series remains as unforgiving and unforgettable as ever. June’s anger and rage are ours as well, screaming out for those kept silent.

    The Expanse isn’t perfect television, but entering Season 3 it is confident in the story it’s telling and, more importantly, the kind of stories it wants to tell.

    Krypton is a show split between two different concepts, and that lack of commitment shows in the first five episodes. But those unfamiliar with the comics will find plenty to enjoy, as the plot gets twistier and twistier.

    At first the show does feel exactly like what might happen if the creator of a MTV dark comedy and the writers of a Tupac biopic teamed up together to make a show. It’s a combination that at first doesn’t really seem to click, but by the end of the season, On My Block does feel like a world unto itself, a universe with its own rules and logic.

    Season 3 does manage to end on something of a transcendent moment while remaining as semi-sweet as what’s come before, and we’ll always remember the show with fondness.

    Rage and fear aside, in the first three episodes screened for critics The Good Fight still also manages to be fun. The show retains all of the qualities that made “The Good Wife” so delightfully bingeable during its original CBS run while lobbing oddball choices into the mix.

    It’s the introduction of Janet McTeer as a mysterious figure connected with Jessica’s past who is the most dynamic element of these early episodes. While she has potential as a foil, there’s not enough of her to keep us hooked, not to mention the lack of the emotional hook that we had with Kilgrave in Season 1.

    The ending’s always pretty predictable, in the best way. ... The group as a whole embody a natural chemistry, though Jonathan Van Ness becomes a clear standout.

    There are a couple of narrative turns that aren’t all that shocking, but what keeps them compelling is the depth of emotion associated with them. Executive producers Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce have ensured that the best aspects of the multi-cam format play these scenes as pure theater, bending the rules of reality at times for the greatest emotional catharsis.

    From the top down, this is a show that has such patience and empathy for its characters, even the most minute of roles, that it makes you want to get to know the people around you in real life better, open yourself up to their stories, discover their secrets within. Because while there might be unpleasant surprises, good things might also result.
