Just binged it and was blown away. Incredible stuff. Great storytelling, great performances, and a bold style that is completely absorbing. It's also very funny at times. Shea Wigham has a moment getting out of a cushy chair that made me laugh out loud. Roberts's performance is stunning. Basically a perfect season. I'm afraid of a season two (especially after Mr. Robot).
This is filled with cliché stacked on cliché, but it's so expertly executed that it makes for easy viewing. Seriously though, using former soldiers with PTSD and Muslim extremist suicide bombers should be put on hold for the foreseeable future.
A truly lovely and magical animated series. Wonderfully brought to mind (and heart) Calvin & Hobbes, my all-time favorite piece of storytelling. It doesn't have C&H's sardonic wit and skepticism, but makes up for it with wide-eyed wonder and open-heartedness. Love it.
The Final Table
A standard, but well-executed cooking competition show featuring a strong cast of competitors and especially judges. The future of Netflix synergy is here. This features stars from Netflix series and many of the judges were featured on Chef's Table and now they're brought together in an arena that will grow new Netflix stars and round round we go.
