Broad City delivered a powerhouse episode where both Abbi and Ilana were forced to deal with disappointment and heartbreak in their relationships, but with the show’s signature weirdness and edge. I’m sorry for doubting this season. This episode turned me into a true fan again.
The Path, Hulu’s latest original drama, is the streaming service’s bid to win an Emmy, starring critical darlings Michelle Monaghan, Aaron Paul, and Hugh Dancy, and it seems like they might have a real shot at it.
This week’s Broad City had Abbi and Ilana decide to rent out their apartments on B&B NYC, an Air BnB stand-in, staying out all night as they have nowhere to crash. After last week’s trip to Pennsylvania, it’s great to see them back in their natural environment again.
In the opening of this week’s Black-ish, Dre and Bow are barely holding it together as parents. They sent Jack to school with medical waste instead of lunch, Junior’s shirt has a giant iron mark on the back, and they straight up forget about Diane.
The second half of this season of Bosch was action-packed, thrilling, and engrossing, up until episode eight. Unfortunately, the final two episodes of the show were slow and meandering. However, let’s start with the good: Harry Bosch finally shows some emotion.
This week’s episode was slow-moving, revealing little new information while focusing on the search for a different missing child. It was definitely the most boring epsiode yet, but next week’s should be intense, as the ending here promises major fallout.
The last episode of Black-ish was an instant classic, addressing police brutality in a poignant, touching way. This week’s episode would invariably be a step down, but “Any Given Saturday” was decently funny, once again keeping the focus tight on the Johnson family.
This week’s episode of The Family reveals more details about the pock-marked man who kept Adam (or should I say “Adam”, because I’m still not convinced he’s actually their child). Not everything completely works, but to the show’s credit, I’m still hooked on the mystery. I need answers!!
Episode two of The Family was considerably less exciting than the premiere. It felt as if the show was spinning its wheels, hammering home the same points again and again (mainly, Adam probably isn’t Adam and Hank isn’t completely innocent).
The cold open of last week’s Broad City featured a hulked out Abbi destroying a child’s basketball, setting up this week’s story: the recently promoted to trainer Abbi, known as “Tonya Harding” to her high school friends, goes all out and then some at Soulstice’s game day.
In this week’s hilarious episode of Broad City, Abbi and Ilana switch places! Watching Abbi wear Ilana’s ridiculous clothing and impersonate her crazy mannerisms was amazing, mainly because the show has worked so hard to create such a memorable, unique character.
What a way to end a season! Superstore expertly balanced absurdity with sincerity in a standout episode that takes on Cloud Nine’s corporate overlords, as the team stages a walkout protesting Glenn being fired over trying to find a backdoor way of giving Cheyenne paid maternity leave.
Four and three and two and one, one. Ilana and Abbi are back! Broad City season three opens with a split screen montage of the girls in their respective bathrooms, where we see the months pass by as they eat, smoke, dance, read Hillary Clinton’s autobiography, flush way too many dead goldfish (Abbi), and hook-up (Ilana).
