BROAD CITY Review: “Burning Bridges”

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.

BROAD CITY Review: “B&B-NYC”

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.

BOSCH Review: Season Two Part Two
0

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.

THE FAMILY Review: “Feathers or Steel”

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.

BLACK-ISH Review: “Any Given Saturday”
0

blackish
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.

BOSCH Review: Season Two Part One

Bosch is back, and improved in all the right ways. The minor characters are further fleshed out and this season has even more of a noir feel to it, with gorgeous shots of Los Angeles and a classic femme fatale played by Jeri Ryan.

FLAKED Review: Season One

flaked excerpt
Let’s get this out of the way: Flaked is not a comedy in the traditional sense. Fans of Arrested Development, drawn to the show by the allure of seeing Mitch Hurwitz and Arnett together again, be warned.

THE FAMILY Review: “Of Puppies And Monsters”

The_Family_poster
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!!

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).
