What I Watched This Week: 30 Oct 2016

NEW SHOWS The Mindy Project – “Leland Breakfast Is the Miracle Worker” (A-) The best episode of Season Five yet, even though it’s utterly ridiculous. Jack Davenport (the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) is stupendous as the egotistical British thespian who … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Atlanta “The Big Bang” (A-) / series premiere “Streets on Lock” (B+) An extremely confident pilot, followed by an extremely baffling follow-up (which I also loved). It’s early, but I doubt any new show this fall will live … Continue reading
