What I Watched This Week: 21 Jun 2020

NEW SHOWS
Perry Mason – “Chapter One” (B) / limited series premiere
I’m intrigued but not quite hooked. It’s got great atmosphere and a great cast, but it’s not quite there yet.

CURRENT SHOWS
Barkskins
“Bees in a Bottle” (B-)
“The Black Sun” (B+) / season finale
Felt like it was just getting started, but many of its storylines came to a tragic end. Will be interested to see if a possible second season continues with the settlers or if it jumps ahead in time as its source material does.

BINGEING
The Great (A-)
A few of its characters were left twisting in the wind in the jam-packed finale, but this was a magnificently vulgar and clever limited series. The ensemble cast was uniformly excellent, but Phoebe Fox (as former lady of the court turned servant Marial) was the MVP.
