What I Watched This Week: 26 Feb 2017

Crashing – “The Road” (A-)
An improvement on the premiere, even as it’s still finding its legs. But a cocaine gag (that didn’t steal from Annie Hall) and a very true-to-character love of Jars of Clay will always put a smile on my face.

The Mindy Project – “Take My Ex-Wife, Please” (B+)
A solid episode, with most of the laughs provided by a drunken Jody.

Legion – “Chapter 4” (A-)
Essentially a remake of The Simpsons‘ “El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Homer,” but with Jemaine Clement instead of Johnny Cash. The show continues to be the most brilliant, troubling thing on TV.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – “A Cricket’s Tale” (B+)
I knew the show had to end on a tragic note for the gang’s PCP-addicted assistant, but the Disney tributes were a nice touch for such a ridiculous episode.

The West Wing – Season 1 (A-)
Solid writing as expected from Sorkin, even if it is a little dated and seems surreal compared to the everyday WTF-ery we’re living through under the Trump administration. Great introduction to each of the characters that we love so much, which makes the impact of the season finale that much greater.
