What I Watched This Week: 29 Jan 2017

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – “Making Dennis Reynolds a Murderer” (B+)
Another deft media parody, this time chronicling the vague murder mysteries that captured the nation’s attention by revealing precisely nothing.

Angels in America (A-)
One of those ultra-ambitious projects that’s so daunting you can’t help but be in awe of the magnitude of the thing, while still having to acknowledge that not all of it works. The acting is tremendous, the writing is melodramatic, the special effects are questionable, but it’s brilliant.

The Man in the High Castle – Season 2 (B+)
More narratively messy but more thematically satisfying than Season 1, as it tackles fate, betrayal, accepting one terrible reality to avoid a more devastating one, and if you’re rooting for terrorists or not.
