What I Watched This Week: 3 Nov 2019

NEW SHOWS
Watchmen – “She Was Killed by Space Junk” (A)
Jean fucking Smart. That’s it. That’s the entire review.

Silicon Valley – “Blood Money” (A-)
Gilfoyle finally meets his match in the form of the HR rep who cracks open his entire worldview and defeats his procrastination by merely forcing him to manage people, the thing he hates the most. Meanwhile, Richard faces a true moral dilemma as he finally gets an investor, but one who’s truly evil. This should give some true stakes for its final episodes.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – “The Gang Solves Global Warming” (A-)
A brief but hilarious exploration of the climate crisis, with Paddy’s serving as a microcosm of the entire world, with greedy people taking more and more as resources dwindle and the population grows, relegating minorities to a trash heap as the waters rise. And then you’ve got Dee thinking she’s helping by taking Uber and wearing recycled shoes. It’s almost perfect.

The Good Place – “Help Is Other People” (A)
“Baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time.” Their test is over, but it remains to be seen if the humans (particularly the awful Brent) have learned anything. The show expertly ends on cliffhangers without feeling like they’re just stringing us along.
