Now, in the most objective opinion of this reviewer (for whom, in the spirit of full transparency, this will be the third “Frozen 2”-related piece he’s written for The Crimson), this is misguided. Animation is serious business.
“Mrs. America” is impressively acted and designed. Its competence, however, can’t save it from the filmmakers’ alienating eagerness to find the likable qualities in Schlafly, ignoring the real damage she did.
“Tonight is not a fundraiser, so put your wallets away,” Lady Gaga said to her viewers prior to the start of the World Health Organization and Global Citizen’s “One World: Together at Home” event.
Mindy Kaling has already given us so much. But her new show, “Never Have I Ever,” co-created with Lang Fisher, might be her most meaningful contribution to television yet.

With much of the country stuck inside, Exotic, his larger-than-life crew of misfit employees, and his charismatic rivals offer exactly what viewers are looking for: an immersive world that, despite being nonfiction, is even more unbelievable than the one we live in.
Is it inevitable that a TV adaptation will be less nuanced, less well-executed than its literary counterpart? “Little Fires Everywhere” seems to confirm this theory.
“I Am Not Okay with This” avoids becoming a stale imitation thanks to its stylized worldbuilding and vibrant performances, which combine to addicting effect.
Even after almost a decade of waiting, the show maintains its style, delivers on its story, and gives fans what they want: in-depth chronicles of the struggles during the Clone Wars Era.
While honoring the uniquely original premise of its source material, “High Fidelity” is a candid and modern rendition fit for 2020.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" delivers a classic combination of tense police business, fast-paced comedy, and touching moments in a premiere that bodes well for the rest of the season.
The gameplay this season promises to be cutthroat. The $2 million cash prize — now the largest grand prize in reality show history — seems to be a major factor.
