My Weekly Shows:
Black-ish (Eps. 7.17) - ABC
Ruling: Good relaxing watch, but that can be enlightening, instructive, and thought-provoking.
This Is Us (Eps. 5.12-13) - NBC
Ruling: I rate the quality of episodes based on the amount of times I cry. I haven't cried a lot lately, and yet I'm still engaged as ever. I don't know what that mean, but I hope to find out.
Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Eps. 3-6) Disney+
Ruling: Good action sequences, but I agree with a lot of the reviews that say this is a 4.5-5 hour movie told across 6 episodes. Thus, the episode cuts seem herky-jerky, and I can't engage with the material as much as I would like. I understand that Disney is trying to create weekly buzz by releasing these one at a time, but I think it would be better for the viewer to dump them all at once.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver - HBO
Ruling: The 60 Minutes of my generation week after week, and still as good as ever.
