    The initial praise lavished on Aziz Ansari’s “Master of None” focused mainly on the show’s original takes on race and other states of outsiderness, seen not only from the perspective of its main character, Dev Shah (Ansari) and his Indian ethnicity, but also in the slights and microagressions experienced by those within Dev’s circle: immigrant parents; friends of other races and sexual orientations; a white girlfriend; and even the strangers he meets on the street.

    Billed as a story about the L.A. origins of crack cocaine, FX’s engaging yet depressing 10-episode drama “Snowfall” (premiering Wednesday) is really about the many ways in which the drug trade recalibrates and eventually rots the morals of the people who engage in it.

    One hundred days in, TV’s Trump humor has hit a wall. How could it not? The material is so bountiful, the comedic workload so relentless, and daily occurrences so absurd as to blur into a meaningless and easily lampooned travesty of leadership.

    "The Trump-Inspired Comedy Bubble Might Be About to Burst" is from the May 01, 2017 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Hank Stuever and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    The fun and forthright “GLOW” (premiering June 23 on Netflix) is a 10-episode dramedy about the nascent days of televised female professional wrestling, in which a disparate group of underemployed actresses, models, party girls and unwitting introverts are recruited by a greaseball B-movie director to try something that’s never been done before.

    People’s faces have a way of sweetly melting whenever I bring up Amazon’s romantic dramedy series “Catastrophe,” the third season of which was released Friday. It may not be the biggest hit in the ever-increasing list of shows you mean to check out, but “Catastrophe” has a loyal following and can still feel like a personal discovery — a private glimpse of two grown-ups doing the best they can to stay married and raise two kids.

    "Rooting for Rob and Sharon as 'Catastrophe's' Simmering Crisis Points Reach a Boil" is from the April 28, 2017 Entetainment section of The Washington Post. It was written by Hank Stuever and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    The Golden Globes — that marvelously meaningless mash-up of film and TV awards bestowed by a small club of foreign journalists working in Hollywood — got off to an energetic start Sunday night with a clever la-dee-da-dee song-and-dance ode to the film “La La Land,” which later took home just about all of the big movie awards, including best comedy film and actor (Ryan Gosling) and actress (Emma Stone) and prizes for best director, score, song and screenplay.

    Boring Oscar shows aren’t the worst thing in the world. They’re long and forgettable, but even the most exciting Oscar broadcasts are long and forgettable — except when envelopes get mixed up. Sadly, that kind of thing doesn’t happen two years in a row.

    "That Boring Oscars Show Might Have Helped Soothe Hollywood’s Year of Being Fed Up" is from the March 05, 2018 Entertainment section of The Washington Post. It was written by Hank Stuever and narrated by Sam Scholl.
