Author:

There's no one way for documentary fare to acknowledge Earth Day, but the programs generally fall into one or more of four distinct buckets in regard to the health of the planet: Depressing, vaguely hopeful, star-studded, and celebrating the natural world to highlight what we might be losing.

'Cruel Summer' offers a time-twisting spin on a teen-soap mystery


Created: Mon, 19 Apr 2021 20:38:58 GMT

Author:

"Cruel Summer" is set in the 1990s and shares its name with a Bananarama song from the '80s, but its bingeable qualities make it nicely suited to the 2020s. How well that will translate to Freeform, the Disney-owned cable network, could be another matter, but this time-twisting soap opera certainly doesn't suffer from a lack of narrative ambition.

Kate Winslet classes up small-town secrets in 'Mare of Easttown'


Created: Thu, 15 Apr 2021 20:44:53 GMT

Author:

Small towns harbor big secrets in prestige TV, and so it is in "Mare of Easttown," a showcase for Kate Winslet that resembles "Broadchurch" in the broad strokes, before establishing its own distinct personality. Slow to start, the limited series gains momentum while mostly providing Winslet a fine star vehicle a decade after her Emmy-winning turn in HBO's "Mildred Pierce."
