Atypical Review: This Autism Comedy Warms the Heart, Minus the Schmaltz

27 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Heartwarming” is a tricky word to use in a TV review: It brings to mind those insufferably corny, 7th Heaven-type shows where the family has a big group hug at the end of each episode. (Yuck.) But Netflix’s whimsical new family comedy Atypical — debuting Friday, Aug. 11 — manages to sidestep those landmines and deliver something that truly warms the heart, with a cast full of sweet-natured characters, a bracing dose of melancholy and a terrific lead performance from Keir Gilchrist.

Gilchrist’s character Sam is an autistic teen on the high-functioning end of the spectrum, and we learn about his »

Netflix orders new adult animated comedy series Disenchantment from Matt Groening

26 July 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has announced that it has placed a twenty-episode order for Disenchantment, a new adult animated comedy fantasy series from The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening.

In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.

“Ultimately, Disenchantment will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you,” states Groening.

Matt Groening’s brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn’t be happier to work with him on Disenchantment,” adds Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. »

There aren’t any vampires in Alias Grace, one of Anna Paquin’s first TV gigs since True Blood, but that doesn’t mean that the world of this Netflix miniseries isn’t a dangerous place to inhabit. Because, as the first teaser trailer for the Margaret Atwood novel’s adaptation shows us, corpses pop up at a rather alarming rate when Grace Marks (11.22.63‘s Sarah Gadon) is in the picture.

‘Friends From College’ Review: Do Not Be Distracted by the Beautiful Celebrities, This Netflix Dud is a Zoo

14 July 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Friends From College” is a mess. It’s a messy story with messy structuring and messy characters, and while the last point may sound like an attribute for a mature adult comedy about aging, relationships, and responsibilities, be warned: These characters won’t stimulate fresh thought or delight you with their quirks. They’re scattered, illogical, and subservient to a plot that’s promising a trainwreck at every turn. And who wants to watch pointless, easily avoidable failure?

It’s shocking how dumb a group of Harvard alumni can be.

Whether that’s the ironic twist or the careless oversight is unclear. The titular group of friends occasionally throw around fat Sat words (often clumped together in overindulgent sentences that scream, “Look how smart I sound!”), but their juvenile behavior is beyond amateur diagnoses. As much as these Ivy Leaguers want to offer advice to one another, none of them »
