Review: Amazon goes retro with '80s-set country club comedy 'Red Oaks'

Steven Soderbergh and company produce a fun series, but would it have been better as a movie?

If any man alive has the right to argue for TV's recent ascension over movies, it would be David Chase. But "The Sopranos" creator has never seen it that way, telling me a few years ago that the only obvious advantage he thinks TV has is that "there’s more of it, and you can get into more detail. I guess maybe this is what it comes down to: in a television show, you can spend a lot of money on very little small things about people.”

Review: Michaela Watkins shines in Hulu's 'Casual'

An intimate dramedy about a very dysfunctional family

"It's hard for me to describe," a therapy patient tells Val of his latest problem. "It's something kind of f--ked up."

"Good," she replies. "That's my specialty."

Val, played wonderfully by Michaela Watkins, is the heroine of "Casual," a smart and often moving new dramedy debuting tomorrow on Hulu. She's 39, recently separated from her cheating husband, and she and teenage daughter Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) are living with her brother Alex (Tommy Dewey), cynical co-founder of an online dating service that's starting to blow up.

Let's talk about 'The Affair' premiere

What did people think of getting Helen's perspective at the start of season 2?

"The Affair" had lost its luster for me by the end of the first season, because as much as I admired the performances and many of the ancillary details (particularly the portrayals of the two leads' extended families), I just never felt particularly interested in the eponymous relationship between Noah and Alison.
