Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV show — former or current — that handles mental illness well?

Joyce Eng (@joyceeng61), TVGuide.com

Bojack Horseman,” especially Season 4, is almost peerless when it comes to a raw, honest portrayal of mental health. His depression and anxiety aren’t deployed as plot devices like we’ve seen plenty of times elsewhere; they’re just part of him and none of it is rubbed in your face. He’s allowed to be, break down, self-destruct, and the show never offers quick fixes or easy answers. “Stupid Piece of Sh*t” is a brutal depiction, even if you don’t suffer from depression or anxiety,

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Review: Spike Lee Brings Nola Darling to 2017 with Style and Depth in New Netflix Adaptation

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Review: Spike Lee Brings Nola Darling to 2017 with Style and Depth in New Netflix Adaptation
In 2017, “She’s Gotta Have It” may have more to say about men than women. Though primarily focused on the same independent woman from Spike Lee’s 1986 feature film — the sexually liberated Nola Darling, played here by DeWanda Wise — the series, directed in its entirety by Lee, often feels more focused on correcting men’s behavior than celebrating the singular human being at its core.

That’s not a damning issue, only a nagging one. Many, if not all, of the messages within Lee’s 10 episodes are valuable, insightful, and rarely so thoroughly discussed via a serialized narrative — not to mention told from a proudly black perspective. While the overriding educational value can lead to an academic disconnection at times, Lee’s revisitation is as singular and powerful today as it was 30 years ago.

Stephen Colbert Tries Starbucks’ New Unicorn Frappuccino and Wants to Die — Watch

Stephen Colbert Tries Starbucks’ New Unicorn Frappuccino and Wants to Die — Watch
Starbucks flexed its creative muscles this week by announcing a new drink: The Unicorn Frappuccino, which they created to be “Instagrammable,” so we know they invent words as well as they do sugary death drinks. Or, as Stephen Colbert called the concoction on “The Late Show” last night: “A sugary affront to God.”

The creators of the Pumpkin Spice Latte released their new drink Wednesday to cries from baristas begging customers not to order it. Ever the contrarian, Colbert braved the sugar and spice and everything nice to take a sip on live television. As if his facial expression didn’t say it all, Colbert said: “Tastes like I french kissed Tinkerbell. That’s not weird — she’s an adult, she’s just really small.”

Does ‘This Is Us’ Prove That Broadcast TV Is Still Relevant? — IndieWire Critics Survey

Does ‘This Is Us’ Prove That Broadcast TV Is Still Relevant? — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Does the success of “This Is Us” prove that broadcast TV is still relevant in creating prestige dramas (loosely defined through awareness, ratings, awards, etc.)?

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

I’m not sure many critics consider “This is Us” a so-called “prestige” television drama, even now. The fact remains that many shows which are more often hailed as prestige dramas – FX’s “Atlanta,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” AMC’s “Better Call Saul” – are darker, more explicit and more challenging to viewers than most everything on network TV. “This Is Us” does signal to network TV types that more complex storytelling can still be embraced by

‘White Girl’ Review: Elizabeth Wood’s Ferocious Debut Is ‘Spring Breakers’ With A Summer Internship

Essentially “White Privilege: The Movie,” Elizabeth Wood’s fire-breathing debut is an adrenalized shot of ecstasy and entitlement, a fully committed cautionary tale that’s able to follow through on its premise because — like the remarkable young actress who plays its heroine — the film is unafraid of being utterly loathsome. And make no mistake, while the madness of her misadventures is captivating from start to finish, you will hate the titular “white girl.” But it’s what Wood and her star do with that hate that makes their collaboration special, these two rising super talents manipulating your vitriol with the grace of a contortionist and the recklessness of a tornado.

A cherub-faced college kid who sublets a Ridgewood apartment with her best friend (India Menuez) for the summer, Leah (21-year-old “Homeland” alum Morgan Saylor) slinks around a mangy fizz of yellow-white hair, floating through the heat with the breezy confidence

X-Files Recap: 'Back in the Day Is Now'
The X-Files‘ Dana Scully may not be immortal, but wouldn’t it have been nice if her mother were?

As many X-‘Philes guessed — and TVLine feared — Margaret Scully dies in the revival’s fourth hour, her death a painful tearing-away of Dana’s one constant: No matter what insanity Mulder was up to from week to week during the original run, Mama Scully always had a gripping hug and some nonsense-free advice for her only remaining daughter. She was the voice of reason when a delusional Dana pulled her gun in “Wetwired.” She was a bedside regular throughout her daughter’s cancer arc.

Top 5 TV: Addicts, Virgins and the Greatest Baseball Inning Ever
Tracy Morgan returned to Saturday Night Live this past weekend for the first time since his debilitating car accident, and it was a glorious thing to behold. Even beyond seeing the former SNL star do comedy again — surrounded at one point, poignantly, by his old 30 Rock castmates — the episode as a whole was a reminder that life is short, and maybe it's better to spend whatever TV time we have left watching people we already know we like. And that includes you, Larry David, who kicked off the show with

James Bond 007: revisiting Die Another Day

It's the invisible car one! We look back at Pierce Brosnan's final outing as James Bond - it's Die Another Day...

Practically a curse for some this one, and now a contender for Worst Bond Ever. This is a bit harsh: Die Another Day doesn’t deserve the opprobrium heaped upon it. Not to say it’s good; just not utterly irredeemable. Perhaps its greatest problem is tonal. For a while it seems we might get the hard-hitting Bond that Pierce Brosnan so deserved; then suddenly we’re in an ice palace and Bond’s borrowed a car from Harry Potter. The second half of the film is utterly ludicrous but fun if you go along for the (invisible) ride; alas, the first half promised something far more intriguing. It wouldn’t be completely accurate to say it begins as Licence To Kill and ends as Moonraker; but nor is it totally unfair.

18 Awesome 90s Things We All Sorely Miss

Gone are the days of Furbys, Tamagotchis and Snes consoles – in are iPhones, Snapchat and Facebook. Trying to explain the beauty of a VHS to a kid with a Netflix account at the age of 2 now is going to be a tricky task, but one we’re gonna have to attempt one day.

The year of Nirvana: music, of course, was better. For one, girls on the radio had more fire and brimstone about them. Not only did we have L7, Garbage, and Hole pumping out 90s riot grrl-grunge: the mainstream airwaves had double the soul and substance we have today.

The Top 40 around 1997 had Natalie Imbruglia singing about the sky being Torn, and the Fugees Killing It Softly. Let’s compare this week’s chart-toppers: Little Mix doing a painful cover of Word Up and a song by The Chainsmoker called #Selfie. Even The Spice Girls

Best of Bond...James Bond: 50 Years - 50 Tracks review

Ignoring the 1954 American television version of Casino Royale (and one really should), it’s been 50 years this month since James Bond first graced the silver screen and entered the world’s consciousness and collective hearts. Created by author and former secret service agent Ian Fleming, Bond was a Commander in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy who became a Double-o agent of MI6. He’s a spy who kills and loves without conscience, suave yet deadly. The classic cliché of a man who women want and men want to be. Six actors and twenty-two official movies later, and Bond is still just as popular. And now, Capitol Records and MGM Music have released a new album filled with all sorts of musical goodies from those films.

The two-disc set starts off with The John Barry Orchestra performing the now iconic “James Bond Theme”, which is just as exciting to listen to

Flickering Myth's Top Ten Bond theme songs

Flickering Myth's writing team vote for their favourite James Bond theme songs as Skyfall, the 23rd film in the franchise, hits cinemas...

The sky is finally falling. The 23rd official James Bond film, Judi Dench's 7th, Daniel Craig's 3rd and director Sam Mendes' 1st, Skyfall, swaggers into cinemas today. So far we've had to make do with teasers, trailers, video blogs, posters, stills and interviews. But one genuinely important, and indispensable, component of the actual film has already been released in its entirety.

Adele's theme song, innovatively titled Skyfall, has been worming its way into our eardrums for a while. Personally, I think it could have been better. Adele's powerful voice promised to deliver an unforgettable Bond ballad with punch and panache. For me, the power isn't quite there. It had the potential to be far more dramatic. Having said that, it's undeniably catchy and confidently understated.

Thn’s Bond Movie Titles Rundown Part 5

We’ve been on quite a journey, haven’t we? All 22 Bond film titles have been critiqued and now Skyfall is out for all to enjoy. But before we get there, we have four more movie names to investigate. There no rush, though. We have all the time in the world.

The World Is Not Enough

(1999) dir. Michael Apted

Bond fights Begbie whilst Denise Richards plays a scientist. Oh and Q bows out gracefully. Desmond Llewelyn, we salute you.

Does It Sound Like A Bond Film:

Absolutely, as it overtly conjures images of world domination, though not necessarily in the manner one might expect. If you are familiar with the 007 mythology, you’ll find unquestionably fits into the canon and it’s rather surprising that this title hasn’t been used until now.

Does It Get A Song:

Oh yes. On his second outing as composer, David Arnold get’s
