Which TV Show Is the Most Challenging to Write About?
TV critics weigh in on the shows that can be difficult to cover for various reasons.
“The Leftovers”: I tell people to watch this show all the time because it’s so good and when they ask why it’s so good, I awkwardly stumble through an answer that doesn’t at all do justice to it. The struggle is also real whenever I write about it, because I know nothing I write will adequately capture the brilliant catharsis of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta’s bleak and hopeful mosaic of grief and the unknowable. So I usually resort to reminding everyone how sweaty Justin Theroux is.
