What's an overrated/overdone discourse about a fictional work and what's an underrated/underexamined one?

The most popular TV show you've never heard of is called "The Chosen." It tells the story of Jesus and his disciples and there are seven seasons planned (the fourth season starts streaming June 2). Around 200 million people around the world have watched at least an episode, and the show also sold $63 million in theatrical ticket sales. The Hollywood Reporter talked to director Dallas Jenkins, who set out to make an elevated Christian TV series, and now has his sights on the Jesus Cinematic Universe.

"Reading Rainbow," which ran on PBS from 1983 until 2006, is remembered with love in a new documentary, "Butterfly in the Sky." Kevin Makin reviews it for @csmonitor. "Ultimately, the documentary is more of a triumph than a requiem. Aside from its praise of programming that advocates for literacy and of [LeVar] Burton himself, there’s a sense of humanity that perseveres and goes beyond the warmness of nostalgia. Maybe it’s watching the smiling kids who became loving adults. Or it could be watching the series’ founders speak about familial ties that went beyond educational rhetoric," he writes.

The Hollywood Reporter's Roundtable events bring together leading figures in entertainment for frank conversations. This time, it's the turn of comedy actresses and the lineup is stellar: Quinta Brunson, Kristen Wiig, Michelle Buteau, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Ego Nwodim and Maya Rudolph. They met at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica to talk about the strangest feedback they've received, the roles that transformed their careers, and what happens when someone — in this case, Netflix — finally believes in you. "Oh, I’ve been tap-dancing for the patriarchy for a good while," says Buteau. "My knees are tired, but fish oil helps."

I feel like in this day and age where it seems like everything I stand for and believe in irl is failing, being rolled back, and losing fight after fight, I am drawn to stories where the characters whose values align with mine actually win

"With the release of the new Shogun series, a lot of people want to know two things: (1) is it good television, and (2) is it good history? As an academic historian in Japan, I say you can enjoy both the story and the real history behind it. You just have to separate them."

Valls et Sarah Knafo invités sur RTL dans Le Grand Jury demain. La compagne de Zemmour et candidate aux Européennes puis l'ex-conseiller de Barcelone redevenu simple citoyen depuis son naufrage aux législatives (ne me demandez pas pourquoi il est invité, c'est un mystère pour moi, le bon réseau sûrement).

🇩🇪🇫🇷🇯🇵🇦🇪 This is quite an interesting assortment of four broadcasters from three different continents, that have decided to coproduce . In this sci-fi thriller set in a city where everyone is recorded, your private data is supposed to be safer than anywhere else in the world. Not so safe, however, when a murder takes place...

🇮🇳 Set during the first half of the 20th century in an opulent entertainment neighborhood of Lahore, Indian series is a sublime but tragic tale about the fate of courtesans in a troubled time. Freedom will not come to them, or to their country, easily.
