5/5 95% PEN15: Season 1 (TV, 2019) I think it will appeal to anyone willing to revisit the hellscape of their teen years. Its comedy is more naturalistic than broad; think Welcome to the Dollhouse without the nihilistic streak. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

4/5 100% Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 2 (TV, 2013) I'm curious if new viewers were a touch overwhelmed -- though there were certainly enough good punch lines to lure them in. Brooklyn Nine-Nine's world is unquestionably a fun one to hang out in. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

4/5 95% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3 (TV, 2015) It's a lot of conflicting plot for the show to balance, and it's clear that some of Rebecca's insecurity about what's next is shared by the show as well. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

3/5 100% Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Great to see Amy Sedaris returning as Jacqueline's fellow desperate divorcée Mimi Knassis, who's more than just a lyric in Unbelievable. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
