Critic Reviews for Useful

"Useful" delivers two very compelling storylines thanks in large part to Moss, Whitford, and Strahovski.

We're in for another tension-filled ride, one that I hope will benefit from its early slow burn, transforming these inventive embers into an impactful season.

There's a whole lot of grieving for the missing baby Nichole, some smoking and a little listening to her mom tell her how terrible she is - mix in the waterfront location of Serena's folks' house, and it's essentially Club Dread.

As a collection of scenes featuring good actors saying interesting things, "Useful" works wonderfully well...The problem is when you attempt to stitch them together.

Womanhood, Handmaid's Tale seems to be saying, is a bond that runs a little deeper than politics or marriage or the law.
