When They See Us: Season 1 Reviews

Seeing the series in the cold shadow of Trump's Presidency, we find ourselves doubly fatigued, watching a nightmare still going on, at a larger scale, while the need for urgent action overwhelms the desire for subtlety.

The result, also borrowing the pseudo-journalistic style of TV's Law and Order procedural series, is a puny American epic geared to the divisiveness of this period.
