It’s this wide-ranging spotlight, drifting from the highest levels of political office down to lowly bootleggers and prostitutes, that makes the show something special, offering up morality plays that hold the lives of millions at stake while putting an actual face on those being affected.
Following the exploits of the Avatar, the boy savior Aang who can control all four of the elements—fire, water, earth and wind—the series is filled with political intrigue, personal growth and unending challenges.
Show didn’t shy away from the real world, often tearing into the inequalities of society and the increasing domination of corporate America.
Not every bit landed, but the show still had a shockingly high batting average over its four seasons, and very little of it feels dated today. Boardwalk Empire Creator: Terence Winter Stars: Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon Easily dismissed as just a Sopranos clone set in the 1920s, Boardwalk Empire wisely took many of the best elements of its predecessor and expanded its scope.
Good Girls Revolt Creator: Dana Calvo Stars: Genevieve Angelson, Anna Camp, Erin Darke, Chris Diamantopoulos, Hunter Parrish, Jim Belushi, Joy Bryant, Grace Gummer Network: Amazon Though creator Dana Calvo’s airy, agreeable, short-lived series is, at first blush, a Mad Men-inspired portrait of working women in the era of the ERA, it’s amid the red pencil and hanging proofs of a fictional newsmagazine that Good Girls Revolt is at its sharpest.
As capable, tenacious researchers Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson), Jane Hollander (Anna Camp) and Cindy Reston (Erin Darke) fight discrimination at News of the Week, the series’ sense of the culture (and counterculture) remains as broad as a barn—Easy Rider, the Hell’s Angels, Buffalo Springfield—but it nonetheless illustrates, with humor and verve, the importance of reporting that pursues the unexpected angle, the hitherto unheard source. I Love Dick Creators: Jill Soloway and Sarah Gubbins Stars: Kathryn Hahn, Kevin Bacon, Griffin Dunne, Roberta Colindrez, India Salvor Menuez, Lily Mojekwu Network: Amazon “Desire isn’t lack,” writes Chris Krauss (Kathryn Hahn), the author and filmmaker whose 1997 novel is I Love Dick’s source material. A claustrophobia inside your skin.” In Jill Soloway and Sarah Gubbins’ new series, which grows richer and stranger as it progresses, this notion is reflected and refracted through Hahn’s perfect sensitivities: Her performance is so perceptively physical—contorting her face in orgasm, recoiling from touch, tapping and pacing and fretting and squatting—that the series often depicts her in triptychs of still images, as if desperate to slow her down.
