On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, we checked out two new TV series and enjoyed them both--but will only continue watching one of them: As We See It, which resolves around three neurodivergent characters who live together as roommates. It can be painful to see the cruelty they experience, but it's also funny and warm and very well-acted. Mentioned: A sibling caregiver story on Once and Again, discussed on the Extra Hot Great podcast; actor Rick Glassman (who plays Jack on As We See It) on Undateable; discussion forum about the show on Wrong Planet; the Parks and Recollection podcast.
We also watched the new sitcom Abbott Elementary, which is cute and funny and sweet and not something Catherine can ever watch again, because the handheld camera work gave her a migraine. Instead, we'll check out The Gilded Age, Julian Fellowes' new show on HBO Max, in which people sit quietly in drawing rooms and would never dream of allowing a handheld camera in their midst. So next week: As We See It, episode 2, "I Apologize for My Words and Actions," and The Gilded Age, episode 1, "Never the New."
