Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV show — former or current — that handles mental illness well?

Bojack Horseman,” especially Season 4, is almost peerless when it comes to a raw, honest portrayal of mental health. His depression and anxiety aren’t deployed as plot devices like we’ve seen plenty of times elsewhere; they’re just part of him and none of it is rubbed in your face. He’s allowed to be, break down, self-destruct, and the show never offers quick fixes or easy answers. “Stupid Piece of Sh*t” is a brutal depiction, even if you don’t suffer from depression or anxiety,

The Jim Jefferies Show Review

Jim Jefferies isn’t actually the kind of comedian that you’d expect to get a weekly “news” show, even on Comedy Central. Now, before you start arguing, there are a few reasons for that.

One, he’s not the sort of comedian who is going to parlay his stand-up into a wholesome sitcom that takes over the cultural awareness and is loved by everyone, like Seinfeld or Roseanne. For one thing, “Jefferies” is a goofy title, and “Jim” can’t stand alone, but more importantly, he’s the sort of comedian who makes a show like Legit, which was hilarious, and naturally didn’t last that long.

Two, –

Not to put too fine a point on it, but we’re not exactly mainstreaming some shit here. Jim Jefferies is a lot of things, but “for everyone” ain’t one of them.

The show is presented in the semi-unique format

The Best Sitcoms That Need a Revival Now — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Sitcoms That Need a Revival Now — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In light of the recent “Roseanne” revival news, which sitcom would you like to see a revival of? (Let’s assume this is feasible from a network, talent, production, etc. standpoint.)

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

So many great sitcoms are personality driven, which makes it hard to remember great premises worth reviving. (And also, when I think about some of my ‘90s favorites, like “Step by Step” or “Friends,” it’s like… Oh, maybe there’s nothing new under the sun.)

But, beyond my eternal wish that someone would remake “Almost Human” as an adorable rom-com about Karl Urban and Robot Michael Ealy falling in
