Let’s talk about Sunday night’s TV!

THE LAST DANCE: It was messy and I loved every moment of it. It’s fascinating how much I learned about the team—I had no idea Steve Kerr lost his father so tragically—and the realization that something like this probably can’t be done as effectively again. With modern teams, so much is put out there on social media, it just wouldn’t feel the same.

BATWOMAN: Holy Batman twist. Now that they’ve given Bruce a face (hi, Warren Christie), it’ll be interesting to see how he possibly plays into future crossovers—even if this Bruce isn’t the real Bruce.

I remain very curious what the heck the show will do with Alice in season 2. She’s been the show’s Big Bad in 1, and traditionally they don’t carry over, at least for long, in subsequent seasons. But she’s also the best part of the show, so…

AMERICAN IDOL: Just Sam was good, but I don’t really know if her performance in the finale itself was worthy of winning. But her grandmother’s reaction was worth everything.

It’s honestly weird, because IDOL finales are so traditionally padded, both in good and bad ways, but this felt so understandably lackluster. And I did feel bad for Just Sam that she was all alone in Los Angeles when she was crowned the next Idol.

THE SIMPSONS: Uh, this was a weird episode. A Christmas episode in May? It may have felt fine in December, but it just felt so out of place—in a time when everything already feels so odd—that I kept getting out of it.

SNOWPIERCER: The show was delayed forever, was at one point supposed to air on TBS, and now it’s back on TNT. It felt…entirely too close to home. I didn’t see the original film, but I kept thinking this felt like the absolute wrong time to try and watch this show. Global suffering, while the privileged live in (a new version of) luxury, while the rest are scrambling to try and survive? A little too on the nose.

BOB’S BURGERS: It’s kind of a little surreal now to see kids working to get the right to home school. It’s weird to be reminded how far in advance these episodes were actually crafted.

SUPERGIRL: The episode felt quasi-finale-y, though with the show’s return date even more up in the air (it’s a “midseason” show for The CW next year, but with their season launching in January, that could be at any point), who knows when we’ll find out if Brainy can be saved.

FAMILY GUY: The episode felt weirdly dated?? The Robin Williams joke in particular felt really, really gross and also wildly late.

TAYLOR SWIFT CITY OF LOVER: Given Taylor Swift just participated in an excellent documentary, I’m really glad the ABC concert special just focused on the music. I don’t know how long the concert really was, but I found myself wishing there was more to watch. (The acoustic versions of the songs were incredible.)
