 Desiree Akhavan in 'The Bisexual'

Had Desiree Akhavan not explicitly said that she dislikes being called the bisexual Lena Dunham, I might have compared her excellent new show on Hulu, “The Bisexual,” to HBO’s “Girls.” It’s a difficult comparison to resist — there’s something awfully familiar about the pithy, neurotic dialogue, fumbly sex scenes and skittish, scruffy characters who straddle the line between being in on the joke and being the punchline.

'Narcos: Mexico'

Yet another installation in the world’s continuing fascination with the drug trade in the Americas. Call me jaded, but having seen at least 10 of these come out every month, I may have unfairly written off “Narcos: Mexico” before it even began. I quickly realized, however, that the “Narcos” spin-off series maintains the quality of its parent, one of the standouts in the crowded sea of the drug trade subgenre.

'High Maintenence'

The anthology show isn’t so much a new phenomenon as it is a very old one.

Julia Roberts in 'Homecoming'

With “Homecoming,” Esmail solidifies himself as one of the best directors working in television. His style here projects a kind of refined paranoia, evoking Hitchcock in hypnotic staircase shots, trippy zooms and spectacular long takes.

Busy Philipps and Kristen Bell on 'Busy Tonight'

The very brief 20-minute stretch of the program quickly felt like pulling teeth.

Hasan Minhaj

There’s no skits or interviews, just Minhaj earnestly trying to persuade the audience to care.
