SEARCH PARTY (2016)
Equal parts GIRLS and VERONICA MARS, with a dash of TWIN PEAKS. I can't get over how tonally perfect it is. Resonant in the face of mystery and tragedy, sharp as a tack about our urban(e) generation's strengths and weaknesses. John Early is hilarious and Alia Shawkat has a lot more range than I gave her credit for. It is weird to be this high on a TBS show, and weirder that they actually handled it correctly--so much smarter to release it in one go and keep momentum, rather than let people lose track of it in the cable hinterlands.
