Mondays are more than alright tonight with a can’t miss episode of Dietland as our Top Pick to Watch (catch up with our latest recap here) followed by Unapologetic With Aisha Tyler (the Dietland after show), In the 8pm hour, spend some time with Bear G and Derek Hough on Running Wild With Bear Grylls.
Regular readers of “What To Watch” know that I don’t usually do Sunday entries because, ugh, the weekend is so exhausting. BUT, tonight is special. Why? Because tonight is both the season 2 finale of Westworld AND the Season 3 premiere of Preacher. And we here at PCR LOVE both of these shows. Don’t miss either one (you may have to watch Preacher at 11 as Westworld is 90 minutes tonight …).
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger
“Call/Response” (Episode 104)
June 21, 2018
Can I tell you how much I am loving Cloak & Dagger? A lot. I am loving it a lot. That was anti-climatic, I know. The writing is so strong and the acting by these two young leads sells the viewer completely on the 8,000 emotions going on in any given scene.
More than that, they are taking their time with pacing and let the show unfold organically BUT, they are using fantastic narrative devices to do it. Last week’s episode from two POVs and tonight’s “call” and “response” approach … it keeps you on your toes, it makes you pay attention. C&D is saying, “Hey, I am important and you need to put down your 3 other things you’re doing and watch me – or else you’re going to miss something good..” There is NOTHING rote or predictable about this show and man, can you ask for anything more?
Before you read on for this week’s recap & review, make sure you know where we are from last week. Ready? Good. Our deep dive recap and review … after the jump (Spoilers Warning)!!
Before you read on, make sure you’ve checked out our recap and review from last week’s episode here.
After a heavy introspective episode about Plum and her inner demons last week, tonight’s Dietland shifted its gaze outwards, turning its focus on both men’s perception of beauty as well as Jennifer and its growing influence as a movement. Lines are being drawn on whether Jennifer is a terrorist group or the acceptable expression of all women’s collective anger after a lifetime of shitty treatment by men. In Plum’s life, she has to face the concepts of beauty vis a vis the idea of becoming bangable.
Few shows, if any, would attempt to even tackle these subjects. Even less shows would handle it with a modicum of the dignity and decency and nuance that Dietland pulls off on a regular basis. If you are not watching this show, you’re doing it all wrong.
Read our recap and review … after the jump (Spoilers Ahead)!!

Quick reminder that last week ended with Tandy, still driving her stolen “Just Married” convertible, taking a bullet from Tyrone – Tyrone having apparated in front of her just as he was trying to kill Connors, the bad cop. Ty, man. You have to learn to control your Cloak skills. For. Real.
