The Alienist - Castle in the Sky - Review: "People can be better than nature intended"




Kreizler confronts the demons of his past. Moore tells Sara the truth. Connor takes matters into his own hands. The team closes in on the killer as time is running out.

Here we are, guys. Last chapter of The Alienist: what happened in this crazy hour? Let's do a little recap. 

Sara is determinated to bring the murderer down. At this final point, she is one of the most compelling characters in the show: at the beginning, I didn't give Dakota Fanning any credit, mostly because I'm not a fan of her. I'm glad I've changed my mind.
Sara and Kreizler have a heart-to-heart talk that I've appreciated, since they've barely stood each other during this season. Laszlo apologizes for his behaviour and they both share memories from their past. 
Little boy Joseph is alive, while an other kid has been cut and open in two - ew. Moore of course blames himself because he left another child being brutally killed. John realizes you only live once, and as sort of atoning for his sins, he confesses his love to Sara. Pay attention: symbolism and religion are often a subtext in this show. Just think about the killer who strikes during Christian holidays.
Also Kreizler is living what it's called a religious crisis. Once he was a catholic, then he was not. Now, he has a change of heart.

As said, "the sins of the fathers will no longer be visited upon their children." And that's what happens with the killer: Beecham is hiding, and after some fights, he is shot by another contender. Connor. When Sara approaches, he threatens her before starting to choke her; shorty after, Connor gets shot by her, and he eventually dies. What Mrs. Howard did was bravery and a step ahead for a woman of that century. When Roosevelt learns about it, he simply replies her dad would be proud. Ah ah.

Of course, an alienist is a doctor of the mind, but the actual science is primeval back in that time. So we will never know Beecham's motive, I guess it's better that way. To add mystery. All's well that ends well. 
Moore confesses his love again to Sara; while Kreizler confronts his dad and his demons. After all, he realizes that people can be better than nature intended. So what does this mean? His studies are just began.

The show is clearly well-made: The Alienist has a partculary attention for details. It can be a single object, a body part, a corner of the street. The weakest points of the show are the main characters: their interactions are poorly brought to the scene. It's like they have some great ingredients but they can't cook a good cake.
The question is: did Castle in the Sky provide the answers we needed? The answer is yes.

Splitting Up Together - "Pilot" - Preview





Jenna Fischer makes her comeback to a primetime comedy with tonight's premiere of "Splitting Up Together" on ABC. After starring in "The Office" as Pam Beesly, or one half of the iconic Jim and Pam, this is her first major broadcast show as a series regular. Her work in this new comedy definitely stands out amidst the rest of the cast.

In “Splitting Up Together,” Lena (Fischer) and Martin (Oliver Hudson) decide to get divorced but continue living in the same house with their three children. They each take a week to be the ‘parent’ and live in the main house with the kids while the other one takes a break from all of it in their garage. The show is about how the two navigate their new normal.

It’s not entirely a unique premise, the whole ‘will-they or won’t-they’ romance of it all but “Splitting Up Together” surprises you by handling the situation more tenderly than most but it still has a little ways to go in terms of finding its groove.

Before its big premiere tonight, here is a quick advanced preview of the comedy.

The show doesn’t take more than a few beats to get to the core of the situation aka Lena and Martin’s sullen marriage and how it got there. Martin is still basically a man-child and Lena, who is a little more uptight than most, got tired of this. As seen in the trailer, they break the news to their friends: Lena’s sister Maya, her father, and another married couple, Arthur and Camille.

Their three children -- Mae, Mason, Milo -- don’t seem to be too upset by this news. At least, not in episode 1. Lena is obviously the stricter parent while Martin cares more about spending time with the kids even if it means eating lots of unhealthy takeout instead of cooking them a decent meal.

During Lena’s parenting week, she’s faced with a unique problem with Mason: his puberty, which is causing bodily issues for the dude. She’s unsure of how to handle it but she does get help from a very cute doctor. Martin, meanwhile, comes to a realization from an unexpected source about how he contributed to his marriage’s downfall, which leads to a polite confrontation with his now ex-wife about each of their behaviors.

What works in “Splitting Up Together” is the lack of the unnecessary laugh tracks that most comedies end up using. There are moments of real depth on the show, which is also very refreshing. It’s not an outright laugh machine but that doesn’t mean there aren’t moments of comic relief. They mainly come from the couple's other married friends, Arthur and Camille (played by Bobby Lee and Lindsay Price). The children do a decent enough job, as well.

My concern about this comedy is that the spark between Fischer and Hudson itself is scarce and fleeting. Maybe it’ll continue to build as the episodes go on. Its only episode one so I will hold out to see if they flesh out their characters better. We don't even find out what Martin and Lena do for a living in this episode! They’ve dug themselves into a hole with this plot because there aren’t too many ways this show can carry on without adding abstract twists for Martin and Lena that prevent them from getting back together (if that’s the goal, which it probably is).

I’ll give this show a few more episodes to see if they tighten their narrative and improve character development while continuing to settle into the healthy mix of humor and emotion for the rest of its run.

“Splitting Up Together” premieres tonight, March 27th at 9.30/8.30c on ABC. Will you be watching?
