American Crime (End of Season 1) (Netflix) and Catastrophe (First Two Episodes of Season 3) (Amazon Prime)

Season 1 of American Crime gets harder and harder to take and slower and more tedious with each episode. The characters are all un-likeable. The story gets less and less interesting. You just wanted it stop, and if you make it to the last episode, it will. All the supposed surprise twists cannot save it. Nothing can. You likely will delete Seasons 2 and 3 from your Watchlist.

Episodes 2 and 3 of  Season 3 Catastrophe are raw, quite raw. They are of the same ilk as Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe and reminiscent of  Harold Pinter. If you don't mind raw, you'll continue to like Catastrophe. But the freshness of the first season is gone, so possibly no so much.
