Criticism Is Dead - Never Have I Ever, Thoroughbreds, and the Olympics

Never Have I Ever, Thoroughbreds, and the Olympics

Criticism Is Dead

We discuss Never Have I Ever, a teen romcom drama about an Indian American girl, and Thoroughbreds, a dark comedy thriller about two white teen girls up to no good.

05:05 Never Have I Ever, streaming on Netflix, is strongest when it goes beyond the silly high school tropes to touch on issues of grief, family, and mental health.

22:48 Thoroughbreds, available on Hulu + Live TV or on VOD, is an unexpectedly clever portrait of privilege and sociopathy.

37:49 Plus, culture notes about the Olympics that we're not watching except through Olympic Village TikTok. (We'll link some examples in our newsletter!)
