Death to 2021 may not have the originality of its predecessor but some acutely clever writing and spiky jabs at politicians, cultural oddities, and events that occupied the majority of 2021, make this one hour a perfect companion to float into a better year – hopefully.

Aarya Season 2 review: Sushmita Sen strikes back in Ram Madhvani's thrill-a-minute ride with a spine

The sense of stillness that made Aarya a thriller with a soul arrives quite late in this season. But the delay is planted and deliberate. The pace is relentless, but the core remains uncompromised.

Little Things Season 4 review: The lens of an ending

The pace through the last season of Little Things is deceptively languorous. Even though the takes are long and dialogues designed to be less hurried, there is always an undercurrent of a race to the finish.

The Morning Show Season 2 review: As bingeable and divisive as its predecessor

Season 2 sees the show tackling COVID-19, racism at the workplace, and several other red-button issues, with characteristic verve and energy. However, the old ‘both-sideism’ problem continues to affect The Morning Show.

Sex Education Season 3 review: Another winning chapter in Netflix's saga of self-love

I love that the openness of Sex Education makes me think and reflect, and at times, straight up uncomfortable. But it is a kind of discomfort I am grateful for.
