Best Lines of the Week (July 15-21): ‘It’s Only 9 p.m., the 9 a.m. of Nights’
The TV rollout was strong as ever this week — which seems to be a trend this summer — with some series just kicking off while others are edging closer to their finales. Regardless of where they are in their seasons, however, many featured some knock-out pieces of dialogue.
Powerful performances continue to come out of Apple TV+‘s Black Bird, as Taron Egerton‘s Jimmy Keene finally met serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser), laying the groundwork to coax a confession out of him. Tensions also ran high on Mars in For All Mankind, as the already shaky alliance between the Soviets and NASA was strained even further. On a lighter note, Tuca & Bertie‘s hilarious one-liners drew out the laughs, and last but not least, Virgin River brought the soapy drama back in full force with its fourth season.
