The trials and tribulations of an English department chair at a major university.

Matt Roush says...

The always watchable Sandra Oh trades the lethal assassins of Killing Eve for the world of academic character assassination in a broad satire of higher education. She plays Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim, staggering under the symbolic weight of being the first woman and person of color to run a mostly white university’s struggling English department. When a colleague inadvertently triggers a campus crisis, her ambitions and job are on the line. Holland Taylor scores as a bawdy Chaucer prof who’s finally had enough of being patronized by her male “superiors.” (See the full review.)
