TV REVIEW: SEARCH PARTY


Where is it playing?: HBO Max

What's it rated?: TV-MA

User Rating: 0.00 (0 Votes)

When former college classmate Chantal (Clare McNulty) goes missing, Dori Seif (Alia Shawkat) soon becomes obsessed and drags her boyfriend, Drew (John Reynolds), and best friends Portia (Meredith Hagner) and Elliot (John Early) into an increasingly ludicrous and dangerous situation as they try to hunt down what happened to Chantal. Now in its fourth season, Search Party follows the four self-absorbed 20-somethings through the search, a murder, a trial, and a kidnapping. 

The group is needy, self-obsessed, and foolish all at the same time—but somehow you’re still rooting for them. Shawkat is fantastic as the lead, a lost woman who doesn’t know what her next step in life should be living with a lot of what-ifs and if-onlys. The dark comedy is a wild ride through a whole lot of poor decision-making and insufferable self-absorption, and it takes some pretty crazy turns I absolutely wasn’t expecting, especially in this latest season. 

The characters may drive you nuts, but I can’t stop watching these four in train wreck after train wreck. With episodes only 24 minutes long, you can move through this pretty quickly, and HBO is releasing new episodes three at a time. (40 24-min. episodes)

Weekly Poll
Where do you stand on youth sports during the pandemic?

It's too soon—we're still living in a pandemic.
Low-contact sports are one thing, football and basketball are another.
Getting any kids back on the field is a step in the right direction.
They should have been allowed back months ago; our youth need sports.
