SideReel Power Ranking: Week of February 19, 2017

Things remain surprisingly steady at the top of the the SideReel Power Ranking, a weekly look at the TV shows garnering the most attention on SideReel.com. But there are two big movers. Powered by its supersized Season 3 finale, How to Get Away With Murder jumps seven spots to land in the fifth position. The show (along with the entire original TGIT lineup) will be back in the 2017-18 season. The ranking's sole newcomer is HBO's latest event series, Big Little Lies , which lands in the 10th spot. The seven-episode series' cast is full of A-listers, but expect star and executive producer Reese Witherspoon to be in the running for all the awards later this year.       Top 10 Shows on SideReel: February 19 - February 25   1 - The Walking Dead   2 - Girls   3 - Suits   4 - Riverdale   5 - How to Get Away With Murder ▲▲   6 - The Vampire Diaries ▼   7 - The Flash   8 - This Is Us ▲   9 - Grey's Anatomy ▼   10 - Big Little Lies ●     div.post p { text­align: justify; }

Girls: How the Matthew Rhys Episode Compares to the Patrick Wilson Episode

This week’s episode of  Girls  — in which  Hannah Horvath spends the entire half-hour with an older man she barely knows  — will remind you of another bottle episode in which Hannah Horvath spends the entire half-hour with an older man she barely knows. I’m referring to season two’s “ One Man’s Trash ,” which places Hannah inside an impeccably renovated Brooklyn brownstone owned by a hot doctor named Joshua (Patrick Wilson). When the episode first aired back in 2013, it marked an especially divisive moment for an already divisive show. Slate’s “Guys on  Girls ” discussion asked, “ Was that the worst episode of  Girls  ever? ” then more or less concluded that it was, because it was too difficult to believe that Hannah and Joshua would have such a spontaneous fling. Todd VanDerWerff raved about the   episode for The A.V. Club while also acknowledging that it represented “ everything people who hate  Girls  hate about  Girls .” Meanwhile, Vulture’s Matt Zoller Seitz   argued that what made the episode so compelling was the way  it toggled between fantasy and reality , without ever clarifying on which side of the line it fell. ....Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2017/02/girls-hbo-matthew-rhys-patrick-wilson-bottle-episodes.html?mid=full-rss-vulture
