Sunday Review: End of Summer Round Up
Some highlights and lowlights of the season.
The first The Addition Sunday Review came out in May, just as summer was starting to appear. It focussed on my love of Friends and other US sitcoms. As the nights noticeably draw in, it is time to reflect on some of the cultural hits and misses of the season.

There is loads of exciting stuff coming out in the next few months, so I'd love to know what readers want me to watch/read/listen to. Tweet me or leave comments below (if your subscription allows).
Two of the shows I've reviewed since launching this Sunday segment are “The Newsreader” and “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law”. Having continued with both of them since publishing those reviews, I am happy to reiterate that they are very much worth watching. The reflection of real events in “The Newsreader” is really good, as is the way the relationships between the characters develop alongside what they are covering. The manner in which the series tackles some of the social issues at the time, like the attitude towards gay people, is also very powerful and reminds viewers how far we've come in such a relatively short space of time.
