The 1990s are back and the ugly Clinton scandals are woven into FX’s Impeachment: American Crime Story, with the main focus of the mini-series being President Bill Clinton’s sexual exploitation of Monica Lewinsky.

The Harper House on Paramount+ follows Debbie Harper (voice of Rhea Seehorn) and her family as they struggle to adapt to their new life after Debbie loses her job and they must move from the wealthy side to the poor side of a small Arkansas town.

It’s not easy being Diane Lockhart in Season Five of Paramount+’s The Good Fight. The liberal feminist lawyer, a name partner in a well-established black Chicago law firm, is conflicted because of major attacks of white liberal guilt.

A dark comedy premiered on Showtime on July 18 that centers around a depressed, suicidal widow and her grown daughter’s family. Adding to the mix is a teen character who was born female but hopes to transition to male.
This season of the liberal legal drama The Good Fight (now on Paramount+) started out slow, more so than previous seasons, mostly because the prime target, Donald Trump, is out of office.
