“Bloodline” debuts with a dark mystery in sunny paradise

With Netflix’s recent push to produce as much original content as possible, the entire first season of “Bloodline” was made available within just a month of the third season premiere of “House of Cards” and the new Tina Fey-produced comedy “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Many criticize the release of an entire season at once, citing viewers who “binge watch” and typically gloss over specific and important points of individual episodes.

A “Glee” full finale

Warning: This review contains spoilers. Fox’s high school musical dramedy, which was a brief but intense phenomenon six years ago, finished its episodic run to a fractional audience Friday with two back-to-back episodes, “2009” and “Dreams Come True.” “2009” was an hour-long flashback detailing the personal journeys that led to the club’s creation while “Dreams Come True” was a flash-forward, where everyone gets what they want and then some. Is the two-part “Glee” finale worth watching, though?

“The Royals” is a royal mess

“The Royals,” the first scripted show from the E! Network, capitalizes on the American craze over British royalty and can best be described as a British version of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” While this premise has the makings of a great guilty pleasure, “The Royals” has struggled to find its footing and fails to live up to its campy, melodramatic potential. The show centers around a fictionalized version of the royal family, headed by matriarch Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley), who struggles to balance her royal duties with her role as a mother.
