For instance, LGBTQ tech advocate Lukas Thoms says he was presented with a first episode with a gay protagonist, while a straight friend received a different episode. Netflix tweeted a response to Thoms explaining the discrepancies: "We've never had a show like Love, Death & Robots before so we're trying something completely new: presenting four different episode orders," Netflix tweeted. "The version you're shown has nothing to do with gender, ethnicity, or sexual identity — info we don't even have in the first place."

"We’re coming up on our 20 years,” the SEAL Team star said on The View this morning, noting that the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spinoff premiered in fall 1999. “That’s amazing to have been blessed with a show like that. That’s really where I started my gig in this acting world. I love that character. So I will say there may be something coming up. I don’t want to give away a lot. It’s 20 years coming up this fall, and we may have something in the works.”

And according to Maureen Ryan, Farscape still holds up. "I can report that Farscape’s frelling* magic is intact," says Ryan. "If anything, on a TV scene that still doesn’t have enough energetic, character-driven, risk-taking sci-fi series (aside from my beloved Killjoys, which ends this year), the wild and woolly Farscape continues to stand out. (*One of the first things you’ll notice about Farscape is that it has its own swear words. If you decide to check out the show — and part of the point of this piece is to make sampling it as easy as possible — you will become well acquainted with Farscape’s many exotic curses.)"

“We made a choice to ‘just get on with it’ last season,” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman says of complaints that last season moved too fast. His fellow writer Dave Hill says Season 8 will run at normal speed. “You obviously don’t want any criticism of any kind,” Hill tells EW. “But with all the things we were balancing to set things up for season 8, sometimes we had to speed things up within episodes. We had a lot of time cuts the vast majority of viewers didn’t catch. We could have a (title card) on there saying ‘Three Weeks Later,’ but we did not. Sometimes when moving pieces around you’re going to cheat a little bit. (For season 8), we tried to keep more of the time logic rather than jet packs.”

The Fox game show, premiering tonight, "isn’t focused on the awe-inspiring physical feats of the obstacle-obsessed," says Jacob Oller. "Rather, the Rob Lowe-hosted Mental Samurai blends the addictive 'I know that answer!' quiz format of Jeopardy! and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? with the delicious sadism Americans have honed over years and years of reality TV. And it’s even better than its ridiculously over-the-top name." ALSO: Mental Samurai never elevates itself above “people sit in a moving robot arm thingy and answer questions."

"Amy does as Amy is, and what’s she’s done in the intervening years is get married and get pregnant," says Verne Gay. "Per Growing, both have been fulfilling and complicated. As intended, they also lend extra meaning to the title. She's grown since 2017, and that's complicated, too. In fact, Growing feels a little like a show that's been engineered to manage fan expectations, or literally stage-manage them, as if to say, this is the new Amy Schumer who's a lot like the old Amy Schumer but new nonetheless. Approaching 40 (she's 37) and motherhood, some evolution is expected and probably necessary. But the transition can't be easy — especially for Schumer."
