AVClub: The best thing I saw on television this week, or last week, or this month, or last month, took all of 40 seconds and only one word.
If you’re on the fence about starting Casual, consider this an official plea: just jump in. It’s not in danger of cancellation—Hulu already announced a second season—but it’s also not generating the sort of energy one might expect from a show this good. Part of it may be the sleepy start, because while both of its first two episodes were solid (and beautiful to look at), this seems to be a show that needs time to grow on you. It’s certainly grown on me. And if you’ve only got 40 seconds in which you can be convinced, then “...” has the scene for you.
