March 20, 2019
It's a low-key sort of fantasy, the idea of one-time strangers becoming a found family in an urban jungle. But fantasy stories have a way of feeding the soul.

"The Village" represents another step in a brand built around community, connectedness and eyes brimming with tears.

The series is so artificially dolorous that it wouldn't surprise me to learn that The Village is actually an alien space vessel powered exclusively by the rending of hearts and jerking of tears.

The writers of "Village" make the mistake of confusing emotion with quality. It's not enough just to feel; you have to do something with those feelings, too.

This Is Us is a notably well-acted and tonally consistent series. "The Village," by contrast, veers all over the map and does not boast actors capable of selling all of the lines they're given.

The Village feels like it's trying too hard -- as if the show was developed specifically to try replicating the warm fuzzies that its lead-in, "This is Us," regularly delivers.

It's the type of Village that welcomes you with open arms - and should score lots of points with viewers of every stripe.

Treacly, by-the-numbers prime-time tear-jerker that even Brooklyn and a good cast can't elevate. And viewers won't mind in the least.
