From the very beginning of the series, The Bear from FX is a tense, anxious, anxiety-ridden tale of heartbreak, depression, passion, food, and change. Because of that, I didn’t binge it. I couldn’t have even binged it if I wanted to. The episodes are so raw that I need the time in between, even if it was a day, to calm down.
It’s well written, brilliantly acted, and insofar as I can tell, it’s the closest real-world depiction of many descriptions from Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential that I’ve ever seen on any screen.Declassify >
