TV Recommendation: Bent
NBC's Bent premiered last week, and if you missed it, you should absolutely watch last week's episodes online and tune in tonight at 9 for episodes three and four. Five and six air next week, and . . . honestly, that's probably all there will be. But I have no idea why NBC is burning it off like this, because Bent is charming and funny and delightful. Leads Amanda Peet and David Walton have great, easy chemistry, and Joey King plays the best sitcom kid since Travis on Cougar Town. There's nothing wildly ground-breaking or game-changing going on here, but sometimes, an hour of thoroughly enjoyable comedy that's sweet without being saccharine is exactly what you need.
