    Sorry for You Loss plays out a lot like grief itself--it’s meandering, unexpected, complicated, dark, occasionally funny, and puts everything around it into sharp relief. It’s not what you would expect on Facebook, but it is definitely worth seeking out.

    Sorry For Your Loss is a gem of a show. With a cast this impressive--in Olsen, an Avenger; in Tran, a Star Wars alum; in McTeer, a renowned Oscar nominee--a series this well-executed would ordinarily be a marquee entry in the fall TV season.

    It’s the kind of series that’s instantly so fully formed, so funny and candid and wrenching right from the start, that you almost question the emotional propriety of it all.

    With the help of some sharp writing, charismatic supporting characters, and Olsen’s slyly sympathetic performance, Kit Steinkellner’s drama finds a way to portray the reality of grief without letting it overwhelm the show entirely.

    The show is smart about the connective tissue of memory and how places or sensory experiences can serve as time machines, making a lie of any suggestion that it's easy to move forward after tragedy. ... This already feels like a show of some worth, even if it requires accepting yet another stream of TV into what is a roaring river.

    A sensitive, nuanced and particularly well-acted dirge.

    Some internal conflicts arise, but even those turn repetitive within the first two hours, and the stagnant plot is only magnified by individual character inconsistencies.
