Bryant's a star, and Shrill lets her shine as brightly as Annie so badly wants to herself. Laugh-out-loud moments are few, but before long you'll be smiling as broadly as Annie.

I like Annie. I like being with her. Unfortunately, her relationships are too underdeveloped to emotionally invest in.

The main reason "Shrill" lands is Bryant's unfussy performance. She radiates the wounded hopefulness of someone who's ready for the next chapter of her life, and by the end of the six-episode season, she's there.

It's a quiet, gentle show, suffused with a kind of tender restraint.

It's the sort of capacity for growth that's worth sharing as loudly as possible.

I sincerely wish Shrill... had existed 20 years ago when a younger me so desperately needed to see Annie.

On that count, Shrill delivers, translating West's real humor, hurt and heart to screen. Whether than translation moves you probably depends on your life experience, but that doesn't detract from the full, in both emotion and body, woman at the center.

Shrill offers a more realistic view of the changing feelings around women's bodies. There's a life beyond size and a love and appreciation for the size you're in.

Shrill is a fresh voice in a sea of sameness and you'll burn through the six 23-minute episodes so quickly, and you'll want more.
