Sex Education (2019-)
Its second season gained confidence, borrowed too many scenarios from prior shows without adding a twist of their own and blended too much do goodness and sentimentality. Almost every love relationship arc included a threesome and every reality was punished. Aimee's bus dilemma was its strongest but it should have questioned whether it was a big deal because the friends made it so. The actors and the education are still on point but I believe the show traded in its balls for eggs. 24-Jan-2020
Misfits auditing, recognizing, practicing and adapting. When the concept grows on you, it tugs in all the right places. 25-Apr-2019
Dolemite Is My Name (2019)
Murphy uses the best of his abilities to bring to life a man whose fame exceeded greatness. I understood Dolemite's reference in history but it thrived only because it depicted. Murphy was ready to challenge himself but you can only claim that from superior talent. The laughs mostly fell on Snipes who appeared Blanche DuBoised, emoting every character he ever played and Da'Vine Jone Randolph who supplied great testosterone relief. 21-Jan-2020
Meet Wally Sparks (1997)
Illogical silliness for a ferocious one liner. The supporting personalities are TV staples flexing their muscles to bozo comedy. Poor things. 19-Jan-2020
Schwarzenegger's boyish macho charm and Devito's adorable uncontrollable muppet sustain the funny and sweet but the film's improbability and predictability does not age well. 13-Jan-2020
Ricky Gervais fires back at angry liberals for intolerant reaction to support from Christians, conservatives
Comedian Ricky Gervais fired back at critics who are upset that he is accepting support from Christians and conservatives.
Moving your heritage forward when the rigidity of spiritual devoutness devours the best gifts in life. It respects as much as it questions, it upsets as much you care. The laughs are far to come but land uproariously. It paints the truth and enforces it. 07-Jan-2020
If you can make me laugh through a funk, you're a winner.
Andrew Scott's voice makes underwear blubber. His awareness at Fleabag's asides were adorably funny. The priest brought sexuality, abandonment, modernity and fulfillment.
Everything Olivia Colman touches is funny elite.
Brett Gelman is a slimelord.
Claire is whom I cheer for and Sian Clifford has achieved "great sparring partner status."
The writing is wicked, the ideas are bursting for the new age and it knows when to apply heart.
I wait for the day when Fleabag breaks down walls to give Ms. Waller-Bridge the legendary acting status she deserves.
(S2E3 was responsible for my LOLs. Award drama was priceless.) 29-Dec-2019
When they express heart over hate, it soars. 10-Dec-2019
I can't imagine a more wicked performer to bitch about life and eviscerate men. 09-Dec-2019
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The (2017-)
The calibre still flickers.
The formalization of Shy Baldwin played diligently.
Sterling K. never hurts.
Luke Kirby squishes like a troublemaker that can't see beyond a certain time.
Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle represent its class and the race to catch up to a new world before it changes again.
Michael Zegen, great nips, awesome accent and a big dreamer.
I didn't understand why Zachary Levi was getting another chance but he proved me wrong. The gorgeous giant had something to say and it was great. He left Shazam on a CGI set.
Alex Borstein, representing everything we want to see in the world, slaughtered like a butcher.
Rachel Brosnahan plays the titular with the knowledge that her ambition may not enhance her personal life but she's got to do it.
Soul searching, family values, friendships, fame, failure and a point of view. Fuck you Palladinos. (I mean that lovingly.) 27-Dec-2019
I think Amy-Sherman Palladino and Mr. Palladino have turned me bi-cranial. I can't hate them because they keep saying what I'm thinking. Mazel.
The addiction starts right away but the spell is cast in the middle of season 2. There's Gilmore flash wit, character peak and writing punctuation. I may not have swayed in season 1 but I'm swaying now. 18-Sep-2019
No matter how cute, when a dog spends most of its time yipping and yapping we are incapable of seeing its soul. The writing punctures, the music helps and everyone is professional but I have to wonder if that's all there is. When we insert the sensibilities of our present to make the past more tolerable we are erasing the essence of time that brought it to life. 16-Sep-2019
The movie where JLo snatched her talent back. The ladies are gloriously scintillating as the caper is fermented. 22-Dec-2019
Marriage Story (2019)
I miss the glamour of Hollywood. It's a dead art because we think that celebrating beauty diminishes the underwhelming. A film is a dream. When I dream, I want to go to heaven. I don't want to dream about Martha down the street with her torn robe, washing dishes. Everything is a little bigger and a lot more perfect. We have professionals who can transport us to a shinier world that we might want to emulate. It's a waste of superbeings! I'd watch no classic movie ever if the creators hadn't turned fabulous into an art. We know it's fake, they're not portraying crack addicts and drab sucks. 09-Dec-2019
It celebrates the act of divorce like it's a novelty few of us have experienced. Driver and Johanssen rip through an earsplitting script that offers little insight, poetry or pizzaz. The Gods and Goddesses come down to earth to portray us with little celestial beauty to trim the boredom. Laura Dern knows. 09-Dec-2019
Christmas Survival (2018)
I could only survive 15 minutes. 08-Dec-2019
Satan Met A Lady (1936)
They hired accomplished actors to line read with little expression except snide, stupid or cute. The characters are comic strip flat. 04-Dec-2019
Kissing Booth, The (2018)
Violent dream pole invigorates virgin queen to the consternation of his brother and her bestie. It's an odd concoction of disbelief. A bad boy gets rehabilitated by purity, something the girl loses as soon as he smells her. The parents are of the Charlie Brown variety, they're there but you cant really understand them and they really can't be bothered. The bestie should have been gay because watching porn together and never kissing, is weird. There are two gays that pop-up but all they do is desire, deny and dance. I'm torn. We should have family fare that looks and tastes like bubblegum (with sugar) but I think the teens could use a little cement (for their foundation.) The ending played it safe for everyone but I applaud it because it was the only choice for the genre. 03-Dec-2019
House Arrest (2019)
Daddy mass resigns from societal distress by home imprisonment. It's a phenomenon worth exploring. The cast is pleasing and energetic, the sets are envy inducing but the comedy sways towards buffoonery. Daddy, Rambo and a cell phone trick clinch it. 01-Dec-2019
Please Like Me (2013-2016)
It handled mental health adroitly and it came to a poignantly devastating conclusion. I liked it...a lot. 25-Nov-2019
S3E10. The Christmas episode was a self-awareness revelation. 23-Nov-2019
S3E8. I understand its title, I celebrate how organically and flawed we appear and the icy intent is as sweet as a treat. They are years ahead of us because they are recording us as we live, not how we demanded it to be. 22-Nov-2019
Mamas bless it. 23-Oct-2019
We are discomforted because depictions of reality are. It's not the lab where Chris, Nicole and Hugh were created but it's where life lives. 19-Oct-2019
