Emmy Awards (2019)
I tuned in as radio while I prepared dinner. I missed the first hour because there was important wine to drink but I tuned at the beginning of the second. Almost everything I hated won. Hollywood creates realistic art but has trouble appearing realistic. Billy added flair and Halsey held my attention, everything else was soap. We need to be convinced that representation isn't a part-time job. The host wasn't the problem. 22-Sep-2019
American Horror Story: 1984 (2019-)
Simplicity is the best tailored suit for horror. The mythology is trembly and the franchise is freshening up.
Gus Kentworthy can feed a hungry gay senior trailer park with a strip and a flex. Emma Roberts is making all the right choices. Cody Fern is still holding back a layer. Matthew Morrison's penis is LOL. Leslie Grossman works better alone. Billie Lourd wants to steal it and Papa Murph is initiating another squirt test. 22-Sep-2019
Secret Obsession (2019)
"Captain America" (Mike Vogel) cues us in but the film's refusal to delude, flips us off. 21-Sep-2019
Married At First Sight (2014-)
Experts encouraging couples to overlook red flags in a marriage because pretense defeats how a person feels. 21-Sep-2019
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The (2017-)
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. 19-Sep-2019
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
I Dream of Jeannie (1965-1970)
Unlike Samantha, Jeannie was a divine gift created to titillate and destroy the alpha. Her naivete and subservience was primal but it was the weapon she deployed to bring Tony (Master) to his knees. Women with reach to men always expanded their power. It's what they do with it. If you convince the man, you conquer a nation.
Barbara Eden was an exceptional being high on adorability and sexual attraction. Larry Hagman was the consummate alpha bat. Bewitched was about domesticity and Jeannie was about the liberation of sex. Even when the show orbits outrageous, we forgive for love of character/actor. 19-Sep-2019
Better Than Us (2018-)
The show is better than us. It carves a world where man can receive restitution for a feminist movement. It's not about robots but how we perceive them to be the sexual gratifiers, the mothers and the household maintainers of the future world. The more freedom granted to a woman the less a man needs her. The men are also tested by libido, masculine energy and faithfulness. Women have the capacity to liberate themselves from subjugation, even in a robotic state.
For every false move there are two excellent ones to eclipse it. This is the robot myth that should have preceded Battlestar. 11-Sep-2019
Robot fabulosity pulls you in but it's the intertwining story threads that keep you posted. 08-Sep-2019
90 Day Fiance: What Now? (2017-)
Where punishment is served with impunity. 11-Sep-2019
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way (2019-)
It's all about control. They all have dwindling assets they need to cash in before their reality becomes dire. It's scary, demented and addictive. For the burden's sake, I hope a lot of it is fake. 04-Sep-2019
Sinner, The (2017-)
It doesn't best the first but it doesn't disrespect it either. The star quality is shared as a group with Pullman adding concerned exhaustion to his detective. The new mystery accelerates, deepens and hurls. Gay swatch, moppet intensity, daddy squish and juicy revelations abound. 03-Sep-2019
It terrifies with the psychology that no matter how virtuous the effort, parents can't take pride in giving life if they can't provide a way for the distressed to enjoy it.
Jessica Biel may be putting up walls but they're decorative. She has the same light that burned Farah's wings on.
I couldn't put the book down. 07-Jul-2018
Schitt's Creek (2015-)
Histrionic and unfledged bullshit. 02-Sep-2019
Misfits are created when the understanding of being born is confounding.
Each episode incorporated a distinct flavor that elevated character development and story arc. The whole is a buoyant and succulent melange.
The writing was sharply on edge, the directors' wings were boundless and the actors (especially Z) rose to every unforgiving task.
Z's parade at finale was unexpected, deserved, joyous and brilliant. The music speaks. 01-Sep-2019
The carnival episode was a modern Hitchcock delirious delight. Zen's etch of a drug addict cuts deep. 31-Aug-2019
Etching a recognizable world and stripping Zendaya of Disney cuteness. Feels like home. 28-Aug-2019
IZombie (2015 -)
I wanted to finish it but a constant character shift and the silliness that accompanies it trumped everything I loved about it. 30-Aug-2019
Not a stellar season because they forgot that mythology trumps "case of the week." The only constant is that the characters are still funny and very squishy. 21-Jul-2017
The finale is what mythologies in these kind of shows are made of. Every episode we watched earlier was referenced for a very climactic ending and tied all the bows together. I am very proud. It was Buffylicious. 16-May-2016
Goes down light, easy and sweet. 21-Oct-2015
Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (2019-)
My heart can't beat to slow moving and hollow-eyed puppets. 30-Aug-2019
Always Be My Maybe (2018)
Cuteness chokes us in, Keanu's monster beard cues us out and inequality kills it. Having the woman win doesn't make it equal, it makes it supremacist. 30-Aug-2019
