Dick Van Dyke Show, The (1961-1966)
Brilliant mad men and women. 30-Jun-2020
Dead To Me (2019-)
All coincidences aside, its power resonated from the word, the emotion and the performance. Ms. Applegate rocketed to combustion. Good job. 20-May-2020
I was riveted by Christina's triumph in irritation and kickback, profiling an uneventful marriage founded on the success of falsehoods. James Marsden illustrates the beauty of an asshole. 30-May-2019
One Day at a Time (2017-)
I will always have affection for these people but I truly hope they find that thing this season lost. 04-May-2020
S4E3. E1 and E2 had me worried. It was loud and high strung in celebration of a second chance, feeling like a parody of itself. Episode 3 brought masturbation realness and hilarity, peak character delight and mama diva (Moreno) steal moments. The hardest I've laughed all year. 10-Apr-2020
All about relationships. Gracias. 03-Mar-2019
Motivating argument about the rules modern life coerces. Proficiently displayed, adoringly regarded and stamping the sitcom with the purpose TV forgot. 13-Feb-2019
Justina Machado is excellent and Rita Moreno embodies everything we miss about a Golden Girl. They've added superior daddy squish and the support is amiable reinforcement. Cheers. 01-Mar-2018
At first glance, you are inclined to think that this is an exploitation of a classic and respected series with token latino stereotypes. By the fourth episode you realize that it chose this community to depict because it needs updating the most and it feeds right into the original's claim. It's hard raising a latin family when the men are scarce and the women try to empower themselves at the cost of tradition. There are times you will be transported to all those arguments Lear presented between classic characters, fair to each but being persistent that the last word goes to the changing present. Justina Machado plays Penelope Alvarez with the same amount as distraught, parental overprotection and survivor's challenge that Bonnie Franklin's Ann Romano did. Rita Moreno's accent is old fashioned pastiche but she is a full character, beloved and is having a helluva time making us laugh. The kids aspire for realness instead of cute and Schneider is cute without the creep. 30-Jan-2017
Little Fires Everywhere (2020)
Washington ached, Witherspoon gutted, daddy Jacks wrecked and the children revolted. The writing did not relinquish the exasperation caused by raising a family by impossible standards. Blanching racism with hypocritical correctness does not a solution create. The most difficult job on the planet is being a mother because every mistake, detracts years of happiness from their children's future. Good job. 22-Apr-2020
A mother's lifelong conundrum is why their kids don't want to be here. (I know! The world you brought us into sucks and you don't allow us to talk about it.)
A mother is always a better parent to someone else.
Reese's contentious rejection of her daughter's sexuality induced audience shudders of deviant delight.
Kerry Washington held her own with her child confrontation and then exploded into Olivia Pope during her court scene. Nice.
The racism resonated, the angst maturely handled, everyone glowed, everyone spoke and I listened. 15-Apr-2020
A young Mia and Elena are introduced with a backstory strong enough to hold its present walls. Young Elena struggles to convey Reese but only because young Reese has been downloaded to our memory banks. Young Mia is studious, observant, respectful and an uncanny joy because she's a pitch and tic perfect Kerry Washington that elicits the heart that older Mia lost. Writing was solid. 09-Apr-2020
A mama cold war, a class distinction an intellectual race riot. It theorizes that women only need to act like a mother to push the children through life. It states that racism's hypocrisy, sensitivity and overreaction will never mend it. The children are at a loss serving as parental investments of an unsettled future while practicing what they learn from them as much as what they hate.
Kerry Washington threw her TVQ out the window to portray a most questionable mother with a permanent scowl on her face, a confrontational outlook and some sort of mental instability. Witherspoon is the mother whose charity she thinks will excuse her parental ditto. She peels enough layers to inform us that she rationalizes that racism is wrong but the safety of her family comes first.
The baby drama is the new focal point and it may be its drawback. The coincidence was grand and mama Mia had no business offering a co-worker, who abandoned her baby, money that would have been better suited for her own daughter. It makes her hard to like.
It's nagging, addictive and igniting. 26-Mar-2020
The beautiful ones return in high style and peak bloom.
Fluidity is tunneled, pummeled and charged. The freedom to inherit all relationship prospects is an elite politic that facilitates mass hurt because the kids that invented it are incapable of successfully mastering it. They're human.
The parents do as Oprah taught them and heal most of their miracles' hemorrhage with gifts and money.
The beauties confusing the system to reclaim justice was resplendent.
The mystery continues and concludes, the ones are masters of bitchiness and heartbreak and the thread is reinforced nylon. Brava! 29-Mar-2020
The season was mapped mathematically and it hit every point. The actors are snug in their roles and stamping their characters. The drama makes you talk to yourself, the police work is thought out and everything looks delicious. Cool as fuck. 23-Sep-2019
They represent with no restraints and the teens are regarded with soul. The societal menace is heavier, coddling is out and the hurt is overwhelming. They are fighting a world adults complicated with wee survival skills. Beauty is diverse and it lingers because the writers keep tearing at it. 23-Nov-2018
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
A Christmas Carol (2019-)
The legend of Scrooge modernized for a realistic mind.
It could've done with some trimming but it still shined.
Guy Pearce dashes, preys and rips as Scrooge. He deduces everything and everyone but himself. His softness towards animals was clever and the "humbugs" were well-earned.
Vinette Robinson (Mary Cratchit) deserves kudos for supplying it with its heart and its threat.
Joe Alwyn had passionate battles with Scrooge that eclipsed the baby blues.
The modern is simple. Scrooge represents every blogger with a gripe that can no longer concede to ideology...the spirits are the influencers, the magic makers and the Gladys Kravitz.' "Bully that man until he burns to the ground or apologizes."
The clues unlock in gift boxes. The heart was put in all the right places. Surprising the viewer with a repetitive tradition is no easy task. Respect.
We all have a Scrooge that we are safe from, whilst we live on the other side, except it's getting harder to stay there. 22-Dec-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
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
Gorgeous ladies...and men, musical zest, smashing show and a hopeful ending. It broke it and healed it...the heart. 28-Aug-2019
"The Man That Got Away." Judy defined it and Billy spelled it out. 25-Aug-2019
It gave us a vogue teaser, it made gold edible and the love story was sexy. 23-Aug-2019
Ryan's episode didn't hand me an enigmatic vogue but it gave me beauty of soul. 23-Aug-2019
Do I have to vogue to earn a gay family like this or is that sentiment stuck in the past? The show retains its high sheen fabulosity but ballroom direction needs to stress its entertainment notch in order to fly closer to Billy Porter's coordination. 21-Jul-2019
The release was due to its faithful history and devotedly charged performances. 10-Jul-2018
Every week it grows in beauty and endearment. One more moon and Papa Murph makes me blow.
Christopher Meloni is now inducted into Daddy Squish Hall of Fame. 03-Jul-2018
It's about family. 27-Jun-2018
Ryan is tapping into the artistic awakening of its raw talent. Learning as they go. 24-Jun-2018
The seed has been planted but in order for it to grow it needs to escalate the celebration. 23-Jun-2018
Jane the Virgin (2014-2019)
Squish served by experts. Thanks. 19-Aug-2019
The moppets are everything we know the reality to be...excessively cute and brutal. 17-Aug-2019
Cowboy Jane. Silliness was slaughtered by heart. 15-Aug-2019
Ivonne Coll deserves applause for granting us a grandmother worth hugging. 15-Aug-2019
It continues to celebrate what we want family to become.
Gina Rodriguez has unwrapped all of her acting maneuvers while her teammates continue serving adorability.
I haven't finished the season yet but I hope they'll continue to make me laugh, swoon and feel a little something. 14-Aug-2019
The improvements are evident though the stories will never shine as bright as its first. What remains and why we tune in, is for love of character which the cast overwhelms us with. Respect for representing and I'd like to replace my mother's reverberating thoughts with the dulcet tones of Ivonne Coll's "abuelita." 07-Jul-2017
This show is very fortunate that most of the actors and characters they created are stupid proof because there was a lot of it this second season. Its time to transfuse the melodrama and inject it with stellar wranglers worthy of these players time. 31-Dec-2016
The show starts to trudge towards the end of the first season because they've done everything with these characters that they imagined and are now revolving to the beginning and leaving a trail of dirt foreshadowing what I was not looking forward to, pomp trumping heart. 24-Oct-2016
Just finished the first season. Along my adventure with this wondrous troop I got to envision and enjoy a latino family fantastic, an honorable nod to our culture and a Gilmore Girls vibe. Andrea Navedo's hot mama, Ivonne Coll's concerned and determined abuelita and Gina's radiant virgin lend the show its heart, its break and its triumph. Jaime Camil is a daddy squish you really want to be your parent. He's a Desi Arnaz intimation with a most adorable vulnerability. There's also staggering hot swatch, bad girls with good hearts and axes to grind and crimes and murders too thick to swallow. 24-Oct-2016
Big Little Lies (2017-)
An assorted bouquet of beautiful flowers in full bloom. The house versus Meryl Streep was everything. 22-Jul-2019
The entire production splatters art all over its walls. Did Meryl Streep accept this role to scare Trump? Brava. 20-Jul-2019
The ladies continue marveling and the word is written by writers who have explored life. 13-Jul-2019
Children hear the darndest things. Meryl's on the case, the ladies are grinding and the drama has my attention. 30-Jun-2019
At end, Nicole steals a chunk of it, Reese gets a moment and Shailene is unfortunately relegated to reaction scenes. The mystery was resolved with little drama and less surprise and hints suggested in earlier episodes were ignored or swiftly wrapped. Female courtesy is fully established but parenting is still in question. Why did it take any child this long to squeal and to trust their parent? Is the intervention of a child's world out of bounds? That is the mystery never answered. 04-Apr-2017
Every week the expectation of even a kernel to a hint of the mystery is doused. The only way to compensate this frustration is if the finale depends on the reveals to make it explosive. In the interim we get three forcible actresses who put their star quality first as the actor in them unravels. Reese dominated the first episodes by being a fierce competitor and an overprotective presence without depriving us of the charm that made her a star. Shailene Woodley is capable and subdued but her character is a question mark that has not been classified. Laura Dern inhabits the witchy and bitchy suburbanite spreading insecurity and paranoia to all her obstacles. Nicole Kidman's story is hardest to digest as she has to withstand sexual exploitation and abuse but once she opens up she never flinches and she makes you recall her real marriage to an alpha. The scenes of her in counseling are beautifully open. Alexander Skarsgard is the epitome of the model husband and actor but nothing else. 23-Mar-2017
Season 5, episode 18: Samantha and Endora rap. 10-Feb-2019
7 Tabithas, 5 Aunt Hagathas, 2 Gladys Kravitzes, 2 Louise Tates, 2 Darrins, 1 Endora, 1 Uncle Arthur, 1 Maurice, 1 Dr. Bombay and the one and only, Samantha. 21-Jul-2017
Honeymooners Christmas Special, The (1977)
Art that was dethroned because the husband was always threatening to send his wife to the moon. It was an idle threat, Alice stood up for herself and the moon seemed like a better alternative to the planet my mother kept landing on.
Still humble, hard working, lacerating and funny. For Adults Only. 20-Jan-2019
Dick Van Dyke Show, The (2017) - in color
Van Dyke made silliness a class act and proved a physically hilarious man. Mary reacts adroitly. The writers wrote with a maturity that should have stuck. Sublime. 16-Dec-2018
They were the modern standard and what should have become key to finding bliss by representing a rational, respectful and a well-informed married couple.
The color is candied and the tribute to Mary, yum. 24-Dec-2017
