Boys, The (2019-)
Shue clenches frustration devoutly, Starr chomps evil gleefully and the end punctuated surprisingly. 26-Aug-2019
Graduating superheroes to the next level...consequences. 17-Aug-2019
Exploring the culture was a bright spot but the frights were devoured by silliness. 10-Aug-2019
The first contains the scare, the second and third loses the surprise but I'm still hooked. (Not scarier than mama.) 08-Aug-2019
Stranger Things (2016 -)
PS: I spent most of the season wanting to comb everybody's messy hair. 08-Aug-2019
The magic dissipated in #3 but unity, bromance, and a pulverizing ending held it up. 06-Aug-2019
#2 gratified every sense with throb and tenderness. 29-Nov-2017
There can't be much to disconcert when with every dedication and homage you are dealt original cards with likeable imprinted players and a perplexing with soul reflexing game.
Wynona is unwavering in motherhood vs sanity as David Harbour is papa Bear strength. The kids are inherent, funny and affecting. Millie Bobbi Brown is tasked with conveyance of eye speak and she handles it beautifully.
Success is achieved through inspiration not impersonation. 29-Aug-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
I Am Mother (2019)
It's about control as much as it is about survival. All three characters are mothers because that is a woman's first natural instinct. It has the most force and the film acknowledges it. They battle, the direction alights the mood, it's subject is fresh and I was never bored. 04-Jul-2019
They dominated, they failed and bonded over it. I'd like to see an exploration of the subservient but this point of view sufficed. 03-May-2019
Intelligently pondered and naturally funny. It would rather genuinely portray its aspects than coddle them. A mother to praise, a friend to boast and a sex life to dissect. Ryan O'Connell is less special and more like us. I hope he takes that as a compliment. 20-Apr-2019
Psycho Mother In-Law (2018)
Romy Rosemont intuits psycho and Kari Matchett reaches stoic frustration. The house is gorgeous, the actresses are having fun, I like. 18-Mar-2019
Leaving Neverland (2019)
Art should never trump an act of inhumanity. The family poured what's left of their hearts and it reverberated. 09-Mar-2019
My best friend for life exited mine (15 years ago) because she couldn't distinguish between Michael Jackson's pederast and my gay. To her, it was one and the same. I argued the difference and reiterated that I was a twink devoted to daddies but she couldn't deem me a viable role model for her children whom I rarely ever saw. It's a mother's prerogative to protect her children and for me to move on.
I was being compared to my hero but in his worst light. MJ ruined innocence and the beauty of mentoring kids because fandom is support for the man's inclinations. He insults me.
I was one of these kids who kept believing in magic even while it burned. 04-Mar-2019
Gidget's Summer Reunion (1985)
Little girl feminist revamp. They don't exhibit likeness to any of the original characters but nostalgia is intact. Men prevailed short shorts, everyone oozed good health and greater hair and the environment exuded flexibility. 27-Feb-2019
Walking Dead, The (2010-)
The Governor capped villainy, the creators refuse to scientifically explain or move beyond its gloomy existence and another season of Negan smirks is off-putting. I'm quitting because it has no end and they are killing the future of zombie inspiration by hogging and pummeling us with it. 21-Feb-2019
Oops, I thought the show was evolving. 29-Nov-2018
Sometimes it's hard to see past the corn fields. 12-Nov-2018
They gambled 7 minutes too long. The alpha phased out. 05-Nov-2018
The most staggering surprises arise after sobering us for heartbreak. It was poetry. 11-Dec-2017
It ended to satiate the fans, bathed from blood of a cliched and predictable heart plus a curtain close. 03-Apr-2017
This is the 3rd time that Jeffery Dean Morgan has invaded a series at its vertex. I was always waiting for the grand manifestation of the buildup and all we got was a daddy with lots of fuckability, a frozen smirk that unnerves and trite villainy. Do over. 11-Nov-2016
Mature grit. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to interpret as we wish. 09-Nov-2016
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
Wrong Friend, The (2018)
It's twinkie psycho delight, Cleopatra Jones revenge and Lifetime hopeful achievement practice. 18-Jan-2019
Sometimes we need to take a trip to the land of fantastic in order for reality to sink in. The balls are unbreakable. 19-Dec-2018
A Christmas gift that explodes. 16-Dec-2018
It's high on a drug that doesn't exist. Nothing/everything makes sense. I stick with it because I want to see the child saved and because messy daddy keeps it angry and moving riotously. 27-Nov-2018
