The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
It was an envoy for obtaining dirt on celebrity exclusivity except we can look into the future and authenticate their testimonies. A game within itself. 15-Aug-2018
Grace & Frankie (2015 -)
The characters were allowed to age in disgrace and we felt for them. 11-Jul-2018
Jane steps up to Lilly's pedestal and the gay daddies are finally getting storylines worthy of their aptitude and our senior representation. The adorableness takes away some of the fear of getting older and the girls supply a comfortable environment to bask in. 16-Jun-2017
We can totally do without the stereotypical husbands. All we need is Fonda and Tomlin and a phone book. The only thing that can make it better is Dolly. Legends. 31-Dec-2015
Handmaid's Tale, The (2017-)
The choice was maddening but the show was brilliant. 11-Jul-2018
I felt every contraction. 28-Jun-2018
It seems every time a suppressed group is emblazoned for freedom and equality the misinterpretation of spirituality return us to the beginning. Harrowing. 21-Jun-2018
Season 2, episode 7 allowed all the women performers to convey loveliness and unity in their art. 14-Jun-2018
Masterpiece of prick, torment and durability. The performers harmonize beautifully engaging us in the despicable and the championed. Moss resounds hardest because her character's zest for life is dictated intensively. 19-Jun-2017
This is what happens when you take the word of the "book" seriously without weighing the morality or the consequences of a privileged and archaic life. Elizabeth Moss heroically endures much so we can understand the sacrifices the underprivileged must make to survive in a new world that constantly spits in her face, without exploitation. It's scary because even though its fiction, it fits our current mentality like a glove. 16-Jun-2017
Tony Awards (2018)
Live performances are precious but lip synching is counter to everything Broadway stands for. 11-Jun-2018
Man With a Plan (2016 -)
Through the silliness they found their niche...family scorch. 03-Apr-2018
The momentum Matt retained with Episodes is lost. Everyone is coasting. You can place a drink on it (coaster) but unmoved liquid will always ooze through. 12-Nov-2016
The writing experimented with silly (the robot) and erased some of its genuine intentions. The end does reward with character establishment and maturity and the cast add principle to the act. Riegert added beautiful sentimentality and the bromance was uplifting. It will belong to a future time. 21-Mar-2018
The "smug" will hate because they'll see adults combating issues regarding the politics of the world and self-medicating to reach a nirvana without acquiescence. The Legend Bates headlines, clenches the words to support her character in fighting for feminism whilst her voice hoarses from being judged as a parent, an independent and a liberator.
The cast is inclusive, contributing and winning. We finally get to see what Nicole Sullivan has been always hiding from us and Chris Redd and Betsy Sodaro gives us the funny that Kanye and Khloe cant.
There's also man squish, adorability, creativity and truth. You'll get high even when you're not. 03-Dec-2017
Real Time with Bill Maher (2003 -)
Thank you for eloquently voicing a lot of what I've thought in one episode. We don't need to agree on everything but none of us should have to fight the same enemy alone. 05-Mar-2018
Hello. I'm back. There is no time to quibble when the country needs allies. Bill, you make me mad and I need to stay mad so we are alerted and can endure. 30-Jan-2017
Mr. Maher this is where my lover and I part ways with an old reliable friend. We turned to you after the Pulse massacre for enlightenment, encouragement and solace. You provided NRA supportive bullshit and divisive race establishment. Your ignorance that the catholic church has never killed anyone is ignorant and infuriating. My lover and I have no family because of the church, as cowards do not necessarily kill but they infect others to do so. Their lack of compassion and empathy allows us to barely live a life of leisure or comfort. How many of our LGBT kids have committed suicide and have been left alone to fight in the streets because of their continuous derision? You had Col. Lawrence Wilkerson present some sober and well thought options and you snipped it away like the boiling crank you have become. I no longer recognize you in your isolated bubble and I really would prefer if you just blew away before you pop. I will remember you like an old Shields & Yarnell skit. It's definitely entertainment, it's vintage and we can't laugh with you anymore. 05-Jul-2016
Thanks for the adult, witty, thought-provoking, thought-smashing, sometimes awkward or infuriating and mostly funny conversations/arguments. I don't always agree but I know your heart's in the right place. Even cranky Bill is better than none or most. 01-Nov-2015
90th Academy Awards (2018)
How can you criticize people who celebrated everything? 05-Mar-2018
One Day at a Time (2017 -)
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
Gerald's Game (2017)
Woman is on trial for her misconception of love, sex and the evil she allowed men to inflict upon her. It pops, it resonates and Gugino is vulnerable and brave. As soon as it embraces the King horror trope it loses it's grip but not because Gugino has stopped trying. Bruce Greenwood also emits courage and superior daddy squish. 26-Feb-2018
The show reminds us that a good western goes beyond the scope of a gun, a horse and a landscape. We must care for the people who inhabit it and each story must propel the western setting.
The cast is united in encouraging diversity, empowerment and humanity. Merritt Wever bleeds butch and sarcasm on Mary Agnes McNue, Scoot McNairy is a bumbling Batman investigation sheriff and Jeff Daniels will separate your undies from your britches. Every single player grips the accent, brings great face and deploys cowboy strut.
The town may be run by women, but in order to survive it really takes a group effort.
I saw the finale twice and the big bang and heart swept me away both times. 10-Jan-2018
Outlander (2014 -)
It was a complicated season because the realization that as beautiful the sentiment or the romance is, Jamie and Claire united has no merit to those witness to it. There was a selfishness to their love and a discard of family.
Patience is rewarded as soon as the big bad is affirmed (a savory Nell Hudson) and the sea catapults them to Jamaica. Scenes of modern Claire's reaction to the uprise of slavery was horrific, compassionate and uniting. There was "Titanic" imperilment, ecstatic conjuring and renewed star watt coupling.
Just because it didn't end like we wanted doesn't mean we can't marvel at the vision craftily laid out. 05-Jan-2018
The show may have its blemishes but the whole is resplendent. There are frequent instances where Ronald D. Moore will ask the viewers to commence anew with contrasting situations and characters but he always relies on the one constant that upholds the story...romance. Caitrona Balfe as Claire Randall Fraser who compels Sam Heughan's Jamie Fraser from brute to man is the force of the show and the sentimentality. Balfe has a warming timbre and luxurious tilt. I want her to read me a story and in this situation she executes it persuasively. Heughan is virile, protective and heroic. His "Sassenach" phrase can inflame like his stature can overcome. Once we explore the cultivation of their coupling all exposition depends on the chemistry they have in bales to spare us.
This season the makers awarded us with what appeared to be the closing of a story and the prospect of letting us imagine the best end scenario for the doomed lovers. It was fearless, mature and gut wrenching. Unlike its brethren, Outlander's contentious moments were few and provoking but thanks to regardful writing we were allowed to heal along with the characters. The show validates Battlestar Galactica's proficiency as no fluke and Moore and his staff inspired.
Tobias Menzies as the nefarious Captain Randall is unnerving because the writers have the boldness to endow his character with the backstory of a damaged survivor whose actor civilizes him. You hate the character but respect the performer for defining the monster with the right amount of fine tuning.
Graham McTavish as Dougal Mackenzie and Jamie's uncle is bountiful Daddy Squish with some choice acting skills that impelled us to always question the character, his intentions and our investment. Dashing.
I don't know how the story can continue with the completion of the season finale but I'm tuning in and hoping that these creators can overcome the structure and deliver us noble artistry once again.
Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus (2004)
Guttenberg's Ho Ho Ho's may sound anemic but his appeal, as well as Bernard's, are on high. 02-Jan-2018
Exorcist, The (2016 -)
They discarded its foundation and have embraced fan myths and creepy scares. The tip to venerable and a bow to renovation refreshes as we celebrate with distinguished pocket daddies. 26-Dec-2017
The last episode where a major player gets her "evil freak on" was crazy. I think I like. 15-Dec-2016
The series validates that their exists nothing more to be added to the undertaking of exorcism or possession. The twist is lost on us and adds disservice because I would have never agreed to go forward without the cooperation of the two originals that helped define the genre. The twist would have contained little surprise but the payoff would have been astounding. The source gave us scares, shocks, political commentary and even laughs. The series just poses those effects. 11-Nov-2016
