Little Fires Everywhere (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
We feast on a most delectable future whilst our brains ping pong. Wright daddied up, Wood is glam assassin, Paul does his thing and Newton yums. 17-Mar-2020
Celebrating the heritage that creates a Mexican that all else take for granted. Choices are different for families that break their bones for the sustainability of another race. The fear arises when in order to subsist, the heritage dissipates... like plastic.. because its environmentally abusive in the land of the free. They're obnoxious, loud, tacky, sweet, lovable, squishy, touching, funny and bright. Gracias. 04-Mar-2020
Go Ask Alice (1973)
Diary of a teen with an addictive personality. It is nice to hear the words of tragedy being spoken by tragic and even though it enlightens, it doesn't resolve. Addictions occur the moment you can't latch on to life. It provides good details on soft parenting, physical instability, sex and pressure. The film bestows as many blessings as calamities. Griffith gives good priest, Mackenzie Phillips haunted and the Shat(ner) tries to steal the film with his blinkers. 24-Feb-2020
Below Deck Reunion (2020)
Andy squished, Kate demurred, Simone pondered, Lee combatted, Courtney intellectualized, Riley teetered, Abby could care less and the rest of the Avengers allowed the incredible Hulk to talk for them. (Captain walking out to get legal counsel was cowboy.) 18-Feb-2020
After Life (2019-)
Gervais profiles the catabolic generation and spins their sadness into comical whimsy. He is perfect denouncing life and burning it. It's a reality few can see. It talks maturely about aging, death, suicide, loneliness and contempt for the life that bore it. (Ricky's witticisms are wicked clatter.) 17-Feb-2020
Horse Girl (2020)
The title sets it up for failure. Mare straddles insanity via conspiracy theory, almost every character is hypocritical and alienating and the balance of insanity versus sanity is insane. (Hint: the horse wins!) 15-Feb-2020
Academy Awards (2020)
The Academy figured out that diversity comes in more than one color.
The "Parasite"s snared it.
Eminem was an unnecessary surprise, stirring thoughts of homophobia, sexism and racial encroachment whilst being lauded and absolved.
I'd be "right" if Olivia Colman hosted the Oscars. She's toolshed hilarious (handy but sharp.) The show feels lonely without a parent to supervise it.
The musical numbers were welcome, the star pairings were amusing and the show knew when to wrap it up. 10-Feb-2020
Thorough telling of the process a family must endure to indict a priest for raping their son. The priests creeped, the church perused, mama lifted while daddy struck and the lawyer slaughtered. The film was more vocal about explaining the details than the "woke" generation could ever handle. 09-Feb-2020
Will & Grace (2017-)
The show energizes when there are dashes of brilliance that made it. The bi-sexual episode was tart, spoke for each generation and fulfilled a compromise. 09-Feb-2020
Snide and sweet. 13-Mar-2019
Exposing our weaknesses will force our strength to come out. Good job. 02-Dec-2018
The waitress killed it, the drag punched it and Grace/father/writers greatly punctuated "me too." Joy. 05-Nov-2018
Each actor hit an old note and the quickfire delivery allowed us to laugh with them. Tacky looks good on us. 08-Oct-2018
The teen girls deserve a sequel and Debra Messing got in touch with the Grace we all know and love. 12-Mar-2018
Allow them to grow up in character and we might never leave. 06-Nov-2017
There were times that Mullaly's Karen and Hayes' Jack were teetering on caricatures of themselves but all gets forgiven when we heave our first laugh. The politics are sharp, the hard work is evident and our love is unwavering. Welcome Back. 01-Oct-2017
Safe Harbour (2018-)
Would you save a life if you think it puts you in jeopardy? It gripped and swerved evenly between the privileged and the do goodness, accentuating all the flaws, the heart and the life balancing we all endure. Each wields power that the new world has entitled them to but misconception, anxiety and unburdening (through violence) keep manifesting the elephant in the room...stereotyping to get a point across or to do more harm...to run away from it for as long as the effect is not needed.
It loses two moons because it ended with everyone getting a car and it feels the threat was for naught. The ending is a whimper. Life has consequences. 08-Feb-2020
Stranger, The (2020)
The wows were cross-stitched to perfection. 05-Feb-2020
I'm only two episodes in but I think it's about a future where snitching trends...like, "save the world" kind of..."trendy." I'm intrigued. 02-Feb-2020
Good Place, The (2016-)
Finale. I liked the idea that we choose when to end our lives. Every character was sentimentally dismissed and Danson squished the mightiest. 04-Feb-2020
When you free a series from the restraints of discipline and thought, it becomes everything and nothing. The romance is ill matched plus unfeeling and the hottie/asian is suffering from acute stupidity. 27-Jan-2019
It moved forwards predictably, simplifying life without ever defining it. 30-Sep-2018
It coasts on adorability (Ted Danson and Jason Mendoza) but the writers have a knack for erasing the outline and having them/us recommence. They also pat themselves on the back by having an asian represented as inane but I find that limits the actor and society will think they're all stupid. You couldn't find a medium that doesn't propel an insult? 12-Feb-2018
October Faction (2020-)
"The Americans" in the Buffyverse with its own ideas.
Twins united is a powerful concoction. He's gay with no tolerance for sweetness and of suppressed privilege. She questions why her life doesn't fulfill her essence. They both do everything to upset their parents. Their awakening untangles excitedly.
Family history keeps the mythology pressing on.
Daddy has a gun, grandma has a gun, they all have a gun but no one grips it like mama.
The show handles its business like a bullet - straight through - no bullshit - not for squeaky screamers.
"Big Bad" seems to be representing.
There are a variety of monsters, entanglements and enlightenments for an open world of writing fun stuff. 29-Jan-2020
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
