Love, Victor (2020-)
E6-10. Performer TV IQ is high enough to rise above the suds, convey the right emotions, make us addicted and not drown from the weight of the soap. 18-Jun-2020
S1E5. It observes and overprotects its subject. It theorizes that problems only graze and that all people are inherently capable of understanding. Fables only grant the curious teen, added hurt on their venture. I'd rather tell it, solve it and not wait for the miracle to happen. 17-Jun-2020
Never Have I Ever (2020-)
Female driven fairytale of teen empowerment. To obtain such merit, a girl must prioritize "the shortcuts," suppress the lower stereotypes, pounce on a superior royal animal and have it grant her that royal fucking that will liberate her. (So, all girls think.) I don't remember kids talking like this, I hope kids aren't talking like this and I definitely hope they don't start. One episode of unawareness, lack of emotional study and an honest laugh, had me bolting. In fairytales there are no lessons without a witch.
Niecy Nash glimmered gingerly. 08-May-2020
Normal People (2020-)
I quit after two episodes for its robotic love story and for making a half, feel like a full hour. If its purpose is to instruct us on how to navigate teen angst, sex and love, I can't empathize. By twelve, I and most of my brethren were already bona fide sluts (thanks, daddies) and my input wasn't necessary. It reeks of social parenting, enforcement and naive privilege. The writers believe that if you preach hard enough, it will spill into reality. Daisy Edgar-Jones is neither ugly, weirdly or enticing enough to elaborate on an inconsistent sketch of a girl who is written to be all of those things. It's hypocritical. Paul Mescal is wasting his beautiful ass, nobody else matters and nothing happens. 05-May-2020
Hollywood magic starts in bed.
A propaganda film correcting past inequalities by imposing modern thoughts and politics into the mouth of history.
It preaches incessantly because we can no longer be inspired by people's lives as they lived it but how we now prefer it. (Good change comes when we learn from past mistakes, not when we erase them.)
Diversity exists as a pulpit, never integrating or understanding their purpose. Brother and sister needed to bring the humility, homework and incandescence that would compel us to believe they deserve the success they aspire to. Ms. Wong (Michelle Krusiec) completed her homework.
Rock Hudson, Vivien Leigh and Tallulah Bankhead portrayals. The ginormity of man beauty that was the Rock, is diminished when his facsimile stands shoulder to shoulder with Mira Sorvino and when he portrays him like a dork. Vivien was a cartoon transformer shifting from beauty to accent in a manic state. She needed to be all of it. Tallulah is actually very simple to study. You watch her one hour episode of I Love Lucy and follow it up with Bette Davis in All About Eve, legitimizing her. Too busy, huh?
The film within a film seemed abysmal.
I found it offensive that a black woman was portraying a white woman's life. It's like a man portraying a trans.
Free rein to rearrange is exciting only if it follows the rules of its generation. 03-May-2020
Tiger King (2020-)
S1E3. I'm neither addicted, intrigued, impressed, or willing to give a shit. 01-Apr-2020
I tuned in out of curiosity and to give its subject, the benefit of the doubt. I wasn't raised in an environment where I thought hooligans were cute and my idea of celebrating such buffoonery leaves me speechless. Not one soul appears to have one and the glorification of fake swagger has me flatlining. I don't believe in fucking with mother nature or God's fucking plan and I don't believe in making a profit from exploiting it.
(If I change my mind I'll expose myself again.) 01-Apr-2020
Shahs of Sunset (2012-)
I only watch sporadically because they are overly complicated and spoiled. I'm watching this season out of boredom. It is interesting to note that they've handled the "me too" moment with little awareness of what it means and a heaping amount of prejudice. The problem with "me too" is that if you're liked or needed they ("family) can make it go away. Just gang pounce on the other side without giving it one moment's consideration. 04-Mar-2020
American Music Awards (2019)
I have no words... 25-Nov-2019
Carol's Second Act (2019-)
It has a problem growing up. 08-Nov-2019
Why is Patricia Heaton acting like she switched bodies with her teen granddaughter? 27-Sep-2019
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Tell All (2019)
The silences were as creepy as the perjury. The individuals allowed the worst to happen to them because they misconstrued social media's message of full acceptance. When danger is involved, you allow mental clarity to check in not ask it to make you blind. It was an unintentional Halloween special that intrigued and horrified with no special thought. We yelled at the screen but they didn't listen. Everyone knows that Cinderella marrying Shrek is bad. 21-Oct-2019
Man doesn't become until his woman nags him into it. There are two options to the mystery that are obviously dangled throughout the film's course. They are both marred by unnecessary glances that give away the plot, slight dialogue and perplexing demonstrations. Even when he's awkward, Worthington manages to remain squishy. 12-Oct-2019
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019)
Efron explored none of the options that would have freed his character to expose the monster in Ted Bundy. The film could have established more instances like the cuts and closeups during the verdict that had us seeing into his soul. The courtroom drama prances around the diabolical murders and the film is not interested in disrupting his image as a charmer (whom in real life had many ticks claiming otherwise.) 06-May-2019
Good Witch's Gift (2009)
They had their fists so high up us that I couldn't utter a critique. 24-Dec-2018
My Santa (2013)
High-end poverty, determined women, amenable to situating on any daddy lap, crooked trees, miraculous gifts, susceptible children and a twinkie Santa. It's Christmas. 14-Dec-2018
Selling Jets (2015-)
The art of the slippery salesman is lauded. The entitled humbly pretend it's a necessity as they validate that they are the biggest pillagers of the environment. 28-Nov-2018
Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars (2014 -)
They are us. 16-Nov-2018
Is the show exploitative? Yes. Are the doctors quacky? I think so. No one seems to be getting any durable tangible assist. There are always a few celebrities that make it conclusively clear that this is a gig and a paycheck. The show was undefined until clutter tempest Tara Reid showed up. Her ambivalence and stubbornness was suspect until the show's retribution exasperated her mental fragility and awoke her acumen. Survivors have a way of upsurging any challenge and Tara has established that entertaining is her ammunition and the show is willing to detonate to bring us another season. 03-Aug-2016
