Emmy Awards (2018)
Game of Thrones won Best Drama. We still like horny fire breathing dragons? 17-Sep-2018
Aretha makes everything look good. 17-Sep-2018
There were only two competitors for Best Actress in a Drama. Elizabeth Moss earned it and Keri Russell deserved it. 17-Sep-2018
The engagement almost made me believe in mom and pops again. 17-Sep-2018
Betty White was a beautiful surprise. 17-Sep-2018
The jokesters (Colin Jost & Michael Che) made us uncomfortable while appearing rude. When you let hostility rule it spills over to the land of magic. You may not want to celebrate them but we deserve them. 17-Sep-2018
RuPaul's Drag Race (2009-)
Finale. Salud. 29-Jun-2018
Reunion. It was about gay pride...the real one. 22-Jun-2018
The girls brought me happiness. 18-Jun-2018
The highlight was watching Ru bring adorableness to her drag. 26-May-2018
Good taste in body parts, great camaraderie between the girls and the showdown was built for the audience to stand as the girls bow. 22-May-2018
It was everything the last all-stars forgot this show was about. 27-Apr-2018
Ru was art deco doll, the girls brought fire and fantastical whimsy to drag and an integrated roster of pretty boy. Christina flashed her gay badge which warranted hope for an artistic comeback that only a supreme deserves. I'm excited. 23-Mar-2018
Westworld (2016 -)
A robot can do some miraculous things but only our minds can take it to heaven. Poetic completion. 26-Jun-2018
Well played, well processed and well done. 18-Jun-2018
I spent the last hour surmising the weight and impossible cost of these robots because the show no longer computes. 08-Jun-2018
Thandie still stuns but logic has scattered. Our belief system cannot compute panoramic robot suffering. The closest tech we have to robotics is "Alexa" and she can barely get my name correctly or throw out the garbage. There is no human voice to empathize with. 01-Jun-2018
It all tied like a protrusive golden braid that ignited the players and extinguished all doubts. It was complete, it reinvented its mythology and made it relevant. Every revelation was rational and kick ass. The ladies kill. 15-Dec-2016
It's a Gurlworld and beautiful Thandie rules atop it. 23-Nov-2016
There is plenty for the eye to focus on but clarity is direly needed. I can't tell a robot from a human and I don't understand the waste of having robots enact when there are no humans in evidence. Also, we live in a Big Brother world where everything and everyone is followed and filmed yet they keep losing track of them though their technology is so advanced it can create humanistic automatons. I am only at the halfway point and Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton have my attention but it better add up to something. 14-Nov-2016
RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars (2018 -)
Finale. Ru made her girls work for a music video and they delivered. It was joyous. The eliminated returned and stabbed the competition in the eye. They chose friendships and favors over hard work. Shangela got ousted from energizing the finale because she already had a big fan base which means the last lip synch didn't register and the second runner up won the title. Foul. 16-Mar-2018
RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars (2012 -2018)
In a season where Ru gave the all-stars every opportunity to strut, they repaid the legend by teetering. Shangela's hilarious lip synch catapulted the show to greatness and the girls finally gave us some soul searching but the next group needs to singe to continue mama's legacy.
The ladies seem in dire need of art inspiration. SNL history has a roster of the most empowering females to celebrate and emulate. Just the thought of them and the characters they slayed should elicit a laugh. 10-Mar-2018
The battle was worth saluting. 24-Jun-2017
Snatch Game is allowing us to ponder. Do the girls not emulate our current divas because there is no access or because such legends are not calling out to them? That's not fun. Our divas need to cause more of a ruckus. 29-Apr-2017
My original review has been changed to reflect that in fun you can disrespect a group and commit error with one unfortunate word. 29-Mar-2017
Reunion. Thank you. 03-Nov-2016
I was a little dismayed how little spectacle and celebration was involved in crowning this year's All-Star. It seemed rushed and gagged of money. Couldn't a club donate their space to the great Ru-Paul and allow her ladies to shine in the atmosphere that bore them? The lift to either cause wouldn't hurt and it would delight us. 14-Oct-2016
Congratulations Ru, you are still Queen of your domain. I met you once as you towered on a float in a NY Pride Parade. My buddy and I followed your float to the tip end of Christoper Street before a turn to disembark and traffic halted and locked you in place. You blessed everyone with a most rousing lip synch and array of dance work. During the storm you created you acknowledged and waved and I welcomed the rain that created a rainbow for the rest of my pride fest. You defined a moment that was never topped. Class act.
The reason this show excels when other realities mimic is because the show and the pretense is in their drag. Drag is in the background of every gay man whether you care to acknowledge it or not. Every contour, shading and hardware is depicting the hardships and the joys our lifestyle can drop. They enact it in exaggeration and a softer guise so the hurt doesn't cut so deep and the joy is longstanding. After much schooling and thought, I respectfully acknowledge that they are more than an accessory, they shine brighter, work harder and fight butchier.
All-stars entertainment value is never in question because even when things are not progressing how we'd prefer you don't stop brandishing or humanizing yourselves.
I was gunning for Alyssa to win because of her insuppressible showmanship, vulnerable heartbreak and cuntilicious coating. Whoever wins the crown, Alyssa can be assured that she won something more palpable, our hearts.
If Ru wanted to create a gasm she'd bring back all her girls and eliminate them one by one along the time allotted as she would have seen fit. Just curious to know what her choices would have been. 07-Oct-2016
90th Academy Awards (2018)
How can you criticize people who celebrated everything? 05-Mar-2018
I can respect the progress by shifting the roles of the sexes but I can't follow the story because I'm too aware its a cartoon. Its strictly for the kiddies.
I duh’d myself. 21-Feb-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.
Shade: Queens of NYC (2017-)
I warmed as soon as I heard the first heartbeat, and the second and the third... 28-Dec-2017
I would love to cheer them on but there is a third layer of make-up they need to remove before I can associate and sympathize. The dating episode helped.
There also has to be a better way to illustrate their talent than a disruptive and uncertain attempt at a music video. 06-Nov-2017
Will & Grace: A Gay Olde Christmas (2017)
We tuned to watch beloved characters celebrate the meaning of Christmas instead they served up "made up" performing a high school production of Dickens. The laughs were minimal and the dismay for the next season, scary. 07-Dec-2017
Project Runway (2004-)
Even when the artists no longer impress with innovation the hosts/judges alight the stage with sharp ornamentation. Heidi is the beautiful auntie with gifts and story of adventure, Tim is the uncle with support and warm hugs, Nina Garcia is the cultured aunt whose accent can relay the juiciest gossip and Zac is the life of the party with a testy comeback and a grab for everything.
Even when the drama hits a high pitch (the Twins) the production and staff find eloquent solutions to putting the fire out. 09-Nov-2017
Marvel: Inhumans (2017-)
It isn't a perfect rendition of the Inhumans the comics celebrated but the targets they hit are respected. It's not an easy world to create or to succumb to with little or no familiarity.
The things they get right include, the hair, the dog, Gorgon and Black Bolt's face. The ladies need to learn to kick harder and the presentation doesn't need to be a superhero marching band.
It's cheese and I will gobble it because it's not necessarily bad for you. 20-Oct-2017
Marvel: Spider-Man (2017-)
I believe I have seen almost every iteration of Spiderman animate now. This reboot has calmed the bombast, bringing it heart, cool throwback art and youthful strife. I dig. 20-Oct-2017
Incredible Journey of Meg Laurel, The (1979)
The preach places us at the time but can't keep us there. If your message is strong enough, one speech is enough because the art should proclaim the rest. Lindsay is at her best when all is natural and intensive labor is involved. She doesn't hit all her notes but by then you're hooked on the star. Jane Wyman has no such weaknesses because she helped create art and is legend. 10-Aug-2017
Wagon Train (1959)
"The Elizabeth McQueeny Story"
You'd think of nothing exciting when you hear Bette Davis and cowboys, unless she was pulling them (as she becomes one of them.) This episode is meant to be kind to her and she returns it. She's the guest star to a series that brandished established talent and they lent her the lens so she could show it off. It is vexing to realize that what the pioneers fought for is what we for today. Betty wins because she touches upon the art that made her great, serving up concoctions and fragrances that we celebrated and adds a new spin from a grander woman. She even dances for us and enjoys it. 29-Apr-2017
