Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The (2017-)
I think Amy-Sherman Palladino and Mr. Palladino have turned me bi-cranial. I can't hate them because they keep saying what I'm thinking. Mazel. 19-Sep-2019
The addiction starts right away but the spell is cast in the middle of season 2. There's Gilmore flash wit, character peak and writing punctuation. I may not have swayed in season 1 but I'm swaying now. 18-Sep-2019
No matter how cute, when a dog spends most of its time yipping and yapping we are incapable of seeing its soul. The writing punctures, the music helps and everyone is professional but I have to wonder if that's all there is. When we insert the sensibilities of our present to make the past more tolerable we are erasing the essence of time that brought it to life. 16-Sep-2019
Sinner, The (2017-)
It doesn't best the first but it doesn't disrespect it either. The star quality is shared as a group with Pullman adding concerned exhaustion to his detective. The new mystery accelerates, deepens and hurls. Gay swatch, moppet intensity, daddy squish and juicy revelations abound. 03-Sep-2019
It terrifies with the psychology that no matter how virtuous the effort, parents can't take pride in giving life if they can't provide a way for the distressed to enjoy it.
Jessica Biel may be putting up walls but they're decorative. She has the same light that burned Farah's wings on.
I couldn't put the book down. 07-Jul-2018
Gorgeous ladies...and men, musical zest, smashing show and a hopeful ending. It broke it and healed it...the heart. 28-Aug-2019
"The Man That Got Away." Judy defined it and Billy spelled it out. 25-Aug-2019
It gave us a vogue teaser, it made gold edible and the love story was sexy. 23-Aug-2019
Ryan's episode didn't hand me an enigmatic vogue but it gave me beauty of soul. 23-Aug-2019
Do I have to vogue to earn a gay family like this or is that sentiment stuck in the past? The show retains its high sheen fabulosity but ballroom direction needs to stress its entertainment notch in order to fly closer to Billy Porter's coordination. 21-Jul-2019
The release was due to its faithful history and devotedly charged performances. 10-Jul-2018
Every week it grows in beauty and endearment. One more moon and Papa Murph makes me blow.
Christopher Meloni is now inducted into Daddy Squish Hall of Fame. 03-Jul-2018
It's about family. 27-Jun-2018
Ryan is tapping into the artistic awakening of its raw talent. Learning as they go. 24-Jun-2018
The seed has been planted but in order for it to grow it needs to escalate the celebration. 23-Jun-2018
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
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
Orny Adams: More Than Loud (2018)
Hilarious daddy that would never spit out a child because he cares. 01-Jan-2019
I Love Lucy Christmas Special (2017) in Color
Woman empowerment is obtained by walking forward while doing it "your" way. Lucy created a path... whether you walked behind her or beside her...we should have surpassed her by now. No one has.
The color is candy. 15-Dec-2018
Color only adds adornment to an American sweet as we celebrate more classic detail. 23-Dec-2017
The series tackles mental health treatment and unlocks its mystery.
The length of it mattered because I was always surprised when each episode closed.
Every frame was effective.
Bobby Cannavale tears up his dip.
Stephen James piles the right amount of sincerity to make us care about his treatment.
Sissy Spacek. She deserves the show.
Alex Karpovsky. He creeps.
Shea Whigman. Every time he played with his glasses I shudddered with glee.
Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The kind of spectacle a mother should try to be.
Hong Chau. The perfect rise.
Julia Roberts. There is no bullshit. Her confidence in art is our trust. She lets no one down.
Written by people with forward self-reflections.
Sam Esmail. He shook it and rocked it until he reinvented it. Respect.
I was totally absorbed, grew a brain cell or two and became a fan. 14-Dec-2018
Doctor Foster (2015-)
When the revenge and anger spills to the innocent, the assets (writers, actors, directors, et al) are deployed to explode in ironic wickedness. 02-Sep-2018
If you want to see an intelligent, rightly obsessive and fermented professional scourge the hypocritical aspects of her life... her name is Surrane Jones. She releases our anger and puts it to rest. 19-Aug-2018
...because Tabitha (Erin Murphy) was an adorable moppet
...because Aunt Clara (Marion Lorne) was squishier than my dog
...because Dick York (Darrin) was such the professional that we never noticed the pain he was in 26-Jun-2018
...because Samantha stood for every unappreciated group that the child in me could figure out
...because it can't be sexist if its a "happy couple"
...because even when the fx failed them they never deferred from perfection... because for every three they missed they got one so perfectly right
...because Paul Lynde was a great gay uncle when they weren't allowed to socially exist
...because ever since this show capitalized on what magic should be we have been pretending that magic doesn't exist (except in realistic boring conjuring ways)
...because Gladys Kravitz (Alice Pearce) and the artist who created her epitomized the nosy neighbor until she became understood
...because Endora (Agnes Moorehead) is the lesbian Drag mother-in-law we deserve
...because Elizabeth Montgomery can kick Harry Potter's ass with just one twitch. 21-Jun-2018
Star Wars Rebels (2014 -2018)
It respected the original material, voiced it beautifully and the mythology added a punch to the Star Wars Universe. The geek points sum up "the force" where the films could only preach it. 08-Mar-2018
It delivers on the promise of throwback and mythology aside. You'll still believe. 18-Nov-2015
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.
Young Pope, The (2016 -)
It never made clear its intentions. There were great arguments about abortion and magic splatter but the threat never materialized as every character was full of sin and self serving. Silvio Orlando brought creepiness and humanity to Cardinal Voiello and Javier Camara added sympathy and awakening to his Cardinal Gutierrez. It was a performer's presentation where Law reigned because he bit so hard into that American accent that it splintered all other objectives. The fun rises from him. 15-Feb-2017
It's discouraging to think that so many people need to create such an hallucinatory consciousness to help guide them through this world. It initiates weakness. The premier reason to watch is to see Jude Law's nefarious beauty dominate and discharge like the President before us. The fun like the glint in his eyes and impish smile is a performance and it is its relief. Elegantly staged, carefully crafted and intelligent its also complicated and a bit repetitive. His flashbacks keep adding to the same point, week after week. The point may be limited which means there will be lots of filler. Keaton is just as marvelous but I have no sense of where she stands yet. We shall wait and see if it develops like Westworld or if it flounces away. 01-Feb-2017
Night Of, The (2016)
Law is an interpretation that acquiesces for stereotype, arrangement and resource. Riz Ahmed latches himself into our subconscious and we tour the guilt, the disgrace, the atrocity and the humanity in a bus ride full of dire and dread. His eyes haunt as they motivate us to see beyond his race and into the moral and immoral choices of his heart. John Turturro is Daddy Dynamite. His presence is weary, lonely, itchy and keen. When he demands justice we respectfully stand beside him even when all is suspect. He is excellent. Jeannie Berlin is scary real as Amara Karan is sympathetically misguided. The ending is bittersweet as we get to ponder a dog eat dog world where tragedy can make you king and life's climate can parent you futile. 28-Dec-2016
