New York is golden and all else is diamond. It allows you to believe that love always happens.

Big Bang Theory (2007-2019)
They brought me joy, I dorked out and Buffy doesn't hurt. 17-May-2019
It was a Mother's Day Pop-Up card. Well done. 14-May-2019
It's a group effort, Sheldon. 21-Jul-2017
Steel Magnolias (1989)
Time grants us a reexamination of art. The cast brilliantly transcribed the written word like it was meant for them. Ross creates a world fantastic that you want to suffer in. 17-Mar-2019
One Day at a Time (2017-)
All about relationships. Gracias. 03-Mar-2019
Motivating argument about the rules modern life coerces. Proficiently displayed, adoringly regarded and stamping the sitcom with the purpose TV forgot. 13-Feb-2019
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
Season 5, episode 18: Samantha and Endora rap. 10-Feb-2019
7 Tabithas, 5 Aunt Hagathas, 2 Gladys Kravitzes, 2 Louise Tates, 2 Darrins, 1 Endora, 1 Uncle Arthur, 1 Maurice, 1 Dr. Bombay and the one and only, Samantha. 21-Jul-2017
Dick Van Dyke Show, The (2017) - in color
Van Dyke made silliness a class act and proved a physically hilarious man. Mary reacts adroitly. The writers wrote with a maturity that should have stuck. Sublime. 16-Dec-2018
They were the modern standard and what should have become key to finding bliss by representing a rational, respectful and a well-informed married couple.
The color is candied and the tribute to Mary, yum. 24-Dec-2017
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
...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
Endearing wickedness, courtesy of top notch cast and writers. 21-Jul-2017
I'll have a drink with them. 21-Jul-2017
Friends (1994 - 2004)
Were they inclusive? No. Did they insult us? No.
They are tops because they sought the "A" in performance, geniality and durability. They made us laugh, cheer and according to many, gay. These are the friends you want to spend a lifetime with. 29-Jun-2017
Say Anything (1989)
It inspires youthful appreciation in its depiction of first love, parental burden and social support. The love story zips, the familial zaps and the friends zing. Everything returns to its trio (Cusack, Skye and Mahoney) as they deliver much more than words can say. It is nice to see a youthful society that suffer, indulge, procrastinate, ponder and respect with the capacity of humane thought. I am touched by them. 28-Mar-2017
Family Man, The (2000)
Cage take us on an unclenched ride that makes it safe for us to reimagine a "what if" scenario on a lonely Christmas night. It's been repurposed oftentimes but this translation envisions a pragmatic and hopeful outcome. Without Cage it would be threadbare as he utilizes all the magnetism and vulnerability his craft has to offer and is well shadowed by Tea Leoni and some cute moppets. The writing and directing preserve the magic. 01-Feb-2017
Postcards From The Edge (1990)
Neither Streep or Maclaine are pitch perfect in their depiction of a fictional version of mother/daughter Reynolds and Fisher because the icons they depict are ingrained in our psyche. The actresses approach from study, inside information and revelry. There are moments that even though their talent fails them, they rise to depict the inner souls of the women who are struggling to overcome the love and fear they hold for each other so they can learn to live with themselves. Fisher's writing is authentic, spartan and provoking. They will make you laugh as much as touch your heart. Streep murders the first song but slays the last. Maclaine is Crawford ready and Mary Wickes had one of her best roles ever and didn't waste it. It is a great forward to the doc (Bright Lights) with more personal info as only art can inject. 18-Jan-2017
Brady Bunch, The (1969 - 1974)
The show doesn't pretend to be anything but a bubblegum machine. I'm sure good intent and wishful thinking was in its heart and that's why we forgive any ineptitude. When the gum machine crashes and cracks is when the Bradys evolve into unique portraits of family we can extend our arms to. Not because they are so realistic but because they promise a nirvana that I wasn't able to reach in an abused family environment. Like other delusive scripts, I knew they weren't going to part the sea but I could imagine practicing to be the exceptional person these characters/players fancied themselves and maybe recreate parts of it. I wasn't able to turn water into wine but I could do that.
It is on my best list because like bubble gum they are vibrant in color, unique in flavor and everlasting even when the sugar has been exhausted. They chaperoned and safeguarded me against the fear whilst the real adults in my life generated chaos because it allowed my mind to find sense and hope to be parented. 01-Dec-2016
What's Up Doc? (1972)
Barbra gives us daffy Bugs, Ryan lends beautiful support and Madeline steals it. Fun, zippy and clever. 19-Mar-2016
