Bird Box (2018)
We get to conceptualize the threat, Paulson reads her lines in haste, nobody fucks with Bullock and Trevante Rhodes seizes beauty. 04-Jan-2019
Sometimes we need to take a trip to the land of fantastic in order for reality to sink in. The balls are unbreakable. 19-Dec-2018
A Christmas gift that explodes. 16-Dec-2018
It's high on a drug that doesn't exist. Nothing/everything makes sense. I stick with it because I want to see the child saved and because messy daddy keeps it angry and moving riotously. 27-Nov-2018
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
The company allowed the schmuck in me to celebrate Christmas. 02-Dec-2018
The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1996-2003)
Because I may never anticipate an assurance of excellence. 23-Nov-2018
Le Chalet (2017-)
The backstory is the fable, family is the drama and revenge is its horror. It may unfold patiently but it ends satisfyingly. 11-Sep-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
London Spy (2015)
Spy thriller with gay rationale and uncertainty. The candy and performances hoist the mystery while emotion resolves it. 23-Jul-2018
Family tragedy unmasks family secrets which unroots life affirmations that engenders violence to recover. The end liberates any doubts because it inflames with incredulity and delicious family gossip. 17-Jul-2018
Handmaid's Tale, The (2017-)
The choice was maddening but the show was brilliant. 11-Jul-2018
I felt every contraction. 28-Jun-2018
It seems every time a suppressed group is emblazoned for freedom and equality the misinterpretation of spirituality return us to the beginning. Harrowing. 21-Jun-2018
Season 2, episode 7 allowed all the women performers to convey loveliness and unity in their art. 14-Jun-2018
Masterpiece of prick, torment and durability. The performers harmonize beautifully engaging us in the despicable and the championed. Moss resounds hardest because her character's zest for life is dictated intensively. 19-Jun-2017
This is what happens when you take the word of the "book" seriously without weighing the morality or the consequences of a privileged and archaic life. Elizabeth Moss heroically endures much so we can understand the sacrifices the underprivileged must make to survive in a new world that constantly spits in her face, without exploitation. It's scary because even though its fiction, it fits our current mentality like a glove. 16-Jun-2017
Five, The (2016-)
Great math fulfills the mystery, greater act perfects the show. 26-Jun-2018
Eye candy props it and good acting saves it but the intrigue needs to pay off. I have my magnifying glass out. 23-Jun-2018
The secrets we bury will always be uncovered by the most precious. Melodramatic comfort. 21-Jun-2018
It's unfortunate that Hall is saddled with an accent. Its timing creates timidity of character. We watch because every episode contains a juicy nugget that thrusts the mystery. 18-Jun-2018
Americans, The (2013-2018)
Choices were devastatingly wrapped, the actors wrung every drop from a thoughtful script and the suspense kept us aghast and keenly aware that you don't have to be an American to remind us what it represents. Killed it. 31-May-2018
Paige's (Holly Taylor) turn consisted of ripping into mama. Awesome. 26-May-2018
Noah Emmerich's twitch is enjoyable character signification. Margo brought forth her no-nonsense presentiment and mommy and super daddy had a face-off. When Phillip carefully confronts Elizabeth with defiant truths, Keri Russell's face tells us what she's thinking and later confirms it by beautifully vocalizing it. Its genius. 18-May-2018
Mama wrecks and super daddy woke up to thrill us with a daughter life-lesson. 27-Apr-2018
This week's episode was razor cut. It registered after the series' most romantic statement and as a nightmare every parent of any child would like to avoid. Judgment reared it's acidity and Holly Taylor's Paige delivered it as the irritating and paradoxical teen we've learned to regard. 09-May-2017
The sticks remain properly placed. It's a welcome to see Margo Martindale back where she's allowed to play like we like and she deserves. 05-Apr-2017
Homeland stopped being this show as soon as it erased the family dynamic and started exploring its spy cred. Game of Thrones brags about how intellectual they are, The Americans just thinks. 03-Jun-2016
There are performers who act like they have sticks up their butts:
-- a high strung Spanish opera comes to mind (Bryan Cranston)
-- there are also artists so comfortable that they choose to sit on that stick and break it (Alison Wright, Margo Martindale)
-- but only one can unnerve us with reserved emotion by making us feel like "we" have a stick up our butts (Keri Russell)
-- while another conveys such panty creaminess and ferocity that he makes you feel like you have his stick up your ass and you better like it (Matthew Rhys)
-- and finally the faultless good hearts (Holly Taylor, Annet Mahendru, Noah Emmerich) born into the disorder that you have to scream back at your screen to take that stick out.
They can shove their art in my face anytime. 03-Jun-2016
How exciting and intelligent, understatement can be. 02-Jun-2016
American Crime Story: The Assasination of Gianni Versace (2018)
The finale was a peak expedition of how monsters are crafted, the characters that enable them and the casualties who suffer because of it. All the actors were given thoughtful hurrahs and the writing was top-notch cautious and a proclamation of what society studies but never learns from. 22-Mar-2018
The mystery sustains it, the lifestyle quenches it and the players reincarnate its soul. Ricky in shorts is daddy pop-up, Penelope struts and beautifies, Judith Light's Marilyn Miglin held us hostage with brilliance and maturity and Criss/Cunanan is an orgasmic nightmare. Brava. 02-Feb-2018
The production is valuable and Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany vibe electric as daddy/son representatives but the show needs to jolt me further to keep me awake so I can finish watching. 12-Mar-2018
