Now Apocalypse (2019-)
High on sexuality, deep in relationships and challenging in concept. The characters range from elegantly disturbing to adorably hunky. I'm in it. 12-Apr-2019
Love, Death & Robots (2019)
It doesn't allow you much prep time. It dives right into the action (with mixed results) but the eye is warped to the land of innovative technical wizardry and it magnetizes. 26-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
How The Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
A cult ascended from it, the Grinch destroyed it, a dog defended it and the Dr. defined it. It's Christmas. 25-Dec-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
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1996-2003)
Because I may never anticipate an assurance of excellence. 23-Nov-2018
It's an acting exercise that neither gratifies or precipitates its subject or ensnares us. 25-Oct-2018
I sit up in anticipation that Theroux gets to suit up his super daddiness and be part of something cohesive. I lay back wary that the fate of True Detective will return to insult us. 24-Sep-2018
Sense8 (2015 -2018)
The sex was terrific.
It pulled from all of us and temporarily created a beautiful landscape and a force. They were our Mod Squad and art inspiration. Credit to the Wachowskis for creating the world we should be living in and for always arousing us with forward action sequences. In another time this might have been our anthem but America doesn't sing anymore. 01-Jul-2018
Its underappreciation may be due to time and how forward the message of power in inclusivity registers. Each 8 represents a struggling community that with aide, strife can be eased and joy enhanced.
The mythology may confuse but when all wicks (acting, action, sex, character development, koolness, heart and beauty) are turned on, its' fireworks. 13-Aug-2017
So fun, delirious and high. It's reaching for somewhere we want to go. Love the intertwining stories and characters. Thanks for the inclusion and the sizzling latino gay. It's a head-punch. 03-Nov-2015
...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
Alex Strangelove (2018)
It's "the" gay teen romp of our time. Its balls are huge, the introspections are clear and the voices are true. It feels like home because it doesn't pander to us and its funny. 14-Jun-2018
