Bob Hearts Abishola (2019-)
Exploring multi-cultural attitudes to life problems is interesting. The black characters sparkle but their counterparts appear like unwanted houseguests. I'm sure good writing can fix that. (I liked it.) 25-Sep-2019
The season was mapped mathematically and it hit every point. The actors are snug in their roles and stamping their characters. The drama makes you talk to yourself, the police work is thought out and everything looks delicious. Cool as fuck. 23-Sep-2019
They represent with no restraints and the teens are regarded with soul. The societal menace is heavier, coddling is out and the hurt is overwhelming. They are fighting a world adults complicated with wee survival skills. Beauty is diverse and it lingers because the writers keep tearing at it. 23-Nov-2018
I Dream of Jeannie (1965-1970)
Unlike Samantha, Jeannie was a divine gift created to titillate and destroy the alpha. Her naivete and subservience was primal but it was the weapon she deployed to bring Tony (Master) to his knees. Women with reach to men always expanded their power. It's what they do with it. If you convince the man, you conquer a nation.
Barbara Eden was an exceptional being high on adorability and sexual attraction. Larry Hagman was the consummate alpha bat. Bewitched was about domesticity and Jeannie was about the liberation of sex. Even when the show orbits outrageous, we forgive for love of character/actor. 19-Sep-2019
Better Than Us (2018-)
The show is better than us. It carves a world where man can receive restitution for a feminist movement. It's not about robots but how we perceive them to be the sexual gratifiers, the mothers and the household maintainers of the future world. The more freedom granted to a woman the less a man needs her. The men are also tested by libido, masculine energy and faithfulness. Women have the capacity to liberate themselves from subjugation, even in a robotic state.
For every false move there are two excellent ones to eclipse it. This is the robot myth that should have preceded Battlestar. 11-Sep-2019
Robot fabulosity pulls you in but it's the intertwining story threads that keep you posted. 08-Sep-2019
90 Day Fiance: What Now? (2017-)
Where punishment is served with impunity. 11-Sep-2019
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way (2019-)
It's all about control. They all have dwindling assets they need to cash in before their reality becomes dire. It's scary, demented and addictive. For the burden's sake, I hope a lot of it is fake. 04-Sep-2019
Misfits are created when the understanding of being born is confounding.
Each episode incorporated a distinct flavor that elevated character development and story arc. The whole is a buoyant and succulent melange.
The writing was sharply on edge, the directors' wings were boundless and the actors (especially Z) rose to every unforgiving task.
Z's parade at finale was unexpected, deserved, joyous and brilliant. The music speaks. 01-Sep-2019
The carnival episode was a modern Hitchcock delirious delight. Zen's etch of a drug addict cuts deep. 31-Aug-2019
Etching a recognizable world and stripping Zendaya of Disney cuteness. Feels like home. 28-Aug-2019
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
I watched pretty boys struggling to exploit themselves on social media for no tangible life reward with trepidation and confusion because I thought there'd be no commonality. The pursuit consists of laidback and fellow conjured positivity with little talent to catapult the boys forward. The doc's reach is distant but youth has a way of conveying the limitations that life deposits on them. Once realization hits and catechism results, the age difference intertwines and you realize it's a lifelong struggle. It actually prompted me.
PS: The girls will never wreck if they keep fainting for "pretty boy face." 28-Aug-2019
Mexican Dynasties (2019-)
The art of ham is served on a silver platter, familial hypocrisy has a high calorie intake and favoritism is hard to digest. The adults exist in a bubble that exalts the brand and disallows their children a future comparison. The countenances and speak of the babies is where the truth lives. 24-Aug-2019
Tales of the City (2019)
It suffers from appeasement. It wants to speak for everyone which sometimes creates a whisper. The loud is that family can be found as well as borne. The mysteries don't pump the heart, it confuses gripes with wit and it doesn't break new ground. All it wants to do is represent us. It did fine with that. 29-Jun-2019
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018)
A jumbled idea. 04-May-2019
Sex Education (2019-)
Misfits auditing, recognizing, practicing and adapting. When the concept grows on you, it tugs in all the right places. 25-Apr-2019
Russian Doll (2019-)
When Pinky Tuscadero introduced it we defied it. Their equality banner states that anyone can be boring. (I can't speak unidentifiable robot and it perturbed my lover.) 10-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
