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
Gidget's Summer Reunion (1985)
Little girl feminist revamp. They don't exhibit likeness to any of the original characters but nostalgia is intact. Men prevailed short shorts, everyone oozed good health and greater hair and the environment exuded flexibility. 27-Feb-2019
Dating #NoFilter (2019-)
The dates are as tacky as promised and observant wit is always a welcome. 26-Jan-2019
Temptation Island (2019-)
The temptation is mighty man boobs. 21-Jan-2019
Surviving R. Kelly (2019)
I survived his art when it was pleasant and turned away when the man became objectionable. The series pounds on its subject with no perception to objectify him and I agreed.
He may sound liking he's singing to angels but they are fallen. 13-Jan-2019
Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition (2019)
Exploitation of the worst stereotype. I'm out. 04-Jan-2019
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
Selling Jets (2015-)
The art of the slippery salesman is lauded. The entitled humbly pretend it's a necessity as they validate that they are the biggest pillagers of the environment. 28-Nov-2018
Island Hunter (2017-)
I watch sporadically to soak up relaxing panorama. I recorded the Puerto Rico episode to bask in memories and cherish my culture. We eat sandy melts, empty the streets and our favorite spice is rosemary? It was nice to see a sumptuous mofongo, platanos and such but the primaries (rice, bean, pasteles, relleno de papa, alcapurrias, empanadas) were mute. The island is being terraformed for the elite and we are being erased like the food I just mentioned.
I didn't need to see Liesel Hlista food taste. She approached many of the meals with dread. I wish someone would've tickled her off camera so we could get an almost honest reaction. 23-Nov-2018
