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
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
Boys, The (2019-)
Shue clenches frustration devoutly, Starr chomps evil gleefully and the end punctuated surprisingly. 26-Aug-2019
Graduating superheroes to the next level...consequences. 17-Aug-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
Kevin Hart: Irresponsible (2019)
The first minutes veer unsteadily towards parental rancor and celebrity retribution. The funny sneaks in when he relaxes and unleashes the demons that perch. He presents a portrait of a man that I don't have to agree with but will lend a listen to. 20-Apr-2019
Amy Schumer: Growing (2019)
Amy returns to form by bulldozing, observing and deriding to make us laugh. 20-Apr-2019
Intelligently pondered and naturally funny. It would rather genuinely portray its aspects than coddle them. A mother to praise, a friend to boast and a sex life to dissect. Ryan O'Connell is less special and more like us. I hope he takes that as a compliment. 20-Apr-2019
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
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
Abducted In Plain Sight (2017)
The family is infuriating. It took a monster to expose the fragility and self-indulgence that exists in all families. They pat themselves for surviving it when they could have all prevented it if they weren't so glamorized by religion and horniness. Spoiler alert: when mommy, daddy and daughter describe their sexual encounters with monster they all sounded thirsty. Ridiculous. 03-Feb-2019
Honeymooners Christmas Special, The (1977)
Art that was dethroned because the husband was always threatening to send his wife to the moon. It was an idle threat, Alice stood up for herself and the moon seemed like a better alternative to the planet my mother kept landing on.
Still humble, hard working, lacerating and funny. For Adults Only. 20-Jan-2019
Orny Adams: More Than Loud (2018)
Hilarious daddy that would never spit out a child because he cares. 01-Jan-2019
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
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
