Haunting of Bly Manner (2020-)
It takes us to the same places so many times that we can figure out its outcome. I wondered if surprises would have popped more often if told in sequence. I understand that black women don't want to be maids but the commitment level for a realistic character needs to make sense. You don't wear designer clothing to clean a mansion. The mop was taken away from the maid and passed to a child and the vacuum didn't really stay on. How the fuck did she clean a mansion all by herself? Very good performances keep it chugging but the art hits the wrong part of the brain. The lesbians finally have their "Titanic." Hooray! 17-Oct-2020
S1E2. The premise is hauntingly decadent. The bullshit has been cast aside to allow the mystery to breathe. Victoria Pedretti as the caretaker of cuties doesn't stifle, always persists and treats the children to a fantasy world of security. The babies are made of sunshine overexposure and creepin' fuckery. T'Nia Miller's character is, so far, underwritten but her soliloquies are ardent. Henry Thomas is putting his superior experience to use. Before I realized it was him I thought it was Colin Firth. Good job, my boy. As soon as Miss Gugino enchanted a wedding party into partaking in a nine hour drunken haunted folk story, she had the upper hand. She slithers her words to make women uncomfortable and make men wet. It's not as complicated as the other one made itself and I trust it. 12-Oct-2020
Allah looks away when a buddy relieves another of sexual frustration. Ramy is comic bullshit revolver. 04-Aug-2020
If worshipping a peaceful philosophy turns followers into demented and confused sex maniacs maybe the parents are right. It's better to forget it.
Sister showcased in an episode dealing with how cultural history can cure an unhealthy fact with witchcraft.
Mama pulled the brakes on her episode to bring attention to how we punish the people we fight for. The pressure for them to understand us negates who they are. They don't know us. Mama brought the hope, the wreck and the smarts. 02-Aug-2020
Moving your heritage forward when the rigidity of spiritual devoutness devours the best gifts in life. It respects as much as it questions, it upsets as much you care. The laughs are far to come but land uproariously. It paints the truth and enforces it. 07-Jan-2020
Bad Education (2020)
The face of the righteous has a melting soul.
Hugh is big daddy, fulfilling a demanding feat. He teases us with his nice boy swag, making us feel comfortable, ripping layers and gnawing at his mentality. He floors like a man realizing his obsession is a sick heart aching for love of any kind.
Janney's gift is to steal acts, to be good or to be great. She is all.
Ray Romano is the grand daddy of kvetch, owning it with common sense and delivering it like a real person.
Geraldine Viswanathan displayed the smarts and determination the character needed.
The support was a menage of cultural brilliance.
Awkward, tricky and... bam!
(Society builds too much pressure in people.)
Shahs of Sunset (2012-)
I only watch sporadically because they are overly complicated and spoiled. I'm watching this season out of boredom. It is interesting to note that they've handled the "me too" moment with little awareness of what it means and a heaping amount of prejudice. The problem with "me too" is that if you're liked or needed they ("family) can make it go away. Just gang pounce on the other side without giving it one moment's consideration. 04-Mar-2020
Go Ask Alice (1973)
Diary of a teen with an addictive personality. It is nice to hear the words of tragedy being spoken by tragic and even though it enlightens, it doesn't resolve. Addictions occur the moment you can't latch on to life. It provides good details on soft parenting, physical instability, sex and pressure. The film bestows as many blessings as calamities. Griffith gives good priest, Mackenzie Phillips haunted and the Shat(ner) tries to steal the film with his blinkers. 24-Feb-2020
October Faction (2020-)
"The Americans" in the Buffyverse with its own ideas.
Twins united is a powerful concoction. He's gay with no tolerance for sweetness and of suppressed privilege. She questions why her life doesn't fulfill her essence. They both do everything to upset their parents. Their awakening untangles excitedly.
Family history keeps the mythology pressing on.
Daddy has a gun, grandma has a gun, they all have a gun but no one grips it like mama.
The show handles its business like a bullet - straight through - no bullshit - not for squeaky screamers.
"Big Bad" seems to be representing.
There are a variety of monsters, entanglements and enlightenments for an open world of writing fun stuff. 29-Jan-2020
The catastrophe of Lost has been redeemed.
Blue is a gorgeous color.
Only Jeremy Irons could snugly fit that suit or that character.
Tim Blake Nelson is trailer park satisfaction.
The greatest thing James Wolk did was strip. His accent almost cut me, it was so sharp.
Lady Trieu was grunge girl effervescence.
It completed, catapulted, respected and reinvented. Brilliant!
I'm excited and afraid. 09-Dec-2019
Acquiring empathy for a dad you hate by reliving his memories was invigorating. (Don't fuck it up!) 03-Dec-2019
Jean Smart and Regina King are glorious. Jeremy Irons is a fantastic beast. The creators name drop comic book fantasy without delivering it. Junk is created for the masses but art heightens its subject. Uncertainty makes the audience walk out. 09-Nov-2019
Please Like Me (2013-2016)
It handled mental health adroitly and it came to a poignantly devastating conclusion. I liked it...a lot. 25-Nov-2019
S3E10. The Christmas episode was a self-awareness revelation. 23-Nov-2019
S3E8. I understand its title, I celebrate how organically and flawed we appear and the icy intent is as sweet as a treat. They are years ahead of us because they are recording us as we live, not how we demanded it to be. 22-Nov-2019
Mamas bless it. 23-Oct-2019
We are discomforted because depictions of reality are. It's not the lab where Chris, Nicole and Hugh were created but it's where life lives. 19-Oct-2019
Raising Dion (2019-)
I delighted in Jason Ritter finally putting those asshole tics to use but the upgrade was for mama. No superhero is flying around her house until she says so! 22-Nov-2019
When mama discusses the mental incarceration of racism to a son that's becoming physically stronger, my negative comments became obliterated. The writers ventured to give us a modern mama willing to be sensitively honest with her child and equip him for life's challenges. Respect. 20-Oct-2019
A subject worth exploring in a culture historically evaded. It moves better when it tightens the reins but it's self awareness, interspersed soundtrack along with sprinkles of bleeding sap, drain it. 18-Oct-2019
