I’m not surprised that I like Mrs. Maisel. Of course I knew it was a multiple Emmy-winning show before I watched the first episode, but there have been Emmy-winning shows that I didn’t particularly care for. Just like the Academy Award isn’t a guarantee that I will like a movie. No, I knew I would […]Read more "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 — a review"
It’s safe to say, considering the turbo-viewing that Supernatural has gotten from me this year, that I am a fan of the series. This program has reinvented itself, sometimes in small ways, each season. Season 5 was no exception. If you will recall, Season 4 ended with Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) inadvertently releasing Lucifer from […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 5 — a review"

I’m sure it is a perfectly good film, but it doesn’t have Hugh Jackman or Patrick Stewart in it. Mangold also directed The Wolverine, a movie I haven’t watched yet, as […]Read more "Logan — a movie review"
The second half of the fourth season of Vikings elevates the season as a whole, even though the story of Ragnar Lothbrok takes some turns here that I don’t really like. Episode 11 “The Outsider” would have come seven months after Ep. 10 back in 2016, which is why these two halves are treated […]Read more "Vikings: Season 4 (Part 2) — a review"
Confession is good for the soul, they say. I’m still not current on Phase 3 of the MCU. I haven’t watched Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (at least, not all of it) or Black Panther yet (ditto). I plan to cross those off the list this month. I also haven’t watched the two MCU […]Read more "Avengers: Infinity War — a movie review"
