I guess the lead for this review is that Santa Clarita Diet has been cancelled by Netflix, and, apparently, we won’t get a Season 4. If the story were finished, I’d feel better about the cancellation. I wouldn’t feel great, because I’ve liked this series. But, I’d feel better. I like serialized story telling.

I’m just going to assume that if you didn’t want spoilers you would have avoided anything on-line that had Game of Thrones in the title or description. That’s what I’ve done, and I managed to go into the last episode of the season without knowing how it ended. Yay! Mission accomplished. Now I’ve watched the […]Read more "Game of Thrones: Season 8 — a review"
In my reviews of the previous seasons, I think I include the caveat somewhere in the body of the writing that this is not a cartoon for children. This animated series about an anthropomorphized horse struggling with depression and multiple substance abuse issues has always had a tendency to go dark. Season 3 is […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 3: “That’s Too Much, Man!” — a review"
This was the first media tie-in novel based on the hit CW television show Supernatural. It was published way back in 2007 (even though I’m reading it just now, more than a decade later), and it was written by Keith R.A. DeCandido. I am familiar with DeCandido because, like me, he is a severe […]Read more "Supernatural: Nevermore, by Keith R.A. DeCandido — a book review"
Series creator Eric Kripke stepped down as showrunner after the fifth season of Supernatural. He decided to concentrate on other things, including the television series Revolution, which I liked a lot; it was cancelled way too soon. But, this show about the monster-hunting Winchester brothers continued on. For another nine or ten years, it carried […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 6 — a review"
I’ve gone on record as a fan of the History Channel series Vikings. My love of the world created in this series, and its pantheon of larger-than-life characters, hasn’t suddenly come to an end. I’m still a fan (you can read my reviews for every season here), and I’ll be watching this series until the […]Read more "Vikings: Season 5 (Part 1) — a review"
No sophomore slump for Mrs. Maisel. Season 2 was another example of terrific television. The first season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was about how Midge Maisel’s married life fell apart and how her life as a comedian began, almost by accident. The second season takes a couple of road trips out of Manhattan. […]Read more "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2 — a review"
