I’ve written these reviews of the Disney + MCU Phase 4 series slightly out of order. I watched them in the order they were released. You can read my reviews of WandaVision and the first season of Loki here, if you’d like. At present, I’m making my way through the episodes of What If .

The second season of Stargate SG-1 isn’t worse or better than its first. I realize that this doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement to you. I graded the first season a solid B. In my personal quest for self-actualization, I’ve gained some knowledge about myself. Not all of this knowledge has been flattering. Not easy […]Read more "Stargate SG-1: Season 2 — a review"
The finale of this season snuck up on me. I thought that there were at least four or five more episodes to go, when—all of a sudden—I was watching what I was told was the season finale in the eighteenth episode. I knew that the series had already been renewed for an eighth season, and […]Read more "The Flash: Season 7 — a review"
This is another one of those series that my wife watched before I did. I don’t think Sharon watched all of the episodes. She’s been known to binge-watch a show until she no longer has any interest in watching even one more episode. We followed this same pattern together while watching Orange is the New […]Read more "Flaked: Seasons 1 & 2 (Netflix) — a review"
You can’t fool me. All of this time travel and Sacred Timeline/Nexus Event stuff is just more magic disguised as incomprehensible technology. In this particular story, it doesn’t bother me overmuch, even though I’ve been honest about my semi-aversion to magic in past reviews. As I’ve said before, when it comes to swords & sorcery […]Read more "Loki: Season 1 (Disney+) — a review"
I didn’t discover the world of Hollywood Division detective Harry Bosch through my Amazon Prime membership. No, I am a fan of mystery author Michael Connelly, who created Bosch and detailed many of the events of his law enforcement career in a series of novels. I’ve read several of the novels in the Harry Bosch […]Read more "Bosch: Seasons 1 thru 3 (Amazon) — a review"
For the true collector, the announcement of a television or streaming series’s final season presents the opportunity to complete the collection, to have watched every episode of the series. While there will always be at least a tinge of sadness for anything coming to its end, there is also a certain measure of satisfaction to […]Read more "10-List: Final Seasons (that I am or will be watching)"
I can explain. Although I have previously sung the praises of television series with fewer episodes per season (the sweet spot is between ten and twelve episodes, in my opinion), the reality of this practice is that at two-episodes-per-week I manage to zip through a season pretty quickly. My original plan was to write a […]Read more "Hell on Wheels: Seasons 3 thru 5 — a review"
I am an incurable list-maker. This suggests that I am a planner and an organizer, and that doing things on impulse, on a whim, plays little role in my actions or interests. Nothing could be further from the truth. I enjoy making plans, I’ll admit. At this very moment in time, I know what television […]Read more "Workin’ Moms: Season 1 — a review"
Over three years ago, I wrote and published one of my mini-tirade pieces listing the television series I had decided to stop watching. Three of these series—Gotham, Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.—I abandoned for only a short while, returning to watch them only as their final seasons were announced. I have since watched all of […]Read more "The Blacklist: Season 6 — a review"
