Maybe I have a flair for the dramatic. I’ve never thought of myself that way, but it could be true. I walked away from AMC’s The Walking Dead at the conclusion of Season 8. Not for one major reason, but for a legion of little ones. Some people would have been within their rights to […]Read more "The Walking Dead: Season 9 — a review"
Am I late to the party that is American Horror Story? Sure I am. I’m not sure why, though. I am American. I consider myself to be a fan of horror fiction. Maybe not a fanatic, but certainly a fan. I was aware that there was a popular thing known as American Horror Story. I […]Read more "American Horror Story: Season 1: Murder House"
I haven’t kept it a secret that my enjoyment of the series Vikings went into a steep decline after the deaths of the former monk Aethelstan and über-Viking Ragnar Lothbrok. They, along with shield-maiden Lagertha, were the heart of this story for me. Lagertha is still around in Season 6 (at least for a while), […]Read more "Vikings: Season 6 — a review"
As soon as I watched the first episode of this series, “What If . . . Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” I knew that I was going to like it. Although the movie Iron Man was the official kickoff of the MCU, it was the first Captain America movie that really set the tone […]Read more "What If …?: Season 1 (Disney +) — a review"
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 . […]Read more "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: Season 1 (Disney +) — a review"
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"
