I was looking back through my posts and discovered something I had forgotten. I never wrote reviews for Supergirl: Season 4 or The Flash: Season 5. I remember what happened. I did watch all the episodes of both of those seasons, growing increasingly dejected as I did so. I’ve described this before as DC-on-CW fatigue. […]Read more "Supergirl: Season 5 — a review"
Even though I have often said, and written, that looking forward to something is the secret to happiness, nostalgia—or looking back, if parallel sentence construction is your thing—also plays a key role in my never-ending pursuit of happiness. There are several new-ish entertainment offerings that scratch the nostalgia itch. Netflix’s Stranger Things, with its 1980s […]Read more "Cobra Kai: Season 2 — a review"
I’ve written reviews of the first shows of new series I’ve watched before. I recall writing separate reviews for the first and second episodes of The Orville. I wasn’t crazy about the first, but I came around by the second. Still, I generally wait until I’ve watched the whole season. There are only eight episodes […]Read more "Invincible: Season 1: Episode 1: “It’s About Time” — a review (Amazon Original)"
The series Weeds aired on premium cable channel Showtime between 2005 and 2012. This means that this review is for a series that ended about nine years ago. While it’s not uncommon for me to get around to watching a series long after it went off the air, the truth is I began watching this […]Read more "Weeds: Season 8 — a review"
You don’t have to tell me that this review is waaay late. Or that Season 7 is playing right now, as we speak. The truth is that I put the CW’s The Flash on a non-COVID-related hiatus after I watched the fifth season of the series. It’s not that I hated the season, because it […]Read more "The Flash: Season 6 — a review"
I didn’t watch the Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan. I also didn’t watch their wedding (I’m assuming it was televised). Nor did I watch Charles and Diana’s wedding, or Diana’s funeral. Or William and Kate’s wedding. None of that. Because I wasn’t interested. I don’t understand the obsession with Britain’s royal family. I don’t […]Read more "The Crown: Season 4 (Netflix) — a review"
I was first introduced to Nick Frost and Simon Pegg in a wonderful little British television series called Spaced. I’m sure I watched it through Netflix, back when I was still receiving those silver discs in the mail rather than streaming everything I watch. The show originally aired on the UK’s Channel 4 between 1999 […]Read more "Truth Seekers: Season 1 (Amazon) — a review"
Recap of my Season 1 review: I liked it a lot (and not just because of the Trek connection with Anson Mount and Colm Meaney). When I’ve read reviews for Hell on Wheels written by people who aren’t me, I see the series Deadwood referenced quite a bit. I haven’t watched that show yet, although […]Read more "Hell on Wheels: Season 2 — a review"
Some viewers hated Season 5 of The West Wing. Not me. It has been my least-favorite season of the series so far, but I gave it a report card grade of A-minus. That’s respectable. Certainly not hate. I think most of the critical backlash against the series was because of the departure of Aaron Sorkin. […]Read more "The West Wing: Season 6 — a review"
The second season of Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys—based on the celebrated graphic novel by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson—has made me thirsty (in the original sense of the word) for Fresca. It also made me wonder if Amazon and Coca-Cola weren’t somehow in collusion to drive up the sales of the carbonated grapefruit-based beverage […]Read more "The Boys: Season 2 (Amazon Prime) — a review"
