All things come to an end, and it looks like the fourth season of Transparent will be the last I watch of the show. I haven’t read anything about it recently, so I can’t say whether the series will continue without Jeffrey Tambour, who quit the show after being accused of sexual harassment by […]Read more "Transparent: Season 4 – a review and a requiem"
02:00:01 – 02:13:49 Chapter Nine of the Rogue Edition of the 15-Minute Force isn’t even 15 minutes in length. But, the movie isn’t over yet as the chapter opens. To recap: many of our Rogue One players have already died, including Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, and K-2SO. Imperial Director Orson Krennic is lying, shot, […]Read more "Rogue One: a Star Wars story (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Nine: The Ending Kinda Sucks (or: Here’s the Deal with the Bothans)"
I’ve wanted to watch Spider-Man: Homecoming even before it came out in the theaters, back when Spider-Man was just making a cameo appearance in Captain America: Civil War. I almost saw it in the theater, but on the day I intended to see it, my granddaughter Taylee talked me into watching Wonder Woman with […]Read more "Spider-Man: Homecoming – a belated review"
When I first started watching The Gifted, I was prepared to hate it. In fact, if I’m honest with you (and I always am), I think I wanted to hate it. I had convinced myself that I didn’t need more of the Bryan Singer-version of mutants presented as a metaphor for bigotry and persecution […]Read more "The Gifted: Season One – a review"

Black Mirror is a Twilight Zone-esque anthology […]Read more "Black Mirror: Season 4 — a review"
“Best of Both Worlds” will always be a special TNG story for me. I know, it’s a two-parter that ended the series’ third season on a dramatic cliffhanger and started off the fourth with a bang, and multitudes of Trekkies hold these episodes in high regard. I’m not saying I’m special. But, “Both Worlds” […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: TNG: Episodes 3.26 and 4.1 “Best of Both Worlds, Parts 1 and 2” – a review"
01:45:01 – 2:00:00 Seconds after Chapter Eight of the Rogue Edition of 15-Minute Force begins, we see that Rebel pilot designated Red Five is being swarmed by TIE-fighters and is in trouble very reminiscent of A New Hope. The shot of the Imperial pilot, in his impressive black armor and helmet, using a targeting […]Read more "Rogue One: a Star Wars story (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Eight: In Which Many Non-Bothans Die…"
