2:00:00 – THE END This final 15-Minute Force chapter of Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones weighs in at just slightly over the quarter-hour mark. My DVD version officially ends at 2:22:20. But, the credits begin rolling at just under the 16-minute mark. 16-Minute Sith, maybe? I’m working on it… We begin where […]Read more "Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Nine: 1,2,3,4…I Declare a Clone War!"
Goodbye, Tetch virus. Hello, Gotham Season 4. There were plenty of things to like in the third season. I liked the whole Mad Hatter and Captain Barnes/Executioner stuff. But, I did feel that the season seemed to lag a bit in the middle, and almost lost me as a viewer. But, I’ve already written about […]Read more "Gotham: Season 4: Episode 4.1 “A Dark Knight: Pax Peguina” — a review"

I can love a character without liking a character. While watching the second season of Transparent, it occurred to me that I didn’t really like any of the characters on this show. Maybe that’s a little harsh. I like Raquel the Rabbi, who is pregnant with Josh Pfefferman’s child during this season. And, I kinda […]Read more "Transparent: Season 2: a review"
1:45:01 – 2:00:00 As this chapter of the 15-Minute Force opens, Anakin and Padme are being led to giant columns in the Geonosian arena to be chained up for execution alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin tells Obi-Wan that they transmitted his message to Coruscant (while we notice Padme removing some sort of lock-picking tool from the […]Read more "Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Eight: We Snatch Defeat From The Jaws of Victory Several Times"
After reading dozens of reviews of “Old Wounds,” the pilot episode of Fox’s The Orville, I revisited my own review. I had been afraid that I had been too harsh. Compared to many that I read, my review was a glowing one. I hope that MacFarlane and his cast don’t read the reviews. Nothing breeds […]Read more "The Orville Revisited: Episode 1.2 “Command Performance”"
