Another ten-episode offering from Netflix. It’s bittersweet, since the series has been cancelled. Originally, the series was supposed to end at Season 4, but the pandemic screwed up all sorts of timetables and schedules, and, if what I’ve read today is true, the fourth season was eighty-sixed entirely. I’m secretly hoping this is another Internet […]Read more "GLOW: Season 3 — a review"
I’ve already been on record saying that Season 4 of Community was my least-favorite season of the series so far. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that this was the season without Dan Harmon, who had been fired from the show he created. For some very good reasons, I feel compelled to add, but still— […]Read more "Community: Season 5 — a review"
If you liked the first season of the Netflix original, GLOW, I guarantee you’ll like this season, too.

[For the record, I insist that my decades begin on a zero, as do centuries and millenniums (millennia?)] If the […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (Part 2) — a final review"
The final eight episodes of Season 6 of Netflix’s amazing animated series BoJack Horseman are scheduled to drop on January 26, 2020. This review is for the first eight episodes of the last season. Those of you who still dismiss animated shows as kiddie fare haven’t been watching this one, which pairs anthropomorphized animals and […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (Part One) — a review"
You probably knew already that Season 6 of BoJack Horseman is the final season of this wonderfully bleak and bitter animated series which includes both human and anthropomorphized animal characters. The first half of the 16-episode season drops on Netflix in less than a week, with the second half coming early in 2020. It seems […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 5 — a review"
