Community: Season 3 — a review

If you’ve already watched the first two seasons of Community, you know what to expect from this season. This has been a crazy, engaging show, one that I never watched until 2020. Most sitcoms are easy to describe. “It’s like Friends, except in LA, with only one girl and five dudes.” Or, “Think Seinfeld, if […]

Episodes: Season 5 — a review

It was the Showtime/BBC series Episodes that finally made me a Matt LeBlanc fan. Not Friends. I mean, Joey Tribbiani was okay, in a vacuous meathead himbo sort of way. And his most famous catchphrase—”How you doin’?”—remains a part of my personal repertoire. But, Joey was strictly B-team on Friends, the sidekick, the friend-of-a-friend, never […]

The show made the Moonlighting mistake of letting Nick and Jess become romantically involved, […]

New Girl: Season 1 — a review

This is not the first time I’ve watched the first season of New Girl. In fact, I know I’ve watched at least two seasons, possibly three, years ago. Then, I stopped. I’m not certain why, because I remember liking the series. More than likely, life intervened or I got sidetracked by something new and shiny […]

The Good Place: Season 1 — a review

I’ve written, more than once, that I am not a binge-watcher of television shows. The Kris Kristofferson song “The Pilgrim” contains the following lyrics: He’s a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction. Yeah, that about sums me up, I’d say. The word “hypocrite” may actually apply as well, since there’s no term more precise […]
