00:00 – 15:00 Before this episode begins, we get a “Previously on Buffy…” segment. I believe this was the first, but I could be mistaken. The title of this episode is “Angel,” and this “Previously on…” segment seems to be about Angel, in part. Go figure. The rest is about the Master and the Anointed […]Read more "\m/15-Minute Hellmouth\m/: Buffy the Vampire Slayer DeepWatch: Season 1, Episode 7: “Angel” (airdate: Monday, April 14, 1997): Part 1 of 3"
I see what you did there, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. You teased us with a new show named The Book of Boba Fett, and then it turned into another season of The Mandalorian. Maybe Season 2.5. It’s okay. I forgive you. While I found the continuing tale of Fett to be entertaining, and I […]Read more "The Book of Boba Fett: Season 1 (Disney +) — a review"
At first, I was skeptical that I would find enough common ground between a Korean-Canadian family and myself to really get into a situation comedy about a culture and country different than my own. I am an unrepentant Anglo- and Canuck-o-Phile. I’ve enjoyed many Canadian actors and comedians, and Canadian television ranging from The Kids […]Read more "Kim’s Convenience: a series review"
30:01 – The End The last time we were with our favorite students at Sunnydale High School, Buffy Summers had been stricken with a bloodstone vengeance spell that is going to kill her in two or three hours (according to Giles). Amy Madison, an old friend of Willow’s who wanted to get on the cheerleading […]Read more "\m/15-Minute Hellmouth\m/: Buffy the Vampire Slayer DeepWatch: Season 1, Episode 3: “Witch” (airdate: Monday, March 17, 1997): Part 3 of 3"
The second season of Stargate SG-1 isn’t worse or better than its first. I realize that this doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement to you. I graded the first season a solid B. In my personal quest for self-actualization, I’ve gained some knowledge about myself. Not all of this knowledge has been flattering. Not easy […]Read more "Stargate SG-1: Season 2 — a review"
The finale of this season snuck up on me. I thought that there were at least four or five more episodes to go, when—all of a sudden—I was watching what I was told was the season finale in the eighteenth episode. I knew that the series had already been renewed for an eighth season, and […]Read more "The Flash: Season 7 — a review"
Sometimes I don’t express my feelings as well as I want. Sometimes I don’t even know my own feelings about a television series (or whatever entertainment option I’m using to kill time) unless I think about it for a while. With most television series, I experience a mixed reaction. All shows have their good and […]Read more "The West Wing: Season 3 — a review"
My best friend, from junior high school all the way through four years of undergraduate studies, was a great guy named Jim. He was wicked smart and off-the-wall in all the good best-friend ways. Our bond was always a strong one. He was the best man in my wedding (well, my first one, at any […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 11 — a review"
I almost didn’t watch Pennyworth. You want reasons? Well . . . I knew it was developed by Bruno Heller, the British gentleman who also created the show Gotham for FOX. It’s not fair to let that sentence stand alone like that. It makes it sound like I didn’t like Gotham, which is not wholly […]Read more "Pennyworth: Season 1 — a review"
When I saw this series on Netflix, I thought I had never watched an episode before. As it turns out, I had watched one of them, maybe one-and-a-half. It is most likely that it was on my television screen and I was doing something else while it was on, but the feeling of deja vu […]Read more "I’m Sorry: Season 1 — a review"
