TV: Game of Thrones S7 – (2.5/4)

TV: Game of Thrones S7 - (2.5/4) Fantasy is hard. With so many elements separated from our world we are still asked to relate and draw humanity.

TV: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air S2 - (2.5/4)Trekking along through this revisit. Not much more to say here so I'll keep it short:It's still good but not as good as season one.

TV: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air S1 – (3/4)

TV: Glow S1 – (3.5/4)

TV: Glow S1 - (3.5/4) This was a pleasant surprise. "Glow," a Netflix original series, may go down as one of their best shows yet. Jenji Kohan is showrunning, known for her success with "Orange is the New Black." She does something really special here with ensemble-storytelling. Alison Brie's Ruth Wilder is in the role … Continue reading TV: Glow S1 – (3.5/4)

TV: Friends from College S1 – (1.5/4)

TV: Friends from College S1 - (1.5/4) This was a fun little show. With some pretty funny moments and few gut-splittling funny moments. However it's about 30/70 when the comedy works. "Friends from College" strives in situational and cringe comedy. We have a cast of truly despicable characters and the comedy blooms when they're trapped … Continue reading TV: Friends from College S1 – (1.5/4)

TV: Castlevania S1 – (No Rating)

TV: Castlevania S1 - (No Rating) I'm pulling a Roger Ebert-Human Centipede reiview here and refusing to give this first season of "Castlevania" a rating. The four episode first season was too small a sample size to gauge the quality of the show entirely up to this point. I normally review by season. I do … Continue reading TV: Castlevania S1 – (No Rating)
