The Romanoffs (Spoiler-Free) Pre-Release Review

When the unsurprisingly vague trailer for Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men follow-up The Romanoffs dropped this past summer, it made viewers wonder just what, exactly, the anthology series would be about. After watching the first three episodes released for critics (of eight total), I’m still wondering. While critics were presented with the typical Weiner list of […]

Murphy Brown Review (Episodes 1 & 2)

In an already-politicized world of “fake news,” where does one of the original biting comedies about Washington fit in? That’s the question viewers face as CBS relaunches Murphy Brown (9:30 Eastern/8:30 Central) on Thursday in a Donald Trump world. For 288 episodes in the late 1980s to late 1990s, the show parodied, but also advocated, […]

Manifest-Premiere Review (Spoiler Free)

All things work together for good. That seems to be the mantra, repeated multiple times, by characters in the pilot of NBC’s new drama Manifest, and that slightly edited biblical line seems to resonate for only so long before viewers are forced to wonder: whose definition of good? And, perhaps more importantly, will the show […]

Big Brother Week 12 Review (Warning-Spoilers!)

Just when you thought the show would forever coast along and Level Six would “win out” until the end, Big Brother finally got interesting. But it’s likely a case of too little, too late. While it wasn’t really the result of any strategy (because the only outsider left won—it wasn’t a coup or blindside or […]

Finding an Athlete Who is Already Lost

How often do we cheer the athletes but look away when the stars crumble? There is a famous poem by John Updike called “Ex-Basketball Player,” a cautionary tale about a famous star who grew too old and “never learned a trade” and ends up spending his time playing pinball and working at a gas station, […]

Big Brother Week 9 Review (Warning-Spoilers!)

There’s something to be said about those who can laugh about their own (rather) stupid mistakes. But that something is also probably not “You are Big Brother Season 20 winner!” After his incompetent reign last week in the BB House when he sent his own ally home and made an idiotic alliance which, of course, […]

Big Brother Week 8 Review (Warning-Spoilers!)

Zingbot, the bitterly sardonic robot that isn’t afraid to tell the houseguests what he (or producers…or America) thinks about them is not known for understatement. But telling Faysal (Fessy) “I was surprised to hear you were a part-time teacher, because you are a full-time moron! Every child left behind! Zing!” and have that still be […]

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (Spoiler-Free) Review

I’m not a big fan of action movies. I love a good spy thriller, but I can’t stand a movie that is just about explosions for the sake of explosions. I want a plot that moves and makes sense. Most of all, though, I want compelling and motivated characters. Without them, well, I end up […]

The Last Sharknado Review

Forget Sharknado, Ian Ziering said there could be a 90210 Reunion!! This isn’t the buzz SyFy wants viewers to care about as they watch or contemplate watching the last and final Pop Culture phenomena known as “Movies that start with Shark and end with Nado,” but since SyFy ignored our press request for more info […]
