Modern Family Season 11 Episode 16 I'm Going to Miss This Review

ABC's Modern Family countdown continues and the heartbreak we've been feeling is imminent, and this episode was a good segue to start leading into what will be a final double feature next week to go out with a bang.

"Beastars": Flawed Humanity, Layered Storytelling Impresses [REVIEW]

Finally got the chance to finish off Netflix's Beastars and I have to say: major thumbs up. Initially, I was not sure where this was heading and pretty confused—the story and themes along with the character designs were a quirky combo that I needed some time getting used to at first. But once the second […]

"Motherland: Fort Salem" Gave Witches Room To Work Their Magic [REVIEW]

The second episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem is much more concise and feels more linear—not sure how to explain it. Pretty sure it might be since our main characters have probably been introduced, our story can move freely and smoothly.  Though I am still a bit confused about the way time seems to be […]

"My Hero Academia": Returns & Reveals Power Solid "Tweener" Ep [REVIEW]

This season, My Hero Academia has given us one quality episode after the other – and "Japanese Hero Bilboard Chart" keeps that momentum rolling along.

"Steven Universe": His Own Worst Enemy, Afraid to Be Himself [REVIEW]

I feel these final episodes really captured the essence of the last season without making it preachy or beating us over the head with heavy-handed messages. It had every bit the emotional impact that I was expecting, […]

"Motherland: Fort Salem" Opener Casts Promising, Flawed Spell [REVIEW]

As first episodes go, Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem did a strong job of meeting season-starting expectations. It set the series' tone and introduced us to our main characters without having to beat us over the head with their pasts. It grabbed my attention and kept me watching. By the time the hour passed, I was […]

"My Hero Academia" Review: Our Heroes "Let It Flow" at School Festival

This new vibe of offering viewers more intimate, behind-the-scenes moments appears here to stay – at least for the time being – on My Hero Academia… and I am definitely good with that. This episode was well-structured on a number of fronts and brought tears to my eyes for many reasons. From beginning to end […]

"Modern Family": Fun, Touching "Baby Steps" Towards Finale [REVIEW]

I was bracing for an emotionally tough episode of ABC's Modern Family this week… you know, with only three more episodes to go I can only assume each episode will feel like a "goodbye" of some sort. However, I was suprised that it was actually fun and got – dare, I say – quite a […]
