Castlevania Review Season 3 A Dream Binge Watch for Moody Goth Teens

Castlevania season 3 is now on Netflix for at least a month. It's hugely popular, and not hard to see why. As ever, it's violent, bloody, gory and full of snarky wisecracks with some Gnosticism and moral ambiguity thrown in. It's a perfect show for moody Goths and angry teens – even adults who are […]

The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 15 The Tower Spoiler Review

Like dozens of other productions across the pop culture landscape, AMC's The Walking Dead found itself in a tough situation heading into its tenth season finale. Originally, Beta's (Ryan Hurst) final move against our heroes was meant to take place on April 12 with "A Certain Doom" which means this week's episode "The Tower" was […]

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. It starts giving us a look into what the future holds in store without having to […]

Tournament of Champions Season 1 Episode 5 Champion Is Crowned Review

A very exciting finale of Food Network's Tournament of Champions, where the randomizer proved a brutal punisher by pairing some truly unconventional items together. The competition started with ten men and six women, and the best-of-the-best remained to go head-to-head. For the West Coast, we had Brooke Williamson vs Antonia Lofaso; and for the East […]

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" Fueled By Funny, Heartfelt Family Affair [REVIEW]

NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine offers up some important life lessons for viewers this week, as spring is in the air with Love, babies, and family at the center of a very endearing and comical episode. There is Terry (Terry Crews) playing the flute, and Holt (Andre Braugher) the Whiplash-ian teacher there to humiliate him to help […]

"Tiger King" Review: Wild Ride Full of Lyin' & Tigers & Flair, Oh Yes

Tiger King dropped on Netflix on March 20, and became an instant sensation. The memes, the Facebook groups, all of it made one thing clear: this needed to be watched. And boy did I. It's incredibly easy to binge-watch this entire 7 episode series in a day. Each episode is roughly 40 minutes long, making […]

"One Man, Two Guvnors" Review: Streaming, Pleasing James Corden Farce

The National Theatre is a British institution that stages some of the largest theatrical productions in the country. They also screen some productions in movie theatres later all over the world. Now they're offering a free stream of a play every week during the pandemic – the first this week is the 2011 production One […]

Prodigal Son -- EP 118 -- "Scheherazade"

"Prodigal Son" Spins Taut, Twisted Tale with "Scheherazade" [REVIEW]

FOX's Prodigal Son offered viewers intricate plots and subplots that definitely require an encore revisit. "Scheherazade" delivered murder, intrigue, manipulation, and an interesting twist that quickly engaged a new character – and even looped Jessica (Bellamy Young) in creating a lovely triangle of jealousy. Dr. Whitly (Michael Sheen) got to play "doting involved father" – […]

"Wild": Hampstead Theatre Streams Edward Snowden Play [REVIEW]

The Hampstead Theatre is a cozy little venue up in North London, well away from the West End. It sits in a cozy residential neighbourhood that's practically a little town in itself. The theatre stages small and intimate plays by many of the biggest playwrights in the U.K. The free play this week is Wild, […]

"Tournament of Champions" Cooks Up 3 Servings of "Girl Power" [REVIEW]

Let's give it up to the ladies on this week's edition of Food Network's Tournament of Champions, as they wiped their mixing bowls clean with the other contestants. So maybe I'm being a little "girl power" subjective here. The star chefs really stepped it up this week and showed the "new kids on the block" […]

WWE RAW

WWE RAW "Go-Home" Ep Provides Strong "WrestleMania 36" Hype [REVIEW]

It's hard to believe that WWE's WrestleMania 36 is this weekend. So much has happened over the past few weeks that it's frankly easy to forget that the biggest WWE show of the year is this weekend. So needless to say, I was curious to see what we would get from this week's "go-home" edition […]

"iHeart Living Room Concert for America": Intimate & Imaginative Affair

Leave it to FOX and iHeart to get creative in this time of need and give everyone a little bit of cheer – and artists a bit of a creative outreach that's not just the internet – with iHeart Living Room Concert for America. Hosted by Sir Elton John, loads of singers and a few […]

"Westworld" Season 3 "The Absence of Field" Was Worth The Wait [REVIEW]

Welcome back to Westworld – err… figuartively speaking, not talking about the actual park. Because HBO's pretty much burned to the ground by now. This week's episode is a cerebral journey through the near-future and an exploration of self as several characters seek the answer to the question, "Who am I?". We were given a […]

"The Walking Dead": Intense Ep Punctuated By New "Royalty" [REVIEW]

You don't have to be a "deep scholar" of AMC's The Walking Dead to know that we've had a heavy and emotional one-two punch combo to our collective "feels" over the past few weeks – and no, it has nothing to do with the coronavirus-related delays impacting every aspect of the Walking Dead universe. After […]

"The Masked Singer" Season 3: Group C Sees T-Rex Go Extinct [REVIEW]

FOX's The Masked Singer rounded out Group C finalists and the "Super Nine" cast is officially set.  While Season 3 has had a few ups and downs, the last group accurately whittled down the cast according to talent. The best singers and performers are sticking around – and we have a solid hunch about each […]

"Feel Good": Netflix Dramedy Lacking in Drama, Comedy

Feel Good is the latest British comedy series on Channel Four and Netflix hyped as another Fleabag. It features Canadian stand-up comedienne Mae Martin in a quasi-autobiographical story about a stand-up comedienne starting a new romance with a woman while spiraling in her drug addiction. For all the reviews that call it a romantic comedy, […]

"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. It was interesting to see how they are finally trying to get things back around to superhero action again. This episode proved much more of a balance between slice-of-life anime […]
