Critics Choice Super Awards: Lovecraft Country The Boys Lead Noms

Critics Choice Super Awards: Lovecraft Country, The Boys Lead Noms

Moonbase 8: Sad Unfunny Astronauts Express Our Sad Unfunny Times

Moonbase 8: Sad, Unfunny Astronauts Express Our Sad, Unfunny Times

Moonbase 8 is quite possibly the worst show of 2020. A useless Showtime show about useless people, it is unfunny, untrue, and lazy, but it reveals a lot more about our times than it intended to. The show stars John C. Reilly, Fred Armisen, and Tim Heidecker as a trio of reserve astronauts relegated to […]

On our scale of the best-to-worst series finales that we've seen, Showtime's 2015 series finale to Michael C. Hall-starring series Dexter has been our example of how not to end a series- essentially, our "1" on a 1-10 scale. So news that Hall, showrunner Clyde Phillips, and the cable network are reteaming for a limited […]
