Breaking Bad: Granite State

September 26, 2013 |

Breaking Bad:  Let it never be said that this show is predictable. After the final moments of the prior episode I suspected that this second-to-last episode might be almost devoid of Walter White. I thought we could spend most of the episode exploring the aftermath of Walt’s … Read More

Low Winter Sun: There Was a Girl

September 26, 2013 |

Low Winter Sun:  DISCLAIMER: This episode gets a middling rating more for my overall concerns about the series than for the actual episode itself.

This week was actually quite eventful. It began with Damon and Maya being hauled into the station … Read More

Twelve Words Typed About Tuesday’s TV: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Lucky 7, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Trophy Wife

September 25, 2013 |

I’m not going to lie. I stayed up waaaaay too late last night watching all of the television offerings in which I was interested. To make a dedicated review for all five shows would probably destroy my sleep deprived brain. … Read More

The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco

September 24, 2013 |

The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco:  I thought I was done watching these things, but the group of comedians assembled on the dais for this one piqued my interest. The fact that most of the people at the podium … Read More

Side Effects

September 24, 2013 |

Side Effects:  This is supposedly Steven Soderbergh’s last film. We’ll see about that.

So what did ol’ Sevie Sode choose to do for his “last” movie? Why, he did a modern-day Hitchcock-style psychological thriller. Instead of dealing with birds or psychotic hoteliers, this thriller is centered around … Read More

The 65th Annual Emmy Awards

September 23, 2013 |

The 65th Annual Emmy Awards:  As far as Emmy shows go, this one was neither exceptional, nor was it intolerable. Host Neil Patrick Harris did a decent job keeping things moving and his exuberance for show business translated into a non-ironic … Read More

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

September 23, 2013 |

Fast Times at Ridgemont High:  I somehow avoided being exposed to this movie throughout my entire teenage experience. I always heard rumblings about it but it never really interested me. It wasn’t till recently when I discovered the movie was written by one Mr. … Read More

Wilfred: Regrets

September 23, 2013 |

Wilfred:  Yeah, I know this finale aired a little over two weeks ago, but I only got around to watching it this weekend. There’s not much to say other than… where are they going with this secret society and magical … Read More

Boardwalk Empire: Resignation

September 20, 2013 |

Boardwalk Empire:  Looks like we’ve met our new Big Bad. Last season it was Gyp Rosetti. This year it’s Dr. Valentin Narcisse, played with a steely menace by Jeffrey Wright. His energy is almost the polar opposite of Rosetti’s. Narcisse is such a proper gentleman. … Read More

We Bought a Zoo

September 20, 2013 |

We Bought a Zoo:  I am a huge fan of Cameron Crowe. Need proof? OK, I really liked Vanilla Sky. Yup, the bad one where Tom Cruise has that screwed up face and it was… maybe all a dream? See, I don’t even … Read More
