Lethal Weapon: Season 1

Lethal Weapon: Season 1

| September 19, 2017

I’ve become as enamored as anyone else with this trend of turning a movie or movie series into a television series.  Fargo is terrific, Hannibal is amazing, West World isn’t really my cup of tea but it’s obviously very popular.  When I heard they were turning Lethal Weapon into a series, like many my first […]

The Big Bang Theory: Season 10

The Big Bang Theory: Season 10

| September 17, 2017

Let’s pause for a second and explore the fact that I’ve seen every episode of The Big Bang Theory.  It’s difficult to explain because I recognize that the show is deeply flawed in every way.  The characters are middling, the storylines are predictable sitcom fodder, and its portrayal of nerd culture is insulting to anyone […]

HBO’s Crashing

| August 1, 2017

I’ve been a huge fan of Pete Holmes for many years now.  While he was hosting The Pete Holmes Show, I would often catch the various sketches he would put out on youtube where he plays Batman or Professor X, or a fight promoter in the Street Fighter universe.  His Batman vs. Superman sketch is […]

Ice: Season One

Ice: Season One

| May 18, 2017

I know what you’re thinking.  How can an AT&T original series be anything but amazing?  Or maybe you’re thinking that you didn’t know AT&T made original programming.  I sure didn’t know.  It raises a lot of questions for me in terms of where this airs?  On AT&T DVR boxes exclusively?  Has anyone ever seen this […]

Animal Kingdom: Season 1

When Joshua’s (Finn Cole) mother dies of a drug overdose, his grandmother, Smurf (Ellen Barkin; Ocean’s 13), takes him in and wastes no time getting him involved in the family business: bank heists.  Josh’s uncles – Baz (Scott Speedman; Underworld), Pope (Shawn Hatosy; Alpha Dog), Craig (Ben Robson), and Deran (Jake Weary) – at their […]

Two soldiers accused of a horrible crime in Vietnam return home to their families, but have trouble finding work due to the rumors surrounding their time in the war.  Mac (Logan Marshall-Green) and Arthur (Jamie Hector), after weeks of struggling to pay bills, are approached by a mysterious government organization that offers to pay them […]

Vice Principals: Season 1

Vice Principals: Season 1

| January 31, 2017

When I watched the first episode of Vice Principals, I considered just stopping and basing my rather scathing review on that alone.  Thankfully, I didn’t. The series is about two Vice Principals at a high school somewhere in a nameless southwestern town (my best guess).  Neal Gamby (Danny McBride; Eastbound & Down) is a hard-nosed, […]

Bones: Season 11

Bones: Season 11

| January 25, 2017

I used to watch Bones in its first season.  Being a fan of David Boreanaz on Angel and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, I wanted to see what else he could do and his role here as Booth, a charming FBI agent was a nice contrast to the brooding, tormented vampire Angel, while not being as […]

Banshee: The Final Season

Banshee: The Final Season

| October 5, 2016

We hardly knew ye, Banshee – gone in only 4 short seasons.  I also reviewed season 3 of this series for filmmonthly having not seen the first two seasons, but found it incredibly easy to catch up on what was going on.  It was as if the creators knew no one was watching and had […]
