Big Stars Bring Big Performances to “Big Little Lies”

There is little doubting the sizzle and spark on screen when watching “Big Little Lies.” The HBO miniseries, based on the best-selling novel by Liane Moriarty, is the latest television production to wheel in a helping dose of star power. Perhaps, as with shows like “House of Cards” or “True Detective,” that star power will […]

“Legion” Obliterates the TV Superhero Mold

FX’s “Legion” is a marvel of modern television. The series is technically a comic-book show and part of the “X-Men” canon but it never feels that way. It’s almost as if creator Noah Hawley, who also helmed the TV adaptation of “Fargo,” took every blueprint we come to think of in a superhero show and […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ – Season 1

Minor Spoiler Warning for the first season of “Santa Clarita Diet.” When I first heard about the new Netflix Original Series, titled “Santa Clarita Diet,” my first thought was that the streaming service was adding a trendy cooking show to its impressive roster. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Never could I have imagined that […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Sherlock’ – ‘The Final Problem’

*This review contains spoilers for the episode.* Last week I mentioned two things regarding “Sherlock” season four: I said that the show is truly wonderful when it returns to the mystery-solving theme as its front and center (like in “The Lying Detective”), and that this week’s episode, “The Final Problem,” would probably be the last […]

TV REVIEW: ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ – Season 1

Since its debut in 1999, Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” has been known for being a children’s series that didn’t do happy endings. The popular book series follows three young siblings whose parents die in a fire and are subsequently placed in the care of one unfortunate or unsavory guardian after another, all while being […]

Cosplay, Panels and Deadly Games: It’s Time for Ichibancon!

Once again I spent my New Year with a bunch of weird people. Fortunately I’m not talking about my family this time, or even my roommates. As I sat in a crowded room discussing “Detective Conan,” the countdown began. Negan from “The Walking Dead” was the loudest, along with the Barbarian Powerpuff Girl and the […]

TV REVIEW: ‘The Young Pope’

You aren’t ready for “The Young Pope.” I repeat, you are NOT ready for “The Young Pope.” Why? Because this show is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Perhaps if you are familiar with the work of creator/director Paolo Sorrentino–his movie “The Great Beauty” won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar back in 2014–you’ll know what […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Sherlock’ – ‘The Lying Detective’

*This review contains spoilers for the episode.* It just keeps coming up, both in the books and the screen: Watson sees, but does not observe. To him, a stain on a jacket is dismissed as just a stain or goes unnoticed. To the great Sherlock Holmes, of course, it’s one piece of evidence that helps build a […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Sherlock’- ‘The Six Thatchers’

*This review contains spoilers for the episode* “Friends? Well, he only has the one.” Shortly before the end of Alan Cumming’s otherwise charming introduction to the PBS airing of “Sherlock,” he lets that little sentence drop, complete with a mocking smile. It suits the moment—honest, affectionate, and a little disappointing. The series spent considerable time in the […]

TV REVIEW: ‘The OA’ – Season 1

Minor Spoiler Warning for the first season of “The OA.” What can I say about Netflix’s newest Original Series that doesn’t give away too much? Simply put, any real discussion about the plot, characters and storylines would detract from a new viewer’s experience. This is a series that one must watch with very little prior […]
