I Feel Bad‘s pilot episode “Pilot” feels real good. The freshman show’s second episode, “I Get Sick of Being Needed” gets better. I Feel Bad‘s protagonist Emet, played sleekly and energetically by Sarayu Blue, is a South Asian video game creator and mom-of-three. So right out the gate, I Feel
It was always going to be difficult (perhaps impossible) to live up to the expectation and anticipation of Charles and Liza’s first time sleeping together. Younger 5×08 “The Bubble,” unsurprisingly misses the mark for me with the couple’s bedroom activities, but delivers in other firsts. Stay with me, Team Charles.
YODEL-AY-HEEHOO! Younger 5×07 “A Christmas Miracle” really is a MIRACULOUS episode! “A Christmas Miracle” is a snow flurry of my favorite things about Younger, including its ability to make a magical PG kiss just raunchy enough with the little booty grab. I am in #TeamCharles heaven! The deeply satisfying love
On the season’s penultimate episode, The Handmaid’s Tale 2×12 “Postpartum,” the narrative’s attention expands beyond June and Holly to include Eden, Emily, and Nick. It is a wise set-up as it provides some relief from the emotional hyper-focus on our protagonist, while also linking us back to the core relationships
The Handmaid’s Tale 2×11 “Holly” is a cohesive story that can function as a stand-alone film. The tale of our hero June’s journey is an Emmy-worthy AND Oscar-worthy hour of television. I continue to be awestruck, astonished, and appalled by the content on The Handmaid’s Tale each week. “Holly” raises
Younger 5×04 “The Talented Mr. Ridley” balances the salty with the sweet but is still not satisfying enough to last the two weeks until the next episode. I’m hungry for more Younger! The Sweet Diana’s attempt to re-enter the dating scene with a games night ends up really crappy. Literally. As
I have to be honest, I have been avoiding this review. The parallels between the real world and the dystopian nightmare on The Handmaid’s Tale are often uncanny. But, on The Handmaid’s Tale 2×10 “The Last Ceremony,” the content with Hannah and June is so similar to the forced separation happening
Younger has made an egregious error with Season 5: The episodes are TOO DANG SHORT! Thirty minutes isn’t nearly enough time with these fantastic characters and relationships. I DREAD seeing “Darren Star” pop up on my screen because it means I have to wait an eternity (a whole week) for more. I
After each episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, I am sure that the stunning visual and musical imagery, poetry in the form of a television episode, cannot be topped. Then I watch the next episode. The Handmaid’s Tale 2×07 “After” once again sets the standard for visual storytelling. The opening sequence
The Handmaid’s Tale 2×06 “First Blood” balances the morose and horrifying world of Gilead with the Waterford household’s flirty rebellion to create the strongest character-focused episode of the season. The examination of power and family is breathtaking as always. The explosive ending is a visual shot of cocaine: it wakes
Hope – a tiny, whispered seedling of hope – emerges from The Handmaid’s Tale 2×05 “Seeds,” in its final breaths. The episode is another stunning depiction of the impacts of oppression under a repressive theocratic regime. “Seeds,” like “Other Women,” is a more close-up and intimate study of the characters.
