Younger returns for Season 6 on June 12th at 10/9c on TV Land and we could not be more excited! For any of you who are living in a land of foolishness and aren’t yet watching the fun and flirty comedy, we’ve put together a countdown list of the topRead More →

In real life, traumatic events blow up our lives, twist them inside out, and light them on fire. Traumatic moments are so horrifying and destructive that our bodies will often erase our memory of it or disassociate and let us escape the moment to protect us. But on TV, traumaticRead More →

2018 is solidly in the rearview mirror. Honestly, hallelujah! Now, from the safety of 2019, we can look back at those TV moments from 2018 that grabbed hold of our feels and cruelly twisted them until they bled. Beware of serious spoilers as we take you on this weeping journeyRead More →

Finally, I Feel Bad gives us a good episode! The freshman show reverts back to what worked in the pilot episode and even extends it a bit through the smart use of Lily and David as key characters. I Feel Bad 1×08 “I Miss Important Moments,” resuscitates a show I wasRead More →

At this point I Feel Bad is a joke. Not the funny kind that brings joy to viewers. The kind that leaves me shaking my head in frustration over what could have been. I Feel Bad 1×06 “I’m A Massive Hypocrite” covers well-trodden comedic territory with a stale perspective thatRead More →

I am legitimately sorry to say it, but I Feel Bad just got worse. Any show with the star power and talent of Jane Seymour, Debra Jo Rupp, AND Anna Maria Horsford at their disposal that wastes it on nerd bros does not deserve our respect! These actors are masters ofRead More →

I Feel Bad 1×03 “I Lie to My Kids” has little kernels of good comedy and writing, but right now, it is just BAD. The biggest mistake the show makes is continuing to emphasize the nerd bros, instead of Emet, her parents and her daughter Lily. I’ll go into theRead More →

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 FeelRead More →

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.Read More →

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 loveRead More →

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 relationshipsRead More →

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” raisesRead More →

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. AsRead More →

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 happeningRead More →

Younger 5×03 “The End of the Tour” takes a pink highlighter and rests it on my most well-worn passages until it messily bleeds all over the words, then it rips out pages from my final chapters and crumples them up, tossing them lonely into the bin. This episode messes meRead More →

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 sequenceRead More →

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.Read More →

Just when I think I have learned the outer bounds of torture, The Handmaid’s Tale 2×04 “Other Women” steps in to remind me that when it comes to suffering, the sky is the limit. “Other Women” zooms in on June’s, nay, Offred’s perspective in the aftermath of her capture andRead More →
