Title shot for movie. "Then Came You" written as if it is skywriting against a background of blue sky.

Review: “Then Came You” Left Me Feeling Some Unexpected Feelings

I'm more conflicted about this movie than I expected to be. To be clear, Then Came You is not a particularly good movie. I was shocked to learn that the runtime was only 90 minutes because I could have sworn it went on for four lifetimes. The acting wavers between passable, wooden, and just odd. The … Continue reading Review: “Then Came You” Left Me Feeling Some Unexpected Feelings

Stadium seats from far away. Most of the seats are blue, but select ones are red to spell out Ted Lasso. Ted Lasso is just visible sitting in a seat at the bottom of the D.

Review: Let Season One of “Ted Lasso” Rope You In

The general arc of the story is formulaic enough to give you the gist (as always, that's not meant as an insult), but the costumes, the set design, and the running physical gags and humorous facial expressions … Continue reading Review: Feast Your Eyes on “Emma.”

Review: “Call My Agent” is a Beautiful Bingetopia

There should be a word for the feeling you get upon finding a series to stream that just clicks for you. A series that creates a reality you want to marinate in for as long as possible. Bingetopia? Telecstasy? Streamjoyment? Happy Streams? Probably none of those. But it is definitely the feeling I have while … Continue reading Review: “Call My Agent” is a Beautiful Bingetopia
