Title SEX EDUCATION in red letters against a background of trees and sky with Otis's red and white house nestled in the trees just below the words.

Review: Read Why SEX EDUCATION S3 is Perhaps the Best Season Yet

Perhaps THE most important thing to know about season 3 of Sex Education? Otis's (Asa Butterfield) moustache doesn't stick around for more than an episode. And thank goodness for that; my spirit could not have borne more of that lifeless lip-caterpillar. Why do wispy moustaches often look so creepy? That's rhetorical. Only our guts know … Continue reading Review: Read Why SEX EDUCATION S3 is Perhaps the Best Season Yet

Review: THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS Uses a Zany Premise to Talk About Universal Topics–And Succeeds Beautifully!!

I'm sorry. Why is this show not getting more exposure? The Unusual Suspects—an Australian caper-heist-dramedy about women—stayed on my Hulu homepage juuuust long enough for me to binge all four episodes, and then—POOF—it disappeared into the crowded back alleys of streaming content. Even reviews of the series are few and far between. But that’s why … Continue reading Review: THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS Uses a Zany Premise to Talk About Universal Topics–And Succeeds Beautifully!!

Title for VALERIA. Valeria is written in light purple cursive. The background is a darker purple. There is a manual typewriter with a piece of pizza sticking out, a desk lamp, a cup with pencils, a car running into some scrabble tiles, and behind that a plastic mini-blind.

Review: VALERIA is Worth Watching for the Plot and the GBFs

Review: LOVE, VICTOR Season 1 (Probably) Algorithmically Guaranteed To Break A Streaming Funk

Friends, a couple of months ago this show pulled me out of a total streaming funk. Oh, sure I have a long list of promising movies and shows, but everything I started watching made my eyeballs roll and my brain drift. I just couldn't settle, and within five minutes I'd start looking for something new. … Continue reading Review: LOVE, VICTOR Season 1 (Probably) Algorithmically Guaranteed To Break A Streaming Funk

Review: NEVER HAVE I EVER Season 2—The Good, The Not-As-Good, The Genetically Blessed

You can find my review of the first season of Never Have I Ever here. Ever since the (somewhat disappointing) final kiss of the first season of Never Have I Ever, I've been waiting not-so-patiently for the second season of this delightful teen rom-com series. The first season was filled with grief, loss, humor, and … Continue reading Review: NEVER HAVE I EVER Season 2—The Good, The Not-As-Good, The Genetically Blessed
