Review: The Netflix Series INVENTING ANNA is Kind of a Scam

Hold on. Did I just get scammed by watching the series Inventing Anna, which is about the twenty-something-year-old fake German Heiress Anna Sorokin? Because I have been waiting weeks for the series to drop, and I watched all of it, but 600 whole minutes of largely pro-conwoman propaganda, really?!? That feels like a farce. Or … Continue reading Review: The Netflix Series INVENTING ANNA is Kind of a Scam

Review: LOVE & ANARCHY (Kärlek & Anarki) is So Good That I’ve Watched it Twice…So Far

We remember you fondly, oh fortuitously-timed broken pipes and … Continue reading Review: SWEET MAGNOLIAS SEASON 2 Turns Up the Drama and the Faith, But Still Keeps the Right Balance for Hypnotic Binging

Review: SORT OF is a Totally Captivating Series—That Might Also Sort Of Be Like Cilantro

I wasn't exactly looking for a gentle Canadian dramedy with imperfect characters whose thorny and often aloof exteriors belie their deeply compassionate and complex interiors, but Sort Of is unexpected in a lot of ways. I'm thrilled I stumbled across the series, which swept me up in its complicated, charismatic, funny, and genuine world.  Sabi … Continue reading Review: SORT OF is a Totally Captivating Series—That Might Also Sort Of Be Like Cilantro
