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
