Review: Set Yourself a YuleTubing Date With THE CHRISTMAS SETUP

The Christmas Setup is a sweet movie that sometimes moves more slowly than a line of cars in a 1980s mall parking lot at Christmas-time. Personally, I have a deep wish that they had kept the same storyline of Fran Drescher as a widowed mother determined to set up her home-for-the-holidays, somewhat uptight, big-city lawyer … Continue reading Review: Set Yourself a YuleTubing Date With THE CHRISTMAS SETUP

Review: Prospects Are Good For Enjoying AN ASTROLOGICAL GUIDE FOR BROKEN HEARTS

Look, is An Astrological Guide for Broken Hearts going to win awards? Honestly, ever since Emily in Paris got nominated for an Emmy, I don’t even try to guess about what will and won’t win awards. But, my general point is that this is not prestige television. No, this is tasty-but-uncomplicated, rom-com comfort food where … Continue reading Review: Prospects Are Good For Enjoying AN ASTROLOGICAL GUIDE FOR BROKEN HEARTS

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 Card "ON THE VERGE" in pink letters with a rip through the letters. Below it says Created by Julie Delpy

Review: Sadly, ON THE VERGE is Mostly “Argh!!” & “WTF?!?” But with Some Pockets of “Okay, Interesting…”

At first blush there should be no question whether I would like On The Verge. For the love of collapsing collagen, it's a show written by and starring middle-aged women that addresses relationships, motherhood, work, and unrealized dreams! But, for large portions of the series I found most of the characters either unlikeable, overly privileged, … Continue reading Review: Sadly, ON THE VERGE is Mostly “Argh!!” & “WTF?!?” But with Some Pockets of “Okay, Interesting…”
