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

Review: “Patriot” Was Not a Show I Expected to Like or Review, But Life is Full of Surprises

Please note: The last episode of Season 1 and much of Season 2 include many sequences filmed from the perspective of someone who has extremely blurry vision. There are also references to traumatic brain injuries and to people having their assistive devices and therapy dogs stolen, which, understandably, may be upsetting to watch. I wouldn't have … Continue reading Review: “Patriot” Was Not a Show I Expected to Like or Review, But Life is Full of Surprises
