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.

Review: Let Season One of “Ted Lasso” Rope You In

(My insincerest apologies for the pun in the title.) Talking about the show Ted Lasso makes me want to speak in clichés. Big-hearted and optimistic! Full of charm! Root for the underdog! Teamwork makes the dream work! It's not about who wins or loses! Okay, that's about enough of that. But the show really does … Continue reading Review: Let Season One of “Ted Lasso” Rope You In

Review: “Call My Agent” is a Beautiful Bingetopia

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
