Olivia, in an off the shoulder form fitting white dress, stands in profile on the red carpet as she cradles Antonio's face in her hands. He is wearing black pants, a white button down, and his blue Valet vest. He's looking over his shoulder so that the white VALET letters are clearly visible. Behind them is a red rope cordoning off the reporters with flashing cameras. Above it says EUGENIO DERBEZ SAMARA WEAVING HUHLU THE VALET: NEVER JUDGE A COUPLE BY THEIR COVER

Review: THE VALET (2022) Has Comedy, Chisme, and Quite A Bit of Commentary

You can trust that people are going to get all excited about how The Valet "breaks the rom-com mold" and "doesn't use the same old rom-com tropes," and is therefore just so much better and smarter and funnier.

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!!

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.
