    TV Review: CBS’s ‘The Neighborhood’ Tries to Make Racial Tensions Funny and Fails

    CBS comedy “The Neighborhood” is a complete contradiction. On one hand, it is very forward thinking in its concept. A comedy that addresses race relations — that sounds like a cultural home run.

    Film Review #2: The Big Short (★★★)

    In some ways, I truly think that only a filmmaker with a background in comedy could have made The Big Short work like it does.
