    TV Review: AMC’s ‘The Night Manager’ (★★★)

    There is a lot to like about Tom Hiddleston’s 6-episode James Bond audition, despite the fact that the mini-series was off to a slow start. Hiddleston stars as the titular Night Manager, Jonathan Pine, a former Gulf War soldier working in Cairo during the final days of Hosni Mubarak’s rule in 2011. The escalating chaos […] More

    Pilot Review: Super Fun Night (★½)

    Hype much? With Rebel Wilson having the year she’s having, an icon of great laughs, ‘Super Fun Night‘ promised to be a super and fun series. Starring our Aussie girl of comedy as Kimmie Boubier, she leads Lauren Ash as Marika and Liza Lapira as Helen-Alice on a quest to get a social life, with […] More

  • TV Review: Hannibal (***½)

    If you crossed the monster of the week format of a show like The X-Files with the character development of something like In Treatment, and added a pinch of Carrie from Homeland, you might have a good approximation of what Bryan Fuller was going for in his new series Hannibal, which premieres on NBC. Taking […] More

  • House of Cards (***½)

    In trying to decide how best to review the new Netflix original series ‘House of Cards’, I had a few options to toy with. The most obvious was to simply review the pilot of this remake of a well-regarded BBC program, but that seemed short-sighted considering how the service was putting all 13 episodes of […] More

  • TV Review: Girls (***)

    I’ve been trying to watch a bit more television these days, and it seems that whenever a new show catches my interest, it’s invariable on HBO, with ‘Girls’ being no exception. Aside from AMC’s ‘Comic Book Men’, the premium channel appears to be one of the few that I go to for new programming. Next […] More

  • TV Review: Are You There, Chelsea? (*1/2)

    Are you there, Chelsea? has left me quite perturbed. I just don’t know how to feel about it. I know that I don’t like the show, I know that the jokes are weak and based primarily around sex, but I also know that given better writing material the show has potential, and can be better, […] More

  • X Factor Recap: Top 12 Performance & Results

    The X Factor has been broadcast for several weeks on FOX and last night, the Top 12 acts took the stage for the first time for America’s votes.  I waited until the LIVE shows to start tackling the recap episodes.  The show is still very solid and I stand by my three and half star […] More

  • TV Review: New Girl (***)

    It’s Zooey… I mean Jess. Zooey Deschanel plays Jess in the new fun sitcom New Girl. “Adorkable” has become the new catchphrase to describe this show and the character of Jess. And oddly enough it fits. New Girl is the story of Jess (Deschanel) a girl who just dumped her boyfriend and is trying to […] More
