NEW SHOWS Crashing – “Mulaney” (A) / series finale As a season finale, it’s perfect. As a somewhat abrupt series finale, it’s still pretty satisfying. While I’m sad the show is ending on what is clearly not its own turns, … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “The Christian Tour” (B) The stuff on the tour is great, but the break-up and subsequent roasting by a quartet of female comedians feels a little tacked on. This Is Us – “The Graduates” (B-) A … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS The Oscars (B+) After all the debacles, this hostless show made for pretty good television, moving along briskly with no segments that leave you thinking, “When is this going to be over?” (Well, except for that excruciating speech … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 17 Feb 2019

NEW SHOWS The Simpsons – “The Clown Stays in the Picture” (B+) A funny diversion episode, where we learn of Krusty’s ignominious time as a director of a sci-fi epic, during which Homer and Marge served as grunts. It’s a … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 10 Feb 2019

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “MC, Middle, Headliner” (A-) Dov Davidoff has long been this show’s secret weapon. In this episode – where his dated, misogynistic routine gets him demoted to middle act – all the resentment and bitterness from never making … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “The Secret” (A-) Another winner, even if I don’t buy into the hippie bullshit premise. Kat is such a positive force in Pete’s life that it’s been magical to watch. True Detective – “If You Have … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “The Temple Gig” (A) Another lovely start to the season. Pete finds new love at a clothing store, and they get to know each other (and each other’s bodies) over the course of one magical day. … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS True Detective “The Great War and Modern Memory” (B+) / season premiere “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” (B+) The show will never be as transporting as that first season was, when there wasn’t much on TV like it. Still, Mahershala … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 6 Jan 2019

NEW SHOWS 76th Golden Globe Awards (C) The very definition of a mixed bag. The show itself went on too long, but did have time for some great speeches (Christian Bale, Glenn Close) and some bad ones (Peter Farrelly). But … Continue reading
