What I Watched This Week: 25 Oct 2015

NEW SHOWS The Simpsons – “Treehouse of Horror XXVI” (C+) After last year’s exemplary installment of scary stories, this is a lackluster episode that doesn’t feature any truly memorable segments. It’s a representation of the series as a whole at … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 18 Oct 2015

NEW SHOWS Brooklyn Nine-Nine – “The Oolong Slayer” (A) Another winner, this time beautifully focusing on the friendship between Peralta and Holt. By both having each other’s backs, everything returns to normal for the Nine-Nine, and the best sitcom on network … Continue reading
