NEW SHOWS The Mindy Project – “Leland Breakfast Is the Miracle Worker” (A-) The best episode of Season Five yet, even though it’s utterly ridiculous. Jack Davenport (the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) is stupendous as the egotistical British thespian who … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS The Simpsons – “Treehouse of Horror XXVII” (B+) Not a weak segment in the bunch, which is extremely rare for any of their Halloween specials, let alone one this late in the game. The Hunger Games/Mad Max: Fury … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS The Night Of – “Samson and Delilah” (B+) The show slides into its comfort zone as a more artful courtroom drama/prison horror show as the trial begins. And after last week letting the audience question if maybe Nas … Continue reading
