What I Watched This Week: 26 Feb 2017

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “The Road” (A-) An improvement on the premiere, even as it’s still finding its legs. But a cocaine gag (that didn’t steal from Annie Hall) and a very true-to-character love of Jars of Clay will always … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “Artie Lange” (A-) / series premiere Like Louie, but with less existential dread. Yes, that still works. Pete Holmes has long been one of my favorite comedians, and here is material that suits his personality and … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Last Week Tonight – “Feb. 12, 2017” (A) / season premiere However long this administration lasts, it’s going to feel like agony. So thankfully John Oliver refuses to settle for cheap shots, but goes in long on Trump’s … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 13 Nov 2016

NEW SHOWS The Simpsons – “Havana Wild Weekend” (B+) Another solid travel episode, though it gets way too real in its opening minutes. Grampa heads to the VA hospital since the nursing home can’t help him. Lisa asks, “Aren’t those … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS The Mindy Project – “Concord” (B) An opportunity to get away from Danny’s wedding (which I am only disappointed we’re missing because it means no Chris Messina or Greta Gerwig) leads to a very Three’s Company plot. There’s … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 30 Oct 2016

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

What I Watched This Week: 23 Oct 2016

NEW SHOWS The Mindy Project – “Mindy Lahiri Is a Misogynist” Is Mindy truly a misogynist? Maybe not, but there is something to be said for intra-office female rivalries. The bigger question is why the show decided to casually reveal … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 16 Oct 2016

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

What I Watched This Week: 9 Oct 2016

NEW SHOWS The Mindy Project – “Nurses’ Strike” (B+) Even though it introduces a new love interest, which I’m kind of dreading, this is another consistently funny episode. Mindy is MVP of her own show again, with killer lines about … Continue reading

NEW SHOWS Poldark – “Episode 1” (B) / season premiere Watched this with my wife and in-laws. While it’s not exactly my cup of tea, it’s extremely well-executed. The wife really liked this one, but I imagine it will get … Continue reading
