What I Watched This Week: 11 June 2017

NEW SHOWS Twin Peaks – “The Return, Part 6” (B+) Poor innocent Dougie may end up being the year’s best character. We spend almost the entire episode here, and Naomi Watts gets an acting showcase, while Laura Dern gets an entrance … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 4 June 2017

NEW SHOWS Twin Peaks – “The Return, Part 5” (A-) Dale Cooper’s turn as Dougie feels a bit tragic, even though he avoided a much bigger tragedy back at the Rancho Rosa estates. I’m sure the little drips of info – … Continue reading

Netflix Picks: June 2017

BEST BET – FILM Okja – 6/28 God bless Netflix. No, really. Who else would bankroll an environmental satire/kid-creature buddy movie from Bong Joon Ho? While booed at Cannes – mostly for its “They’re killing the theatrical experience!” B.S. – … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 16 Apr 2017

NEW SHOWS Veep – “Omaha” (A-) / season premiere Covers a lot of ground in just 30 minutes, as pretty much everyone is much worse off since Selina lost her bid for re-election. My favorite catch-up was Bill (and his casual … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 9 Apr 2017

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “Baptism” (B+) / season finale A fitting finale to a season all about finding yourself. I honestly think Leif never should have been seen again after “The Yard Sale,” because he’s so annoying, and I hope they don’t … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 2 Apr 2017

NEW SHOWS Crashing – “Julie” (B+) My least favorite episode, but still quite good, as everything hits the reset button. But Pete is still so likable, even as he’s talking to Rachael Ray’s mom about blowjobs. CURRENT SHOWS The Mindy Project – “A … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 19 Mar 2017

NEW SHOWS & SPECIALS Crashing – “Parents” (A) Another sharp episode that cuts deeper than most comedies while still being wildly funny. The Mindy Project – “Mindy’s Best Friend” (A-) A solid, funny, deep (for this show) episode, featuring a … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 5 Mar 2017

NEW SHOWS The Mindy Project – “Dibs” (B) Since the show bungled the introduction of Colette’s girlfriend, it’s hard to care about her hurt feelings. But I was shocked at how much I was invested in Jeremy and Anna’s non-romance. … Continue reading
