Reservation Dogs

Reservation Dogs is a 2021 television hit. FX and Hulu have partnered with Taika Waititi and Sterlin Harjo to produce the Native American comedy, filmed in Oklahoma and written by a team of all-indigenous writers. The show follows a group of delinquent teenagers in a rural reservation. They get into and out of trouble, trying […]

Run the World

The Starz series “Run the World” is, like the first episode’s title, phenomenal. The first season is nine 30-minute episodes that go by too quickly. There’s plenty of drama, but the comedic dialogue is fast and funny. There are too many one liners to name but one of my personal favorites is when Erika Alexander’s […]

The Late Show – with live audience

On March 12, 2020, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert went on without an audience. 460 days later, Stephen Colbert returned to The Late Show stage with a full audience. He seemed ecstatic, and to be honest, it was a contagious feeling. It felt good to see Colbert in his element – in front of […]

Frank of Ireland

I’ve been on a Irish and UK dark comedy/slapstick streak lately and I am absolutely loving it. The show “Frank of Ireland” pretty much got me from the name. It took the whole first episode to get into it but once I did I finished them all right away. (Well, I passed out after episode […]

Miranda/Call Me Kat

Call Me Kat was one of the earliest pickups of the Fall 2020 TV Development season. Originally titled “Carla,” Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik sold their take on Miranda from writer Darlene Hunt to Fox in a competitive situation. It went straight to series… and then in true Fall 2020 fashion turned up in 2021. […]

Novelty Mug Comedy

Lately I’ve been watching this sketch “LaGuardia Flight” over, and over, and over again. I’ve had to… because I edited the video as part of the sketch comedy group “Novelty Mug Comedy!” Our little YouTube page now has content, so please check it out if you get a chance. We’ve been writing together since the […]

Call My Agent

Call My Agent is a fun, fast paced dramatic satire of the entertainment industry. The main characters work together in an A-list talent agency. It’s written in French and subtitled into English, which convinced me that I speak fluent French (I do not.) The characters are genuinely lovable because of their deep flaws and deeper […]

Ted Lasso

Apple TV has as close to universal appeal as 2020 will allow in “Ted Lasso.” Fans range from the celebrities I follow on Twitter (including actual Europeans that like “football”) to my own parents. And now, me. Ted Lasso is charming, funny and unselfconciously sweet. The saccharine optimism is refreshing. It’s offset by every other […]
