1883

Oh, man. 1883 was so good. I couldn’t get screenshots so am using press photos, which I don’t like to do. I try to capture the moments that made me feel. And boy – there was a whole lot of feeling, and a whole lot of crying. The acting in 1883 is pretty great. Isabel […]

Peacemaker

Peacemaker is at once winsome and gruesome. James Gunn knows how to make a story serious, absurd, juvenile and deep, with a highly stylized look and fantastic score. The cinematography is notable and wonderful- I had a million screenshots and could have taken more. I enjoy television that will kill it’s darlings in a violent […]

Ordinary Joe

Fall is back! Midseason is back! Pilot season is back! Seasonal broadcast TV development is back on track! Ordinary Joe had no ordinary path to series. It was originally written in 2009 by Matt Reeves. The pilot wasn’t ordered by NBC until January 2020, in that fateful before-time, the script having been bought but not […]

Yellowjackets

My favorite quotes from Showtime’s Yellowjackets include “It’s like riding a really gross, fucked up bike” and of course, “There’s no book club?” The cast is amazing, as is the soundtrack.

Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers takes the viewer into the experience of battle: the confusion, the camaraderie, and the horror. As acclaimed as it’s been for the last twenty years, I hadn’t necessarily expected to like it. I don’t have an easy time following war stories and don’t enjoy them much. I understand now why it’s still […]

Vigil

Lauren Lyle (Outlander) brought me into Vigil, produced for BBC and now available on Peacock in the US. Luckily all episodes are out and I didn’t have to wait like when it originally aired – it’s a very intense thriller! Suranne Jones (Gentleman Jack) is phenomenal in anything she does. Besides the murder mystery, Vigil […]

Lucifer

When I heard that there was a mural of “Lucifer” painted by @wisesnail in Brooklyn to advertise the final season on Netflix, I had to go see it. I was devastated that the series was ending and wanted to mark the moment. Lucifer is a really special show. On the surface it’s a procedural with […]
