Fire Island

Happy Pride 2022! Hulu is celebrating with the premiere of “Fire Island.” This film is written by and stars Joel Kim Booster and features Bowen Yang and Margaret Cho. It’s a very funny romantic comedy that was so sweet at the end I cried. The cinematography is fantastic, the lighting team did a great job! […]

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.

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 […]

For All Mankind

For a show with Man in the title, there sure are a lot of women in charge. Ronald D. Moore (or “L. Ron Moore,” as I’ve taken to calling him due to his tendency to inspire cult-like fanbases) is not shy about strong, complicated, flawed female characters. “For All Mankind” puts women on the moon […]

It’s a Sin

It’s not just that tears were streaming down my face. I was wailing, crying, inconsolably sobbing. An endless supply of tissues wasn’t enough – still isn’t. Because even just looking at stills from “It’s a Sin” has me feeling like… you know you’ve been crying so much that your head gets stuffy and achy?
