Television

They say TV will rot your brain. Mr. Hipster does his best to prove them right.

Mindhunter Season One

Mindhunter: Season 1

I’m not gonna lie, Mindhunter started off rough. So rough that Ms. Hipster bailed after episode one. The dialog felt stilted and the performances completely…

Search Party Season 2

Search Party: Season 2

Nobody loves to see millennials get their comeuppance more than me. Search Party season one was about a group of these wonderful young people flitting…

Top of the Lake: China Girl

Top of the Lake: China Girl

I watched the original Top of the Lake when it came out back in 2013. The title made sense, as the town in the show…

Snowfall: Season 1

I came of age during the crack epidemic in Los Angeles. I had very little understanding of the socioeconomic and cultural impact the drug had…

Sneaky Pete

Sneaky Pete: Season 1

I first watched Sneaky Pete when it was one of Amazon’s pilots. It had some potential, but felt way too traditional and safe. Some of…

The Lowe Files: Season 1

I’m honestly not sure who asked for some show called The Lowe Files. I’m not sure who asked for this show called The Lowe Files….

GLOW Season 1

GLOW: Season 1

The sad thing is I actually remember when G.L.O.W. was a thing. Granted, I can’t remember the specifics (it was 1986 after all), but I…

Comrade Detective Season 1

Comrade Detective: Season 1

Comrade Detective is just as weird as you imagine it might be. Posed as a lost Romanian cop show from the eighties (before the fall…

Ozark Season 1

Ozark: Season 1

When I first saw there was a series entitled Ozark, my first reaction was, “How is there possibly a series starring Jason Bateman and Laura…

Friends From College

Friends From College: Season 1

The title says it all. This is a show about a group of friends from college. There’s the core group and then the creators can…

Hinterland

Hinterland: Seasons 1 & 2

Wales, my fake homeland. What can I do other than to thank Grandpa Hipster for giving me this fake Welsh name instead of the ugly…

Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies

I understand that this was book? Well, I didn’t read it. I also didn’t read The Girl On the Train, Gone Girl, or The Girl with the…

Legion - Season 1

Legion: Season 1

Legion is apparently more Marvel superhero shit. And, as the two of you who have read my site know, I generally don’t like superhero shit….

The Kettering Incident

The Kettering Incident: Season 1

This name of this series, The Kettering Incident, is somehow very apropos of the series itself. It’s somewhat stiff, somewhat foreign-sounding and a whole lot confusing….

The Good Place

The Good Place: Season 1

It seems like it’s been a million years since I’ve watched a major-network sitcom. Ok, there is one other on my DVR schedule, but New…

The OA: Season 1

Damn I’m a sucker for these types of series. Though I guess a ton of people are, otherwise they wouldn’t keep making these Lost-like shows…

Search Party

Search Party: Season 1

I get why they called this show Search Party. I mean, it sums up the plot in two easy words. But it doesn’t really define…

Goliath

Goliath: Season 1

I believe Goliath is supposed to be part of this “prestige television” movement we’ve seen across all of basic and pay cable and your various…

Black Mirror Season 3

Black Mirror: Season 3

Black Mirror is great for several reasons. For one, it’s an anthology series in a time of heavily serialized television. I mean, it’s a prestige…
