TV Reviews

Awesomely awesome reviews of the best series tv has to offer

Maniac - Season 1

Maniac: Season 1

Using the tried and true method of showing us a future that is also retro, the show’s creator, Cary Fukunaga, amazingly makes the near future (or a slightly skewed...
Lodge 49: Season 1

Lodge 49: Season 1

Oh my god is this a weird show. The whole thing seems to operate in a weed haze, a cloud of smoke. Its overly-languid pace and its plot that seemingly goes absolutely...
Forever: Season 1

Forever: Season 1

I have to say right out of the gate that I’m not a Fred Armisen fan. There’s something about him that annoys the living shit out of me. It’s his delivery, mostl...
Sharp Objects

Sharp Objects

Everyone in Sharp Objects is terrible at his/her job. Camille (Amy Adams) is a terrible reporter. She sleeps with subjects of her reporting and spends more time...

Succession: Season 1

Barry Season 1

Barry: Season 1

I thought, for some reason, that Barry was going to be a tough hang. My exposure to Bill Hader was limited mostly to his characters on SNL, most of which put me...
Collateral

Collateral: Season 1

Like so many Netflix shows, Collateral came out of nowhere. Well, it came out of the BBC Two, technically, but I didn't really know about it until it got ploppe...
Top Chef: Season 15

Top Chef: Season 15

I've been watching Top Chef for fifteen seasons now. It's hard to believe in all that time I've only ever eaten in around five restaurants of those contestants,...
Dark - Season 1

Dark: Season 1

The Germans don't mince words. They are efficient and don't waste breath on flowery language. So it's not surprising that they went with the very succinct, supe...
