The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – Season 4 0

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – Season 4

This felt like Maisel back in form after wandering a bit – albeit getting plenty more value out of the supporting characters too, especially Abe Weissman and Moishe Maisel.  The plot arc shows The...

The Orville – Season 1 0

The Orville – Season 1

Intriguing, this one – I had a look at the first one of these ages ago because of the concept (space/scifi comedy, helmed by Seth McFarlane), and found the whole thing a bit desperate....

Young Rock 0

Young Rock

BOOM! Now we’re talking.  It’s a comedy quasi-biopic based on the life of Dwayne Johnson, told as a series of reminiscences as part of his Presidential campaign in 2032.  It’s sweet, funny, engaging, and...

Rick and Morty – Season 5 0

Rick and Morty – Season 5

Dammit, this show just keeps getting better & better – and Season 5 genuinely gave the idea that Roiland & Harmon genuinely don’t care, and are putting in EXACTLY what they want to.  More...

The White Lotus 0

The White Lotus

High-production-value piece about a few groups of protagonists who go to an island resort for their own various reasons, and the subsequent interplay and revelations they have whilst there. It’s got a bit of...

On Becoming a God in Central Florida

This caught me TOTALLY off-guard. I was quite excited to see the series kick off with Alexander Skarsgard playing “Florida Man” in an Amway-but-OBVIOUSLY-IT’S-NOT-AMWAY cult/multilevel marketing cult… and then, well, let’s say Episode 1...

The Simpsons – Season 31 0

The Simpsons – Season 31

It’s a well-known fact among opinionated old arseholes like me that The Simpsons isn’t as good as it used to be. It had its “glory period” from series 4 to 10, and it’s gone...

Aunty Donna’s Big Ol House of Fun 0

Aunty Donna’s Big Ol House of Fun

Bit of surrealist Australian nonsense here – I think I’d seen a few Aunty Donna videos on Youtube, so their being commissioned for a Netflix series seemed worth a punt.  It’s intriguing to ponder...

Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut) 0

Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut)

If there’s something I really don’t need in my life it’s more frigging Monty Python documentary. I’ve been watching/reading Python docos pretty much since I’ve known about the Pythons.  While watching this I realised...

The Muppets 0

The Muppets

This was the ABC network’s “contemporary” take on using the Muppet characters in a mockumentary behind-the-scenes-on-a-variety-show setting… which is kinda weird, because that’s fundamentally what The Muppet Show was about. So what the hell’s...
