The Last Season of [Game of Thrones]

The entire Game of Throne’s series was a historical moment in television, a fantasy epic became the frontrunner in television, a must see that was as pervasive in culture as any show had ever been. And because of its fantastical nature the show was able to present and provide TV moments the likes of whichContinue reading “The Last Season of [Game of Thrones]”

Looking Into The Lens [Fleabag] (Season 2)

That’s it??? Fleabag’s done??? But it was only two seasons! And there were only six episodes a season! And they only gave each episode a half hour! How can they be done?? That should probably be all I say to recap my feelings on season two of Fleabag, since I had no clue that there weren’t plans for aContinue reading “Looking Into The Lens [Fleabag] (Season 2)”

Why We Need Season 3 Of [Mindhunter]

Am I doing this? Am I actually doing this? Am I going to write an entire post about something that doesn’t need saying? This post will be the appendix of the blog world… nobody knows why it exists, but it’s here, and it might even be doing something, although we can’t say what. Right now,Continue reading “Why We Need Season 3 Of [Mindhunter]”

The Glare Of The [Friday Night Lights]

My first exposure to Friday Night Lights (movie, book, and TV show) was through the responses from others who had seen the film or show (not many, if any, had read the book) and were heavily involved in football (some in Texas). Unexpectedly, this offered me a unique vantage point on the impact of the story, whichContinue reading “The Glare Of The [Friday Night Lights]”

Simply Bullshit [Fleabag] (Season 1)

Fleabag is the latest installment in the dark comedies the world finds more relatable than the sitcoms of the 90s to the early 2000s or the non-laugh track series of the 2010s. We have entered an era where deconstructing our own pain and laughing at the absurdity of our mortal selves bashing into each otherContinue reading “Simply Bullshit [Fleabag] (Season 1)”

Tom and Greg “We Here For You”: A Beautiful Relationship [Succession]

Tom and Greg have a special bond developed over these two seasons of Succession. They have become America’s sweethearts through the hilarity of their interactions. Through moments where they first meet and Tom asks Greg to kiss him, or later in season two when Greg asks to have an open business relationship with Tom amidst aContinue reading “Tom and Greg “We Here For You”: A Beautiful Relationship [Succession]”

Babu Bhatt: An Appreciation for The Minor Characters of [Seinfeld]

My favorite of the minor Seinfeld characters is Babu Bhatt. His lines were good enough (“You bad man. You very very bad man.”) his actions replicable enough (that finger wag though- challenging Mutumbo for the finger wag heavyweight title), the episode funny enough, and my exposure to it early enough that I haven’t shaken it from myContinue reading “Babu Bhatt: An Appreciation for The Minor Characters of [Seinfeld]”

The Language of [Seinfeld]: 22 Years Later

Seinfeld went off the air in 1998. That is officially 22 years ago. And yet, Seinfeld-isms abound in our modern lexicon- words and phrases that were either invented or given a boost into the realms of common slang by the show.  Language changes rapidly. Just imagine if someone was saying ‘groovy’ or ‘square’ or ‘far-out’Continue reading “The Language of [Seinfeld]: 22 Years Later”

Why Did Kendall Steal The Batteries? [Succession]

In the midst of the delay of shooting the third season of Succession, I have been wandering the internet realm of Succession discussions. In that wonderful world of Tom quotes, Roman/Gerri memes, and “Fuck offs” there is one topic of conversation that recurs frequently- Why, in episode two of the second season, did Kendall steal and throw awayContinue reading “Why Did Kendall Steal The Batteries? [Succession]”
