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)”

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

Two Bobs- The Perfect True Crime [The Jinx]

As Bob Durst sits down for his interview at the end of the first episode of The Jinx, which detailed all of his misdeeds- being accused of killing his wife, running from the law in an investigation into a different murder, stealing a sandwich when he had thirty thousand dollars in cash, ya’ know, the usual-Continue reading “Two Bobs- The Perfect True Crime [The Jinx]”

The Many Kendalls [Succession]

Secure on the back of Jeremy Strong, Kendall, as a Succession character, goes through many transformations- becoming many separate and unique ‘Kendalls,’ if you will- in only these first two seasons. These evolutions are a mighty feat of acting, and the bedrock upon which the storyline of Succession, not only stands, but evolves and thrives. EveryContinue reading “The Many Kendalls [Succession]”
