The Dick Van Dyke Show is my favorite TV show ever. Still such a warm, funny, and sophisticated show. And that's only part of his legacy. Cheers to a well lived life.

The only thing that makes the Artemis Fowl books stand out from a million other "kid entangled with fantastic worlds" books is how much they commit to that precocious, mostly amoral, condescending, snide, and often physically cowardly little shit as a protagonist. Without that, what's the point?

The "world maintenance" line made me think of the classic 80s Twilight Zone reboot episode where the world is rebuilt from minute to minute.

“Ryan Murphy’s Tales from the Crypt/ Tales from the Darkside/ Creepshow” sounds kind of promising. Every season of AHS suffers from wild tangents, dead ends, and excess subplots. One episode bites might be the perfect length to force them to focus.

Can he do it as Caesar from the Planet of the Apes movies? Mostly grunts, growls, and hoots with the occasional snarled word?

Criss, Quinto, and Daddario all seem like decent casting choices for a live action Supes movie.

I just loved seeing these characters again. Pretty much everything made me smile, though the only huge laughs I had were Jean-Ralphio’s commercial and Johnny Karate's message to kids. “Take care of your friends but take care of yourself, too” is a perfect Parks and Rec message.

The songs and the caricature style animation are great. Otherwise it’s kind of OK. I think you could actually improve on it.

I just got the worst mental image of Disney actually doing covid-themed park merchandise. Maybe a little picture of Mickey wearing a mask? The whole gang dressed up as doctors and nurses? I would not put it past them to do it.

Apart from his other gifts, he had the most beautiful speaking voice. He could make anything sound profound or meaningful.

I thought Satanic Panic was a much better, well, Satanic panic horror semi-comedy. This one was alright. It certainly gets more fun after the big reveal. Johnson is pretty wooden as the most sympathetic of the guys, though kudos to him for embracing that hairstyle. I think the very end makes no sense whatsoever Read more

Sad to see regular reviews leaving (and thank you for all of the writing) but this was an unexpectedly lovely episode to go out on - funny, grounded in character, with more of a first or second season pacing to it and genuine questions about what people want out of religion.

I’ve always been more bothered that they kept the guy who tried to assault Lorraine around. Like, I know it’s a cute contrivance to show how George standing up to him altered the future but would you really invite this guy around your kids?

I found Dotty disturbing. She seemed more like a character the Paddy's Pub crew would run into than a normal Brooklyn 99 eccentric.

The rights stuff with Henson creations is complicated but I believe that Fraggle Rock has always been owned by the Jim Henson Company. They took the word "muppet" off some of the home video releases.

Apparently using helium as a cooling agent in a nuclear reactor is an actual scientific theory. The fact that I took the time to Google this during the episode shows how I interested I was in the Homer/Cletus and Marge/Maggie plots. There were a couple of good jokes (I liked Lenny being panicked about having to sit Read more

I watched one of the Corman Poe movies the other day. I bet a Vincent Price/Hazel Court commentary track would have been delightful.
