I’m always in favour of written, directed and produced by women, so no disagreement here. But I actually like that it’s not very mucht about the “difficulties of being a woman during the time shown”.

I’m mean, it’s not glossed over entirely - there are always more or less subtle reminders about the traps just waiting Read more

Yep, the Walking Dead universe has done this kind of thing so much it is really, really annoying. They have ONE monster on this show, zombies, and they cannot get just some simple rules right about it. As I said elsewhere, why everyone is not wearing some kind of armor (cloth, leather or metal) is baffling to me. Read more

I am so bored of stories that should have been movies inexplicably being turned into a 7-10 episode limited series that get forgotten about in fifteen minutes. Make a goddamn movie! Everyone involved clearly wants to make a movie and doesn’t actually want to make a television show, because these shows have nothing to Read more

And if you watch original flavor Walking Dead, it might have shed some light on what it meant for Rick to be classified as an A or B.

I finished the series, I don’t know any more clarification the audience would need to see how detrimental her substance abuse was to her future and even at the end of the series will be a demon she’ll continue to battle. My rock bottom was severe enough but I know lots in recovery that caught themselves before they Read more

Maybe its just supposed to show the naivety of the kids but I actually just find it odd the lack of urgency of just hanging out locked in the gym. Also, you are in a huge high school. Wandering the halls searching lockers? My first priority, as a group, find the cafeteria and you find the kitchen. And Felix is Read more

Ah the return of The Walking Dead trope I hate the most - it’s a death sentence if they bite us but it is perfectly safe to punch them repeatedly in the face with our bare hands. Read more

Danette doesn’t mention it in this review, but apparently the production brought on famed (well, as famed as you can be in chess circles) chess instructor Bruce Pandolfini to getthe actors up to speed on how their characters would play. Read more

I believe Tina Fey was the first head writer to also do Update, so she started that trend, then Meyers and now Jost

The opening political skits are just killing the show. They’re too long, not very funny and because they feature all guest stars, don’t even feel like the same show. It also can’t be said enough that Baldwin’s Trump is not even close to resembling real Trump. They’re sucking up a lot of oxygen that could be given to, Read more

Honestly, if they weren’t leading off the show each week with eleven utterly dire minutes this would be a great run of episodes. Read more

It’s like if watch enough episodes of the law and order universe see the same actor in a completely different role. Like Viola Davis who played a lawyer and a corrupt cop. Or Peter Scanavino who actually played a perp before he became Carisi.

I think it also showed up the show’s continued diversity issues with the female cast, as Maya is the only biracial female currently involved with the show (and was not even involved with the show when they asked her to play Kamala).

How conceptually weird was it (and yes, it’s only a sketch show , so who cares) to take Maya Rudolph - who is the gold-standard Kamala - and reintroduce her into a 2020 election cold open as the debate moderator? It seemed so odd. Not since Mark Leonard played a Romulan commander and then resurfaced as Spock’s dad on Read more

The Monopoly Maneuver sounds like a sex position and a potential porn franchise.

If you like this movie, check out my film The Monopoly Maneuver, a period drama set around the time in the game where you get caught cheating and flip the board over before fleeing the room, freeing everybody from playing. It’s loosely based on a real game of Monopoly. Which one? All of them!
