Mom Jokes: Little Johnny Learns What Makes a Country

A very old joke that still works completely… Young Johnny asks his dad how a country runs. His dad thinks and replies, “Well, it’s like this. I earn the money in the house, so I’m the rich. Your mom takes care of running the home, so she is the government. The maid is the working… Read More »

Ranking and Grading the Seasons of “Ozark”

If “Ozark” was ever a contender for the title of “Best Crime Drama on Television” then it long ago seceded that mantle to “Better Call Saul” (another crime drama finishing its run this year, albeit in a much higher quality). “Ozark” was as frustrating as it was excellent, often alternating between choice bits of drama… Read More »

TV Reviews: “Vikings: Valhalla” and “The Girl Before”

“Vikings: Valhalla”…As a long-suffering “fan” of the original “Vikings,” I kept watching all six seasons years after most people had given up. So I wasn’t totally thrilled to see Netflix revive the “Vikings” brand, and in a way where changes are so minimal, they’re practically non-existent.

Oscar Nominations: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Per usual, there were some notable snubs and some long-shot heartbreaker snubs that Alabama Liberal was holding out hope for.

Well, that’s… Read More »

My apologies, but I think you’ll agree that 2021 was a pretty good year for movies, and hopefully find several… Read More »

TV Reviews: “Ozark” Season 4 (Part 1) and “The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window”

I’ve made a New Year’s resolution to include more TV and Film reviews this year (they were almost completely absent from this site in 2021). Luckily, Netflix had a pair of buzz-worthy shows in January that almost everyone on Earth has already seen and weighed in on. However, they were both improperly reviewed on Rotten… Read More »

Best TV Moments (or Episodes) of 2021

A few honorable mentions: I almost included Evan Peters’s shocking death in “Mare of Easttown,” but felt conflicted; while that was certainly the most shocking murder of 2021 TV, I just felt too bad for his character (one of my favorites) to really include it as a “Best” moment. Likewise, I enjoyed “Yellowstone”‘s no-fuss, no-muss… Read More »
