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. Fans of the original will recognize some very familiar… 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 »

“Dexter” Series Finale…Again…

Now that we know how it ends, the question on every “Dexter: New Blood” viewer’s mind is: “Will this be the real series finale of “Dexter?” [Spoilers ahead] Surely to God it will be since the idea of doing this a third time may be too much even for the hardest core “Dexter” fan…of which… Read More »

Who was Behind the “Yellowstone” Shocker?

Spoilers below if you haven’t seen the season 3 finale of “Yellowstone.” Season 3 of “Yellowstone” ended with a bang (or three) as all three (biological) members of the Dutton family saw themselves targeted for assassination. Only daughter Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly, who had even more fun chewing the scenery this year) was possibly blown… Read More »

Ranking and Grading “The Good Place” Seasons

A quick, spoiler-free review about “The Good Place” series finale: it was nearly perfect. After a somewhat sluggish start to this season (probably too many episodes were devoted to the experiment), the last handful of episodes have been excellent, soulful, thought provoking, character-rich, heartbreaking, romantic, funny, moving, and true. Although the finale tricked us somewhat… Read More »
