  • I won't rehash all that's wrong with *The Walking Dead* but season seven continued all the bad trends. It even managed to reach new lows with Jadis and the trash people. Their implausible behaviour was only matched by the stupidity of Rick trusting them. You can put that all to one side though. The most egregious thing about the whole season was the finale. It was a rehash of the Season 3 ending where nothing was resolved so that the Governor could limp on for another year. The staging of the battle was awful.

  • There was lots to like about *Stranger Things*. But it felt like an extended movie rather than a TV show. All the character beats were big and broad. The plot flew along predictably toward a happy ending. And none of that is bad. But I don't see a point in producing a season two. The story has been told. I could see this as an anthology series but would have little interest in revisiting Hawkins itself. *Atlanta *reminded me quite a bit of *Girls*.

    This was the best character episode of the season, but it didn't deliver nearly as much on the other fronts. "Henry" says some very interesting things in this episode and on rewatch it is clear tha...

    I know I am commenting on this post way too late. But I have a question about this episode. When did Angela and Dwight have this alleged affair? As far as I remember Angela broke off her "conception...

  • Pockets on TOW The Dirty Girl
    While I really enjoy your reviews and agree with you on most things, I think it is plausible that a beautiful and clever woman could have an apartment that messy. I have ADHD and Asperger's and yeah, ...
