The Twilight Zone: Replay and The Comedian 1

Two more episodes of the new The Twilight Zone, which is to say that I watched the new one from this week and finally got around to watching the first episode. Neither of them are exactly subtle, which is a-okay; I think particularly with “Replay,” there’s a need to not allow the audience plausible deniability ...

The Twilight Zone: Nightmare at 30,000 Feet 3

By total accident, I watched the second episode of the new Twilight Zone first. Which I think is fine, since it’s presumably all one-shot episodes anyway. And I think this was a good one. In Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, an investigative reporter named Justin Sanderson, who is still recovering from having seen some serious shit ...

At Last, New Who

Thanks to my friend Zalia, I have at last gotten to start watching season 11 of Doctor Who. This is the first time in YEARS I’ve been excited about watching new Doctor Who, and it’s entirely because of Jodie Whittaker. I had so many hopes that the Doctor being a woman would signal a pivot away from ...

I Have Problems With “The Alienist” 1

Before I get going on this bitchfest, let me just say that translating a book into a TV show or movie is not an easy thing to do. Particularly when you’re going from a book that’s very internal, like The Alienist, which is narrated in first person, to this very external, visual medium. It’s not reasonable to ...

The Thirteenth Doctor 2

The thirteenth incarnation of the Doctor has been announced, and it’s Jodie Whittaker. I’m having a lot of feelings right now that cannot be expressed by just screaming endlessly on Twitter, so I’m putting them down here. I grew up watching Doctor Who on PBS. It’s been as huge a part of my life as ...

Into the Badlands Season 2 Finale: I’m still angry 3

It’s been two days, and I’m still furious at Into the Badlands. As usual when I’m writing about this show, there’s going to be a ton of spoilers. The last two episodes have kind of run together in my head, I think because in all honesty, not that much happened in the final episode. A ...

Into the Badlands Season 2, Episodes 1-6

I meant to write about episodes 1-3 a couple weeks ago when I actually watched them, but then I got sidetracked with some editing. So we’re just going to talk about the first six episodes in one big wad. Spoilers included. So many spoilers. Like sprinkles on your donut. Season 2 starts with a time ...

Into the Badlands: Episodes 4-6

Okay, first off, WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THAT THE FIRST SEASON IS ONLY SIX EPISODES.I would have, I don’t know, slowed my binge down slightly. Just watched two episodes a night instead of three. BUT FINE. At least it looks like I’ll be able to catch up into season 2 with the AMC ...

Into the Badlands: Episodes 1-3 1

In the massive backlash about the unnecessary whiteness of Netflix’s Iron Fist and then the reviews coming in to highlight that it’s apparently boring as shit and is full of lazy martial arts suck, I’ve been hearing a lot about Into the Badlands. The first season was available on Netflix, so I decided what the ...

[The Magicians TV] I fear for Julia 2

I’m now current on the TV show version of The Magicians, which puts me done with episode 4, waiting on 5. Full disclosure: I have not read the books, so I’m going into this blind. And occasionally cheesy special effects aside, I have really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far. (Take a moment please for us to ...
