Nurses: Antisemitic Charges Aimed at NBC, not Global TV

Charges of antisemitism were directed at NBC two weeks after the “Achilles Heel” episode of Nurses aired while Global TV in Canada gets no blame. Most people seem to be unaware that Nurses originated in Canada. The press releases I’ve seen from both the Simon Wiesenthal Center and B’nai Brith Canada direct the blame to NBC. B’nai Brith Canada, for what it’s worth, seems to be the only organization acknowledging the producers of the series…

Superman and Lois: The Pilot is Promising

Superman and Lois might be the newest addition to the Arrowverse but Superman fans in general are no strangers to the adventures of Lois and Clark. I grew up watching Superman on TV in various iterations. I watched both 1993-97’s Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and 2001-2011’s Smallville. Because of this, I’m no stranger to these characters.  There are also the films starring Christopher Reeve. The rest is history. Superman and Lois…

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things Is A Charmer

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a charming romance story that arrives grounded in the form of yet another time loop film. Time loop films aren’t new but the trick for filmmakers is to make them different from the rest.  Groundhog Day is the golden standard when it comes to the romantic comedy stuck within a time loop.  Most recently, there’s Palm Springs starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti.  The former is over 25…

WandaVision, Disney+, and the Binge-Watch Culture

By launching a weekly series like WandaVision rather than all episodes at the same time, Disney+ is making sure viewers keep coming back. WandaVision and The Mandalorian both have viewers coming back each week.  One is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe while the other is a Star Wars series.  At the end of the day, however, the episodes have viewers talking.  Unfortunately, they are also the type of series where you have to watch…

Horizon Line Is Now Available On Blu-ray

Horizon Line, a thriller starring Allison Williams and Alexander Dreymon, is now available for audiences to watch on Blu-ray and DVD. After releasing in Swedish theaters last November in Sweden, STXfilms relased the adventure thriller through VOD retailers on January 12, 2021.  Following the initial home entertainment window, audiences will also be able to watch the film on Epix. After far as I can tell from looking through Mikael Marcimain’s film credits on IMDB, this…

Blithe Spirit Offers Laughs For Viewers

Blithe Spirit is the type of screwball comedy that will offer laughs this deep into the pandemic even if characters aren’t that likeable. Noël Coward’s play comes to the big screen or small screen depending on how you’re watching.  I cannot compare the film to the play because I haven’t seen it.  Nor can I compare it to the 1945 film or the 1956 TV movie.  To be fair, I had no idea that the…
