The Plot Against America Feels Very Realistic

The Plot Against America is a very realistic look at what the early 1940s could have looked like if Charles Lindbergh had been elected as president. What the world could have been.  This is not something any of us really want to think about.  A world without the Holocaust or persecution against Jewry is something I think about all the time.  And yet, it’s very well possible that something like what we see in this…

Hillary: Four Hours Is Worth It For Clinton

Whether or not you’re a fan of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Hulu documentary series offers insight into both her life and marriage. The four-part documentary series runs in at 253 minutes.  It’s a worthy commitment to binge-watch in one day but the decision is totally worth it.  It’s how I spent my Sunday afternoon following the end of a very long week. Before I go any further, I’ll disclaim that I am…

Hunters: This Series Isn’t For Everyone

Amazon’s newest television series, Hunters, follows a team of Nazi Hunters–led by Meyer Offerman–living in New York City in 1977. To say that the first half of the series didn’t sit well with me would not be an understatement.  The tone is somewhere closer to Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds than Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List.  Don’t even think about comparisons to Best Picture nominee Jojo Rabbit because the two couldn’t be more different in tone. Where…

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 3 Is Here

Amazon surprised us all by dropping season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel a few hours earlier but the third season is the best season yet. The series takes us away from the Catskills and on the road with Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan).  This season, Midge is on tour for the first time and opening up for Shy Baldwin (Leroy McClain).  That’s not to say that we don’t miss out on New York City…

Disney+: The Streaming Wars Are Here

With today’s launch of Disney+ and Disney unleashing their film vault, it marks the real start of the streaming war with the likes of Netflix and Apple TV+. The key difference between Disney+ and Apple TV+ is that Disney has more options available.  It’s that simple.  They have an entire film vault unopened and then some.  Nobody is really subscribing to Disney+ because they want to watch some of the new things.  Well, they might. …

The Morning Show: A TV Drama for the #MeToo Era

The Morning Show is the definitive television drama series for the #MeToo era and the Apple TV+ series could not be more timelier with its commentary. We’re over two years into the start of the #MeToo movement.  While some series have offered commentary in terms of references, The Morning Show goes big.  It isn’t just that the series is ripped out of the headlines but Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) could easily be a stand-in for…

The Flash: Into The Void – A Crisis Is Looming

The sixth season premiere of The Flash paves the way for this season’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover while key players grieve losses from last season. The season starts with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) watching Nora’s (Jessica Parker Kennedy) taped message before a power surge destroys it.  Cut to four months later and the two of them are still grieving their loss.  They’ll see Nora again in the future but…

Supergirl: Event Horizon (Season 5)

Supergirl welcomes some new cast members while still stressing the importance of journalism as the fifth season premiered on Sunday night. The series changed up the status quo in the fourth season finale when Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) revealed that Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) is Supergirl.  There was no telling how Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) would react.  The fifth season started with Lena testing a virtual reality system.  There’s no way that this is going…

Batwoman: The Pilot

Batwoman makes her mark by getting her own series after making her initial appearance during the Arrowverse crossover last season. There are some mild spoilers here. While we were previously introduced to Kate Kane (Ruby Rose), the pilot takes more of an approach in terms of an actual origin story.  Kate climbs her way out of the water while we see flashbacks of the day her mother, Gabrielle, and sister, Beth, died.  What we see…

The Good Place Teaches Us Ethics For Last Time

The Good Place begins the final round of goodbyes when the fourth season premiere of the ethics-teaching series airs tonight on NBC. There’s no easy way to discuss this comedy series without fear of spoilers.  It’s also a series that you honestly need to start from the beginning.  There’s no up and jumping into the fourth season or you’ll be very lost.  Honestly, I feel that The Selection digital series will enhance the new season,…
