The Orville: New Horizons Continues Pop Culture TV Trope

The Orville: New Horizons unfortunately plays into a longstanding pop culture TV trope in the season’s penultimate episode. I’m going to get into spoiler territory as I discuss the most recent episode. After getting kicked out of the Planetary Union, the Moclans form an alliance with the Krill. In response to this unfortunate turn of events, the Union surprisingly forms an alliance with Kaylon. Not everyone is on board with this, leading Union Admiral Perry…

The Orville: New Horizons Has A Moving Trans Storyline

After the initial backlash to The Orville, Seth MacFarlane responds with its strongest trans episodes yet in The Orville: New Horizons.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous – Season 5

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous launches its fifth and final season on Netflix with a thrilling conclusion to the Nublar Six’s saga. The past few years have been both fun and thrilling. For Jurassic Park/World fans such as myself, the animated series has provided a way to hold fans over until Jurassic World Dominion‘s release. While I wasn’t as high on the fourth season as the previous seasons, it’s been one heck of a ride. Even…

Light & Magic Tells The Rich History of ILM

Light & Magic is a 6-part documentary series that goes back into the archives to give us the deep history of Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). The history of ILM cannot be told without George Lucas, John Dykstra, Ken Ralston, Richard Edlund, Dennis Muren, Robert Blalack, Joe Johnston, Phil Tippett, Steve Gawley, Lorne Peterson, and Paul Huston. It’s because of them that filmmaking would change as a result of a sci-fi film, Star Wars. Dennis Muren would also join the list of…

Emmy Voters Nominate Transphobic Comedy Special

In what is extremely disappointing news, a not-funny transphobic Netflix comedy special was nominated for the 74th Emmy Awards. Let me repeat: Emmy voters watched Dave Chappelle: The Closer and decided that Dave Chappelle delivered one of the best specials of the year. If you need a reminder, Chappelle is once again transphobic and also delves into antisemitic territory. And once again, voters watched this and decided it is worth of an Emmy. The Academy…

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part VI Delivers All The Goods

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part VI is an epic finale that delivers all the goods that any Star Wars fan could have wanted this season. To say that the finale was anything but epic would certainly be an understatement. This episode had everything that I was wanting. Well, it took almost all of the runtime but I am not complaining over here. I heard complaints about the third episode as if nobody thought they were waiting for…

Only Murders In The Building – Season 2

True crime comedy Only Murders In The Building comes back to Hulu for season 2 and starts moments after season 1 left off. If you’ve forgotten what happens, Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (Martin Short), and Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez) were suspected of killing Arconia Board President Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell). Because they are people of interest, it is in their best interests to not do a second season of their podcast but this…

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part V delivers its best episode to date in the penultimate episode and sets up what will likely be an explosive finale. Disney learned from its mistake upon launching the series on May 27. This time around, there is a warning to alert viewers about unsuitable images.
