Review: One Mississippi

The only thing wrong with season 1 of One Mississippi is there isn’t enough of it. It’s a mere 6 brief episodes with Tig Notaro in her semi-autobiographical struggle to survive cancer, C-Diff, childhood trauma, and the death of her mother all in one overwhelming onslaught.

Review: The Kettering Incident

The Kettering Incident is an Australian series now available on Amazon Video. It’s a dark, ethereal Gothic mystery wrapped in layers of science fiction. Filmed in the small Tasmanian town of Kettering, nearby Bruny Island, and the dense forests surrounding the town, the location is beautiful, yet as eerie as the incidents.

This review is as general and spoiler free as possible. Continue reading “Review: The Kettering Incident”

Orange is the New Black: Finding a Balm for Your Pain

Orange is the New Black season 4 puts viewers through the wringer. Abuse, murder, death, mental illness, surviving rape, corporate greed. It’s dark and horrifying. There are moments of hope, of light. There are ways of dealing. I thought it would good to end my series of posts on the latest season of Orange is the New Black with something brighter. There are spoilers ahead.  Continue reading “Orange is the New Black: Finding a Balm for Your Pain”
