    Review: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood sounds from the title like it should be about Fred Rogers and Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. It’s really about how Fred Rogers influenced the life of Esquire Magazine writer Lloyd Vogel.

    Review: The Report

    I finally got around to watching The Report on Prime Video on the day we all waited for results from the Iowa caucuses, the day of the SOTU address, and the day before the Senate’s final vote on the President’s impeachment trial. It was a good day to watch this film and be reminded that […]

    Brain Dump: The Americans, Coco, The Split

    A few brief comments on television and movies coming at you in this edition of a brain dump. I’ll talk about The Americans, Coco, and The Split.

  • Review: The Post

    Review: The Post

     The Post taps into the modern political situation like it was 1971. I don’t know how filmmakers tap into the zeitgeist of a particular moment with films like The Post that take months or years to make, but they do it again and again.

    Watch This: Trailer for The Post

    Are you old enough to remember The Pentagon Papers? Just in case that was before your time, they were 700 pages of secret government documents about the Viet Nam War. They made the government look very bad. Very bad. Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks star in The Post to tell the story of how those […]

    Brain Dump: House of Cards, Empire, The Americans, The Fosters

    It’s a brain dump day. Just a little bit of one thing or another in disconnected ramblings. House of Cards When Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) finally has all the power in the world in his hands, he becomes a tyrant and a bigger ass than he ever was. And when Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) has […]

    Watch This: Previews for Season 3 of The Americans

    The Americans will start season 3 on FX on January 28. I’ve been watching this drama about Soviet spies in the U.S. during the Cold War in the 1980s since the first season. As unlikely as it sounds to say that I like a show about Soviet spies, I am saying it here. Much of […]

    Brain Dump from a Teeming TV Filled Mind

    Random thoughts and observations on this and that as seen on my teevee. The Walking Dead Did you see the episode of The Walking Dead called “The Grove?” Brighton Sharbino and Kyla Kenedy as the two young girls were fantastic. Brighton, in particular, was 100% convincing. Very impressed to see such outstanding acting from two […]

    Random Thoughts from a Teeming TV Filled Brain

    The TV is brewing a brain full of random ideas in me this week. It’s a mish-mash. The Americans season 2 started last night on FX and it’s extra good. Don’t ask me why I care so much about Russian spies, but Kari Russell and Matthew Rhys make me care. The stakes are so high […]
