7,5/10 … The show ties together several families and peoples destinies, and I like to follow them all. One of my favorite actor, Brandons (Jason Mitchell) adventure into the food business, the adolecent friends Kevin (Alex R. Hibbert), ‘Papa’ (Shamon Brown Jr.) and Jake (Michael Epps). The traumatized war veteran Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, or the obsessed-by-sneakers highly potent Emmett (Jacob Latimore) … the list goes on. It takes a smaller dive in the 3rd season when one of the main characters disappers from the show, but it kind of picks up when the main crime story through the hole season is introduced to the show…
6,5/10 … Crime/Drama from Wales, with the emphasis on drama. I got to watch this after it was recommended to me by imdb since I liked the Canadian show Cardinal. But to make it clear immediately, it’s nothing like Cardinal. Anyway, I started to watch this and noticed I had already done that before. That time I came one and half episode in, then I quit. I found it to bleak and depressing, but don’t get me wrong, those traits are things I have no problems with. But this was more of a “white-trash-with-zero-ambitions-living-in-garbage-apartments-drinking-beer-all-day” depressing. But since it had about 7,5 on imdb and was recommended, I thought I would give it fair chance this time.
7,5 … John Cardinal (Billy Campbell), one of the main characters annoying whispering voice was a joke, like a bad crime reporter trying to make a bad documentary “mysterious”. But pretty fast I forgot all about it and was hooked by the storyline, the characters,the beautiful landscape and the acting of Karine Vanasse.
8/10 Year: 2021 (Miniseries)Genre: Crime/Thriller/DramaOriginal Country/Title: Spain/El InocenteSource: Streaming (Netflix) PLOT 9 years after getting himself involved in a quarrel and accidentally killing a man, Mateo (Mario Casas) attempts to start over with his wife Olivia (Aura Garrido).

9/10 … This is right up my alley … dark, mysterious, moments that gives you goosebumps. It’s kind of slow but were you get to know the characters on a deeper level. The charismatic Grzegorz Damiecki (as Paweł) is simply amazing. Also the young versions of the kids made a really good job, Laura (Wiktoria Filus) and Pawel (Hubert Milkowski) and where very convincing in their affection for each other.
5/10 … I almost quit after episode one, but decided to stick with it a couple of episodes more. Why I was thinking about quitting? It kind of felt a bit to “disneyfied” for my taste, a bit too polished, too many actor faces that seems to be taken directly from a photo model catalogue. Overuse of handcuffs in situations it would never have been used in real life…
6,5/10 … The premise of the show sounded great, an FBI detective that disappeared when hunting a serial killer suddenly comes back after 6 years, I mean what’s not to like? As some of you might know, I’m not a fan of crime/thriller shows were they solve one case in 45 minutes. This not the case here, but it often plays out the same way. For example, one character is supposed to break in to a mental hospital, and gets told how hard it’s gonna be, 2 minutes later she as succeeded. Usually I would have given up by now, but there’s something “unknown” about the main characters background that I find intriguing, so I kept watching.
9/10 … So there’s a street called Wisteria Lane, in Fairview in the fictional Eagle State, and there lived 4 desperate housewives. One was a hot tempered Italian (Lynette), one was a Trump voting bible thumping stick up her ass housewife (Bree), the third a psychotic dipping her nose in everything that’s not her business (Susan) and should be euthanized for societies well being. Last but not least we have the whore (Gabrielle) who does everything for money, clothes and jewelry. She has an affair with a underage gardener, but have no problems telling other who have affairS that what they do is wrong…
7/10 … A real slow burn of a drama TV show, with nice slow character build up. Akili McDowell in the main lead as David is really good. But although I really enjoy the show and will watch the next episode, I can’t shake the feeling that something is missing, some extra dimension to the whole storyline…
This show is right up my alley, since I’m a sucker for things that have been made seriously, and then it just crashes and burn. This is extremely entertaining with a lot of stop-motion and a Spiderman running on an apparent floor, but we are supposed to think it’s walls or ceiling. Kids toys are we supposed to believe are real working robots or vehicles. Just awesome!
Updated 2021-10-09 So on this page I collect TV Shows I didn’t finish … because you know, life’s too short! I have so many movies and TV shows I want to see so I don’t have time looking through an entire TV show that starts out bad, so my personal guidelines is to watch at […]
7,5/10 … I have been waiting for a show like this for ages. A show that doesn’t think that all viewers are idiots and they have to make the plot and twists so simple so you know what’s up 15 minutes into it. Bill Pullman is nothing less than amazing in his role as the slightly autistic and awkward Detective Harry Ambrose. He’s the only one that appears in all seasons and I would love to follow him for 10 more seasons…..
7/10 … The director’s chair is divided between several directors, but most prominent is M. Night Shyamalan. He seems to be one of those directors that gets to take a lot of shit, and I have no idea why. He made several awesome movies like The Sixth Sense (1999), Signs (2002), The Village (2004) and The Visit (2005) and here he strikes again, directing 3 episodes. Personally, I like his work and will continue to follow it….
6/10 … It kind of feels like it had that “The horror show of the year” talk before its release, and I really wanted to like it. But it landed in the “it was ok” piles. Victoria Pedretti is awesome as always, as the au pair. I just love her acting. Just her facial expressions reacting to various situations is amazing. Also Amelie Bea Smith as the little girl did a great job. But the show in itself, although it had some creepy atmosphere going on, it doesn’t really go anywhere for what feels like ages. A week after I watched it, I got a question what it was about, and I had already forgot. So no lasting impression. A one time watch for me!
Rosa Parks, as awesome as she was, was not the first Black woman to refuse to move to the back of the bus. And Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek fame, as awesome as she is, is not the first woman to be part of an interracial kiss on television. But in both cases, they initiated […]
