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…
8,5/10 … 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…
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 2021-05-01 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…..
9/10 … 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 […]
John Saxon, my all-time favourite ”not leading role” actor passed away on July 25 in pneumonia in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at the age of 83. The news really struck me hard since he has been with me since I watched ”Nightmare on Elm Street” for the first time. He’s extremely charismatic and I don’t know why […]
7,5/10 … The UK version is on my top 5 best/funniest sitcoms ever list, so I never watched this, the american version when it was first aired. And it took a while to shake of the ”let’s Americanize an already perfect show”. But when I forgot about the original, this is awesome. Especially the first 5 seasons.
Here I collect every short review I made on TV Shows. To see another genre look at the index page. You find it here! When it comes to TV Shows. I enjoy mainly the ones who follows a storyline throughout a whole season. TV shows where they are going to solve a case in 45 minutes I usually find very boring. As you see, sometimes I rate each season and sometimes just the whole show.
I have no idea why Netflix makes it so hard to browse the different genres on their site. I started to look into it when it wanted to find movies from smaller countries in South America or the Middle-East but couldn’t in any easy way. Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres if you’ve […]
6,5/10 … All in all, an above average series to watch will your doing something on your phone or cooking dinner. If it wasn’t for the con parts, I would have quit during season one.
8/10 … Wu-Tang Clan is my all-time favourite hip hop act and Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon and GZA are all on my top 10 list of favourite rappers…..
