TV Review: ‘American Horror Story: Delicate’ is saved by Kim Kardashian

Posted: September 21, 2023 at 9:42 am   /   Reviews, Television Reviews

Ryan Murphy has been plaguing us with this shitty horror program for over a decade now. AHS: Delicate is really no different than the past entrants of the series. It’s plain terrible. I can honestly say that after viewing the first episode, that this series is nearly unwatchable. I say that because the only reason […]

Television Review: Wrapping up Ted Lasso – “Barbecue Sauce” (S3E12)

Posted: June 5, 2023 at 3:37 pm   /   Television Reviews

Note: since the final episode came out a few days ago, this review may contain some spoilers. It’s not solely a review of episode 12, but more a collation of thoughts of the entire series with a few thoughts on how it all wrapped up. 2020 was not a great year. Three years later, the […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E11 “Mom City”

Posted: May 24, 2023 at 9:43 am   /   Television Reviews

Well, here we are: the penultimate episode of the season and, dare I say, series. It’s certainly a little bittersweet to think about, but I’ll save those thoughts for next week when the series wraps up. The show has mostly set football aside the last few episodes, showing just a couple of brief clips while […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E10 “International Break”

Posted: May 17, 2023 at 10:56 am   /   Television Reviews

Catharsis. I feel like I’ve used that word a bit when talking about Ted Lasso, but ultimately, it’s the best term I can use to describe most of the episodes. Each episode is designed to elicit some sort of emotion (in most cases, multiple emotions), and while small issues may be resolved by the end […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E9 “La Locker Room Aux Folles”

Posted: May 10, 2023 at 6:00 am   /   Television Reviews

“Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” – John Stuart Mill When Colin was shown to be gay […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E8 “We’ll Never Have Paris”

Posted: May 3, 2023 at 11:31 am   /   Television Reviews

After the incredible highs of the recent few episodes (even though the team has been struggling), it seemed almost inevitable that at some point the grades for Ted Lasso episodes might start regressing to the mean.* * Perhaps it’s truly an inversion; the worse the team performance, the better the episodes? The bulk of the […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E7 “The Strings That Bind Us”

Posted: April 26, 2023 at 7:32 am   /   Television Reviews

“But a man does not fight merely to win! No—no—better to know one fights in vain!” I remember the words one of my former co-workers once said. No, not the quote above; Edmond Rostand predates me by about 120 years. But said co-worker is huge into sports, and his sons are as well. And when […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E6 “Sunflowers”

Posted: April 19, 2023 at 10:12 am   /   Television Reviews

“Where is she going?” “With someone that believes they deserve her.” *punches wall* And so we’ve reached the halfway point of the third (and likely final) season. After dropping a friendly match in Amsterdam, Ted decides the team needs a bit of a break. After boarding the bus back to the hotel, he announces to […]

Television Review: Ted Lasso S3E4 “Big Week”

Posted: April 5, 2023 at 8:24 am   /   Television Reviews

“I’m a work in progmess.” Me too, Ted. Me too. Well, as evidenced by the title of the episode, “Big Week,” this is it. The big anticipated matchup between AFC Richmond and West Ham. Ted vs. Nate the Wonder Kid with first place on the line. And that’s the storyline that dominates much of the […]

TV Review: Ted Lasso S3E2 “(I Don’t Want to go to) Chelsea”

Posted: March 22, 2023 at 9:54 am   /   Television Reviews

Note: since I reviewed episode 1, I will be writing this as if the reader has already watched it. If you haven’t, go back and watch it! It’s game time! While the first episode was an excellent building block for the upcoming season, it didn’t have any football in it, leaving us in anticipation of […]
