TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 6) on Apple TV+

Posted: February 23, 2024 at 12:55 pm   /   Television, Television Reviews

Part Six begins in the aftermath of Part Five, showing three very different outcomes for members of the 100th. It’s a change of pace from Five, as there isn’t any aerial combat and the action on the ground is relatively limited. Major Egan, whose plane was shot down, is seen attempting to find food and […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 5) on Apple TV+

Posted: February 16, 2024 at 6:29 am   /   Television, Television Reviews

At this point, halfway through the series, Masters of the Air has established a bit of a formula for its episodes. Roughly a third to a half of the episode focuses on the current bombing mission for the 100th, and the other two-thirds deal with the aftermath as well as the preparation for the next […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 4) on Apple TV+

And now for the aftermath. While Part 3 showed the extent of the Regensburg bombing mission, Part 4 is a decidedly less exciting episode, as the 100th deals not only with its success in the previous mission, but also its losses. It’s a change of scenery and pace from what I consider one of the […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 3) on Apple TV+

Posted: February 2, 2024 at 1:41 pm   /   Television Reviews

What a ride. While parts 1 and 2 of Masters of the Air were a bit of an introduction to the characters and a warm-up to how the 100th Bomber Group operated during World War II, part 3 is nothing less than the equivalent of the Omaha Beach scene from Saving Private Ryan, dropping the […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 1 & 2) on Apple TV+

If you were around during the late ‘90s and early 2000s, you’ll probably recall the massive influx of World War II video games and movies that suddenly became prevalent. Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Brothers in Arms, Enemy at the Gates, Windtalkers, U-571…a full list would take up an entire page. While WWII as […]

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 […]
