The Walking Dead Season 8 Final Grade

Apr 16, 2018 No Comments by

If The Wire and Breaking Bad are any indication, the ideal length for a television series is five seasons. The Wire was ambitious and unanimously praised for among other things bringing a complex, nuanced tale to our screens with a remarkable level of execution. It was like watching a really good novel manifest in our […]

The Walking Dead Season 8 Midterm Report Card

Dec 12, 2017 No Comments by

My final grade of the seventh season of The Walking Dead was my harshest one yet.  AMC’s hit show had found itself in a formulaic rut the result of which was a frustrating, structurally-flawed weekly hour of television.  As a huge fan and steadfast defender of the series’ better days, this reviewer grew weary of […]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Final Grade

Apr 03, 2017 1 Comment by

The Walking Dead’s seventh season is over and AMC’s smash hit shambles on.  Following this season’s first half—a stretch this reviewer considers the low point of the series, or the high point if you’re literally jumping over a shark—these most recent eight episodes have been a substantial improvement.  Although, that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement […]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Midterm Report Card

Dec 12, 2016 1 Comment by

AMC’s resounding smash hit has had several buzz-worthy moments through the years, but perhaps none more so than the cliffhanger of its sixth season.  With Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of our survivors lined up on their knees and confronted by the barbwire-wrapped baseball bat-wielding Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his acolytes known as […]

Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Review

Dec 12, 2016 2 Comments by

Ash vs Evil Dead—this reviewer’s inner-12-year-old’s dream show—is an oddity.  It’s most certainly light on plot and it panders with the lowest-hanging fruit that it can, but it’s also great fun, and it’s the true, direct descendent of the movies that we loved as kids.  It’s also by far the most viscerally disgusting thing that’s […]

The Walking Dead Season 6 Final Grade

Apr 04, 2016 No Comments by

The second half of The Walking Dead’s sixth season is in the books and AMC’s Sunday-night juggernaut continues to shamble forth and devour the competition. This semi-season is packed with high-stakes drama, darkness, and no-holds-barred collateral damage and while the series remains successful in those ways, it also fails just as spectacularly in a few […]

The X-Files Season 10: Just Put Me At Ease, Mr. Carter…

Mar 04, 2016 No Comments by

In high school, when The X-Files was in its original run, I had a friend who was a huge conspiracy buff. He was a devout Christian conservative; I was a more-or-less moderate atheist fascinated by Aztec religion. Between his conviction that the Book of Revelation predicted the rise of the New World Order, my troubling […]

We’re currently experiencing the golden age of television. Beginning around 15 years ago with stellar original programming from HBO, a television landscape populated with outstanding, high-concept series soon took shape as other premium networks such as Showtime followed HBO’s lead, then basic cable channels like AMC and FX got in on the action, and now […]

The Walking Dead Season 6 Midterm Report Card

Nov 30, 2015 No Comments by

Although much has been made about the fact that ratings have slipped at points during the latest season of AMC’s flagship drama The Walking Dead, the first eight episodes of its sixth season continue to be the monstrous pop-cultural phenomenon that no one saw coming back in 2010. Season 6 begins with our heroes still […]
