Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Episode 7 - "Toldja"

As disparate this season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been, and despite my being the only person in the fandom to feel disappointed by last week's episode, I'm overall digging what I see. Even though I couldn't tell you what this season is...

Review: The Umbrella Academy

Imagine this: one day, you’re a person who’s totally not pregnant, not even a drop, minding your own biz-ness, enjoying some beach weather, and then, wham-o, the next and you’re full-term about to burst, like Jesus or...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downward t...

Review: Inhumans (Season 1)

Well, I did it. I watched the whole thing. A few weeks ago, I wrote (well, ranted) about my impressions of the first two episodes of Inhumans. I’m not, frankly, all that confident I have much to say about the thing as a whole that&rsq...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. Its a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its deli...

Review: The Defenders (Season 1)

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first came to Netflix it seemed like such a great idea. Four individual series of shows focused on more grounded heroes eventually coming together in a small scale, Avengers-like fashion. But the exci...

The Simpsons Season 27 Premiere Review: Stunt Gone Wrong
