‘Dopesick’ Suffers From Similar Symptoms Of Docudramas, Hope It Gets Better Soon

I’m only three episodes in the Hulu limited series Dopesick about the opioid crisis involving Purdue Pharma but it has problems that are only kept together by the performances of the ensemble cast. And that ensemble cast is also its illness. There are six stories interconnecting here jumping back and forth over many years overContinue reading “‘Dopesick’ Suffers From Similar Symptoms Of Docudramas, Hope It Gets Better Soon”

The Verdict For ‘Only Murders In The Building’

This post contains spoilers. The Hulu black comedy series Only Murders in the Building couldn’t have come at a better time as we were enthralled in the case of Gabby Petito, a blogger who went missing over the summer and then her body was found in Wyoming murdered by strangulation. As I’m writing this, theContinue reading “The Verdict For ‘Only Murders In The Building’”

‘Muppets Haunted Mansion’ Cute But Not Top Form

Muppets Haunted Mansion on Disney-Plus is a nice, okay Halloween special but it does have some problems that does keep it from the highs of the Jim Henson era. I’m just going to get this out of the way right now, because it seems to be a lot of the criticism I’m seeing. Matt VogelContinue reading “‘Muppets Haunted Mansion’ Cute But Not Top Form”

‘Dug Days’ Funny, Cute Spinoff And Nice Swan Song For Ed Asner

Dug Days on Disney-Plus is a five-episode spinoff series of the movie Up that is a nice follow-up and a fitting unintentional tribune to the life of Ed Asner. There’s something about that scruffy little golden retriever Dug who was equipped with a voice collar and had an “Aw Shucks!” mentality that made him standContinue reading “‘Dug Days’ Funny, Cute Spinoff And Nice Swan Song For Ed Asner”

‘One Murders In The Building’ Is To Die For

I don’t listen to many podcasts. I don’t listen to any true-crime podcasts even though I know they’re very popular among many people. True-crime, itself, is a genre that is so popular all the major networks have or had weekly shows devoted to it. It’s all over the cable TV and streaming services. The popularityContinue reading “‘One Murders In The Building’ Is To Die For”

Bob Ross Documentary Paints A Different Picture Of His Legacy

The latest Netflix documentary on Bob Ross exposes something on the legacy of the famous painter that many of us didn’t know. But don’t worry. You’ll walk away with this with a new profound respect and sympathy for Ross. It’s no secret that family TV shows like Alf and Growing Pains were complete nightmares behindContinue reading “Bob Ross Documentary Paints A Different Picture Of His Legacy”

‘Dr. Death’ A Full Examination Of Narcissism

Dr. Christopher Duntsch is the type of doctor who probably would give the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele chills. If there was ever a true-life mad doctor, it would be Duntsch. But most movies or TV shows about mad doctors often portray them as vain physicians trying to make new headways in healthcare and medicine. They’reContinue reading “‘Dr. Death’ A Full Examination Of Narcissism”

Markie Post Was The Glue That Held ‘Night Court’ Together

Night Court is one of my favorite TV sitcoms. I think next to The Golden Girls and Seinfeld, I’ve seen each episode repeatedly over the years and never grow tired. I think the show helped frame my sense of humor when I was younger. The show focused on the strange characters and stranger cases thatContinue reading “Markie Post Was The Glue That Held ‘Night Court’ Together”

‘Reservation Dogs’ Has Some Bite

I’ve lived in Oklahoma since 2002. I didn’t grow up here but I grew up in northwest Georgia, which used to be the Cherokee Nation capital before the Trail of Tears forced many indigenous Native Americans to Oklahoma. I do have Cherokee ancestry, though. You don’t have to be an indigenous person or live inContinue reading “‘Reservation Dogs’ Has Some Bite”

John DeLorean Documentary Stalls But Still Reaches Its Finish Line

I’m only giving the TV docuseries Myth & Mogul: John DeLorean a favorable review only because it goes into such detail to tell us the man was such a crook and bad person. Like the docuseries on the Frye Festival, there’s so much you can listen to before you get the idea, but DeLorean wasContinue reading “John DeLorean Documentary Stalls But Still Reaches Its Finish Line”
