    For All Mankind (2019) - Season 3

    Forgot to mention: The tall young woman who sought Jimmy Stevens out in the protest crowd to journey her conspiracy theorist group was played by Taylor Dearden, Bryan Cranston's daughter.

    For All Mankind (2019) - Season 3

    There is a tendency to venerate titans of industry like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, and this episode was a nice corrective on that. For all of the red tape and bureaucracy of a national space program, there are rules and there are protocols that aim to ensure rational and...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    There's definitely a strong contrast between Pike and captains like Picard and Janeway, who relied heavily on their executive officers when it came to personnel matters. In fact, given Number One's prickly demeanor, Pike probably has more of a personal relationship with most of the crew than...

    The Boys (Amazon Prime)

    Watched this week's episode early, since I wanted to save tomorrow night for Stranger Things 4, Vol. 2. Who is worse? Homelander, who is an unhinged psychopath with narcissistic personality disorder? Or Soldier Boy, who knows exactly what he's doing, but is an abusive asshole who comes with all...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    One other point I wanted to make: More often than not, I really appreciate the flawed, complex captains with a compelling mix of positive and negative traits. But right now, when the real world feels so tumultuous and disheartening, tuning in each week and getting to spend an hour with a...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    TOS had the Klingons, TNG had the Borg, DS9 had the Dominion, and it feels like the Gorn are shaping up to be the most impactful recurring villains on this show. And this episode was arguably the first time they've been photo-realistic, rather than bag CG (like "Enterprise") or an obviously...

    Disney+ Ms. Marvel (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

    Yeah, the timeline with that felt a bit shaky. I'm also not entirely sure how much time was supposed to have transpired between Kamala and her mom landing in Karachi and Kamala getting sucked into the past. Definitely at least two days, but I'm thinking it might have been longer with some little...

    Disney+ Ms. Marvel (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

    S01E04 - Seeing Red Two-thirds of the way through the first season, and this show feels both more expansive and more intimate than most of the other MCU Disney+ shows. It feels like there's a whole lot to wrap up in the remaining couple of episodes, but I still think this is the best paced show...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    The whole Ally Allston storyline has been muddled, and this wrap up was no exception. The rules of the merge and of Ally's powers were never really clearly established, so it was hard to understand the stakes of what was going on. That being said, if you have a whole bunch of nonsense that...

    Disney+ Hocus Pocus 2 (2022)

    The original movie always seemed to strike a weird note for me: Too scary for little kids, but too childish for older kids. I'm surprised Kenny Ortega isn't back to direct, since he's still very much active in the Disney content machine. Anne Fletcher seems like a good fit for the material...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    There was a non-corporeal alien lifeform living in the nebula. Yes. The non-corporeal alien lifeform, while extremely powerful, could only survive in the nebula. M'Benga's daughter was essentially a playmate of the non-corporeal alien lifeform. The terminal illness that was killing M'Benga's...

    Disney+ Ms. Marvel (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

    These college age Pakistani American twins are posting reaction videos for each episode, and I found them almost as entertaining as the episodes themselves:
