    Survivor: Winners at War

    Kim Spradlin is a pro's pro at this game - I was surprised she wasn't able to read the room on she played her idol. But I'm glad she's still in the game. She's the only one left that I'm rooting for.

    Survivor: Winners at War

    Giants being slain left and right. Which I wouldn't mind except for the fact that it happened as a result of a random tribe swap a couple of weeks ago that undercut their strategy and alliances. You've got some of the best players in the history of the game - why not just let them play? That...

    Survivor: Winners at War

    My guess is that Sandra, like Rob, has built enough cache in the game that even when they should be at the top of the vote list, other players are still hesitant to make the move because it might backfire.

    Survivor: Winners at War

    FIre Tokens? Really? You've assembled a cast of former winners, and instead of letting them just have at it you introduce even more unnecessary gimmicks?

    Supergirl - season 5 (The CW)

    New post-Crisis earth - same old dull stories. Lex and Lena should not be the only intriguing characters worth watching on a show called Supergirl.

    Star Trek: Picard - Season One - CBS All Access - starring Patrick Stewart

    I was really looking forward to this, but the recent Variety interview with Patrick Stewart has me concerned. He said one of the themes will be a response to the current 'refugee crisis' going on, particularly in the U.S. I know that viewing current event social issues through a sci-fi lens is...

    Ozzie & Harriet Release From Sam Nelson?

    Watching the Mill Creek set that includes the original commercials on many episodes really adds to the viewing experience. The Kodak Christmas spots are my favorites ("Open me first!"). At the other end of the spectrum, the Aunt Jemima pancake ads are very strange.

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    It was a lackluster season with a lackluster winner, overshadowed by dubious allegations that prompted the show to basically delete one player from the season, without any chance to offer his side of the story. The fact that two other players skipped the reunion because they wouldn't throw Dan...

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    As an early victim of cancel culture (following his own controversial incident with Zeke) I'm not surprised that Varner is coming to Dan's defense. But if what he says is true about the cast being more supportive of Dan than Kellee, and the final pre-tape being CBS's way of hiding that from the...

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    Hate to be the doubter here - but this is a show with cameras everywhere and they don't have footage of this alleged 'incident'? Maybe he's what they said he is, and if so good riddance. Or maybe Kellee just exaggerated some personal space issues, which were built into a huge 'me too' moment...

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28 returns to ABC 9/16/19

    What a humdrum season finale. In past seasons there were bigger production numbers and location shooting at the Grove, all decked out for the holidays. All of the couples voted out would get a final dance together. The freestyles always were the most entertaining performances of the season. None...

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28 returns to ABC 9/16/19

    I used to look forward to watching this show as much, if not more, than any other current series, scripted or unscripted. And after a full year off I figured I'd be eager to return to the ballroom. But this season has just not been very interesting. Part of this I'm sure is fatigue from 20-some...

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    My only comment on the Dan situation is that we were shown a lot of footage of Kellee and some of the other women talking about his actions (sincerely or insincerely) but were shown very little video evidence of it - on a show where there are cameras always running 24/7. Some of the incidents...

    Batwoman - season 1 (The CW)

    I'm an easy audience for superhero stuff, but I bailed on this show halfway through the third episode. Between this and "Gotham" and "Pennyworth," I'm just burned out on almost-Batman shows. Either give us a real one or stop trying to make supporting characters carry a series.

    Supergirl - season 5 (The CW)

    I still enjoy the occasional moments in each episode when Supergirl shows up. Someday maybe they'll build a whole series around that character.
