A couple of Workaholics can't liven up a listless Ghosted

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 07:18:40 GMT

(image)

“Ghost Studz” commits a lot of little sins on its way to a mediocre finish line, but the worst has gotta be promising a capital-R Reckoning from Lennon Parham and then failing to deliver. Parham’s not the most high-profile guest star on tonight’s episode—that goes to Workaholics Blake Anderson and Anders Holm,…

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 06:20:00 GMT

(image)

Charles Manson, one of the lingering boogeymen of the 20th Century, has died. A failed songwriter, cult leader, and convicted murderer, Manson successfully forced himself into the pop culture landscape of the latter half of the century, both directly, through his bizarre association with the Beach Boys and his…

Curb Your Enthusiasm flips the tip, then the script of Larry’s life

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 04:14:00 GMT

(image)

Where Larry’s lack of fucks about most niceties has been harnessed for the benefit of his friends in the past, it’s his persnicketiness that becomes his saving grace in “Never Wait For Seconds!” By coming to a stranger’s defense—over brunch, no less—he sets his own redemption into motion, and also brings the fatwa…

The Last Man On Earth bides its time before the midseason home stretch

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 04:00:00 GMT

(image)

There are exactly two interesting elements in this week’s Last Man On Earth: 1) It marks Kristen Schaal’s directorial debut, and with a script credited to her husband Rich Blomquist; 2) Tandy switches up his usual “Closure” song with an acoustic rendition of Mötley Crüe’s “Girls, Girls, Girls” for a wedding, which is…

The Belchers save the day in a well done Thanksgiving episode

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 03:15:00 GMT

(image)

Bob’s Burgers does incredibly well with holiday episodes. When your regular reviewer, Brianna Wellen, asked my to fill in this episode, I was happy to do so. Bob’s Burgers routinely weaves sentimentality and the mediocre reality of the holiday season. Last year’s “The Quirkducers” wasn’t just memorable for its…

The Walking Dead checks in with the baddies on an overlong but interesting episode

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 03:15:00 GMT

(image)

Every so often, The Walking Dead can still surprise you. Father Gabriel is one of those surprises. Introduced back in the fifth season as a deeply broken man, Gabriel has gone from terrified and despairing to despairing and terrified to sort of hopeful to terrified again, and so on. While Seth Gilliam is a strong…

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 02:59:00 GMT

(image)

The backlash against Lena Dunham’s since-retracted message of support for a Girls writer accused of sexual assault deepened today, when a writer for Dunham’s Lenny Letter newsletter openly denounced her now-former boss. Novelist Zinzi Clemmons posted a long letter on Twitter early this morning, calling for “women of…

Outlander uses a magical goat lady to solve its problems

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 02:00:00 GMT

The trickiest part of sustaining a long-running adventure narrative is keeping the characters alive. Their lives have to be consistently believably perilous, otherwise it wouldn’t be much of an adventure. But they also have to believably survive those perilous conditions, otherwise the story ends. Often, this means…

Damn it, tech bros, don't try to "disrupt" tipping

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 00:36:00 GMT

(image)

Look, we get that the bullshit surrounding the practice of tipping can suck, especially in industries—most notably food service in the U.S.—where it’s implemented in place of paying workers an actual living wage. Tipping can be awkward, it’s mathematically inconvenient, and it’s rife with opportunities for shitty…

Even though Future Man could send its characters anywhere in time and space, one of the show’s best episodes so far is also the closest thing it’s had to a bottle episode, taking place almost entirely in the Futturman house. With just 28 minutes until Jeri’s head blows up (or, roughly the length of an episode of…

It’s a gloomy day in Superhero Land—the United States version of it, anyway—as the domestic box office figures for Warner Bros.’ massive, much-hyped Justice League came in today, revealing that the Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon superhero brawl had the weakest U.S. opening weekend out of any of the studio’s D.C.

A standout Punisher episode knows war is hell

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 16:00:00 GMT

(image)

It turns out showing is more effective than telling. “Kandahar” revisits a lot of the same backstory as the previous episode, but it does so in flashback form rather than having characters just sit around and talk about what happened. That’s a far stronger choice, not only because the flashbacks are more immediately…
