just saw Top of the Lake

I feel shaken to the core. I was about to have dinner, with lots of work to finish, when I decided I'll watch something on Netflix while I eat. I decided on Top of the Lake and thought to myself, "It's a Jane Campion television show. I might not even like the first episode. If ever…Read more just saw Top of the Lake

and then something comes…

I have a really bad habit of making pronouncements here on my blog and then, several entries later, I seem to have forgotten them as I report another life event or work situation that completely undermines my previous statements and declarations. I said a few entries ago that after this documentary and movie that I'm…Read more and then something comes…

The 100 and The Expanse: Nailing Their Fifth and Third Season, Respectively

I am so in love with these two shows. Both The 100 and The Expanse started rough but only got better after each new season and now they are absolutely enjoyable to watch for me.

It's one of my favorite shows, really.…Read more ‘The Crown’ continues to shine on its second season (InterAksyon)

‘The Punisher’ saves the Marvel Television Universe (InterAksyon)

Jon Bernthal is amazing in The Punisher. His performance really drives the show. We all knew that from season 2 of Daredevil, especially when his storyline was more intriguing than the Elektra storyline, which felt like what the show was really focusing on and Frank Castle was just the counterpoint. While my brother loved the show, I…Read more ‘The Punisher’ saves the Marvel Television Universe (InterAksyon)
