Its a very concise and illuminating documentary for both the fans who know everything and those who have no facts only know the name of monty python, both will find it pleasant but neither will call it perfect.
It does not try to explain how BIG python was that is probably the only thing you need to know before watching this show… Full Review »
Low Budget Version of "The Good Wife"

Awkward, stuttering, and lame. Except for Christine Baransky the acting is uniformly bad. The acting is bad because the direction is bad. The direction is bad because the writing is bad. The set design is hampered by the lack of budget; it's bleak and colorless, in stark contrast to the expansive richness of "Wife". The difference to the movie-quality production values of "Wife" couldn't sharper. The smoothly confident yet grippingly compelling scene construction that characterized "Wife" is utterly missing. The whole production, from top to bottom, has a slap-dash, phoned-in quality. As if to make up for the all of the gaping deficits, what were once details of background characters, such as alternative and interracial lifestyles, are now shoved prominently into the foreground. Strain is evident in every scene. All of the new leads are hopeless miscast. The show won't get a second season.… Full Review »
Taboo lives up to its name. Tom Hardy is all grit with a touch of steamy sex and swagger. One moment you are rooting for Delaney and the nextTaboo lives up to its name. Tom Hardy is all grit with a touch of steamy sex and swagger. One moment you are rooting for Delaney and the next you feel sorry for those that stand in his path. I love that you have to listen/pay attention to the dialogue and allow it to beguile and submerge you into its intrigue. Don't leave the room for a moment or you will miss intricate details. There isn't a predictable element to this series. As it twists and turns through the complex and tortured Delaney's plan you find yourself longing for more insight into his past. Just when you think he is **** crazy he turns around and does something almost chivalrous. Love it!… Full Review »

This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I'm not picky when it comes to TV shows and this is right up my ally, I would even go so far as to say I was hoping for a "Kyle XY" cheese. I appreciated the early and mid season, to my surprise this is when most critics seemed displeased, but the show really lost me in the last few episodes. There is good drama and then there cheesy drama; the drama that is beyond common logic, the "instead of doing something about the problem, we admit to the inevitability of it and talk about our feelings followed by the absolute resolve to never let them go only to...let them go" drama, ya it is that bad. Furthermore, I feel like the writers couldn't make up their minds as to who they wanted the main character's love interest to be so they just went with three, that is right, he has three intimate relationships in just one season. To credit, they did get rid of the most uninteresting one early on but had already wasted enough screen time to make it frustrating yet liberating that the most uninteresting side character was removed so inconclusively. I'll get back to his second love interest. His third love interest and what was assumed to be the most relevant and yet turned out to be the most dissatisfying pretty much ended with them sleeping together only to be separated by morning, I mean who wouldn't take a gun shot to leave after a one-night stand? The second love interest was probably the most shallow relationship with a "I remember you" make out scene and plenty of "I care about you" moments but so little intimacy you would assume they were "just friends" but by the end of the season you really can't tell who he is with or if he is just with them both. In the entire season, so little of the story is actually explained that you can't help but feel the season cliffhangers are the same mysteries as the whole season feeling like nothing actually happened. I was surprised to see this show get renewed for a second season and I will probably watch season two in hopes of improvement but I won't be expecting much.
TLDR: If you are bored and have nothing to do, sure, but otherwise don't bother watching it.… Full Review »
