Westworld; I’m Swiping Left

I watched the entire first season of HBO’S Westworld, plus the second season opener, just to give it a thorough chance. This show is not for me. It’s not only not for me, I don’t see why the fans who … Continue reading

Television Tuesday, the Wednesday Edition: Krypton

I’ve started watching SyFy’s Superman prequel Krypton intermittently. The opening episode did not impress. It seemed predictable, and Seg-El, Kal-El’s grandfather (or great-grandfather, I’m not sure) was a conventional boring male character; cocky, mostly focused on how good-looking he was, … Continue reading

The Final Four: American Gods ReWatch, Season One

I finished watching all of Season One, and I find I have more quibbles with the final four episodes on a second viewing. I still enjoy the show; I am eager for Season Two, especially since Fuller and Green tried … Continue reading

American Gods, the Rewatch

I started re-watching American Gods (Starz). It’s probably too early and I may need to re-watched it again (three-watch it?) because Season Two will probably debut in April, 2018. So far I’m up to Episode 4, “Git Gone”, better known … Continue reading
