Top 10 TV shows of the decade

It’s pretty fair to say that over the course of the last decade, television as a medium has changed forever. In fact, there have been so many waves of change, not to mention the absurd amount of content produced, that you could say that maybe three decades have been mashed into the 2010s. First there […]

‘The Mandalorian’ readies, aims, misfires

Over a month ago Disney+, Disney’s new streaming service, sent everyone down a nostalgia rabbit hole when it put together a thread of all the content coming to their platform. Their upcoming supplemental original content seemed just as attractive, though. For “Star Wars” fans or Disney fanatics who signed up on the service’s first day, […]

HBO reenvisions ‘Watchmen’ for fresh new take

HBO knew what it was in for when adapting DC Comics’ “Watchmen” (1986–87). Depending on who you ask, Zack Snyder’s three-hour 2009 film adaptation is either genius or hot garbage, and the comic itself is revered by so many that showrunner Damon Lindelof had to either live up to an incredible merged vision of fiction […]

Soderbergh takes swing with ‘The Laundromat’

Steven Soderbergh takes on a lot in his newest film “The Laundromat” (2019). Based on the real story of the Panama Papers scandal, the film tells of just how the law firm Mossack Fonseca & Co. came crashing down. Soderbergh and frequent collaborative partner Scott Z.

‘Diego Maradona’ blends legend, truth

Every modern football fan has heard the stories of Diego Maradona: coming out of poverty in Argentina, the incredible goals, the controversy on the field, the insane life off it. Never before, though, besides maybe a clip or two from YouTube or archives, has the public seen much of the truth behind the legend. Not, at least, until […]

Between 2 pairs of shoes

There are many things of note in the new Netflix film “Between Two Ferns: The Movie” (2019). Mainly, ferns and comedians. It doesn’t veer away from its structure that made it a hit web series: Zach Galifianakis awkwardly interviews celebrities, the interviews sometimes descending into hostility. The premise is technically a thing that exists in […]

Emmy dates remain stagnant amidst television’s changing timeline

Fox will be televising the 71st annual Emmy Awards for television this Sunday. All of your favorite TV shows will likely get called: “Game of Thrones” (2011–2019), “Succession” (2018–), “Pose” (2018–), “Fleabag” (2016–2019), etc. We get it. There is an overflow of good television. Although this sounds like complaining, the copious level of quality television […]

‘Succession’ continues its impressive run

After an incredible first season, many wondered if there was any room to improve for HBO’s family drama “Succession” (2018–). Following a Murdoch-like family dealing with personal and professional issues, it grabbed national and critical attention thanks to its sharp dialogue and impressive ensemble. So far, season two has taken a similar approach to the […]
