Who Killed Rosie Larsen & Why I’d Watch It All Over Again

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Television, TV Reviews | Leave a comment

When it first premiered with online ads and television teasers hooking us with the prospect of a new Swedish noir-esque, radically different type of TV murder mystery, critics, fans, and everyone in-between were hooked.  It was heralded as combining the premise of Twin Peaks with the real-time element of 24 and the awkward buddy teaming of The X-Files.

TV Review: Veep

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Television, TV Reviews | 2 Comments

For back-to-back weeks HBO has unveiled new comedies. Both weeks the shows were driven by female lead characters. And both weeks the shows were very funny. Welcome to the post-Bridesmaids world. I for one like the trend as I actually think women have a higher capacity for new humor these days. Men have been making crude jokes on television for a long time. It’s hard to make improvements there. However women are having a comedic coming out party and I’m glad to see it.

Last night HBO unveiled its new political satire Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and my boy Tony Hale (Buster from Arrested Development). Based on the pilot, I think they are going to be the main driving forces in this show as there weren’t a lot of true laugh out loud moments. I was kind of hoping for more of a brilliantly written satire instead of having the jokes be more performance-driven but I still thought overall it was worth checking out and it did have some solid humor. Plus Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom doesn’t start until June 24th so I guess we’ll have to wait. Read more

TV Review: Girls

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Television, TV Reviews | Leave a comment

Children gather round.

Remember that time I did my first Netflix Streaming Suggestions? My third suggestion on that list was a little indie comedy called Tiny Furniture. Little did I know, there would be a new upcoming HBO show called Girls that was written and directed by the same person. I’d like to point out that I unknowingly was getting you all ahead of the curve! I doubt anyone listened to my suggestion then and actually watched the movie though so let me go on record again in recommending Tiny Furniture again. Let me also go on record saying I loved Lena Dunham’s Girls. Read more
