Review: Wicked Little Letters (2024)

I really liked this: it’s comedic in such a British way, eccentric, fantastic character actors, they just do this kind of thing so well. And we, frankly, do not. Comedy like this is IN them in a way it is … Continue reading

September/October 2023 Viewing Diary

I moved in late September. Again. I found a little cozy apartment, the second floor of a little house, with slanted ceilings, little cubbyhole-eaves everywhere, and a big yard. It’s a 10 minute walk to the beach. I found it … Continue reading

February 2023 Viewing Diary

Reboot (2022) Allison and I watched it together when I was in New York for the first half of this month. I adore this series and am so bummed it wasn’t picked up for Season 2. We had a blast … Continue reading
