Ranking Every Episode of Breaking Bad Season 1 From Worst to Best

2nd Viewing; SPOILER WARNING! Admittedly, I was never supposed to rewatch Breaking Bad at this very time. I wanted to do some research for my media writing project, so I decided to revisit the pilot episode of the show to gain inspiration, but as one may expect, I got sucked in. It’s been more than […]

Quick-Thoughts: The Boys Season 2

Spoilers Warning for Season 1 of The Boys (Not Season 2) The last-minute ex-machinas and mcguffins have nearly doubled in the second season of The Boys.

Quick-Thoughts: Harley Quinn (2019-2020) Seasons 1 & 2

3 years ago, Warner Bros. released a spin-off to the acclaimed The LEGO Movie, that being The LEGO Batman Movie—a film that utilized its unusual circumstances of blending Batman into the culture of this imaginative toy manufacturer, to invent something that felt very much like a parody of Batman rather than a straightforward tale of […]

A Review of All Ten Episodes of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Dekalog (1988)

Dekalog I  “I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” – The First Commandment The absolute has always been dangerous ever since humankind first thought that they could somehow deduce it.

Twin Peaks The Return Re-review (Written in the Style of its Creator)

2nd Viewing A horror, a comedy, a mystery. A family drama, a sci-fi, an action. Adventure is forever and musicals live on. With the abstract and parodying, we are.  “I am dead, yet, I live.” “Is this future, or is it past?” “When you get there, you will already be there.” But, you can’t just […]

HBO’s Watchmen (2019) Mini-Series is a Substantially “Adequate” Sequel to Alan Moore’s Graphic Novel

The Following Review is Spoiler-Free I’m a bit fed up with people recently treating the subject of “racism” as an “only for political reasons” commodity in entertainment media. Why can’t a movie/TV show just simply explore the topic of xenophobia without being called SJW propaganda? If your only argument is, “oh, because it uses white […]

Quick-Thoughts: Better Call Saul Season 4 (2018)

WARNING: Spoilers for Better Call Saul Seasons 1-4 Better Call Saul season 4 continues the show’s strengths in building divine character pieces that even legendary tales would struggle to vie against.

The Top 10 Best Episodes of Mr. Robot

I had 45 episodes to choose from the grand vault of Mr. Robot’s entirety to place onto this Top Ten list, and believe me, it took a while to comprise.
