  • Ted Lasso – Or Why You Are Watching the Wrong TV Shows

    In this lecture, I will be outlining precisely why Ted Lasso is one of the finest shows on TV, and if you haven’t seen it, will demonstrate why you are watching TV entirely incorrectly. I will be dodging spoilers as far as possible, but the odd one from the...
  • The Problem with Castle Rock was the Town Itself

    Unless you’ve been living under a (castle) rock you know that Castle Rock has been cancelled. The Stephen King anthology series mixed and matched characters, locations, and plot points from the authors’ works for two seasons on Hulu. Essentially, it tried to be a horror version of Fargo but...
  • The Mess & Kid Buu

    Season Nine is, in a word, a mess. A meandering mixture of interesting, inexplicable, cool and downright ridiculous twists and turns. It feels aimless at times because it simply doesn’t have the overarching structure that most of the other seasons had to keep it focused. We get to a...

  • Why Fargo’s Lorne Malvo is One of TV’s Greatest Villains

    A briefcase full of money. A failed extortion attempt. Ordinary folk getting more than they bargained for when submerging themselves in criminality. An inciting incident leading to a cacophony of violence and misunderstanding. That’s the Coen Brothers way, whether serious, like No Country for Old Men, or absurd, such...
