  1. That’s one review about Michael Gladis’ Feed The Beast… But here’s a great one from The Wall Street Journal: . Urge the Basketcases to view and judge for themselves.
    Thanks all.
    Full disclosure: I’m Michael’s Dad.

    • Thanks for the additional review. By the way, congratulations on having such a talented son!

      • Thank you Polly. LOL! I may have been a part of bringing him to this earth :-), but Michael has worked hard and sacrificed a lot to achieve his successes. I am very proud of him. But thank you for your kind comments about him. From a MAD MEN perspective, that entire cast was amazing! Not a weak link in the bunch!

    • We adore your son here at the Basket, but that’s actually 2 reviews, and I saw several others I didn’t link to. We do strive for honesty. I’m glad the WSJ likes the show, though.

      • Thank you very much Deborah. You are correct and thorough – and honest – as always, And BoK has been a huge supporter of Michael. Thank you! Yes, industry reviewers for the most part have not been kind to Feed The Beast (only about 23% positive according to Rotten Tomatoes). For obvious reasons, I remain optimistic that, especially as the show develops its themes and characters over the season, actual viewers will give it a fair shot. And maybe their response to the show might overcome the critics’ initial assessments. And there are no smarter and more independent-thinking TV fans than those of Basket of Kisses. Thanks again!
