On May 17, 2015 the last episode of Mad Men was broadcast. It has been a very long year. Matthew Weiner and the writer’s room did an amazing job of leaving most of the Mad Men characters in a slightly happier place, but with enough of a bittersweet mixture of closure and uncertainty that the ambiguity […]

Hey there, people who aren’t watching—what’s keeping you? What’s your hesitation? This is damn fine TV. Okay, that’s it for communicating […]

YOU ARE ALIVE The Walking Dead is a maddening show. Not so much a “love to hate” show, but a show that can be loved and hated in almost equal measures. The Season 6 finale, Last Day on Earth, evidences both The Walking Dead’s best qualities and its worst ones in abundance. There was much […]

Marvel’s Jessica Jones – a Netflix Original.
