Sharp Objects Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Vanish

Wow, this is going to be a slow and heavy show. If you’re familiar with Gone Girl, the famous book turned movie staring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, then you might have an inkling of what to expect from Sharp Objects. I’ve read both Gone Girl and Dark Places and was only impressed with the…

Clay Jensen and the Manic Pixie Dream Girl

I’ve just finished the second season of 13 Reasons Why, and overall I am happy with how the writers and producers handled the issues season one created. Regardless if you watched the Netflix show or not, it started a conversation about mental health and toxic environments that did not exist in popular culture before.

Netflix’s Fullmetal Alchemist a Full On Flop

In this first…

The Magicians Episode 307 Review: Poached Eggs

When it comes to brunch, poached is exactly how I like my eggs – but this week’s episode of The Magicians, “Poached Eggs” didn’t work for me. Last week was disjointed, and the theme continued into this week with this set-up episode. Julia and Alice confront and solve the problems they created last week with…
