Crop And Save
Crossing Jordan: Fire in the Sky (2004)
A Top Episode
Very well written, directed, acted, etc....
Any fan of this series would likely have this episode in their top 5 list. It would certainly be in mine.
This is not an episode that will leave you with a warm & fuzzy feeling. It's a heartbreaker.
Not so Hot Seat...
Where is the comedy? Nothing wrong with the premise but the direction of the show is horrible. Uninspired director? The delivery isn't on the money either. There was potential for more laughs but sadly they were squandered.
I'm being very generous with the 5 rating, as this was the best of the 3 episodes to date. Another below mediocre comedy.....so far.
Really the whole season of Atlanta has been just slightly above mediocre. Certainly not the standard they set in Seasons 1 & 2.
Writing was dismal for this episode. For me this was the least enjoyable episode from the whole series. Unusual can be good, but this show really fell flat. Maybe some liked it but for me it was a disappointment as a season finale.
ZIWE: Critical Race Theory (2022)
This topic has been done over & over again. The whole notion has been debunked. There was no valid reason to revisit this nonsense again.
No comedy, no entertainment value, no meaningful discussion, etc....
I gave the extra star for the American flag in the thumbnail. At least they got the country correct.
Let Me Tell You Something About....
Ahhhh.... the "men's support group episode". I really enjoyed this one. No it wouldn't be at the top of my list of my favorite in the series.
....but the scene when Allan comes home and see's the group is priceless.
Harry Dean Stanton steals this scene. (In a good way). What few lines he had, he had me laughing so hard I had to pause the show.
Just my two cents worth.
Flatbush Misdemeanors: peace (2021)
Really this has been a mediocre series through Season 1. Watchable but nothing special.
This episode was somewhat predictable from the beginning. Not the worst episode but near the bottom. Just my two cents worth.
There are two standout episodes for me in Season 1.
Camel Filters and Pheromones & Just Like Buffalo.
If you are offended by political incorrectness, this is not a show you'll enjoy. The scene with Charlie and "the women" at Judith's is worth the price of admission. No spoilers here. I'm confident you'll get lots of laughs from this classic Two and a Half Men episode.
Transplant: Free for What (2022)
Free from enjoyable
Sadly the writers/producers are running out of good ideas for the show. I'm really not sure many people are tuning in judging by the number of ratings.
This episode was a giant nothing-burger. Overly dramatic and overacted on the part of the cast. The writing has been going steadily downhill from the beginning of Season 2.
A 3 rating is the best I can do here. Maybe your experience was different.
The Porter: Episode #1.3 (2022)
Well clearly the writers were not gambling here as no chances were taken to put out an entertaining episode.
For me this was the weakest episode of the 3. Essentially not much happens of any significance.
It wasn't unwatchable but for me at least, it was not enjoyable.
The Last O.G.: Helping Is Hard (2021)
This is a mediocre series at best. There have been some decent laughs at times. I really don't care if things are realistic, so long as I laugh, I'm a happy camper.
This is a below average episode. Seems no effort was put in to this show from the writers, actors or producer.
I'd skip this one.
Elementary: The Latest Model (2019)
No spoilers for this one. A very good episode with an interesting "device". Nice job by the writers.
Well acted and directed. Not near the best episode of the series but an enjoyable watch.
Been there, done that, got the T-shirt
The same tired and misguided storyline. Different talking head this time. This nonsense has been debunked over and over again.
Absolutely nothing to see here. Hard to believe how far the mighty have fallen.
Absolutely not recommended in any way.
The Courtship: First Impressions (2022)
Missed the mark completely
This could have been an interesting sci-fi/romance show. Sadly this first episode was a clunker.
The portrayal of men being somewhat "boorish", for lack of a better word, is disingenuous to say the least. I'm sure there were complete gentlemen in any era.
Entertainment value was almost nil.
Maybe the next episode will be better.
See you in the operating place!
Another Simpson's classic. There are lots of laughs throughout the episode.
Homer diagnosis is clogged arteries and he needs a triple bypass surgery. Homer needs to turn to Dr. Nick who advertises, on an infomercial, any surgery for $129.95. Homer has no health insurance from the power plant and the operation goes from $30K to 40K. Homer failed in securing loans from Reverend Lovejoy & Rabbi Krustofsky.
The bit where Dr. Hibbert performs the "fat giggle test" on Homer is priceless.
Another great bit was Dr. Nick hearing an announcement over the intercom asking him to report to the morgue as the coroner is waiting to see him. Dr. Nick's response, "The coroner. I'm so sick of that guy. I'll see you in the operating place.
While performing surgery Dr. Nick starts singing his version of "Dem Dry Bones."
"The knee bones connected to the.......something.
The something's connected to the red thing.
The red thing's connected to my wristwatch. Uh oh!"
Easily in my top 5 episode from Season 4. A must see for any Simpson's fan.
There simply is no comedy in this TV special. It is simply beyond cringey. Aida is another, in the long line of new comics, that is unconventional. She doesn't go for the laugh. Applause are sufficient it seems.
The entertainment value here is zero.
I had to give the 2nd star for being so terrible but having the nerve to perform in front of a TV audience.
Not recommended in any way, shape or form.
No spoilers at all. Riveting in the sense that it is absolutely enlightening. This would definitely qualify in the must see category.
Harri Hursti is extremely qualified on the subject and lays everything out so anyone could understand.
Extremely highly recommended.
Star Trek: Discovery: Coming Home (2022)
A New Bar Has Been Set
I reviewed "Stormy Weather" from the current season, which was a terrible episode, and I really didn't think things could get worse.
Thanks writers, uninspired director, etc.....for making this easily the worst season finale of any Star Trek series. It isn't even close. Best I could do for any episode this season was 5 out of 10 and I was being generous.
Sad, so very sad.
The Last O.G.: Pilot (2018)
Really there's very little to laugh about in the premiere of the series. The leads overact to the point where it becomes cringey to watch.
The good news is things get better as the season rolls on. Still it is a mediocre show at best. Just my two cents.
Bob Hearts Abishola: Dud (2021)
The Title Is Appropriate
For a comedy, this episode was extremely thin on laughs. Nothing wrong with the plot but this was an episode that everyone seemed to be going through the motions.
In general, the writing for the show has always been just above mediocre. For this show even that slipped. Hope for more laughs next episode.
The Simpsons: Lisa's First Word (1992)
An excellent flashback episode from Season 4. One of the top episodes of the season. This show will keep you engaged throughout.
No spoilers here. An episode Simpsons fans of different generations can enjoy. The ending is excellent.
Andromeda: Exit Strategies (2001)
Can You Spare A Part Or Two
While not quite a good as the last episode, still a quality show with plenty to keep you interested.
No spoilers. Good action, well acted and a continuing storyline that is quite interesting. Season 2 is off to an excellent start.
A solid episode. For the record I prefer this series to the Power II & Power III shows.
No spoilers. Just well acted and played by the company of actors. Tommy sells his part extremely well throughout the series so far.
Everybody Loves Raymond: The Ball (1996)
Keep Your Kids Happy
Not spoiling anything here as in the summary you can see Ray has a fake Mickey Mantle autographed baseball that was given to him by his dad. How heartbreaking! His dad was just trying to keep his son happy.
Actually this is a very funny episode from Season 1. So far I'm through about a dozen episodes. So far "The Ball" and "Standard Deviation" have been the standout shows for me.
Shame I didn't see this series when it was airing about 25 years ago.
Reservation Dogs: Satvrday (2021)
Disappointing Season Finale
Every show has a clunker now and then. It's too bad it had to be the last episode of the season.
The acting has been better than average throughout Season 1. Sadly it fell off badly for this show. What they were selling I wasn't buying. Could be an uninspired director as well.
Rather than rising to the occasion for the finale, it seemed like everyone was going through the motions.
Best Episode So Far
The program is still quite new and finding its legs. This was the first episode I found myself laughing throughout. The delivery was quite impressive by the company of actors. Well written to boot. Kudos.
