  • Empire: 2.10 Et Tu, Brute? Review

    Wednesday’s episode of Empire was probably the best one that I’ve seen this entire season. It was well written, well acted, and very well done. There was a good amount of character growth for Cookie, and I think that they touched on a number socially relevant topics. I, for...
  • Red Oaks: 1.9 The Bar Mitzvah and 1.10 Labor Day Review

    This week’s episodes mark the end of the 5-week journey that is my review of Amazon’s Red Oaks, and also the end of season 1. They are the emotional climax and conclusion of the entire first season. Get ready for the feels. In “The Bar Mitzvah”, Karen finds out...
  • Empire: 2.9 Sinned Against Review

    After last week’s episode of Empire, I wasn’t expecting this week’s to be all that great. I wasn’t even expecting to like Alicia Keys’ appearance. However, this episode turned out to be way better than my expectations. This week’s review was a lot more than I had intended, so...
  • Red Oaks: 1.7 Body Swap and 1.8 After Hours Review

    This week on Red Oaks, we get an homage to an 80s classic, and spend some time in the Big Apple. Misty and Wheeler get some time alone, and David and Skye happen. I continue to feel conflicted about all of it. “Body Swap” can be considered the Freaky...
  • Empire: 2.8 My Bad Parts Review

    I enjoyed this week’s episode of Empire, just like I knew I would. Was the drama too contrived? Yes, but the hype was worth it. It’s Hakeem Lyon versus Freda Gatz in a battle for . . . Lucious’ love? I’m not sure exactly. It doesn’t matter though, the...
  • Red Oaks: 1.5 Fourth of July and 1.6 Swingers Review

    I feel like Red Oaks does not hit its stride until episodes 5 and 6. They were so good that I had to go look up the directors. Hal Hartley directed “Fourth of July”, and Nisha Ganatra directed “Swingers”. If you only ever watch two episodes of Red Oaks,...
  • Empire: 2.7 True Love Never Review

    Lucious Lyon continues to be a horrible father. He is an absolute hypocrite whose music has stagnated because of his inability to deal with his past. He can’t even truly be happy for his own son. It is scary how well Terrence Howard plays this role. Again, I am...
  • Red Oaks: 1.3 The Wedding and 1.4 MDMA

    Amazon’s comedy about the 80s is definitely worth the laughs, and you’ll love all of the likable supporting characters. I’m only 4 episodes in, so I don’t know if I’ll ever like David, but there’s still time. In “The Wedding”, David assists Barry in taping a wedding at the...
  • Empire: 2.6 A High Hope for a Low Heaven Review

    I love Taraji P. Henson, and if it were not for her, I would have never bothered to watch Empire. It’s a great idea, there’s a lot of great talent, but drama that too closely mirrors real life has always been too much for my blood. However, this year...
