Glory (1989)

Glory is the story of a white liberal Bostonian Colonel who headed the first black regiment in the Union army.

Like most of this kind of worthy and well meaning historical dramas, Glory is a little patronizing and guilty of emotional manipulation, sometimes descending into schmaltz. 109 more words


TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.22 & 3.23, "Bureau"/"Greg and Larry"

I’ll say this about Brookly Nine-Nine‘s third season in a macro context: I liked it quite a bit overall and think that it’s solid with just a few rough patches here and there in its twenty three episode span. 43 more words


TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.21, "Maximum Security"

Quick, take a picture: It’s an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine that I didn’t out-and-out love.

This, of course, has happened before, and it is also worth noting that I would not exactly describe “Maximum Security” as “bad” as much as “disappointing,” and perhaps “stunted.” There aren’t that many episodes left in season three, and this feels like twenty minutes of unnecessary set-up, interrupted occasionally by wonderful character work by Stephanie Beatriz and outstanding joke delivery by the GOAT, Andre Braugher. 69 more words

TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.17, "Adrian Pimento"

“Guest stars have been a thing for Brooklyn Nine-Nine since the very beginning, when Stacy Keach, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Patton Oswalt showed up for one-offs, and Craig Robinson, Marilu Henner, and Kyle Bornheimer each stepped into limited but recurring roles. 73 more words


Television Tuesday :: Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the best show on TV fight me

By drift partner.

Primetime sitcoms aren’t generally where one might look to find subverted tropes, diverse casts, and genuinely funny jokes that don’t rely on a laugh track. 902 more words
