Dear Netflix

Dear Netflix: I thought you were different. I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Netflix brand almost from the start. Well before on-line viewing became more the norm than the exception. Well before your original content made you a serious threat to cable TV. You created binge watching, everyone’s new favorite way to watch TV. […]

Travelers Season 1

Canada is once more proving that they’ve got game when it comes to science fiction television shows. This joint Canadian/Netflix venture was an easy binge watch with an instantly hooky premise and a great cast. So sometime in the future, things are bad. “Travelers” jump back to modern time by rewriting the brain of some […]

Sense 8 Season 2

It’s been almost two years since I reviewed “My New Favorite Scifi Series: Sense8” I made no bones about it, I love, love loved this show! I rewatched it 3 times in the summer of 2015, checked daily for news of its renewal, and felt the greatest relief of my life when they announced it had gotten […]

Haven: Season 1

4/5 stars I started watching this show with my 11-year-old son a few weeks ago and we’ve been enjoying it a great deal. He might be enjoying it more than me, but then, a lot of the show’s tropes are fresher for him. 🙂 You’ve got your basic cop/paranormal drama set in a small town […]

Lemony Snicket Season 1

Finally, a Netflix original show that is not only great entertainment for me, but great to watch with the whole family! The Series of Unfortunate Events is based on the bestselling books, which I have not read. But I don’t feel like I missed anything by going straight to the cinematic adaptation. These shows were […]

Netflix Original: The Magicians (Season 1)

Short review: Never mind, my feelings are too complicated for a short review. Long review: I didn’t like this show at first. In fact, I’m not entirely sure why I watched past the first few episodes. My husband suggested that the show had a good premise and, much like with Charmed or Heroes, I kept […]
