Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

It's been a while since I've written an obsessively enthusiastic recommendation of a TV show (I believe the last one was Hannibal, which is currently in its second season and continues to be amazing), and I think it's high time I revisited the genre.

Today, we're taking things in a whole other direction, and I am going to tell you about a show that I love… Continue reading Thunderbirds Are Go!

Why TV’s “Perfect Couples” Aren’t

There is a thing that I have noticed in television (mostly sit-coms) that bugs the shit out of me. I have noticed this in several TV shows, but the most current violator is one I've been watching from the beginning, How I Met Your Mother, so that is the one I am going to talk about.… Continue reading Why TV’s “Perfect Couples” Aren’t
