Based on the life of Deborah Sampson, a woman from Massachusetts who disguised herself as a man in order to join the Continental Army and fight for her country’s independence during the Revolutionary War.
Based on a true story focuses on odd, reclusive and self-proclaimed “hacker” Mark Karpeles, who after becoming infatuated with the concept of digital currency, navigated his way to become owner of one of the largest bitcoin exchanges in the world, only to become the linchpin in the fourth largest heist in the history of mankind.
When American Crime Story first began I would say that there were three iconic moments from the O. J. Simpson. One was the White Bronco car chase. The other was exactly where I was when the verdict was read live over the airwaves. The third was the gloves… O. J. trying on the gloves.
One sausage decides to lead a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.
We’ve come to the second to last episode of the first season of USA’s Colony. There are still many questions, but a couple storylines did come to a head in this episode, leaving me wondering what surprises are left for the finale next week.
Last night’s episode of Colony gave us a couple Lost-esque moments. Were they “We have to go back, Kate!” moments? No. But they wet the pallet enough for me to believe the show can perhaps get close to that one day.
The first part of the two-part season finale of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia brought some big laughs and one huge character moment you either saw coming years ago or were completely surprised by.
Who are you rooting for? What’s keeping me on the edge of my seat despite knowing how it all concludes is how surprising it is when I am suddenly realizing I’m sympathizing with a character I didn’t think I would.
Spotlight, Room and Beasts of No Nation all pull multiple awards at this years gala, while the Independent Spirit Awards continue to separate themselves from tomorrow’s Academy Awards!
Stuff is about to go down in the world of Colony. If they can sprinkle in some actual sci-fi for me in the final three episodes and keep up this level of storytelling, I’ll be happy.
It surprises me that it’s taken this long for us to get a straight St. Paddy’s Day themed episode of It’s Always Sunny seeing as their pub is named Paddy’s and the Gang basically treats every day like an Irish drinking festival anyway.
One gripe I’ve heard about this show so far is that it’s not clear whose story this is. However, I am enjoying every piece of this ever-moving story and the latest episode, “100 Percent Not Guilty” was perhaps the best yet.
Last night’s episode of USA’s Colony gave us a lot to chew on. In ways, it was the heartiest episode yet.
And just like that, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is back on track, though mostly due to supporting cast. And every time I finish an episode thinking, “That was actually really funny,” I’m astounded that a show so deep into its run can still make me feel that way.
Logline: The lone survivor of a masked-slasher massacre attends a remote post-traumatic stress disorder clinic where she meets four other girls who have also survived similar attacks and must fight for her survival when all five of their masked slashers converge on the isolated clinic to kill each other’s “last one alive.
Things are heating up in the Los Angeles bloc and the Green Zone alike, as questions about Phyllis’s brutal murder cause Will to take a close look at his own wife, Katie. The episode felt strong for mid-season, with hints of great drama to come in clashes between principal characters.
And thus the great disparity of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been made perfectly clear. How high their highs can be and how “meh” their lows.
If you were over the age of five in 1994 when the American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson events actually happened, the episode title probably gives away what this installment focuses on. Does a white Ford Bronco ring a bell?
Well this series is definitely blurring the lines of who to root for. Obviously the “Visitors” aka alien invaders are the big baddies, but they have yet to be revealed on the show. So we’re left watching our fellow humans running around, scrambling to get the upperhand.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has never been nominated for an Emmy, nor have any of its cast. But after last night’s episode, they must consider Glenn Howerton for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for his role as Dennis.
When I first heard of FX’s latest, American Crime Story, and that it was to be focusing on the infamous O.J. Simpson trial, I was skeptical. I’m pretty excited to report that they pretty much nailed it.
In the weeks leading up to the Oscars, we’ll be looking back at some of our reviews for this year’s Best Picture nominees. Today, we’re revisiting Wil Loper’s review of Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, which is up for six awards.
This week’s episode of USA’s new series Colony was a step back in the right direction after a mostly “meh” second episode. Don’t mistake me, I wasn’t blown away, but they planted some interesting story seeds this episode that have me curious enough to keep following.
I can’t think of three back to back episodes I’ve enjoyed as much on first watch as I did the first three episodes of season eleven of Sunny. But the fourth episode felt disjointed and short on laughs.
The second episode of a series can make or break a show. The pilot, a single dot on a chart, can stand or fall on its own. But once the second episode airs, lines must connect to plot a clear direction. Unfortunately I’m not sure that this episode sends us in the best direction.
Yes. After eleven seasons, we got the best/worst sex scene Sunny fans have ever experienced. And I’m not even sure it was real. Let me explain.
Aliens. Okay, yeah we’ve seen it before, we’ve even seen it in Los Angeles before. Many times. But this is less a story of the invasion than it is about the occupation. What happens after the invasion, or as the characters in this story call it, The Arrival.
A strong episode! On to the next, but will the Sunny gang follow along this path of revisiting past gags that worked for them? We shall see.
I’ll start this review of the premiere episode of the eleventh season of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia with the obligatory: The Gang is back!
