Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- Christmas and the Hard Luck Kid

I thought for this month, we’d try to be a bit on theme and kick off with a Mary Tyler Moore Christmas episode. Christmas and the Hard Luck Kid is the 14th episode of the first season. It is a fun episode, and while it does manage to bring Christmas spirit, it is not overly […]

Impressions: Bob’s Burgers- Best of Thanksgiving

Bob’s Burgers is one of the few shows I know of that regularly still does Thanksgiving episodes. It didn’t happen every year in the early seasons but lately has become a regular feature of the show. Largely and understandably, because Bob is obsessed with the holiday as a chef. There are a lot of great […]

Impressions: Ted Lasso Season 2 and Missed Messages

So recently, I was listening to a podcast, and Ted Lasso came up, and most of the people on the podcast took a pretty negative stance in regards to this show. It’s not an uncommon take. From the outside, Ted Lasso looks like an overly positive show where a good attitude is what saves the […]

Impressions: Masters of Horror- Right to Die

So I am not going to lie – one of the interesting parts about going through this series for me has been the little bits of callbacks to big things that happened during the early 2000s. I talked about this with the Homecoming episode, which was very much in your face about it. Right to […]

Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- The Dinner Party

In light of the recent passing of the great Ed Asner, I decided to give The Mary Tyler Moore Show a watch (I had seen a decent amount of episodes prior, but this is my first full watch-through). Mr. Asner played the rough but lovable Lou Grant in the show and was one of many […]

Impressions: Masters of Horror- Homecoming

I spoke in my first Impressions of a Masters of Horror shortly about the series overall. A brief overview, it was a series that ran for two seasons on Showtime. Each entry was a horror short given to us by a “master of horror” director. They are entirely standalone, but there were a few common […]

Impressions: Dexter Season 3

So this is a bit odd and out there for my usual Impressions. However, I recently rewatched this season, and I think it’s a bit underappreciated. Season 1 was a great start, 2 people really enjoyed the FBI hunting Dexter, and season 4 is rightfully praised because of John Lithgow’s fantastic performance. After that, reactions […]

Impressions: Masters of Horror- Pick Me Up

Masters of Horror was an anthology horror series that ran for two seasons on Showtime. The premise was simple enough, horror “masters” (directors) would film a short, generally an hour in length. There are some threads that connect the series to each other; for instance, a lot of the episodes have the “The Twilight Zone” […]

Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- Obituary for a Dead Anchor

So I am officially done with trying to excuse that I have exclusively picked Cabot Cove episodes thus far when reviewing this show. I like them. I wish there were more of them. I digress. Obituary for a Dead Anchor was episode 9 of season 3 of Murder, She Wrote. It starts with a clip […]

Impressions: M*A*S*H- Preventative Medicine

I thought I would take another dive into M*A*S*H with this week’s Impressions on Preventative Medicine, another season 7 episode, although this one much heavier than our last. For a longer introduction to the MASH show, you can check out the start of my Impressions of Baby, It’s Cold Outside here. For now, M*A*S*H is […]
