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 […]

Impressions: M*A*S*H- Baby, It’s Cold Outside

M*A*S*H is a war dramedy that follows the antics of a surgical hospital placed close to the front lines of the Korean War. It was adapted from the 1970s film of the same name and ran for an impressive 11 seasons from 1972 to 1983. A major theme about MASH is that while it was […]

Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- Sticks and Stones

Hello everybody. I hope you are ready to take another quick trip back to Cabot Cove because I would like to write about another Murder She Wrote episode. Season 2, episode 10 is called Sticks and Stones, and it stands out to me in the series for a few reasons, notably who the killer ends […]

Impressions: Azumanga Daioh

Before we deep dive into this, I need to get something out of the way. This otherwise bright show has one major dark spot, Mr. Kimura. This openly… something… for high school students trope is sadly something that shows up in some anime as the attitude toward it is slightly different. I will not go […]

Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- A Lady in the Lake

So this is sort of an interesting Murder, She Wrote episode in that it both is and isn’t a Cabot Cove one. Technically the episode takes place outside of Cabot Cove, with Jessica staying at a rather nice hotel to get away and write for a while. However, it is close to Cabot Cove, so […]
