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 Die sort of went down the same path, although in … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- Right to Die

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 of an incredible cast, sadly most of which have passed … Continue reading Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- The Dinner Party

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 threads, as I said in the last piece. Two of … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- Homecoming

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 to the seasons seem to vary, but when talking about … Continue reading Impressions: Dexter Season 3

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” ending of there being a twist or something open, and … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- Pick Me Up

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 from an investigative journalism show, in which an anchor, Kevin … Continue reading Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- Obituary for a Dead Anchor

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 a dramedy based on a movie of the same title, … Continue reading Impressions: M*A*S*H- Preventative Medicine

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 set in the Korean War, a lot of the anti-war … Continue reading Impressions: M*A*S*H- Baby, It’s Cold Outside

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 up being. But I am getting ahead of myself. Sticks … Continue reading Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- Sticks and Stones

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 into a long thing about it and the different cultures … Continue reading Impressions: Azumanga Daioh
