Love & Mercy

Brian Wilson was the songwriter and leader of the Beach Boys. His talent was not always appreciated by his abusive father and it led to him having a mental breakdown that affected him for years. In the 1980s, he was being overly medicated by a scheming psychotherapist. During this...

New Summer TV Comedies: July 2015

I think all of these shows look good. I could probably ignore Impastor but want to watch the rest of them. Also, Hannibal Buress debuted last week, but I wasn’t able to finish this post in time before heading out of town....
