Spring TV: True Story Dramas

Both of these true story dramas are getting decent reviews with The Terror getting the better of the two with some great action sequences and an excellent cast. Trust has also received positive reviews, mostly for Brendan Fraser who plays a minor character, but critics wish he was in it more....

Spring TV: True Crime

If you are interested in the true crime genre, Marcia Clark Investigates The First 48 should be right up your alley. I feel like if it was on Netflix, it would have more buzz around it. In Ice Cold Blood is more sensationalized and a way for Ice-T to make some...

Spring TV: Supernatural

A couple of supernatural shows debuted recently, even though you might not have heard of either one. Requiem is a Netflix show that you might have missed since Netflix is putting out so many new series. The show might not be for everyone, but if you like the supernatural...

Spring TV: Procedurals

Procedurals follow patterns, and that can make them predictable, but it also makes them like the comfort food of tv shows. I do like to mix in some procedurals into my tv viewing, even if they aren’t the best because I like having some shows on in the background...

Spring TV: Period Dramas

If you love period dramas, then you are in luck since both Howards End and Little Women are supposed to be really good....

Spring TV: Killers

Spring time brings out the killers! Both of these shows are getting really good reviews. Barry stars Bill Hader as a hitman who really wants to get out of the business and be an actor instead. I’ve been watching Barry and it has been fantastic. Killing Eve stars Sandra Oh as a MI5...

Spring TV: Fantasy/Sci-Fi

Did there need to be another reboot of Lost in Space? Maybe because this seems like a decent version of it. It has better special effects and all the characters are great. The other two fantasy/sci-fi shows don’t have the best reviews. Krypton appears to be a big bore and Sirens has...

Spring TV: Family Dramas

It is a mixed bag with these three family dramas. Life Sentence fails at getting the right mix of serious and sweet when dealing with a young woman who is told that her terminal cancer is suddenly cured, but while she gets a new lease on life, her family has...

Spring TV: Family Comedies

Half of these family comedies look decent. It’s nice to see Tracy Jordan on tv again, especially since I’ve been rewatching 30 Rock. The Last O.G. is created by Jordan Peele and also stars Tiffany Haddish so it has a lot of good things going for it. Splitting Up Together has a silly...

Spring TV: Documentaries

HBO and Netflix have a variety of documentaries this spring. On Netflix, you can find stories about the struggles of Flint, Michigan outside of the water problems, a cult that used to exist in Oregon in the 1980s, and the stories of eight current rap artists. On HBO, you...
