The Tick (new) - Season 1


You expect the Tick to be a bit weird, and I'm glad they updated the weirdness. Cartoony jokes, side-by-side with subtle running gags and callbacks, mixed with serious character development, gives this a feeling that is as awkward and unbalanced as it is engaging and hilarious.


The first two series were superheroes comedies for the time of cheap cartoons, Tim Burton's Batman, and Dark Age comics. This is the superhero comedy for the time of Zack Snyder, Chris Nolan's Batman, and 20+ spaghetti-tangled MCU movies.



Boy (2010)

Underneath the quirkiness and humour and beautiful scenery, there's a heart-breaking story about parenthood, responsibility, and substance abuse. I love it and I wish I'd never seen it. Taika Waititi is the greatest filmmaker of the decade.



Children's Hospital - Season 7

As much as I enjoyed this, it was probably the right call to make this the last season. Seasons 3-6 where perfect and so was most of this one, but weaker filler episodes started creeping in. Still, it was a lot more good than bad, and I really loved the final episode.



The Hudsucker Proxy


Fun. Especially the visuals and Jennifer Jason Leigh's fast-talking reporter.

Also the first Coen Brothers film to be a long tribute to a mostly-forgotten era of pop culture, which is mostly a good thing, although those movies seem to be the ones that polarize the fans the most. I'm a movie buff, but I'm guessing more than half the references went over my head. With this category of Coen film, it's best not to expect much, and just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.



Disenchantment - Season 1

This was a bit weak, but it shows potential, especially the last two episodes. It's not as good as season one of Futurama, but better than, say, season one of the Simpsons. I'm not going to wholeheartedly recommend this, but I'll definitely watch season two.



Childrens Hospital - Season 6

Every second of this was beautiful.



Jerry Lewis Was An Idiot, And Never Funny


The (new) Tick - Season 2

Wow! I don't normally binge watch, but the end of every episode was just so hilarious and/or suspenseful. There's not much I can say without spoiling anything, but in point form:
