"Fighting with My Family was a decent film that managed to make the characters engaging but forgot to do so with the wrestling. Merchant's writing is great, as was the entire cast. As with most bio-drama, real life is forsaken for plot convenience, drama, and runtime. I was never invested in the characters, but did enjoy them. If you want more wrestling in a similar vein, watch the tv series G.L.O.W."
|69 75%||Krypton (2018) - May 24, 2019
"A surprisingly well-constructed prequel-esque superhero show, that is much more interesting than the relationship driven shows the CW trots outs. With time travel, changing alliances, and potential redemption arcs, I'm looking forward to season 2."
|75 88%||Killjoys (2015) - May 24, 2019
"Killjoys is good sci-fi show that is above all fun. At times the plot can get quite convoluted and some of the dialogue is cheesy, but the show deals with an evolution of stakes in a good way. John-Kamen is great, Macfarclane is charming, and it's always nice to seen sci-fi veteran Ashmore."
|66 66%||Kidding (2018) - May 24, 2019
"Kidding is more drama than it is comedy, and almost parallels Carrey journey from his slapstick comedy beginnings to his fame, numerous losses, controversial media statements and inability to shake his past, making him well cast. The humour is definitely born from tragedy, with the funnier moments being when Carrey clashes with Langella. A little slow paced, but there are plenty of worthwhile moments."
|68 73%||Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (2017) - May 24, 2019
"I really enjoyed Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. As a staunch non-believer, I was initially sceptical of the premise and affirmation of Christian mythology, but the show is actually wholesome, funny and well-written. It did have it's problems, like a few annoying characters and an incredibly cheesy execution, though they were worth overlooking."
|68 73%||Elementary (2012) - May 24, 2019
"The proximity of the initial releases of the BBC's Sherlock and Elementary, makes any comparisons inevitable. While Sherlock is built around its "clever" plots, Elementary takes a more character focused approach, dealing with addiction and rehabilitation, friendship and growth. Miller is great as the damaged titular character (a more realistic take than Cumberbatch's), and Lui's interpretation of Watson is good (though not as much as Freeman's). A lot procedural filler, but a solid show."
|42 2%||Drunk Parents (2018) - May 22, 2019
"Drunk Parents fumbles its opening by not setting the tone the movie should follow, and it's all downhill from there. None of the characters' decisions really ever make sense. The movie is unsure whether it wants to be slapstick or a dark comedy, half-heartedly attempting both, indicated by the variety of unnecessary oddball characters introduced. Even the title of the movie and closing narration are unsure of what the movie is. Hayek and Baldwin are alright, but give this one a miss."
|81 96%||Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (2015) - May 22, 2019
"This is my kind of period piece. The production is great. The dialogue is witty. The show is well cast and well acted. Each episode delivers the right mix of character development and plot progression to keep it engaging. "
|65 58%||Jessica Jones (2015) - May 22, 2019
"Jessica Jones, like most of the Netflix Marvel shows, suffers from an staggeringly slow pace. Ritter is good at playing the anti-hero, but I didn't find the plot to be that engaging."
|69 75%||iZombie (2015) - May 22, 2019
"McIver is flexes her versatility in iZombie, making the show an enjoyable romp. The weekly cases can be a bit hit-or-miss, but the show relies on the chemistry between cast, which it has bucket loads off. The overarching plotlines are always focused on the characters and they undergo a significant amount of growth in the 5 seasons the show has been running. "
