Review: Les Miserables, Episode Five

Readers, you are welcomed to the fifth week of Victor Hugo-inspired raving! What's eerily prescient about this episode is the way in which it echoes the ongoing real-life protests by the gilet jaunes, a French grassroots activist group ...

Review: The Conners (Season One)

Spin-offs are hardly a new thing in the realm of television. There's an old quote that says something to the effect of, "A good show is measured by the quality of its spin-off." Who doesn't want to see the continued stories of fan-favorite ...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Three

To say that I was in shock after this week's episode would be a monumental understatement. Aside from the fact that I have been completely awestruck by Dominic West’s performance throughout the first and second episodes, there ha...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Two

Welcome back! After last week’s pilot, I’m really glad to say that the BBC adaptation of Les Misérables is soaring. Thanks to the enduring patience of Flixist’s US writers, who have given me free reign to cover wh...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode One

While I don’t often review individual shows, this is a unique and rare instance where the worlds of film, musical theatre, literature and TV come together in glorious harmony, or at least like competing relatives forced to be civil ...

We've reached peak reality TV with Shaq and Ken Jeong

Last spring, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal took on actor Ken Jeong in a rap battle of mismatched proportions. Shaq isn't shy on a mic by any means, and Jeong got a few good licks on the big man, including a dig on Kazaam. Now, aft...

HBO provides its first look at the upcoming Watchmen series

There's no denying the greatness of Alan Moore's Watchmen. The 1987 story took a dark look at the superhero realm, filled it with riotous prerogatives and semi-retired heroes forced into a choice of underground vigilante or common civilian ...

I didn't see Daredevil Season 3 coming so quickly

All of the new seasons of Netflix's Marvel shows have just crept up on me from out of nowhere. I had no idea Luke Cage (Season Two) even aired and now we're already talking about Iron Fist (Season Two) and how it has improved on the first s...

Daredevil season 3 teaser trailer is holier than thou

Fair warning, this is literally the definition of teaser. It's short, doesn't really show much, and says a lot less. Except, well, Matt Murdoch, attorney at law, has finally decided he likes his latex-suited friend better than himself. Yip...

The Big Bang Theory set to end after 12th season

The longer a show goes on the more I'm inclined to hate it for a very dumb reason. No it's not because the original writers all left or the premise has completely changed á la Urkel killing the Winslow family. No, I hate how you can ...

BoJack Horseman Season 5 gets a release date

BoJack Horseman is underrated. It's been one of my favorite Netflix originals since it's premiere, contrasting cartoony visuals with a depressing story about narcissism, loss and excess. Not to mention the premise and the style of this show...

13 Reasons Why is getting another season

I'm a little surprised. After the second-season debut of 13 Reasons Why, I was almost certain that Netflix's mental-health teen drama was canned. Critics did not receive it well; partly due to the poor way it depicts mental illness and suic...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's cancellation lasted a whole 24 hours
