I like sappy movies and TV shows


Absolutely loved this show. The premise is very TV insider - bringing back together a dopey sitcom. But the way they cast and wrote all the characters (Paul Reiser!) raises this to an incredibly rich level of story and emotion that I didn’t expect. Bravura!

What a great basketball movie. Period. Adam Sandler is a fully realized character (it’s easy to forget what a great actor he is when he is playing a caricature).

Surprised at how good this show was. Each episode is packed from beginning to end with the energy of a restaurant. The characters feel grittily real as do their battles with each other. A good reminder of what it takes to run a small business too

Perfect book for a hot summer weekend. It is by the creator of How I Met Your Mother and has the same ensemble feel of many rich characters with intersecting lives - some growing up, some not quite yet. Rich story, spot on characterization of addiction to social media and how much information is online. Someone should build MeWantThat.

Found this documentary very touching and richly filmed with three families and teenagers connecting with their adoption stories and history in China,

I can’t explain why I like these fish out of water, famous celebrities get together with a random regular person. (Marry Me is another). But… I loved the Valet. I laughed out loud many times and felt the emotional roller coaster they took us on. It holds together surprisingly well and the acting is excellent.

Yup. It’s good as everyone says. And better. And the cliffhanger… can’t wait for season 2.

It was a fine murder mystery whodunit. Nothing surprising but it holds together. A fun watch if you are in the mood. The Egypt scene setting was gorgeous

An alternate history of the US-Russia Space Race and foreign relations. A character study of astronauts in the program. A world where we started settling the moon. From the individual family stories up to geopolitics - this is just an incredible watch. Not sure why it took me so long to discover it. Bravo!
