Move over, movies

People always ask if I’ve seen this movie or that movie, and the answer is often no. I watched a lot of movies growing...

The Leftovers impresses and entertains

Not many have been watching, but the second season of The Leftovers has been a triumph — a marvel in narrative and tone with jaw-dropping performances. That said, it might not be for everyone, as its strongest traits might also be keeping viewers from engaging with it.
