Crashing: The First 4 Episodes of Season One

Crashing: The First 4 Episodes of Season One

Comedian Pete Holmes, along with Judd Apatow, have created the series Crashing for HBO and the critics love it. See? Also below we offer up a review of the first four episodes of its premiere season. See what we thought and check back later for a review of the latter half of the season.  Let’s get this going.     Episode # 1 – “Artie Lange” The series starts off with Pete (Pete Holmes) and his wife, Jess (Lauren Lapkus), cutting vegetables when she says she wants to have sex on the floor. He makes a joke, she tells him no bits, and then we are treated to a wedding photo, a picture of Jesus, and comic...

Big Little Lies: “Serious Mothering”

Big Little Lies: “Serious Mothering”

  Madeline wakes up from a dream that shows a man popping the cork off a champagne bottle, a woman walking barefoot on the beach in an unzipped dress, a quick shot of sex, and the closing of a door. This dream may mean something eventually, but from any information we have gotten from the first episode, we don’t know yet what that is. Madeline spends the morning staring out into the ocean until she is startled by Chloe. She then talks about what could be out there and what may lie beneath the surface. I wasn’t a fan of Madeline in the first episode and after seeing the second episode, I can’t say I’m a fan now, but this episode...

Girls Season Six Premiere: “All I Ever Wanted”

Girls Season Six Premiere: “All I Ever Wanted”

Season Six of Girls is finally here and the first episode takes off from where Season Five leaves off. “Takes off” is a strong phrase for how the episode actually went. It was more like a slow Sunday drive down some unremarkable road, except with more swearing and the occasional mention of reproductive organs and awkward sex. Let’s recap first: Now, “All I Ever Wanted” opens up with Hannah typing up a printed version monolog she presented at the end of the Season Five finale. Out of sheer curiosity, I read it and I’m confused to how not only it got published, but how it landed her a writing assignment that she will...

Silicon Valley Season Three Finale: “The Uptick”

Silicon Valley Season Three Finale: “The Uptick”

This season of Silicon Valley has been full of firings, new CEOs, and corporate shuffling. Unlike previous seasons, we went into the finale not knowing what to expect. Season One had the build up to Tech Crunch and Season Two had the pending lawsuit. This season, it felt like we were left in the dark. Even the preview of the episode was extremely vague with Richard being told off by multiple characters. Unlike Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley fans don’t tune in each episode and expect that someone is going to die. This episode, however, started with the death of the elephant, Maurice, that Gavin used for one of his demonstrations last...

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Pied Piper is LIVE! Not only that, but it’s become hugely successful. We start off the episode with a Bloomberg interview of Erlich Bachman (henceforth known as Erlich Blachman according to the White Pages and Google) and Richard Hendricks. At first glance, it seems odd that Erlich is trying to steal the spotlight, especially since we know that he sold his 10% of the company. Why would he want to draw attention to himself? The only reason I could think of was Meinertzhagen’s Haversack. I guess it worked because nobody suspects that he technically has nothing to do with the company anymore. It seems to be working because it’s...
