Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

The Guild, Season Four:
The story in this season of The Guild grows organically from its focus around online gaming and manages to shift around several of the character relationships to support ensuing hilarity. This season (about an hour and twenty minutes) is just as good as previous seasons, although I would have to watch them all again to really pick out a favourite.

Final Grade: B+

The Office, Season One:
When The Office first came out, I stopped watching it after about four episodes. People always looked at me incredulously when I said I didn't like it, but rewatching it today confirms my undeniable prowess at being judgy. The first season is pretty weak, with more uncomfortable moments than funny ones, and the character of Michael Scott is written to be 100% unsympathetic. We're watching the 2nd season now, and I find that all of my perceived issues have been addressed. Note: The first season is only 6 episodes long.

Final Grade: C-

Ten by Gabriella Cilmi:
This is Cilmi's follow-up to Lessons to Be Learned, and though her voice is just as solid, the songs aren't quite as good. There's a larger focus on dance beats, resulting in a CD full of catchy, forgettable pop. This is also not a CD I can blast in the car with the windows down, since most of the songs have lyrics like "I am a woman on a mission (whoa)" that do not reflect well on masculinity.

Final Grade: B-
