Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Modern Family, Season Two:
The second season continues to amuse without a drop in quality. The character of Cam gets a little tiresome by the end, but not enough so that it hurts our enthusiasm for watching.

Final Grade: B+

Trouble in Paradise by La Roux:
This collection of songs is completely unmemorable, not unlike my single viewing ever of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's a pleasant palette of pop electronica, but takes no chances and has nothing as catchy as Tigerlily or Bulletproof.

Final Grade: C-

The IT Crowd, Season One:
This British comedy about the IT department in a big company is a pleasant treadmill-worthy show. It improves in the second season, although it tends to rely a bit too much on absurdist or fantasy humor. Rebecca was done with it after the IT geeks discovered a goth living in the basement of the building. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: B

Displacement by Lucy Knisley:
Rebecca recommended this graphic novel about a young twenty-something taking her aging grandparents (one with dementa) on a cruise. It's about as heavy as it sounds, though the tone is buoyed by the cute cartoons and a short running length.

Final Grade: B-
