Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Sneaky Pete, Season Two:
I really enjoyed season one of this show, and the first half of the second season was both fun and funny as the characters deal with the fallout of their choices from the last season. However, the back half of the season is something of a muddle, with too many moving parts and unclear character motivations. It essentially just sputters to a conclusion. Free on Amazon Prime.

Final Grade: B-

Better Call Saul, Season Three:
This show has finally found its stride and was engaging and watchable all the way through. Even some of the artistic choices and extended montages that I would have found incredibly dull in Breaking Bad worked well here. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: A-

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri:
This movie was written and directed like a Coens Brothers movie that I actually had interest in watching. Rebecca remarked that Frances McDormand's character was her spirit animal. The movie ends fairly open-endedly, but leaves enough clues to mull over after the fact that you can decide for yourself how things will play out.

Final Grade: A-

Kevin James: Never Don't Give Up:
This clean comedy special starts out fairly strong but then builds up to an audience interaction bit that kills any momentum and ends on a chuckle. Had the bits been reorganized so the interactions were towards the beginning, it would have been a better end-to-end show. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: C+
