Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

The Expanse, Season Two:
I gave the first season of this sci-fi show a C-, labelling it a slog with forgettable characters. The second season is a major improvement (one that I only watched because there was nothing else in my queue at that moment). The plot moves steadily and weaves disparate storylines and characters together to a nice finale, in spite of the fact that the main protagonist has a punchable face. Free on Amazon Prime.

Final Grade: B

The Click by AJR:
This is a fun pop album, full of catchy hooks and interesting samples. Burn The House Down is a good representative track.

Final Grade: B+

Bosch, Season Six:
Six seasons in, Bosch has perfected the art of juggling five or six storylines without collapsing in chaos. This season is much better than Season Five because the main characters are more often in the same scenes together. I appreciate the slow and steady cinematography much more than I used to -- although that may just be quarantine talking. Free on Amazon Prime.

Final Grade: B

Parks and Recreation, Quarantine Episode:
The Parks and Rec cast gathered to create a Reunion Special and it was exactly what it needed to be. The use of a Gryzzl Video Chat to connect actors all stuck at home during quarantine was a clever way to put together a show without much of an overarching plot, but this is really just a way to get some favourite characters back together again and remind us how good the show was.

Final Grade: A
