Tazza: Episode 1
by | September 21, 2008 | 11 Comments
You know, I fully expected to dislike Tazza. I didn’t have many expectations, and I doubted that the drama version would be able to effectively capture what made the film version such a hit — I imagined it would be what you might expect if you had to cut down The Sopranos to air on... More »

Insoon Is Pretty: Episode 2
by | November 16, 2007 | 42 Comments
Huh. Well now, this is unexpected: I did not like Episode 2. I’m used to finding second episodes to be a marked improvement from the first, but rarely the opposite. It’s strange for me to find an episode 1 to be good and the following markedly less so. Episode 1 was subtly moving, understated and... More »
