Martha Trydahl Martha Trydahl TV Review: AMC’s “The Son,” a Struggling, Shallow Western

AMC’s Saturday night Western, The Son, is based on the novel by Philipp Meyer. The novel was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, but ironically, it is the writing that is the downfall of the television series. The characters are woefully underwritten. They lack motivation and depth, despite the fact that there’s plenty of room for […]

Martha Trydahl Martha Trydahl TV Review: Big Little Lies

In the middle of an argument with his wife, Ed Mackenzie (Adam Scott) aptly said, “In every marriage there is pretending.” In HBO’s Big Little Lies, we saw the many facets of this statement.

TV Review: Westworld

Martha Trydahl Martha Trydahl TV Review: Westworld

The season finale of Westworld aired on Sunday, December 4th, so if you’re not all caught up on the season, read carefully. HBO’s Westworld is a darker, more sophisticated take on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie. If you haven’t seen the film, I wouldn’t go back and watch it. It’s pretty terrible.
