Michael Gleason Has Passed Away
I can’t really collect my thoughts right now to express how much he meant to me…it’s not easy to type with tears in my eyes. He and Ernie Wallengren, who died way too young, were my mentors in the television business…and in so many other ways.

2016-2017 TV Season Review: NOTORIOUS and WESTWORLD

THIS IS US is the unbearably schmaltzy dramedy about–actually, I don’t know what the hell it’s about. LETHAL WEAPON isn’t the worst buddy cop movie-to-TV series adaptation, but it may be one of the dullest.
2016-2017 TV Season Review: DESIGNATED SURVIVOR
I was intrigued by the politics of the concept but the cliche mad general, the network-required family crap (the perfect wife, the adorable daughter, the the drug dealing son, seeming all computer generated), pulled me right out of the show.
