REVIEW: ‘True Blood’ season finale a true bore

I love “True Blood.” And I’ve loved this season of “True Blood.” There was never a dull moment. Until the season finale Sunday night.

We’re going to become so desensitized that we won’t even be able to enjoy a movie. Or we’re going to get to the point where we think “I liked that movie well enough the first […]

‘Weeds’ review: Slow season pays off in the end

I joined Hollywood Hills during the middle of “Weeds,” so I never started a weekly review, so I thought I’d review the entire season now, following Monday’s season finale. The Showtime drama started its season with Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) in trouble once again. That’s the ongoing theme of this show. She got out of her […]
