good omens review

The road to a good screen adaptation of a beloved book is paved with good intentions, but often littered with bad executions. But if a show were made of pure good intentions, it would be Amazon’s Good Omens, which is a show eager — even desperate — to do justice to its source material.

mary queen of scots review

The era of the progressive period piece is surprisingly tedious.

Led by two powerhouse performers and backed by a radically diverse cast, Mary Queen of Scots seems to promise the evolution of the period piece — one anchored around two fascinating women ahead of their time and not limited by the crusty perceptions of stuffy historical dramas.
