By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – September 19, 2018) Remember me saying last week that it was shot and timed to make it appear like Julian killed his mother, but that I didn’t buy it? Remember me also saying to anticipate one more twist and that there HAD to be some deeper reason for us spending…

Big6 Blog: Ozark: S2E10 “The Gold Coast” Review

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – September 20, 2018) Season 2 of Ozark has been far more interesting than its predecessor, but it follows the usual pattern of a new installment, because virtually everything has grown bigger, especially the body count.

From the moment Ozark showed us the day they met, and especially once Darlene talked Jacob into leaving his girlfriend at the table and going with the gal that “will at…

Big6 Blog: Better Call Saul: S4E7 “Something Stupid” Review

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – September 17, 2018) The opening sequence of tonight’s episode was the very epitome of a LITERAL “cold” open. It ended with two people increasingly on different paths, taking different roads, and growing apart. This season for Jimmy McGill has been about deciding to take the low road, rather than simply…

Big6 Blog: Big 6 Takeaways (Titans vs. Texans – Week 2)

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – September 16, 2018) The Tennessee Titans, without their starting quarterback, both starting tackles, their stud TE…no sweat, right? Well, not exactly. It took some bad football from Houston early, some inventive, almost high-school like offense from Matt LaFleur’s offense, and an inexplicably terrible finish for Deshaun Watson on the final…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – September 15, 2018) 24-0 sounds good, it really does, until you take a look at the opponent. UTEP, with the loss, has dropped 15 consecutive games. That’s the longest active losing streak in FBS, and the Miners were obliterated by UNLV (Not Larry Johnson, Anderson Hunt, and Stacey Augmon either)…
