B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 6

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – February 9, 2020) EPISODE 6: THE ONE WITH THE YIDDISH VAMPIRE The very end of the episode was predictable and was set-up throughout, but outside of that particular sequence, which was full-on tension and one heck of a cliffhanger, it was an episode that actually felt like a bit of…

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 4

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 27, 2020) EPISODE 4: QUE VIERE EL COCO The Outsider is compelling. It’s a very good show. Usually when you read a sentence like that, there’s a “but” in the vicinity. Nope. I’m enjoying it. I thought it fitting to write bluntly and in quick strike fashion, matching Holly…

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: The Gentlemen

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 23, 2020) For the first time in a while, I was excited for a Guy Ritchie movie. It isn’t that everything he’s made in recent years has been trash, because that’s untrue. It’s more that I’ve left disappointed relative to my own walk-in expectations. Since Lock, Stock, and Two…
