B6B: TV REVIEW: Better Call Saul – Season 5, Episode 4

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 9, 2020) EPISODE 4: NAMASTE This was a very, very heavy Saul and Kim episode, which with just a little Hank and Steve hijinks and a pretty frightening few minutes of Gus waiting for that call…made it maybe my favorite of the new season. Written and directed by Gordon…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Season Finale

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 9, 2020) EPISODE 10: MUST/CAN’T What a fun, incredibly well executed limited series this turned out to be. I enjoyed The Outsider more than I did Price’s The Night Of, which was also strong, and it joins Watchmen as two exceptional one and done (well, we assume so, but…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: Better Call Saul – Season 5, Episode 3

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 2, 2020) SEASON 5, EPISODE 3: THE GUY FOR THIS Better Call Saul has always been a show that has valued convergent themes amongst its storylines. Monday’s episode was yet another example where multiple characters went through different situations that all put them in the position of being the…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 9

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – March 2, 2020) EPISODE 9: TIGERS AND BEARS The penultimate strikes again. Don’t say I never told you, because I’ve told you no less than 45,687 times during my writing career. When we get to the next-to-last episode, it’s about to get real, and some piece of sad drama is…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: Better Call Saul – Season 5, Episodes 1 & 2

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – February 24, 2020) We’ve spoken before, you and I, here in these reviews that date all the way back to the series premiere of Better Call Saul, about the inherent disadvantage the series has in its audience knowing how it will end, at least to some extent. The last “real”…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episodes 7 & 8

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – February 24, 2020) I know you were probably wondering where last week’s piece was, and with good reason, as it’s certainly a fair question. Here’s the answer. HBO stopped giving out episodes early following the first six, which then meant critics couldn’t see the installments in advance and had to…more

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…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 5

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 31, 2020) EPISODE 5: TEAR-DRINKER “Tell him to stop.” This brings me right back to Eddie Murphy’s classic Delirious special, talking of Poltergeist and the “get out” reaction from his family. “Too bad we can’t stay.” Pretty much. When Jeannie Anderson has that moment in her home in the…more

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…more

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…more
