Not all is well with this episode, but it’s much more of what I’d expect from this series: wacky and lightly offensive nonsense filmed beautifully, juxtaposed with moments of existential dread for both the characters and the audience.

Frankly, it's a small miracle this show got past its first season with the trajectory it set for itself. I'm… Continue reading A Hell of a Vision – 3P Reviews: Preacher, Season Four, Episode One

3P Reviews: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Season Two, Episode Twelve (Episode Twenty-Six)

Heads up on this one, I’m going to be taking a break on the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood review series during August. This is a long series and I think it would be good to take a break between seasons*, lest they consume my brain and my site. I’ll resume them in September.
