Flare Magazine: “Do We Really Need Another Season of You?”

Flare Magazine just ran a piece I wrote about my very complex feelings for the show YOU. Do I enjoy the series, with all of its riveting twists and turns? Yes. Do I have an appreciation for what the cast and crew have crafted? Absolutely. But do I find it to still be problematic in…

Flare Magazine: Top TV of the ’10s, This Is Us, Netflix Updates, & More

Alongside my television work and a few stray pieces for some other publications, I’ve recently had the pleasure of working for FLARE, a Canadian lifestyle mag focused on fashion, beauty, celebrity, and current events. And it has been a total blast! I’ve already linked to my piece on the Game of Thrones finale, but since then I’ve…

Another Life on NETFLIX

The first season of Netflix original ANOTHER LIFE has launched! I was lucky enough to work as a story editor on the first season, and being part of a sci-fi series has always been a dream since I was a wee little nerd. Space ships! Aliens! Intense interpersonal relationships! Plus, the show stars BATTLESTAR GALACTICA…

Slasher: Solstice on NETFLIX

Exciting news!  The newest season of Netflix’s anthology horror series SLASHER is released today and… I wrote the sixth episode! Woo hoo! It was a fantastic experience, with an incredible cast bringing the whole enterprise to life, and shepherded by smarter minds than me.  I am deeply grateful to be a part of the process,…

This past May, I saw the Broadway production of Mart Crowley’s seminal queer classic The Boys in the Band at Booth Theater in New York City.

It was a bold statement, and one that not only restated the series’ theme, but also prepared viewers for both the conclusion to the series AND the main characters’ lives. Definitive….

RIP, Dana Scully

Don’t worry. The title isn’t a spoiler. I have no idea if Chris Carter intends to kill off Dana Scully on the eleventh season of The X-Files. I mean, Gillian Anderson has gone on record as saying that this season will indeed be her final performance as the beleaguered FBI agent, so if she is…

Nostalgia Is A Drug

It really bugs me that there is now a backlash over The Last Jedi being a film that upends series mythology when so many Star Wars fans were critical of The Force Awakens being too derivative of A New Hope. I mean, fandoms are a fickle bunch, but… for real? You’re going to toss this…

The Past Must Die

The Last Jedi is a fascinating film. It is definitely one of the most artful blockbusters I have ever seen, with some truly astounding visuals. I mean, there’s this: And this: And this: It’s clear Rian Johnson took his time to not only revisit the rules set up by George Lucas all those years ago,…
