Jo Koy: In His Elements (2020) (programa) 

inglés I was thrilled with Jo Koy's previous special, but this time, it felt like a letdown. Hyped up for his trademark humor and insights, I instead found myself bombarded with repetitive self-praise, constant nods to Filipino culture, and what felt like obligatory Netflix plugs. Laughs were scarce, and too often, I found myself watching unfamiliar faces instead of the comedian I came for. Now, as I reflect on it all, I can't find a reason to give it two stars. / Lesson learned: The higher the expectations, the bigger the letdown.

Jo Koy: Comin' in Hot (2019) (programa) 

inglés Chelsea Handler kept mentioning Jo Koy in her special so much that she convinced me it was worth checking him out. And boy, was I glad I did! His Hawaiian performance was so entertaining that I couldn't resist giving it a five-star rating, even though the repeated sentences grated on me a bit. But in the end, it didn't matter much because Jo Koy won me over with his exploration of topics that don't often get the spotlight due to political correctness. It was a blast, and I'm definitely planning to catch his other two specials on Netflix. / Lesson learned: Malcolm was a brilliant prop. 5*-

Marinero de guerra (2023) (serie) 

inglés I'll admit that the story's initial development left me somewhat disappointed. I had envisioned something quite different. However, as the narrative progressed, I became captivated by the individual stories of people often overlooked in the grand narratives of war. These were not soldiers or naval officers, but ordinary civilians risking their lives on every voyage to thwart the Nazi regime. Their heroism, seldom rewarded with medals, is a testament to their unsung bravery. I appreciate how the series sheds light on these forgotten heroes, especially those who met tragic ends (especially on tankers). The acting performances were commendable, with special praise for Henrikke Lund Olsen, whose portrayal of Magdeli was excellent. While I'm not exactly a fan of child actors, her performance stood out to me. And while I have a fondness for the RAF, I couldn't help but notice their strong bias against education. / Lesson learned: Even survival can be a tragedy.

Marinero de guerra - Episode 3 (2023) (episodio) 

inglés The third and final episode of this compact miniseries wraps up the narrative in a satisfying manner. From the outset, it was clear that this wouldn't be a lighthearted affair, and I appreciate that. I've grown weary of the formulaic happy endings with their songs and dances. However, I can also imagine that if you're contemplating suicide, a series like this one could help you take that final step. / Lesson learned: You can't wait forever.

Marinero de guerra - Episode 2 (2023) (episodio) 

inglés Well, disappointment finally caught up with me. I was eagerly anticipating the convoy battles, but to my dismay, they were mostly relegated to the sidelines, happening just out of sight. Only a few fleeting scenes made it onto the screen. However, the creators had a different agenda in mind, one that took me by surprise — they crafted a poignant drama about underappreciated individuals. / Lesson learned: With each death on the rescue raft, you lose a friend but gain living space.

Marinero de guerra - Episode 1 (2023) (episodio) 

inglés The first episode of this three-part miniseries introduced the characters, sketched the future plot, and placed us firmly in the historical period. Now, the question remains: will the creators deliver a story that truly captivates? With a topic like the Atlantic convoys — an area that naturally piques my interest — I'm cautiously optimistic. / Lesson learned: There are moments in life when one would appreciate a glimpse into the future.

Fern Brady: Autistic Bikini Queen (2024) (programa) 

inglés Today was a stand-up comedy jackpot for me. Netflix introduced me to Fern Brady, and boy, was it a discovery! It's becoming increasingly clear to me that comedians must be somehow mentally disturbed to excel in their craft. Right from the start, her unique accent and pleasantly husky voice grabbed my attention, and when she backed it up with top-notch jokes, I knew I was in for a treat. Needless to say, I had a blast. / Lesson learned: Every volunteer should take a page out of Ollie's book.

Chelsea Handler: Revolution (2022) (programa) 

inglés Chelsea Handler was a new discovery for me, and I must admit, I had some mixed feelings at first. There was this interesting contrast between what I saw and what I heard. On one hand, I was thoroughly entertained — I'm a sucker for black humor, and a woman who nails it is even better. But on the other hand, there was something unsettling about watching a comedian with a stone-cold face like a cyborg and the icy gaze of a sniper. Still, I appreciated her unique perspective as she cracked jokes from the perspective of a rich, snobbish white woman. It was a first for me, and I found myself enjoying it more than I expected. / Lesson learned: You'd better not wear flip-flops, unless you want to end up in Guantánamo.

Good on Paper (2021) 

inglés Yesterday, I saw Iliza Shlesinger's stand-up special, which was a blast, and then stumbled upon her acting in a movie. Honestly? I didn't have high hopes, as even the best stand-up comedians often struggle as actors. Surprisingly, it wasn't half bad. I found myself laughing out loud at times, though there were moments where the pace dragged a bit, and I breathed a sigh of relief when the credits finally rolled. Still, I have to give credit where it's due: Shlesinger manages to weave feminist ideas into the film with a light, humorous touch that appeals to both genders. The comedy was no masterpiece, but it's definitely something men can enjoy without cringing at the jokes. Only those who take themselves too seriously might feel a bit uneasy. / "Let's look at the bright side. Maybe his mom does have cancer."  - "What?" - "I guess that's being too optimistic."

The Last Kingdom - Episode 7 (2022) (episodio) 

inglés While I was pleased with the direction of the previous episode, this one fell short of expectations. While I applaud the exploration of politics, the heavy focus on anti-partisan conflict didn't quite resonate with me. Particularly, the confrontation with the first and only York partisan dampened my overall enjoyment. P.S. Anyone who's ever wielded a hammer against a sixty-meter concrete sidewalk knows that certain fight scenes could use a more realistic portrayal. / Lesson learned: Standing your ground may lead to ending up lying in a pool of blood and your own entrails.
