    Grey’s Anatomy: Season 12

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 8th, 2016

    “When we strike that match, we like to think we can control the burn. We like to think we have any control at all. But fire is wildly difficult to contain. And just when you think you’ve extinguished the blaze… it reignites. It sucks in air, and it burns hotter and brighter than ever.” 

    Grey’s Anatomy has continued to surprise fans and critics alike. As far back as the seventh season there was strong talk that the show was drawing to an inevitable close. Since that time we have seen the end of the spinoff series Private Practice, which I always considered to be a better show.

    Grey’s Anatomy: Season 11

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on August 25th, 2015

    “Trauma is messy.”

    So begins life at Grey-Slone Memorial Hospital without Dr. Wang, and for the show Grey’s Anatomy, the loss of Sandra Oh. But there won’t be time to dwell on that loss as the story shifts to the departure of another of the show’s most popular characters and actors. Patrick Dempsey spent more than a decade as the show’s McDreamy, one of the more compelling talents in the cast. It’s another season, and mixed amid the medical emergencies, struggling relationships, and tragic events, it’s time to say goodbye once again.

    Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Ninth Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on August 28th, 2013

    “At first, idleness can seem like a welcome distraction the troublemaking and the fun. Everyone needs some idle time to focus on something other than work. Even if it means focusing on something that’s a little bit scary. Stepping back from work is the only way to get perspective.”

    For nine years millions of people have been spending those idle moments in the company of the cast and characters of Grey’s Anatomy. There are worse places one could be.

    Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Eighth Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 13th, 2012

    Grey’s Anatomy was originally going to end in its 8th season, and the final episode nearly leaves us with a pretty good indication that it would actually happen. The show’s fate was on the bubble for a little while and it seemed that both Grey’s and its sister show Private Practice might be leaving the airwaves forever. Of course, now we know that both shows are returning in the fall. Both will have major shake-ups. Without seeing the first episode of the upcoming season I’m left with some doubt as to how much of the show’s current format will remain intact. As it was there were some serious events leading up to the explosive cliffhanger.

    Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Seventh Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 16th, 2011

    Grey’s Anatomy had one heck of a year in its seventh season. The season begins with the aftermath of the shooting in the hospital that closed out the previous year. It’s taken a toll, particularly on Dr. Webber who is catching a ton of heat for the incident. But it isn’t that story arc that dominated the talk of the 2010-11 season over at ABC. It was the long anticipated and critically acclaimed musical episode that stole the spotlight this year.

    Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Sixth Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 15th, 2010

    Grey’s Anatomy follows the life and tribulations of a group of doctors and interns at Seattle Grace Hospital. There’s certainly nothing original about the premise, except that the story is told by one of the more unlikely characters, Dr. Meredith Grey (Pompeo). As a lead she’s really not all that remarkable, but the show doesn’t put everything on her narrow shoulders. The series is populated by a solid supporting cast, giving it all a far more ensemble feel despite the title. James Pickens, Jr. is perhaps the most extraordinary actor in the show. He’s underused, but steals every scene he’s in. His Dr. Webber is a powerfully serious voice in an otherwise often frivolous world.

    Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Fourth Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 17th, 2008

    There are some significant changes in season 4. The interns now have interns of their own. It’s actually a little fresh to see them struggle with circumstances we only recently watched them deal with from the other perspective. All except George, who is forced to repeat after blowing off his final exam to help Izzie. There are also many cast changes. Gone are Washington and the baggage he carried with his gay bashing slur. Also gone is Kate Walsh, as her character has moved on to her own spin-off, Private Practice.

    Grey’s Anatomy – The Complete Third Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 6th, 2007

    This was my first ever exposure to Grey’s Anatomy. Certainly I’ve followed the buzz the show has generated with its multiple awards and the feuding between two of the show’s actors. My first impression was not altogether a very good one. You see, season three begins with the aftermath of an obviously big ending from the previous year. From what I can gather, a character died and it left a void for a couple of the characters. I immediately began to feel like an outsider, a feeling I wasn’t very comfortable with. Fortunately, before I could give up feeling frustrated and hounded by an impending review deadline, something quite remarkable happened. Simply stated, I didn’t stop watching. In that moment of hesitation, I began to catch a glimpse of what everybody’s been going on about.

    Money

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on July 6th, 2017

    There are only two things wrong with money: too much or too little.”

    This devastatingly simple yet endlessly revealing quote by poet Charles Bukowski appears at the start of Money, a lean, mean, low-budget thriller filled with well-to-do characters who nevertheless feel the need to steal millions of dollars. To be clear, there are more than two things wrong with Money — particularly in the movie’s latter half, after the promising set-up starts to unravel — but the film still works as a brisk and entertaining game of cat-and-mouse mice.

    The Catch: Season 1

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 28th, 2016

    Shonda Rhimes now has a fourth series running on ABC this past season. Joining Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and How To Get Away With Murder is the new series The Catch. The series is based on a series of novels by Kate Atkinson and was actually created by Jennifer Schuur. And while The Catch distinguishes itself rather nicely from the usual Rhimes formula, you can still expect the bed-jumping antics that Rhimes is so obsessed with. It’s the one thing that all four shows have in common. It doesn’t matter whether she’s a writer, creator, or just a producer; there’s never been an episode of a series with her name on it that doesn’t have plenty of sex. In this case it’s a sad distraction from what turned out to be a rather clever show.

    How to Get Away with Murder: Season 2

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on July 5th, 2016

    “What does sex have to do with criminal law?”

    Shonda Rhimes pretty much has an answer for that. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hospital or a law firm, Rhimes knows how to interject the musical-beds routine about as well as anyone can. Of course, it’s really Peter Nowalk who is the creator and showrunner for How To Get Away With Murder, but while Nowalk might be driving the bus, Rhimes’ touch can be found in every corner of the sophomore ABC series. It’s a formula that appears to work for both Rhimes and the ABC network which finds her first hit, Grey’s Anatomy, just finishing its 11th season. I guess you can’t argue with success. Let’s see if I can argue with How To Get Away With Murder Season 2.

    Cop Rock: The Complete Series

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on May 31st, 2016

    You know a series is not likely to make it when it jumps the shark halfway through the pilot episode. But if your name is Steven Bochco, you get a little more rope than most with which to hang yourself. And why not? Bochco changed the entire landscape of television with shows like Hill Street Blues. He’s provided the training ground that gave us other brilliant television minds like David Kelly and Dick Wolf. He’s managed to push the boundaries of what you can and can’t do on the small screen with such controversial hits as NYPD Blue. With those kinds of street creds, you get a lot more rope than most. Still, every now and then even the greats manage to use that rope to hang themselves.

    Rookie Blue: Season 5

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on February 25th, 2016

    The premise itself is relatively simple and requires no real past knowledge to get on board. Unit 15 is the elite unit of an unnamed Canadian metropolitan police force. The unit is led by Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw (Gordon). Each episode begins with his roll call. Apparently in Canada it’s called parade. He does the usual job of giving out riding partners and assignments and providing the general “hot” information for the shift turn-out. The show focuses on a group of rookie cops assigned here. This is where it gets tricky.

    Supernatural: Season 10 (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 21st, 2015

    “‘Tis the season for Demon Dean.” 

    It’s almost like some twisted holiday season. Each season finds the Winchester Brothers in some way divided following an apocalyptic event. The world might be saved once again, but Either Dean or Sam is in Hell or Purgatory. One might be living in an alternate reality or just in a coma. This season starts with the tradition very much alive as the Mark of Cain has finally turned Dean into a demon, albeit one who loves to do bad karaoke. His partner in crime isn’t his brother Sam, but the King Of Hell himself, Crowley.

    Holiday Gift Guide Spotlight: ABC Television

    Posted in Holiday Gift Guides by Gino Sassani on December 19th, 2014

    ABC and Disney have some rather entertaining television sets for that hard-to-please television addict on your shopping list. In recent years more and more of us engage in something called binge-watching. With either a DVR or the season sets releases, we watch an entire season of a show in a matter of a few days. I’ll bet you have a binge-watcher on that list of yours. You might want to consider some of the ABC family of shows.

    The 100: Season 1 (Blu-ray)

    “Prisoners of the ARC, hear me now. You’ve been given a second chance, and as your Chancellor, it is my hope that you see this as not just a chance for you, but a chance for all of us, indeed for mankind itself. We have no idea what is waiting for you down there. If the odds of survival were better, we would’ve sent others. Frankly, we’re sending you because your crimes have made you expendable.”

    It’s 97 years ago and nuclear holocaust has made life on Earth unlivable… at least that’s what most people believed.

    Rookie Blue: Season 4

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on May 13th, 2014

    It’s hard to review a series starting from the fourth season, which is exactly what I had to do when Rookie Blue arrived for review recently. In the early days of television, it wouldn’t have been a problem. Most shows, cop shows in particular, had a full story with each episode and a continuity that didn’t require you to see any episodes in any particular order. This was a must if a show were to find an afterlife in syndication where show orders were largely disregarded.

    Magic City: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on November 6th, 2013

    Ike Evans (Morgan) owns the most swank hotel in Miami. It’s the Miramar Playa. He bought the land at a song from his deceased wife’s family, and he’s turned it into a luxury city where the likes of Frank Sinatra call home. He’s determined to make it without caving to the influence of his minority partner, who happens to go by the name of The Butcher. He’s Ben Diamond (Huston), and he wants the hotel to become a kingdom of gambling and other profitable vices. Sure, Ike allows a little prostitution and backroom bookie action, but he wants to keep the hotel pretty much legit. That’s hard with a bank nut that runs $65,000 a month.

    Magic City: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on October 11th, 2012

    “Every ambition has a dark side.”

    And that includes the world of the cable television series. The world of cable series has brought us some of the most ambitious and compelling television shows we’ve ever seen. There’s no censor board to answer to, so that means the shows have the freedom to expand into visual areas that have long been taboo on network shows. Nudity, sexuality, language, and even violence are often huge parts of these kinds of shows. Because there isn’t really a ratings pressure, the shows can also cater to more specialized audiences.

    The Resident (Blu-ray)

    Hammer has risen from the grave. A group of investors have resurrected the film brand and intend to honor the tradition of the once-defunct horror giant. President Simon Oakes is a self-proclaimed fan since he was a kid. He has no interest in trying to fit Hammer into the new mold of torture porn or slashers. He acknowledges that there is plenty of room for those kinds of films in the horror genre. He hopes to bring back more than just the Hammer name. He intends to bring back the gothic spirit that was Hammer Films

    Diary of a Mad Black Woman: The Movie (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 8th, 2010

    “September 19th. Dear Diary, as I sit here thinking about picking up the pieces of what used to be my life, I realized something. Every room in this house holds a painful memory for me. Even though he’s suffering, something somewhere in me wants him to suffer more. A few months and a divorce can take you through just as many emotions as 18 years in a marriage. And I’m starting to feel all of them at once. But the one that is clear is rage. Signed, a Mad Black Woman.”

    Lately I’ve had an opportunity to watch a ton of Madea on Blu-ray.
