Ramy (Season 1)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) I’ll rank this show almost equivalent to “Master of None”. And for the same reason, this series is redundant as Aziz Ansari already did it.
2) “Ne Me Quitte Pas” is the Emmy worth episode of this series.
3) Stephen Way as Stevie. The best thing in Hollywood for the disability community.

 
CONS –
1) Nothing new for the audiences of “Master of None” or even “Citizen Khan”.

Better Call Saul (Season 4)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 3/5

 
Pros –
1) Great finale! Jimmy’s character is fascinating and a matter of study. Someone who enjoys crime and mischief; someone who’ll always cut corners. He may look like a victim every now and then however his true self will remain Slippin’ Jimmy.
2) Werner’s death scene is now bigger than Gale’s death scene in Breaking Bad.
3) Mike’s no-nonsense character is now getting iconic.
4) Huell’s rescue plot.
5) Ep.7 brilliant split-screen time jump sequence between Jimmy and Kim. Frank and Nancy can’t be much prouder.

 

 

Cons –
N/A

DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 

 

Pros –

1) John Turturro as John Stone : Saved the best of himself for the finale monologue
2) Courtromm drama
3) Riz Ahmed as Naz : The transformation
4) Bill Camp as Dennis Box is a revelation
5) The Cat Subplot analogy with Naz’s.

 
Cons –

1) Poorna Jagannathan as Nasir’s mother : huge miscast, she should’ve been playing the lawyer instead of Amara Karan
2) The mini-series is NOT a murder mystery or Crime Drama or anything of that sort.It’s a cinematographic-crime-murder-mystery which is being captured by expressions of actors which got nothing to do with solving the crime.
3) Unnecessary sub-plots not impacting the story-line
