TV and Bad Movies

I mostly watch/write about movies, which all get neatly indexed here. Sometimes I make lists of movies I’ve seen or of ones I’d like to see, which get gathered here. But sometimes I’ll watch some TV episodes/seasons or the last ten minutes of some crappy movies, and write notes on those.
