TV Snide: For August 2021

TV of the Month: The White Lotus - Season 1 (HBO Max): nobody has ever gotten into the mind of a beach resort as well as this show. Steve Zahn, Connie Britton, and Molly Shannon are the biggest names of a powerful ensemble that digs into the class warfare that happens when the layers of the onion are peeled at a Hawaii resort. Jennifer Coolidge of Mrs. Stifler American Pie fame needs to be guaranteed a bunch of awards as the loony, spacey older single woman, and Murray Bartlett plays the best hotel manager since John Cleese in Fawlty Towers, and is even clearly inspired by the master comic Cleese. It’s like an Agatha Christie novel if she included hilariousness and shocking sex in her oeuvre. 5 out of 5 stars

Novel of the Month (tie): Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid: In any other month, this would be atop the pop-culture list by a mile. But this was an extraordinary pop-culture month. Reid’s follow up to her legendary Daisy Jones and the Six is likely her masterpiece. It centers on the biggest party of the year in Nina Riva’s cliff-side mansion but, in doing so, unveils the story of the Riva family through generations. Mick Riva is the centerpiece as the Frank Sinatra-like figure who has commitment issues with his wife June and their children. The kids - Nina, Jay, Hud, and Kat - are all surfers who make their way to the end of the story the best they can with the cards they’ve been dealt. 5 out of 5 stars 

Novel of the Month (tie): The Final Girls by Riley Sager: This is the first of three horror-thriller books already out from someone who has already vaulted near the top of my favorite authors. A true page-turner that would could make for the best film of the genre in years, it twists and turns through multiple mass killings, all of which have one thing in common: a lone survivor. The premise is perfect and the sociological commentary of our modern obsession with the news cycle and niche communities of people obsessed by some of those news stories and the characters involved is truly scary in real life, as it is in this fiction. I can’t wait to read Sanger’s next two thrillers. 5 out of 5 stars

Outer Banks - Season 2 (Netflix): This heart-pounding young-adult-aimed show keeps satisfying as one of the best things on these days. The lower-class Pogues continue their quest to get back the gold that’s rightfully theirs, but the rich folks keep foiling them at every turn. The biggest cliffhanger yet leaves us waiting (probably for at least a year) at the end of the season’s final episode. 4.5 out of 5 stars

Bridge and Tunnel - Season 1 (Epix on Sling TV): Edward Burns was one of my favorite indie rom-com actors and directors in the 1990s. He's back now as the dad in this story of kids home from college in Long Island and trying to figure out what's next in life, possibly in nearby NYC. 4 out of 5 stars

  1. I can't praise Programming Homework
    Help
    services enough, except for the previous order. It wasn't completed and sent in time. There were also a lot of mistakes and a few plagiarism issues, too, but I'm glad they came in and resolved the issue quite fast. Please make an effort to match experts with the right orders. The previous Python Homework Help must have been an amateur, though I appreciate his food knowledge. He only needs some experience to be perfect.

  2. My lecturer gave us an assignment almost at the end of the semester when we were supposed to be preparing for our examinations. I had to choose between studying for the exams and completing the assignment and going to the exams unprepared. So I paid for Statistics Homework Help on statisticshomeworkhelper.com. Then, I used the same Statistics Assignment Help expert's services for revising. After my results, I can confirm that working with the expert was a win-win. His assignment results were perfect, and I also scored most of the things he taught me right in the exams.

  3. I need Matlab Homework Help services but can't see the prices. So how do I go about it? It's a Matlab emergency order with 20 questions, and it's due in the next 2 days. The Matlab Assignment Help task is not so complicated, because I'm a first-year student and it's my end-semester exam. Please let me know how to go about the order placement process.

  4. I always show them my good side and I'm extremely grateful for that. There's no single time that I've ever run into an issue, neither have I failed before with their expert Economics Assignment Help. I'm not sure if everyone else always gets the same treatment as mine, but I want to believe that the service is what makes them loyal customers. Otherwise, your Economics Homework Help is worth the investment. I'll keep you posted in case of more.

  5. I got the best Programming Assignment Help services from their experts, who showed the highest level of expertise and professionalism. Handling my project faster than expected was the best thing they could do to it, especially given that I also wanted some revision time with the paper and solutions. I'm glad I was able to understand a few more C concepts from the properly-arranged solutions. Cheers to the C Homework Help tutor!

  6. I often use statistics Homework HelpS because they never fail. However, statisticshomeworkhelper.com isn't consistent with their prices. I gave up trying to find a model that could help me predict their prices. I think there should be a hint about their pricing criteria to help students have adequate preparation before submitting their assignments for help. Meanwhile, apart from the unpredictable price, I love everything else about the platform's Statistics Assignment Help.

I've established trust now, and I'll keep coming back to get more projects to be completed by their senior Matlab Homework Help experts. I'll share their good gospel with my friends, too. Thanks for the top mark.

  8. Hi. Thanks a bunch for giving me grades that I never expected from economicshomeworkhelper.com. I only used the organization's Economics Assignment Help out of desperation, but it helped me discover that there is likely no better online service like it. I highly recommend the platform and this Economics Homework Help provider (the poster). He's such a fast and professional economist.

  9. Java isn't my cup of tea, but I'm confident that the Programming Assignment Help services are going to make a difference. I'm waiting for their solutions for the firstC++ Homework Help order that I've just sent. I believe that they're going to help me pass and understand some of the major concepts of the programming language.

  10. Statistics became harder than I thought before I joined the university. To make it worse, my lecturer wasn't the type of person that explains concepts deeply. So it was everyone for himself. Then I started the hunt for where I could getStatistics Homework Help online and bumped into statisticshomeworkhelper.com. I considered myself lucky to meet this trustworthy expert at my first attempt. He's a one-of-a-kindR Homework Help specialist.

  11. Looking for a master’s levelMatlab homework help solver. I am starting my image processing project but I don’t have time for it. I want aMatlab assignment help expert who will work on it from start to finish. Our professors like it worked step by step so that they can check and return comments for corrections. The tutor I want will be receiving the comments, correcting them, and then returning them to the professor. Once they are corrected and given a go-ahead to continue the tutor will then go ahead to the next chapter until the project is completed. Let me know whether they have someone who can do that.
