I found Bright Star charming but a couple of tonal hiccups really surprised me. As when news of infanticide is greeted with a mellow little ditty. If there ever was an opportunity for a murder ballad -- especially considering that the score is country/bluegrass -- this was it. My review's here.

I won't lie: I'm cheesed off that Carl got shot in the eye and got a cool patch, while Denise got shot in the eye and got a fresh grave. As for Carol, can we have any character coherence? Is that too much to ask? My take on last night's episode of The Walking Dead is here.

It was a great week for revivals as I saw She Loves Me and The Robber Bridegroom back to back. Completely different shows, and both incredibly pleasurable. My joint review's here.
I've been an Olyfan (sorry!) since 1996, when I saw him in Santaland Diaries. I finally got to talk to him in conjunction with his return to the Atlantic, in Kenneth Lonergan's lovely Hold On to Me Darling. Click here for the interview.
