This 1950's period piece off Amazon Prime starts GREAT, quickly glides down to good, then by episode 1:4 boogies into boring and stays so firmly stuck there I honestly don't care at this point what season two even holds (it inexplicably trades Manhattan for Paris, I'm informed), though I'll cheerfully admit this is a well-acted, visually-striking series that hits some pitch-perfect high notes while it's briefly in top form. After episode one I thought this was 'a keeper for all-time' (anyone?) but it's challenging to sustain that sort of momentum, and this show couldn't do it despite the best efforts of its spectacularly high energy cast.

What you end up with is The Occasionally Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

I'd give it an A+ for setting and performances, a C- for plot, and call it an overall B.

Das was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich noch merkwürdiger. (What does not kill me makes me stranger.)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
