Made in Heaven Watchalong Episode 4! The Episode Where Everything Changes
This is such a stark turning point in the series. Good structure, exactly halfway. It is also the turning point when I decided I truly truly hated the Shashank voice over.Continue reading
Made in Heaven Watchalong Episode 3! Deepti Naval!!!!!!
Woo-hoo, Deepti! And also a bunch of horrible children. But hey, it wouldn’t be an exploration of Indian class and society if we didn’t have some horrible children up in here. To balance, most every episode after this has Horrible Parents.Continue reading

All the excitement of Shashifest distracted me. Sorry! Anyway, here it is.Continue reading

All right, let’s do this! From our own isolated work at home places, we all watch an episode a day, and then come together to talk about it.Continue reading
DCIB Community Anti-Isolation Plan! We are gonna totally hang out online!
I’m going out of town this weekend, weird timing I know but it’s a family thing that is worth doing no matter what. But starting next week, all home all the time and I am going to be going INSANE! As are many of you. So, I have a plan! Which will be constantly evolving as I think of other things, and as you suggest brilliant ideas. Really, suggest on this post, I’m open to anything. Heck, if we can figure out group video calling, I’m down for that.Continue reading
Made in Heaven Discussion Post: 8 Things I Want in Season 2
Final post! Views have slowed down rapidly, but the nice thing with a streaming series is, I can just have these posts available and wait for more people to finish the series and then come check in. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Character Discussion Post: Ahil/Jim and Faiza/Kalki
Last character post! I have a lot to say about these two, because it feels like there are a lot of interpretations of them, and the series never really landed on one or the other.

Made in Heaven Character Discussion Post: Shivani/Jazz and Shashank/Kabir
I’m combining these two, because their storyline was so interwoven in this season. Plus, interest in the MiH posts is dwindling so I want to get them over with. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Wednesday Watching Post: What Are You Reading and Watching and Thinking and Listening to This Week?
Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week after Daylight Savings started! I am delighted to drive home with the sun still out, but I am also very sleepy and looking forward to the weekend.Continue reading
Made in Heaven LAST EPISODE, Episode 9: Runaway Brides
Well, that took me 48 hours to finish! A sign of a very good show, considering I had to go to work in the middle of that. And sleep. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Episode 8: Politicians and the Rewards of Doing the Right Thing
Finally, some happy couples! Of course, they are the ones who mostly avoid the whole wedding insanity. Which is why we only seem to see bad people in this show, the ones who buy into the need for the expensive showy wedding. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Episode 7 Review, the Royals
Well, this is a fascinating episode! In some ways it feels too simple, in others too complicated. But the way the story brings out surprising contrasting emotions in Arjun and Sobhita, that surprised me. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Episode 6 Review: Munglik
This is a definite “it all falls down” kind of episode. After the holding pattern of the last episode, everything happens all of a sudden. And because of that, the wedding story gets a bit short shrift. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Review, Episode 5: the NRI and Sex
This was kind of a sad episode! I want more happy ones, like the Sikhs in the second episode. Or even the Deepti episode, that was happy in the end. But the last two, just SAD! (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Mini-Review, Episode 4: Dowry and the Value of a Woman
Blech, that voice over has GOT to go!!!!! There’s a great moment in this episode, very powerful, which is immediately undercut by the stupid stupid voice over. This might have been my favorite episode of the series so far, except the voice over just destroys it. (oh, and index of all my Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made in Heaven Series Review, Episode 2: The Sikhs and the Stars
I put up a review of episode 1 already, I’m going this show episode by episode because it breaks down tidily into separate stories unlike Humsafar or Sacred Games. This also makes it way WAY easier for me to review, since I can do short little reviews episode by episode instead of trying to binge the whole thing and then review the whole thing. (full index of Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Made In Heaven Prime Series Mini-Review, Episode 1: Delhi Industrialists
What a fun show! And part of the fun is that each episode is it’s own distinct storyline, which means I can do fun little mini-reviews of each episode instead of trying to kill myself watching the whole season and doing one review real quick. (full index of Made in Heaven reviews is here)Continue reading
Upcoming Non-Hindi Movies!!! Prime Series and Malayalam Excitement!
Well, this is a sign! I am excited about two upcoming things, and neither of them are traditional Hindi theatrical releases. Not only that, both of them were tweeted/promoted by mainstream Hindi film people, so the industry is paying more attention outside of Hindi theatrical releases too.Continue reading
