Because, aviously…

As Season 1 comes to an end (an overview of the show can be found here), the story of John O’Neill is intriguing. The CIA and FBI, had they been capable of working together, quite possibly could’ve stopped 9/11 in its tracks…but politics and bureaucracy got in the way. The show does a good job …

My next bracket, after the Disney vs. Pixar and Netflix brackets is a showdown between Amazon and Hulu. I debated doing each first-round matchup as Amazon vs Hulu…but (**Spoiler Alert**) Amazon would’ve destroyed Hulu. So instead they won’t see each other until the Championship (**/End spoiler**). SWEET SIXTEEN Mozart in the Jungle vs. Patriot – …

Episode 3, with Malala Yousafzai, was a bore, hence why I didn’t write about it… I couldn’t get thru the full episode, as Dave tried humor and it just wasn’t working with her…also, and a likely unpopular opinion, I’m not entirely enthralled with her story. But David Letterman’s special has now reached the second half of …

La Casa de Papel Part 2 dropped this weekend, and now that the American audiences have clamored over it (after the successful Part 1) Netflix has fully rebranded it as Money Heist and made “English audio” the seeming default for the Spanish language show. Our cast of city named thieves are continuing their takeover of the …

What if I told you that this show was terrible? Well, that would be false. But if I told you you’d enjoy it, you shouldn’t disagree. But look away, and don’t take in the troubles that the Baudelaire’s have to face in Season 2. The banker (K. Todd Freeman) is still clueless *cough*, the narrator …

While some of last season’s had their moments, others were absolute duds. This year follows a similar theme, but …

Collateral is a Netflix Limited Series, together with the BBC2, using just four episodes to tell the story. A pizza delivery went wrong, as the delivery man is shot leaving the house…was it a murder? A targeted hate crime? Or was it somehow tied to a Labour Party member? The show is quick paced and an …

Gad Elmaleh, a Moroccan-French-Jewish comedian, has shown up on Netflix for his first English comedy special. He discusses speaking a foreign language and learning the terminology, most importantly putting the right emphasis on the right syllable (that line works better orally…it’s all written the same); as well as the differences between Americans and French/Moroccans…from how cabs work …

Love is back for a third (and what’s supposed to be final) season. Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) have turned their relationship into one that people can seemingly strive for, but they can’t seem to escape from Randy and Bertie (Mike Mitchell and Claudia O’Doherty), and a getaway to Palm Springs may be the right …
