This week we tackle Hulu’s Ramy. We talk about the shows that came before it and how the focus on religion really makes the show stand out. We also talk about Toy Story 4 and the new Stranger Things.
This week we cried watching Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us. We talked about DuVernay’s ongoing project with her work, the broken booking system, and the lessons parents have to teach for survival in a world that devalues them.
This week we talk about HBO’s Chernobyl. We discussed the history of the event, the Cold War as a lens, and the politics of the show.
This week we unlock the door with the key of imagination, we cross over into The Twilight Zone. We talk about comedy’s role in a social and political space, deals with the devil, and the divisiveness of GoT’s final season.
Yo bitch! This week we revisit Breaking Bad. We talk about how purposeful the pilot is, the legacy of the show, and the show’s dark metaphor for the American dream. Grab your tighty whities because we have to cook and throw pizzas on the roof.
This week we review I Am The Night, the new limited series about the Black Dahlia Murders. We talk about the issues surrounding being mixed race/ interracial and unethical journalist.
This week we review Netflix’s new show The Umbrella Academy. We talk about X-men, anti-heroes, and bad parenting.
This week we get stuck in a time loop with Netflix’s Russian Doll. We talk about other media that use the groundhog day premise and the role of the pilot in the Netflix/streaming era.
This week we go back to the ’80s (again) with Showtime’s Black Monday. We talk about how this show is a refutation MAGA, the spawns of Wolf of Wall Street, and the recent trend of “strong women behind powerful men.”
