Space Force: The Comedy Satire for the Trump Era

Steve Carell and Greg Daniels have reteamed following The Office to bring us Space Force, a ripe comedy satire for the Trump era. Steve Carell–playing four-star general Mark R. Naird–is the perfect guy to lead the United States Space Force.  Naird dreamed of running the United States Air Force.  Alas, those dreams were not meant to be.  So now, Mark, his wife, Maggie (Lisa Kudrow), and their daughter, Erin (Diana Silvers), leave the comfort of…

The Good Place: The Complete Series Hits Blu-ray

The Good Place: The Complete Series is now available on Blu-ray after the fan-favorite NBC sitcom ended its run in January. Some series are lucky to extend beyond their initial order.  Other series get the back nine order and might get a renewal.  In other instances, a series will last a nice six seasons.  Or run far beyond their expiration point.  However, series creator Mike Schur decided The Good Place was perfect with lasting four…

#BlackAF Has A Jewish Problem

One of the most notable problems that comes with the series premiere of #BlackAF is that the series has a major Jewish problem. The problem with the series premiere comes late in the episode–just around the 7:38 mark.  It’s when Kenya and Joya Barris (Kenya Barris and Rashida Jones) are having a conversation with Kenya’s assistant, Danny (Gil Ozeri).  At first, the conversation deals with sweatsuits and then it evolves Kenya pointing out to his…

The Plot Against America Feels Very Realistic

The Plot Against America is a very realistic look at what the early 1940s could have looked like if Charles Lindbergh had been elected as president. What the world could have been.  This is not something any of us really want to think about.  A world without the Holocaust or persecution against Jewry is something I think about all the time.  And yet, it’s very well possible that something like what we see in this…

Hillary: Four Hours Is Worth It For Clinton

Whether or not you’re a fan of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Hulu documentary series offers insight into both her life and marriage. The four-part documentary series runs in at 253 minutes.  It’s a worthy commitment to binge-watch in one day but the decision is totally worth it.  It’s how I spent my Sunday afternoon following the end of a very long week. Before I go any further, I’ll disclaim that I am…

Hunters: This Series Isn’t For Everyone

Amazon’s newest television series, Hunters, follows a team of Nazi Hunters–led by Meyer Offerman–living in New York City in 1977. To say that the first half of the series didn’t sit well with me would not be an understatement.  The tone is somewhere closer to Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds than Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List.  Don’t even think about comparisons to Best Picture nominee Jojo Rabbit because the two couldn’t be more different in tone. Where…

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 3 Is Here

Amazon surprised us all by dropping season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel a few hours earlier but the third season is the best season yet. The series takes us away from the Catskills and on the road with Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan).  This season, Midge is on tour for the first time and opening up for Shy Baldwin (Leroy McClain).  That’s not to say that we don’t miss out on New York City…

Disney+: The Streaming Wars Are Here

With today’s launch of Disney+ and Disney unleashing their film vault, it marks the real start of the streaming war with the likes of Netflix and Apple TV+. The key difference between Disney+ and Apple TV+ is that Disney has more options available.  It’s that simple.  They have an entire film vault unopened and then some.  Nobody is really subscribing to Disney+ because they want to watch some of the new things.  Well, they might. …

The Morning Show: A TV Drama for the #MeToo Era

The Morning Show is the definitive television drama series for the #MeToo era and the Apple TV+ series could not be more timelier with its commentary. We’re over two years into the start of the #MeToo movement.  While some series have offered commentary in terms of references, The Morning Show goes big.  It isn’t just that the series is ripped out of the headlines but Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) could easily be a stand-in for…
