But I guess in some way, I knew that…

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…
