The Big Sick

With this episode Alicia wanted me to take the time and watch a movie that I was avoiding based on the sappiness of this love story. But because of the Golden Globe nominations, this critically acclaimed movie based on the comedian's real life, was something we had to see in order to compare the nominees on the list or what actors or actresses should have been nominated.

Kumail is a Pakistani comic who meets an American graduate student named Emily at one of his stand-up shows. As their relationship blossoms, he soon becomes worried about what his traditional Muslim parents will think of her. When Emily suddenly comes down with an illness that leaves her in a coma, Kumail finds himself developing a bond with her deeply concerned mother and father

Alicia and I fall head first in this twisted but enjoyable supernatural time traveling TV series from Netflix.  This German saga tells the story of three different eras that effects four different family unbeknownst of their history and relationship to each other over the last 66 years.

When two children go missing in a small German town, its sinful past is exposed along with the double lives and fractured relationships that exist among four families as they search for the kids. The mystery-drama series introduces an intricate puzzle filled with twists that includes a web of curious characters, all of whom have a connection to the town's troubled history -- whether they know it or not. The story includes supernatural elements that tie back to the same town in 1986. "Dark" represents the first German original series produced for Netflix
