The Deuce (HBO)

Alicia and finally get around to see our iconic 42nd street put into a TV series.  We talk about our time in downtown Manhattan and different aspects of the sex trade in NYC that the TV series shows. 

 "The Deuce" tells of the germination of the sex-trade industry in the heart of New York's Times Square. It's the early 1970s, and the porn business begins a shift from organized crime-backed parlors to a legitimate, culturally accepted enterprise.

In 1951, cancerous cells from Henrietta Lacks lead to breakthroughs that change the face of medicine forever. Aided by writer Rebecca Skloot, Deborah Lacks embarks on a quest to learn about the mother she never knew.

Alicia and I reviewed this HBO movie produced by Oprah Winfrey because we read the book     The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks a few years ago and really felt that this was an important message about a remarkable African American woman that effected science forever. So we wanted to see if the movie would give the family and book justice.

Insecure HBO finale review

This episode we finally get to finish the HBO series "Insecure".  We left off at episode 4 and we get all the way to the season finale.  We get into the battle of the sexist debate on who was wrong or right that has been flooding the internet as well as a little personal perspective into the conversation. Enjoy

Westworld Movie/HBO Series

This episode we talk about the weird weird series of Westworld.  We made the decision to see the Westworld movie by Michael Crichton right after completing the series.  We then talk about some of the comparisons and get into the HBO series that had most folks stumped.  Very very interesting series.
