The Punisher (Netflix)

Big fan of the comic book character Frank Castle.  I convinced Alicia to sit and watch this series with me on Netflix.  First introduced on the Netflix Marvel Series Daredevil.  I eagerly awaited for his series to come out.  Here's the surprising review by Alicia and I.

After exacting revenge on the people responsible for the deaths of his wife and children, Frank Castle uncovers a conspiracy that runs deeper than New York's criminal underworld. Now known as the Punisher, he must dig deep into the conspiracy to discover the truth about injustices that affect more than just him and his family. Assisting the vigilante in his quest to fight criminals are best friend Billy Russo, who runs private military corporation Anvil, and former NSA analyst Micro, who shares common enemies with Castle and helps him as part of a so-called marriage of convenience.

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.

MINDHUNTER (Netflix)

On this episode, Alicia and I binge watch the new Netflix series by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, Mindhunter.  This psychological series about the FBI behavior science unit gets us in to the mind of the FBI agents that tried to figure out the deviant behaviors of these killers.  A slow but well worth it series.  

In the late 1970s two FBI agents expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. Mindhunter is an American crime drama web television series created by Joe Penhall, based on the true crime book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.

The Handmaid’s Tale Review

This episode Alicia and I jumps on the Hulu bandwagon and watches the new series "The Handmaid's Tale" based on the book by Margaret Atwood (a Canadian author).  A crazy alternative society that enslaves women and have a certain set of women used to bear children for the rich oligarchy.  We wanted to see this series because of the strangely relevant way we see this can happen due to the disrespect women are receiving from men in power.  Whether its the business sector or the government.

Today Alicia and I went to see the theatrical release of the Stephen Kings novel It.  We also went back and watched part one of the 1990 mini series.  Very interesting differences between the two movies as well as sticking to the same story line but in a modern way with updated special effects and a more sinister crazy ass clown

Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare -- an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town's children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise

For an out of the ordinary review, We decided on a new TV series on Starz to review.  The critically acclaimed novel "American Gods" created by Neil Gaiman comes to TV.  I mentioned this series to Alicia early last year because we both are big fans of Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies).  And this show has all the creative flair of the two of them in such different ways.  Check it out, it is partially complex but both horror and entertaining at the same time.   Here's the series summary.  Enjoy!!

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.  

00:0000:00

This episode we talk about the episodes proceeding episode 3.  We talk about the characters and the how each of them brings a little something to the show.  Some times aggravating as hell.  Other times just a great feeling of being proud.  This is a series well worth seeing.
