Dark Matter (SyFy) season 3

Alicia and get around to review Dark Matter after watching the first two seasons.  The series are on us and we were excited to see the 3rd season come out.  But highly disappointed to know it was the last season.  

When crew members working on a derelict spaceship awaken from stasis, they have no memory of who they are or how they got onto the vessel. The only clues to their identities are weaponry and a destination. They must band together to fight off the threats they face on a voyage filled with vengeance, betrayal and secrets.  The sci-fi series is based on the graphic novel of the same name.

insecure season 2 HBO review

Alicia and I return with our review of the critically acclaimed series insecure by Issa Rae.  We took a minute to get to look at this amazing series because of the many new and interesting shows coming out this year but we really missed another great season Issa Rae has created.  Check out our thoughts of this outstanding AfricanAmerican HBO series.

We missed the review for the first season of Master of none by one of our favorite character comedians Aziz Ansari.  He returns after being broken hearted by his last white girlfriend and escapes to Italy to get away.  But returns back to New york with some uniquely created episodes.

Ansari plays the role of Dev, a New York-based actor who is struggling to identify what he really wants, both personally and professionally. The series reveals glimpses of Dev's younger years, and explores current aspects of his life, including modern etiquette (regarding texting and social media), and being young and single in the city.

Alicia and I sit down and go through or best and worst TV shows of the year. We had some amazing TV series that the streaming services created and we really had a great time binge watching these series.  Unlike the theatrical movie releases, TV really created some serious well worth watching series. Some of these shows were international some were from smaller known creators.besttvshows2017.jpg

This episode Alicia and I review the popular Netflix series Stranger Things.  I did a quick blog on the first season of Stranger things last year but we wanted to do a podcast on thisseason because of how much we enjoyed the first.  We have different perspectives from season to season but overall listen as we share our view.

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
