WestWorld season 3 (HBO)

Alicia and I get into the 3rd season of the acclaimed HBO series WestWorld.  As extraordinary as the first 2 seasons were, we didn't know what to expect from this season because it seems as though it ended as a mystery not as a continuation.  Here's our thoughts

The Outsider

Based on Stephen King's best-selling novel of the same name, "The Outsider" begins by following an investigation which at first seems like it will be simple and straightforward but things change as it leads into the gruesome murder of a young boy by a seasoned cop. When an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case, it leads the investigators to question everything they believe in.

Chernobyl (HBO)

We sit down and watch the mini series depicting the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Russia.  The gritty and powerful depiction of the events during that time was interesting and captivating.  The previews made me put this on the list of something Alicia and I had to watch

The team jumps into our thoughts on the dem’s running and what is the criteria to get on stage for the upcoming debates. We debate the Facebook vs. Twitter information deal and how information is critical. We also end the show talking about the Chernobyl HBO series and the Netflix series “When they see us” by Ava Duvenay. Which will be part of our upcoming Podcast.

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

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.
