This week’s episode seems to be filled with bleaker content… it wasn’t planned that way, but hang in there.
First Dhani discusses the rom-com Nobody’s Fool. She talks about how Tyler Perry always creates male characters that say the right thing and work for the women who watch. 🙂
Next, Dhani talks about a documentary on Netflix called Abducted in Plain Sight. This is tough subject matter, but it is quite a story that is a cautionary tale to all families.
Moving on to TV, Dhani first talks about the new show I Am The Night based on the true story of Fauna Hodel’s autobiography. It looks to be an interesting series directed by Patty Jenkins.
The next show Dhani talks about is the live airing of RENT. Or the almost live production. Because this is her favorite musical, she was underwhelmed.
The next show we discuss is the ending of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Dhani really enjoyed the way it ended and feels it is one of the funniest shows ever.
Finally, Dhani watched a brand new show on Netflix called Russian Doll. She appreciates the female team of creators, writers, and directors because she believes that made the lead character, Nadia, feel more real with her trauma and the insane situation she finds herself in.
For the Actors’ Corner this week, we chose Whoopi Goldberg. We discuss the movies of hers that we love, like, didn’t like, secretly love and haven’t seen.
