We are back with lots of good new shows to discuss, but first, Dhani saw Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. She didn’t enjoy it as much as the first one, and thought it was a bit too long, but didn’t think it was a total dud.
Moving on to TV, Dhani first talks about the series Why Women Kill (CBS All Access). She didn’t think this needed an entire season, but would have been enjoyable as a movie.
Next, she and John talk about the show Modern Love (Amazon Prime). She really enjoyed this show more than she thought she would. She loves the message of the entire series and each episode being its own story was a nice change.
The next show Dhani watched is Living With Yourself (Netflix) starring Paul Rudd. This is a serious take on the concept previously seen in the movie Multiplicity. It’s really well told and a great way to enjoy Paul Rudd.
Next, Dhani wanted to touch on a few new shows that are back. The first is the second season of The Purge (USA). She really likes the way this season is going in that we are seeing the effects of The Purge throughout the following year. It’s quite interesting and she can’t wait to see what happens to these new characters.
The next show is Castle Rock (HULU) and in this second season we have an entirely new story that stars Lizzy Kaplan and Tim Robbins. Lizzy is actually playing a young Annie Wilkes… Kathy Bates’ character fro Misery. And she is doing a superb job. Here we are seeing exactly what ails Annie and perhaps how she ends up being the person we know her to be in the future.
Finally, Dhani and John watched It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown this week. John hadn’t watched it in decades and Dhani wanted to hear his thoughts on it after all this time. It’s a classic and takes us back to a simpler time.
In the Actors’ Corner this week, Dhani and John discuss the work of Michael Douglas. they name the movies they love, like, hate, secretly love, haven’t seen and want to watch.
