Ep 57 – Too much to talk about

11-29-19We are back after taking another couple weeks off and there is a lot for Dhani to catch John up on!

First, Dhani talks about Frozen 2 and how she likes it better than the first movie!  She didn’t think that was going to be possible, but it is in all aspects of the film.  

Next, Dhani saw Terminator: Dark Fate.  For nostalgia reasons, she enjoyed it.  As a stand alone, she thought it wasn’t the best.  

Then both John and Dhani watched Noelle on Disney +.  They explained that you need to like Anna Kendrick to enjoy the movie… which they do, so it was enjoyable to them.  

Moving on to TV, Dhani wanted to talk about Limetown (Facebook Watch) first.  She loved this series and whether or not there will be a second season, doesn’t matter to her.  

Next is a new show called Back to Life (Showtime) created by Daisy Haggard.  She really liked this show and thought it was a new, interesting story to be told. 

Then Dhani talks about the latest season of American Horror Story: 1984 (FX).  This wasn’t her favorite season of the show, but it wasn’t the worst either.  Solidly in the middle and good performances by all involved. 

Next is a special from Mike Birbiglia called The New One (Netflix).  Both Dhani and John watched this together and they enjoyed the first half a lot, but maybe had trouble relating to the second half.  Still recommended to all, especially those with kids.  

Finally, they talk about Disney+ and all of the great movies and shows available to watch with the service.  They are loving all of the original shows as well as the documentaries on the service.  You can find old movies and new movies and so many you had forgotten about.  Love it and a great price for what you are getting.  

To finish things, Dhani wanted to mention the few new shows of the season that she is still really enjoying at the middle of the season.  These are The Unicorn, Prodigal Son, and Nancy Drew.  

In the Actors’ Corner Dhani and John discuss Kristen Bell and the movies and shows of hers that they love, like, hate, secretly love, and haven’t seen. 

Ep 56 – Way Too Long

11-10-19This week we ended up talking for a lot longer than we ever have!  

First, Dhani talks about Last Christmas.  Then she talks about the movie American Son (Netflix).  She stresses how important it is for everyone to watch!  Next is a documentary called Tell Me Who I Am (Netflix) which is a compelling story about twin brothers and what happens when one got amnesia at a young age.  

Moving to television, Dhani starts by discussing the second season of Jack Ryan (Amazon Prime).  She didn’t enjoy this season as much as the first, but hopes for a third nonetheless.  Next is The Kominsky Method (Netflix), which was the opposite… she liked this second season more than the first.  

Moving on to discuss the shows on Apple TV+.  First Dhani talks about For All Mankind… she has only watched the first episode and isn’t sure if she will continue to watch.  Next is Dickinson, which has a twist in the presentation of it and she hopes to finish the season.  Finally, she talks about The Morning Show and the 4 episodes that have come out so far.  Dhani has some major reservations about the show so far, but she is waiting to finish the season in hopes that they are ironed out.  

Next, both Dhani and John discuss the comedy special Lobby Baby by Seth Meyers (Netflix).  They both enjoyed this special so much!

The next show Dhani talks about is The Affair (Showtime) and the end of the show.  She learned to appreciate by the end of the series how different it was in the story it was telling.  

And finally, they both talk about the latest season of The Great British Bake Off (Netflix).  They love this show so much and enjoy every second of it.  They highly recommend to everyone, no matter if you don’t like baking or anything.  Looking forward to the next season!

In the Actors’ Corner, they decided to do something different this week.  Their “blind” spin to find an actor landed on 2 Fast 2Furious, which John had issues with any of the stars.  So we decided to go through the entire cast and discuss our favorite projects of each.  At least that’s what Dhani thought they were doing… John did something else.  🙂

Ep 55 – I’m a Full Blown Adult

10-27-19We 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.  

Ep 54 – Some Good and Some Not

10-20-19We are back with lots to cover!!

First, Dhani saw Zombieland Double Tap!  She was so excited to see this sequel and was not disappointed.  The next movie Dhani discusses is El Camino : A Breaking Bad Movie (Netflix).  This was exactly what she didn’t know she needed and thanks Vince Gilligan for making it.  

The next movie Dhani watched was In The Tall Grass (Netflix).  This is based on a Stephen King novella, but the movie did not live up to what she wanted.  Another movie failed to live up to her expectations is Fractured (Netflix).  

Moving on to TV Dhani wanted to talk about some more new shows that have started.  First, she talks about Almost Family (FOX).  She loves the cast and it started out well, but she is waiting to see if they can keep it interesting. 

Next, Dhani discusses Batwoman (CW).  Again, she likes the storyline, but is waiting for Ruby Rose to get used to her role on the show. 

The next show Dhani talks about is Nancy Drew (CW).  This is one of her favorite new shows this year and is recommending it to everyone! 

Even though Arrow (CW) isn’t a new show, because it is Dhani’s favorite and it is ending (sad), she wanted to talk about the show’s premiere and how wonderful it was.  

The next new show Dhani wanted to talk about is Limetown (Facebook Watch).  She loves this show!  So much mystery and Jessica Biel is fantastic.  

And finally, Dhani talks about The Politician (Netflix).  She is struggling to finish the series and isn’t sure of the point of it.  But she does think she will finish eventually.

Another Netflix doc that Dhani watched was Hello, Privilege It’s Me Chelsea from Chelsea Handler.  This is a great documentary to watch that leads to alot of discussion and feels that everyone should watch and get real.

Moving to TV Dhani discusses the “reboot” of BH90210.  She wishes they had done an actual reboot of the original, but it taking what she can get and hopes they do more!  Next Dhani watched Criminal: UK (Netflix) and talks about the different iterations on Netflix and she hopes to watch them all.  Next, John joins in as they discuss the return of Ghost Hunters (A&E) and their thoughts on the new team Grant has put together.  And finally, they revisit Jane The Virgin and how John is still enjoying the show through the first season.
