November Roundup, '17
A day late, with apologies (shit's going down behind the scenes, y'all, bear with)...
Watch This Shit:
- Future Man
Josh Hutcherson is a lame teenager who beats an unbeatable game and, as a "reward," gets recruited by time travelers to save the world. Not dissimilar to the plots of all the lame nerd movies Josh's characters knows and loves so well. But, #twist, this series is not so much lame! And, I must mention, he's got a healthy cum shooting range. Which, fair warning(/advertisement)... is not as up-close-and-personal as this series will get.
A British mother gives too many fucks than she should in an attempt to impress the other moms who "happily" give way too many fucks. Thankfully, she's got a couple definitely-don't-give-a-fuck friends who help her out.
- No Activity
Are you stuck on the night shift with nothing to do except get orgasms made out of head scratches? Then, this is the series for you. I haven't looked into it beyond watching the pilot, so I can only assume: it's probably heavily improvised and will most likely include a metric fuck-load of guest stars.
- She's Gotta Have It
So fucking necessary. #Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet
- The Trixie & Katya Show
- Who Killed Tupac?
If the title doesn't give it away completely: An investigator who actually gives a shit about Tupac reopens the ridiculously unsolved murder case, as a civilian.
Kinda boring, if I'm being real honest (which... when am I not?). I guess a bunch of kids were friends at some point, mostly because their parents were friends, and the grown folks probably killed one of the kids, cult sacrifice-style. This tore everyone apart and now one of them is extra lonely about it and is trying to reform the scooby gang. Oh, 'cause they're also probably mutants or something? I don't know, man. The Gifted is the official Marvel winner of this season (which is ironic since it's the one not being run by Marvel). Also, I was going to meet James Marsters at my local comic-con this year, but Hulu wouldn't let him leave at the last minute. So, even though there are plenty of Buffyverse alumni all over this show (I see you Kevin Weisman and Brigid Brannagh), I'm still too pissed off at Hulu to give it a good review.
Apparently single-motherhood is hella gross. And babies are fucking cute. (From an outside-looking-in/definitely-not-a-single-mother perspective.)
Don't Watch This Shit:
- The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All
At some point, we have to collectively say "enough is enough," don't we? In terms of true crime on TV, isn't enough enough when it's furthering the murderers' celebrity? Amplifying their voice? This shit used to be proper. Prison jumpers, dual static camera angles, and Barbara Walters being as judgey as one should be so that we all didn't have to be. Now it's "Watch my special, y'all, I got this bitch on the phone." This is the "Like my status" of homicide.
