    I just finished the “8 Second” episode of You. I don’t know if I go any further.
    I’m going to start Spinning Out (figure skating drama) and Cheer (docuseries) when I have time. Heard some good things.

    I thought AJ and The Queen was a movie. Yea, after a couple episodes, after looking forward to it.. it’s shockingly not that good. But I hope it gets good reviews all the same. Seems fitting that Ru got a good acting gig like this.
    He’s certainly responsible for so many others in acting. And he mostly just gets new hosting gigs.

    Thanks for sharing that!! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who's OBSESSED with that theme song. It might be my favorite part of the show

    The Outsider - my my, Jason Bateman is killing it. What a talent! Between this, Ozark, and classic Arrested Development he’s got a legacy any actor would be envious of. It’s always thrilling to see a comedic actor effortlessly and flawlessly pull off dramatic roles, and he’s proving to be one of the best. I can’t wait to see where this show goes! I’m not familiar with the book, so I’m watching it with absolutely no clue as to what happens next.

    And I’ve been looking forward to season 3 of Ozark. It’s one of the few new shows I’ve kept up with over the last few years.

    CHEER on Netflix is probably my favorite docu-series they've ever put out (That isn't, you know, a true crime series. Because Netflix corners that market.)

    This show had so much heart and life lessons you can apply to almost anything. Because those young people are going through it.
    CHEER follows a collegiate team as they prepare for the NCA Championships in Daytona.

    I never really thought much about competitive cheer leading. I certainly didn't realize that it is perhaps the most athletic, most dangerous sport there is. Really, it's almost not worth it. It's so hard on the body, there is almost no way to turn it into something lucrative after college. There aren't any pro cheer leaders making millions and millions of dollars in sport prize money or contracts.
    And you have such a short window in the sport because of how much it breaks your body down..

    but that's not what the show is about. I think the message of the show is that we're all just on one team. And we're all going through, coming from, and surviving through some really awful shit. But if we are to have a future we have to work together.. because at the end of the day no matter how much worse your life is than mine or vice-a-versa.. if we want to make our lives successful in the future we have to do it together as a team and that is going to require so much hard work.

    I wouldn't think you'd enjoy this if you can't at least binge half of it. It's 6 episodes an hour each. You really invest in each athlete they spotlight. It's not a gift I have at explaining things.. but I promise you if you give this show a chance you will not have dry eyes at the end. and what an ending with so many twists and turns omg.. my nerves almost couldn't handle it.

    Encore! on Disney+

    What a DELIGHT! They take a bunch of adults who, years ago, did a musical in High School, and they bring them back together to recreate the show. They get to work with theatre professionals, they have to put up the show in less than a week and it is fantastic! It's at turns hilarious, moving, inspiring and just all around lovely. Each episode is a different cast, different show, from a different year. SO awesome.
