Random Acts of Flyness
Writer/director/producer/genius Terence Nance is behind this show “about the beauty and ugliness of contemporary American life,” as he says. Using a fluid, stream-of-conscience approach, Nance explores cultural idioms such as patriarchy, white supremacy and sensuality via numerous interconnected vignettes. The show weaves together such themes as ancestral trauma, history, death, romance and more, creating a television show like nothing seen before. All this is experienced through the lens of art, music, and pop culture.

Dead To Me

The ladies meet at a support group and, despite their polar-opposite personalities, become unlikely friends – but there’s a kept secret that could shatter their lives.
This dark comedy explores the weirdly funny sides of grief, loss and forgiveness. Watch it now on Netflix.
Westworld is back with a much anticipated third season. This is by far the most eerily captivating series that hit us. It is also extremely binge worthy as the folding out of the narrative allows you to see the full scope of the twisting, time-bending story. Set in an Old West theme park where robots (that look EXTREMELY human, we might add) are at human disposal for whatever dark urges they may possess, Westworld is a perfect hybrid of pulpy fantasy and sci-fi, packing in HBO’s signature grandiose spectacle alongside a heavy dose of brain-twisters. Let me tell you, it’s a wild ride!
This show is handcrafted for binge-watching as each episode ends on a mouth-watering cliff hanger. TV’s quirky darling, Natasha Lyonne plays Nadia, a woman who dies the night of her birthday party, only to wake up and keep reliving the night (and her many, many) deaths over and over again. Working from a script she created with Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland this series is cheeky and provocative, not to mention deliciously foul-mouthed. Equal parts hilarious and heart-breaking, delving into self-destructive loops that lend themselves to self-forgiveness.
Watch season 1 now on Netflix and impatiently wait for season 2 with us.
