Baltimore, Oscar, Kevin Spacey discussed on Stinger TV and Movie Podcast


Mean i just i just feel like it is fun fact this is actually based on a a bbc series of the same name which was about a parliament and so this is basically an americanized version of it and fun fact they film a lot of it or where did film a lot of it in baltimore near where i live also i'm looking at the cast here all right yes so big names that have been yes it out in addition to kevin spacey robin wright played claire underwood mahershala ali who just won an oscar for what what was that one green you watched it green green book okay okay i didn't know the name didn't yeah i am i didn't realize it okay kate mara neve campbell campbell rachel brosnahan who will talk about in minutes she was in that's okay i've only seen i think when we first started this podcast gave each other a little like challenge challenge to watch something that the person loved and it's interesting i realize now that neither one of us have completely finished the challenge the other one gave 'cause as you watched a lot of the walking dead more than i watched house of cards that was the challenge you gave me i watched i think two seasons of house of cards and i kind of feel very similar to what you just sad like there's just a lot of competition i liked it yeah i enjoyed it i thought it was very good but it's it hasn't been something that i've been compelled to to continue exactly the other shows out there so well the next show is one you absolutely will wanna finish watching it's yes dead to me and again these are are all on netflix on netflix this just premiered may third twenty nineteen and tons of buzz on social media about this show stars stars christina applegate linda carlini and james marsden there's one season only obviously just came out ten episodes thirty minutes it's like a movie you get bang that one i did on an airplane i loved it yup yup it was so good it has been renewed for season two but i mean i'm expecting that it'd be like another year before we see that probably yeah so dead to me is about a strong friendship that develops between gen a tightly wound widow and real estate agent and judy a free spirit with a shocking secret and i really elliot struggling yeah i'm struggling with how to explain this show without giving anything away because just one of those shows there are so many twists and turns that you don't expect and it's it's it's a beautiful i think it's a beautiful show is how i can explain it it's beautiful it is one thing i liked about it is in the very first episode they revealed something very shocking that i feel like most other shows that are not as cleverly written would have you know held off on that that secret until until later in the season but the fact that they introduced it straight up just created this dynamic right terry right exactly actly such as show and christina applegate i mean the acting was great in all of this but christina applegate specifically blew me away so very good show oh i would say this is this is for chicks or couples the men men would have heard many husbands are enjoying watching this their wives yeah i would agree that i would agree with that sure my husband didn't watch it but it's hard to get him to watch anything so i didn't either yeah well speaking of husbands i think the next show also a definitely appeal to men and husbands and that's daredevil this is part of the marble netflix universe which i love we all know anybody who who listens knows i just talked about jessica jones earlier just cajones is actually like a spin off of daredevil daredevil was the original the very first marvel net flicks series there are three seasons each with thirteen episodes and there are about fifty ish minutes and it has been canceled it's done and i think it wrapped up very again very well very satisfying ending overall the three seasons were almost equal in my eyes they were all very well done very satisfying and again the the number one thing with these shows is that you have a good villain with jessica jones her bill in in the first season kill grave was just incredible the villain daredevil is a criminal named wilson fisk and he's not really a mob boss but you kinda get that feeling this show stars charlie cox deborah and wall and elden henson so not names that we really know from anything else but all very good especially daredevil matt murdock himself charlie cox so the first season sees lawyer matt murdock using his his heightened senses to fight crime at night on the streets of new york city's hell's kitchen neighborhood now he got his heightened senses from being blinded as a young boy in an accident and he's got like kick ass martial arts skills and it's just fantastic like he can hear and everything's heightened he's kind of a superhero but also kind of a regular guy so that's what's really cool i think he's very relatable he undercovers a conspiracy of the criminal underworld led by wilson fisk and eventually as the seasons progress he has to make a decision whether he's going to hide from the world and be a criminal lawyer or embrace his life as a hero vigilante because he realizes he cannot do both i'm guessing he goes for vigilante i'm not gonna i'm not gonna say because well it's it's cancelled so they might have done a nice tidy they didn't they you did a nice ending but it's it's not i'm not gonna speak to that so what we have next so next is one that shannon and i know quite well and that is black mirror and i'll tell you why i mentioned earlier we do a podcast where we cover this show episode by episode so this is actually a british science fiction anthology television series created by charlie brooker which primarily focuses on humanity's relationship nations ship to technology and its consequences so this one has a bit of a complicated passed it was originally released december fourth twenty eleven and that was on bbc ran for two seasons and because it's british they have weird seasons so it ran the first season was twenty seven the second season was twenty thirteen gene and the net flicks picked it up an order three additional seasons so we're currently on season five we just actually concluded did all three episodes they're only three episodes for season five and the episode numbers and lengths vary by season so like for season five we had a movie a choose your own adventure movie called bender snatch and then we have three episodes but season four i think was like seven NS odes or six episodes so it's really really variable and i can't even give you cast because every episode is a standalone alone story that's why it's it's fun to watch you can come in at any time and that's why on our podcast we pick episodes that were interested in talking about but it may not necessarily surly being order they do get some pretty heavy hitters on the show and i want to mention some of the alumni that have been on the show daniel qaluwa who you might not know his name but he was in get out route and jodie whittaker the latest doctor who hayley atwell whose agent carter domino gleason who was the bad guy in star wars i don't know oh his name he's been in a bunch of stuff jon hamm bryce dallas howard latisha right who played cherie in black panther panther anthony mackie from the avengers toe for grace and most recently miley cyrus so a lot of big name stars so if all those people i want to be on that show then you know it's good it it is it is it's one of our favorites as fair said and rolling into our next ext fan favourite i feel like russian doll is a little bit almost a little bit like black mirror you know it's kind of a mind bender doesn't really deal with technology but but it deals with the unusual something unusual that's happening on show for sure yeah and i would say if there are any two shows on netflix that you guys haven't watched yet out of all these were mentioning russian doll dead to me you should just get on turner TV on right now and watch him again this is only like dead to me it's one season eight episodes thirty minutes each it's long movie and can i just say before you dive into russian doll it is a weird show and probably the first two episodes you're going to be going like w t f right right and i think it's when you episode three that you're like oh yeah and i actually love those kind of shows i love shows that slowly unravel and you're not really sure what's how'd you have to have the patience for it you have to that's why it helps to have someone saying and trust me stay right yes yes that was like umbrella academy i was like i don't know about the same and he say stay right yeah right so the one and only season of russian doll just came out this year february i twenty nineteen and it follows a woman named nadia who is natasha leone was in orange orange is the new black that we just talked about not is on a journey as the guest of honor at seemingly inescapable birthday party in new york city k- sounds weird already right she is repeatedly and reawakens at the same exact moment in her birthday party in the bathroom at her birthday party and she tries to figure out what's happening to her as as the series goes on it's very clever clever very good writing unique very unique show and i think that's pretty rare these days but i i just wanna say because if you're like me you might have i heard that and said oh so it's like groundhog day or no same concept that's been i'm glad you meant over done over it's not it is i mean from that standpoint her reliving things and trying to get get out of that moment yes but it goes in this totally unforeseen direction that is really difficult to explain but there's definitely a really good payoff at the end so yeah we highly recommend that and that's nope that's going to wrap up our recommendations for net flicks which probably had the largest list honestly and and now we're going to switch to hulu oh so hulu is a streaming service that i use and i think most people are familiar with netflix hulu is one where it actually shows a lot of television shows after they've aired on major networks so i don't have cable i don't watch anything on the regular networks but if i want to stay current on let's say like good place which is on NBC then i will usually catch it weekly on hulu after is i think it's like two days after it airs on tv so i'll usually catch that new can subscribed to hulu very cheaply where you have to watch commercials when you're watching shows or you can pay for the premium witches do you don't get any commercials but they have started project to interject for a minute when you talk about the commercials because we have the cheaper commercial version and we've been watching the handmaid's tale which we're gonna talk talk about right now but you know that's a very intense show and my husband and i are watching it and literally five times however many commercials are in the episode every single time the commercial comes on my husband goes fuck me so upset i mean at first when my husband paid for the premium i'm like like what i don't want to pay more ease the purpose but now i'd be like a commercial but yeah i don't mind i liked i actually like commercials i might be one of those weird people i like commercials sometimes that is weird for other shows i like cava chance to get up and go to the bathroom i like to have mental break i do yeah in the pause button's for exactly what my daughters all right so you could just pause it let's let's let's talk about handmaid's tale shannon mentioned earlier i have watched i this is this is on its third season already so it was released i april twenty six two thousand seventeen the first season had ten episodes second season had thirteen episodes in the third season also has thirteen episodes i believe it still in the process assist of the they're releasing an episode every week and so that's where we are right now and i think it set to conclude at the end of july for season three and this is a show oh i in preparation for this show i actually read the book so it's based on the bestselling novel by margaret atwood and it is a show show that set in gilead which is a totalitarian society in what used to be part of the united states so gilead is ruled by fundamentalist regime team that i mean you could say it's a fundamentalist christian regime that treats women as property of the state it's faced with variety of disasters environmental disasters which has in turn caused a plummeting birthrate their problems with women and fertility and so in a desperate attempt to repopulate the devastated world world they do test women for fruit fertility and they basically force them into sexual servitude and one of these women this is what the show is is based around off red which is of fred fred is her master so.
