It took me a while to get aboard the ATLANTA hype train, but catching the whole 1st season of the series courtesy of HULU, it lives up to the hype,
The multi-talanted Donald Glover crafting an ethnic focused drama, with echoes of Twin Peaks (the first interesting season, not the 2nd horrendously boring 2nd season of twin Peaks) mixed with a wonderful filmic vibe of WHAT’S HAPPENING meets HAPPY DAYS meets MENANCE TO SOCIETY.
I binged the entire ten episode 1st season, and look forward to season 2 breaking on HULU or Blu-ray/DVD.

- STAN AGAINST EVIL – Horror/Comedy/Drama…. it is great’
- THE ORVILLE
- THE STRAIN
- THE MUSKETEERS- These two BBC shows, SPOOKS and THE MUSKETEERS are two of my favorite shows of all time. I’m buying the BLU-RAY of both against the day they get pulled from streaming. Or one of the actors in the future gets villified and they call for all the shows to be burned/removed. That’s right mofos I still have all my ISPY, FAT ALBERT and COSBY shows. As well as the Grammy winning albums. So sit on it and spin. 🙂 (I really don’t know what that means. 🙂 ) And if you don’t know what I’m referring to, go check out my earlier post.
- TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
- THE BIG VALLEY
- THE SAINT
- THE ROCKFORD FILES
- AMERICAN GANSTER
- ROCKY V – A lot of people hate on this fifth entry in the series starring real life Boxer Tommy Morrison (who gives a really good performance), but I love this movie, and its generational overtones. It is a nice, at the time, capper to the series. Rating the movies I would have to go the first two ROCKY films, CREED, than my next favorite one by far, is this film. ROCKY V. ‘I didn’t hear no bell, Tommy. I didn’t hear no bell.’ I Love this movie.
- AWAKEN THE SHADOWMAN
- STARSHIP TROOPERS: TRAITORS OF MARS
- 78/52:HITCHCOCK ‘S SHOWER SCENE
- THE HANGMAN
Still waiting on Season 2 of LEGION and RUNAWAYS to drop on HULU.
That’s it for this installment. Come back for more, or feel free to suggest a VOD channel you want me to do an installement on. Till then be well, be kind, and don’t let big media decide your Gods or your Demons.
