GOOD GIRLS (2018- )

good girls

Creator: Jenna Bans

Cast: Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman

Three suburban mothers suddenly find themselves in desperate times and need more money  which all have different money problems. So they decided to rob a supermarket and it turns out they  are up into their neck with  one problem after another.

Here are three women who needs to do something to get out of the rat race that they are in. Beth (Christina Hendricks) wants to get rid of her cheating husband (Matthew Lillard) without losing her house. Her sister, Annie (Mae Whitman), is in a custody battle with her ex (Zach Gilford). Ruby (Retta) has a daughter in need of an expensive medical treatment that must be paid for out of pocket. The series looks like breaking bad but with females but they have bills to pay and need money fast. So they rob a supermarket just to get at least $30,000.  They pull the job off but get a at least $500,000, and come to find out that it is going to open a can of bad worm. Ok great series it has comedy into it and it works but the series seems to forget that crime is a little more serious than that , I know it is just TV. They get into it deep and  how are they going to get out of this deal? No doubt it is just pure fun to watch . Two things that I like it is taking place in Michigan well I lived there 15 years (Maybe it is shot in Canada like everything else those days) and they did not put beautiful thin women for the role like they always do. They put real women, everyday woman who are a little overweight due to the fact they gave birth to kids. Take a look around you people are different shape and form  that is the facts of life in real life. If you want a good ride and laugh this one’s for you.

Happy

Creators: Grant Morrison, Brian Taylor

Cast: Christopher Meloni, Ritchie Coster, Lili Mirojnick

An injured ex-cop turned hitman befriends a kidnapped girl’s imaginary friend – a perky blue flying unicorn who wants him to save the girl.

Here is a terrific series on Netflix It is on the sci-fi channel in the states. Happy is crazy, nuts and on steroid. It is made for Meloni and only him could pull off the role. A girl imaginary friends ask this ex-cop turned hitman to find the girl because only him could do the job; you see the girl sent him but Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) is on the job and gets a password from one of the dying gangsters. The main gangster Blue wants the password but the rest of the scums is after it as well. To top it all off an imaginary friends wants him to help a girl who has been adduced by a bad Santa. You are going to be hooked right off the first episode. The series here is exceptionally smart and twisted and hilarious. It is a wild ride and it never stop until the end of the first season. Plus it is adapted from a comic book. It does not surprise me. There will  be a second season.

Happy! - Season 1

BANKEROT (2014 – )

bankerot_tv_series-562520015-large

Creators: Kim Fupz Aakeson, Malene Blenkov

Cast: Martin Buch, Esben Dalgaard Andersen, Viktor Lykke Clausen

Niklas (9-year-old Viktor Lykke Clausen) wakes up every night to draw the ever more precise contours of a recurring dream: he sees his mother stretched out on the road, overthrown by a driver. An accident that happened  two years ago. Since then, the little boy is no longer talking and Thomas (Martin Buch), his father, has sunk into alcohol. Dion (Esben Dalgaard Andersen), a friend of Thomas, gets out of  prison, but is expected by the Mafia aka  “P’tite Souris” (Nicolas Bro) to whom he owes money …

bankerot

he story evolves around two friends struggling to get their dream restaurant off the ground. They need money and Dion owes money to the Mafia Don (Petite souris). The thing is that Thomas is mounting his wife and can’t move on plus he is left to raise his son. He was the top sommelier who is dyslexic. Dion owes money to the mob plus got pregnant the female prison guard. It seems to me that trouble finds him every where. The actors are outstanding plus the chemistry in near perfect. It is hilarious at times plus there are detours left and right and a few surprises along the way. There the series feels like a modern western kind of cool. The French however copied it and named it Chef. Yes it is good but the second season of Chef is missing something. Anyway Bankerot means Bankrupt in english.

Creator: Lorenzo Semple Jr., William Dozier

Cast: Adam West, Burt Ward, Alan Napier

The fans of Batman are in mourning: the unforgettable Adam West, interpreter of the hero in the series cult and kitsch “Batman” of the Sixties and film “Batman” died this june 9th of leukemia. He was 88 years old. RIP Adam.

During three TV seasons, broadcast between 1966 and 1968 on the ABC channel and a movie at the cinema, the American actor incarnated his hero which the series became cult. In 2016, Adam West had agreed to resume his role for an episode for the series Big Bang Theory which celebrated its 200th episode. Most recently, the actor had lent his voice to the pilot of the Powerless series. Throughout his career, West had repeatedly taken over his Batman character, notably for Batman or Tarzan animated series, or the return of the Caped Crusaders, released last year. Of course he has done other roles in movies.

When I first came to the US in the 70’s a teenager that I knew was watching this all the time. He so loved this series. I did do. Back then ti was the coolest thing. The series now is remastered on Blue ray DVD which I am going to get. The duo had chemistry on-screen. In different episode you will see the Joker (Cesar Romero), the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), the Riddler (Frank Gorshin), and the seductive Catwoman (Julie Newmar). The series became a success and very quickly became cult. Terrific series here to be seen over and over. Thank you for entertain us all those years Adam.

LUCIFER (2015 – )

 

lucifer-2015

Creator: Tom Kapinos

Cast: Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro

Comic book-based TV shows are becoming so common those days I have review more than a few. It is in fashion it seems and people can’t get enough. It’s based on the DC/Vertigo series from the ’90s.

Lucifer Morningstar ( Tom Ellis  ) needs a vacation so he decided to take off for L.A.When we meet him, he’s moved to Los Angeles and opened a nightclub .The ruler of Hell has come to Earth to solve crimes on a weekly basis. He gets hooked up sort with a detective who also happens to be a single mother to the world’s most adorable kid.There are the usual flippant jokes, but our anti-hero who has  a darker more sexual edge also goes to a shrink don’t ask. It seems that Lucifer has the ability to charm any girls he wants except the detective. Plus he is going through some changes well no you are going to have to see the series. Plus, humans can’t help but spill their deepest, darkest secrets to him. This makes the solving of crimes ridiculously easy. There is twist and turn and it is so enjoyable to see. One down fall it is on Fox therefore no nudity or cursing. Well I enjoyed this show with a bottle of whiskey. Sin away if you dare. It is a sinful guilty pleasure hot as hell of a series.

DIX POUR CENT (2015- )

10-pour-cent-2

Creator: Fanny Herrero

Cast: Camille Cottin, Thibault de Montalembert, Grégory Montel

English title: Call my agent 

The  accurate translation here is 10 percent that what is an agent gets from the actor. Inspired by the experience of Dominique Besnehard, a great agent representing many French actors, the series “Dix pourcents” plunges us into the universe of the agency AKS.

The agents Mathias (Thibault de Montalembert), Gabriel (Grégory Montel), Andréa (Camille Cotin) and Arlette (Liliane Rovère) give themselves body and soul to represent their actors and also to incidentally touch … 10% of their cachet. Following the sudden death of Samuel, founder of ASK, the agents and their assistants try to manage the agency as well as possible. and yes the Guest stars are : Cécile de France, Françoise Fabian, Joey Starr, Laura Smet and Nathalie Baye (playing mother and daughter) and more. Ten percent is a successful  French series; Funny dialogues filled with humor, caricatured characters and an ironic look at this facet of the film industry. They include desperate, vain or capricious actors and actresses , tortured filmmakers and outdated and relentless agents. This monstrous little world of the agency ASK, where the “big ones” of this world are found finally seems to be transformed into a place where simple humans coexist. The self-mockery with which Ten percent builds his story and his characters is probably his greatest strength and intelligence. And if the 6 episodes made you want more laughter and glamor, a second season is about to be written. Would you believe that most actors the guest stars were hard to find due to the fact they did not want to play themselves. The series delivers from beginning to end and it is not even boring, It is on Netflix video streaming.
