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.

It is a heist with precision and well planned but the thing is that is it going to go as plan? Money Heist covers the story of one complex crime across the whole series (Parts 1 and 2 combined). The beginning of the scene set the series which includes flashback from time to time. Where the robbers came from and how the got recruited. It is fast-paced, with cliffhangers, surprises and an ensemble of characters that is like family. And yes the professor has rules for a successful plan and yes there will be hostages and the police who does not know how to handle this but will caught on later on, maybe.

We follows lieutenant Conde who solve crimes, sleep with beautiful women, drinks alcohol to forget his days, and the internal affair is breathing down his neck to top it all off his boss is watching him closely.
Seasons in Havana is a very stylish, well written crime series it has a fell Neo-noir to it. It is hot in Cuba you can sense the heat as you follow Conde where the landscape is dusty and the sun shine on th top of your head all the time. Conde the drinking smoking, having sex with beautiful women along the way is having a hell of the time to solve murder in Havana with the internal affair breathing down his neck along side his boss. It has 4 episodes of one hour and a half. What I like about it is that Cuba is stuck in time so there is old cars from the 50’s 60’s and still a rotary phone. it is set in the 90’s so no computers yet nor cell phone. The drone shot here is fantastic and you will see the rich and the poor neighborhoods. The atmosphere is noir to the core, the bars, the night life, the crimes, the police corruption as well as the government. Is fun to see this series that is shot on location with the different decor and houses or apartments. The cast is perfect and stand out and so is this wonderful production. Do not miss this one.

James is a 17-year-old who believes he is a psychopath. He kills animals as a hobby, but gets bored with it. He decides he wants to try killing a human. He sees Alyssa, a rebellious 17-year-old classmate with issues of her own. She proposes they run away together, hoping for an adventure away from her not so good home-life, and James agrees with the intention of finding an opportunity to kill her. They takes off on a road trip across England, and begin to develop a relationship after a series of mishaps.
Here is a British dark comedy-drama television program, based on a graphic novel of the same name by Charles Forsman.This eight episodes show follows James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden), two damaged teenagers, as they run away from home to escape from their not so good home lives.The storyline often switches perspectives between the two protagonists with voiceover narration. By the way it is on Netflix in France. This pair of misfits are going on a road trip but after an incident sort of speak the two are going to try to evade the police that are on their tails. Both does not like their life at home so the decided to run away. Little that they know they need each other. The two police officers charged with the case, Detectives Teri Darego (Wunmi Mosaku) and Eunice Noon (Gemma Whelan) form an oddball narrative which they are trying to work out their own complicated romantic mess as their investigations narrows on the two teens. The ending leaves you hanging. Hopefully there will be a second season.

Inspector John Marlott investigates a series of crimes in 19th Century London. As he investigates he finds out it might be a scientist who is experimenting in re-animating the dead.
Yes for Netflix the series is kicking ass big time. Taking form the Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel it takes an approach from it all started at the beginning and yes the series is addictive. John Marlott (Sean Bean), a river cop who discovers the body of a small child on the beach. except it is several pieces of different part from other bodies saw back together. He’s hired by Sir Robert Peel (Tom Ward), an advocate for advanced medicine who’s trying to pass “The Anatomy Act” in Britain. Marlott goes to it but he has a past and has his share of pain plus he has a disease he can’t shake off. Sean Bean is perfect in this role and shines. The decor is perfect it feel dirty and hunger has set in plus the cold damp weather of London sets in. Great writing the series moves along just fine. It is a bit rushed toward the end. It is a solid show that deserved to be watched.

Based loosely on actual events taking place in brazil where an investigation took place because of corruption with the drug dealers, construction companies as well as the petrol company.
Loosely based on true events, Brazilian show The Mechanism is a fast paced crime thriller. The Mechanism is a great ride through the world of corruption in Brazil. The Mechanism’s story focuses on a small group of police officers struggling to uncover corruption leading all the way to the most powerful business men and women in the country. Led by police officer Verena (Caroline Abras) alongside Marco Ruffo (Selton Mello), the 8 episodes see an intriguing game of cat and mouse develop between the police and criminals trying to allude them. What begins as a simple task of capturing known crime boss Ibrahim (Enrique Diaz) quickly discovering the highest levels of corruption in the justice system involving judges, politicians and big name company CEOs. Unbelievable when I was watching this I said to myself the police in Brazil has their hand full. The life of a cop is difficult here trying to get the warrant arrest from the judges who are reluctant to give them to they are corrupted as hell. It takes a toll on the personal life as well. The chemistry is there as well as the acting. It is addictive as hell I finished the series that is on Netflix in France in 3 days.
